I surprisingly enjoyed it
21 February 2002 | by kryptangelSee all my reviews

theres a load of Highlander fans who see this series as a travesty but I found it kinda fun. In its own right it introduced the highlander mythos to an audience who might not know about the highlander movies. If you look at it as a seperate body its quite enjoyable and I was amused to see the main villain followed the formula of the main bad guy's name starting with K. All things being equal if yer a fan of the mythos then the series is at least worth a look tho HL purists my find it sort of lacking
