ravenela: (Richie first love - Maggie)
Good morning, everyone! Hope you're settling into 2015 well.

So, I've been thinking. I've seen other people rewatching some of their favorite shows and blogging about it. I've also enjoyed a lot of them.

But you know what I want to rewatch? Highlander. HL was my first online fandom, my first love, my intro to everything. I was fifteen and desperately in love with Richie Ryan. (For you young whippersnappers, that's him in the icon. Obviously, Stan Kirsch no longer looks like this and I'm afraid to see what he looks like today.)

I can't promise I'll blog my progress with any kind of regularity, but I'll darn well try. Who wants to rewatch with me? All of the episodes are on Hulu, and I've never seen all of season six (aka, the season that doesn't exist because of reasons). And to those of you who have never seen it, you should totally watch it.

A little background for those who have never seen it:

HL the series branches off from the first movie (totally rent it...it's worth it). Thankfully, they never acknowledged the second one (do not rent it...it is not worth it). Anyway, Duncan MacLeod is Connor MacLeod's cousin (give or take a few decades). He's 400 years old and was born in the highlands of Scotland (as the credits will tell you).

While an Immortal can walk around in the daylight and not have to drink blood (like a vampire), they do live by the code that only one Immortal can be left alive. The only way to kill one is beheading. So, all of the Immortals walk around carrying badass swords and fighting to the death. They're only safe from each other on holy ground (any religion or sacred place will do).

So, who else wants to indulge in this magnificence of 90's fantasy? It's gonna be awesome! We'll start on Thursday.
