THE ZONE
The Zone is a burned-out urban wasteland, abandoned by the police, who figure it's easier to just 'let the animals kill each other.' Now the Zone is being taken over by Canaan, a charismatic leader who urges his followers to take the material possessions that have been denied to them. Joe Dawson comes to MacLeod for help - one of his men, who was observing Canaan, has been killed. After MacLeod learns that Canaan is not an Immortal, Dawson is ready to drop it. But MacLeod has seen the misery in the Zone, and is determined to break Canaan's hold.

bulletThis episode saw a co-starring role for Michael G Shanks, who subsequently shot to fame as Daniel Jackson in the superb Stargate SG-1 series.

Verdict
Not bad, considering there's no other Immortals (Richie doesn't count). Okay, so the series isn't as effective when Immortals aren't involved, but the flashback works well and the ending is enjoyable - if predictable. B-
