Part 2 covered the first three seasons of the show, and now we're in the home stretch for the last three!
In Part 1 of this review, I went over the backstory of Highlander: the Series, its origins, and some basic info about the characters. Now it's time to dive into the show itself, with a season-by-season breakdown!

"From the dawn of time we came, moving silently down through the centuries. Living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of the gathering, when the few who remain will battle to the last. No one has ever known we were among you...until now."
With these words, spoken by none other than Sean Connery and followed by a friggin' awesome Queen song, the Highlander saga began...and continued a lot longer than it probably should have, as one awful movie sequel after another followed in the wake of the original film. However, unlike the movies, I thought the spinoff Highlander television series was extremely well done for the most part - so well done that it's my favorite TV show of all time. (Or at least since I started college, watching reruns of it on the Sci-Fi Channel, back when it was called that.) And as you can tell from the title of this blog, it's also the subject of my 100th INCspotlight review!

I have four words for you guys: "Jackie Chan vs. pirates." And yes, it's as awesome as it sounds.
