For those of us who liked this show.........

"this DVD has been long awaited. I don't have cable and never saw the Highlander TV show, so I didn't have any prejudices about ripoffs. Lorenzo Lamas is not hard to look at and the demon slaying storylines were appealing to this Buffy/Angel fan. Bret "The Hit Man" Hart was a guest star and I was really hoping he would be a recurring character. And then the show was cancelled. Well, now I'll get to see every episode I missed."

"Why do you Highlander goons want to take shots at Lorenzo? Everyone knows that the lead character in "The Immortal," Raphael Cain, is not based on any Highlander character from the movies, TV show or Animated Series. Nope, Cain is based on Soldier Kelly from the "Snakeeater" trilogy, possibly the greatest action movie trilogy ever. In "The Immortal," you have all the elements that made "Snakeeater" great: the sidekick (Goodwin, the squire, played by Steve Braun), the "he's just misunderstood" psychologist (played by April Telek) and of course, Mr. L2 himself beating and slicing the crud out of everything in sight. Throw in a little demon-slaying action and you've got a new, re-vamped and upgraded "Snakeeater" ready for the jungle that is 21st century syndicated television. Why didn't they let me pitch this idea?

Well, anyway, the series was cancelled before all the episodes were shown (on WGN in my neck of the woods), so if you are a fan of the show, this dvd set is a dream come true. I found the series enjoyable and my only complaint about it was the huge number of commercials. Of course, that complaint is addressed with the dvd collection. I'm looking forward to this, and collectors better snap it up as I doubt there will be many copies made. Looking for the dvd equivalent of the fabled "Mystery Meat" Vinyl LP that sold for thousands of dollars on eBay a couple years back? You may be looking at it!"

"This show used to come on at 3am in the morning while I was working in my home office and I found myself actually looking forward to it.

Yeah, it's corny, yeah it's light weight, yeah it's kinda dumb, yeah it's a rip-off and yeah it looked like it was made on a budget of $200.00 an episode - but who cares. It was not unlike a lot of those series that ran at the time "Cleopatra 2525", "Xena Warrior Princess". Come on, those are great works of art??? All these shows are wonderful cheezy TV. And, every once in awhile they actually turned in a really good episode. They tried hard and I lovem' for it.

There are worse things. Check it out!"

"The Immortal is a pretty obscure, fairly mundane TV show that doesn't really stand out from a half dozen others it blatantly rip off. In fact, the Highlander series is probably superior in many ways, and very similar I might add. I never thought I'd catch myself paying a backhanded compliment to the syndicated Highlander series. I honestly don't know why I bought this - I really have no excuse. It basically follows the "monster of the week" format, and naturally features Lorenzo Lamas beating them up and then eventually stabbing them with a samurai sword. Lamas, by the way, is still basically the same character he was in "Renegade", only now he is immortal and carries a sword. What a stretch."
