    But, after 8 or so years of giving it a chance (the Series, the sequels, even the effing cartoon!), the mythology just ended up seeming vapid and empty...
    I'm just talking about the original movie, not the rest of the franchise. I never bothered to learn about the rest of the 'mythos' in the series. I just like that one, first movie.

    For some reason I thought the original Highlander was great but then I watched it again (in fact bought the DVD) and changed my opinion that it was crap; especially the second half. I noticed others have had a similar experience.
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    I actually liked the show.

    Still, I wish the mythology had more substance...

    Whenever I look at something related to 'Highlander', in my mind, an empty "pang!" is struck...

    It's the sound of hollowness...
