What Shall We Talk About?  
Tell me in the comments :)

Yes, I'm bored. Could you tell?

Oh, while I'm here... anyone want me to start up the Highlander episode discussions again? I stopped them during the summer for a break. We were in S5 and had gotten as far as 'Revelation 6:8'. Let me know. I'm perfectly willing to start them up again if there's interest.

A Few More Highlander Remake Thoughts  
On one of the Highlander email lists, I glanced at a few emails on the subject today. There seems to be the sentiment that if only the two sequels had gotten the big budget that the remake's getting, things would have been different. And people seem quite bitter about it. But is that really true? Can you turn a sow's ear into a silk purse? If 'The Source' had had a 55 million dollar budget, it just would have been a more expensive crap movie. In the end, it's the story that makes a movie. If Highlander could grip us with relatively low budget TV episodes, then money isn't the key, IMHO. To my mind, the most hopeful thing about the remake isn't the budget, but that the script is going to be written by people who seem to be able to tell a good story. And a good story is a good story no matter how much money is thrown at it. All the money in the world couldn't have turned 'The Source' into a good movie. Just my good for nothing opinion, of course :)

HLS5: 'Comes a Horseman'  
I haven't posted one of these in a while since interest seemed to have been waning. But I thought there had been enough of a break that we could pick up the discussions again.

Highlander Season Five

Comes a Horseman
Air Date: Feb. 1997

MacLeod knew him as Melvin Koren, a desperado who left a trail of death and fire across the Old West, but Cassandra remembers him as an evil far older. He is Kronos, leader of the Four Horsemen, mounted Bronze Age raiders who murdered, raped, and pillaged their way across two continents. Never was a band of Immortals more cruel or more feared. He destroyed Cassandra's people and she's been hunting him across the millenia. But Kronos has a different target now -- Methos.
