ravenela: (Richie first love - Maggie)
[personal profile] ravenela
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.

I would if I have a clue at all where my DVDs are... its in storage somewhere...

And I don't think I've watched s6 completely either. Just the Methos and Joe shows. :P

Stan's apparently teaching acting nowadays, according to Adrian Paul whom I met a couple years ago at a con.

Richie was also my favourite until Methos came along, then it was them both. With Amanda right up there as well. Duncan... well, sometimes I honestly think I could do without him. ;)

Damn it, my Methos icon is on LJ only...

ETA: I totally just googled Stan. He looks AMAZING still! :P

I've heard of Highlander because you can't escape it in popular culture, but never had time to see it (too many shows! not enough hours in the day/life!). It's totally on my 'must watch someday' list tho.

Can you tell me why there's this rule that "there can be only one"? It seems so arbitrary.

The most fun is really reading the fanfic and meta and seeing the reasons that the fans come up with as theories. :) So I'm glad they never explained it!

[personal profile] killabeez is currently running a rewatch of Highlander using two tracks: one, the whole series, and two, Methos-centric episodes.

Last I checked you-tube had full episodes available, for those who dont have the series on hand.

Oh, Highlander. I loved that show ridiculously much. Some of those episodes don't age well - but some of them really do.

Oh I loved Highlander! It was kind of on and off here (weird airing schedules for most SF/fantasy type stuff has been the bane of our country for years apparently, at least until some forms became cool) but Richie was my favourite too! Joe was my second but I liked everyone and I adored Amanda!
