This season saw the ever noble immortal Duncan McCloud having to deal with Tessa's death, Richie's new found immortality, facing the mutually repressed feelings he & fellow immortal Amanda have for one another, & the first multi-episode story involving Methos, the oldest known living immortal. These episodes showed an intruiging look into male bonding & the angst that friedship can bring to all concerned. From episode one "The Samurai" to episode nine "Shadows" to the "Finale" episodes numbers twenty one to two. They all spotlighted & magnified the human condition that was relatable even to we non-immortals. Would any of us really want to live forever?
Plus, almost every epiode has three bonus features. Outakes, cut scenes, behind the scenes with cast & crew, interviews, & information on the Watcher Chronicles characters. There are also special features which include a blooper reel & promos. Lastly, several episodes have both video & audio commentary.
Season Three came out less than 4 months after Season Two, which was a nice surprise for Highlander fans. I will gladly forego digital remastering if anything like this release schedule can be maintained. The DVD image is already so much better than on that shelf of videotapes I recorded off the air, takes up a fraction of the space, won't deteriorate over time like tapes do, and gives us all the extra materials. A very well-produced, worthwhile and substantial release. Let's hope that Season Four is already in the works.
And for good reason.
You thought season two was great? Then you'll love season three! Season three brought many changes to the series, and is one of the most beloved and greatest seasons of the show. Season one was enjoyable, season two was a great improvement, but season three was a masterpiece.
The season opens with "The Samurai", which explains Duncan's origins as a martial arts master and lord of the sword (hey - that rhymes!). By now, Joe Dawson (played by Jim Byrnes) was a regular, and Amanda (Elizabeth Gracen) began to become one of the most frequently-seen characters. Of course, one of the greatest Highlander villains was also introduced - Kalas, who featured in most of the episodes from mid-season on. One of these, "Star-Crossed", featured the return of the beloved Hugh Fitzcairn (The Who's Roger Daltrey) and also bid him goodbye!
There was also "Methos", the episode that introduced Peter Wingfield's ages-old immortal who is now arguably the most popular character in the Highlander universe. The series ended with a terrific two-parter, "Finale", which featured both Amanda and Methos. Fans will be pleased! [9/10]
Season three has the best picture yet. The quality of the image is great. The episodes are, like all the rest of the show's seasons, in full screen format. [9/10]
Season three perfects the 5.1 surround mix.Read more ›
