Trivia
bulletChristopher Lambert reprises his role of Connor MacLeod from the Highlander movie series.
bulletIt is obvious that the TV series takes place in an alternate universe to the movies.
bulletWe also learn that Duncan and Connor met in London in 1835, and that Connor was Duncan's teacher once upon a time. Their first meeting is chronicled in the movie Highlander: Endgame.
bulletThe events of the flashback in 1872 are re-visited in two follow-up episodes - C2, 'Line of Fire', and D13, 'Something Wicked'.

Verdict
A hit-and-miss affair to kick things off, with Richard Moll's Slan Quince just one step away from a mustachioed-twirling villain. C+
