The Highlander A-Z

Your definitive guide to the Highlander TV universe
 
Welcome to The Highlander A-Z
Welcome to the world of Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander (the TV incarnation, at any rate). Most people know of the movie Highlander, starring Frenchman Christophe Lambert as Scottish lunk Connor MacLeod, and Scotsman Sean Connery as Egyptian/Spanish peacock Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez. It's the one with the Queen soundtrack. Anyway, don't fret: this site is not dedicated to that movie.

This site is dedicated to the Highlander TV series, which debuted in 1992 and ran for six seasons. This series is set in an alternate universe to the original movie. In this universe, The Game didn't end in 1985, and there are hundreds of Immortals still living among us, pretending to be regular guys while occasionally lopping off heads in darkened alleys when they think no one's looking.

This site began its life as a four-page feature in British sci-fi magazine Cult TV back in 1997. Cult TV sadly no longer exists, but this site has now been going - on and off - since 1998. This is its third major redesign.

Site contents
The contents of this site can be broken up into the following sections - and you'll find links to them on the right-hand side of the page from wherever you are inside The Highlander A-Z. These sections are as follows:

bulletThe A-Z itself - your online encyclopedia to the world of Duncan MacLeod (and now Amanda too).
bulletA timeline of Duncan's life, from his birth in 1592 to the present day
bulletAn episode guide of the entire series (and Highlander: Endgame movie), featuring full technical details, trivia and my own personal ratings for each and every episode. This now encompasses Highlander: The Raven too.
bulletA map of where Duncan's been, with details of what he's done there and who he copped off with - coming soon (honest!)
bulletA brief guide to the immortals who inhabit Duncan's universe

Search the A-Z
Just use the box below to search this site for specific content, or even to just search the Web. If you'd like to search the Highlander A-Z from your browser's toolbar, download the SupportPCs Toolbar here, which ties in with the search engine below (just select Highlander A-Z from the Search drop-down menu to use it). And yes, it's free of spyware and adware. SupportPCs is run by myself and Joe Cassels, and includes many useful PC-based tutorials and tips. Visit it here.

Anything else?
Not really. If you'd like to explore Highlander further, the series has been released on box-set - one box per season - through Anchor Bay Entertainment in the US, and I've been picking up my copies in the UK from Enterprises DVD (do a search for Highlander). All six seasons are now available, as is the short-lived spin-off series, Highlander: The Raven.

I've not yet seen the fifth Highlander movie (Highlander: The Source), which went straight to TV when it was finally released in September 2007. When I do get around to watching it, I'll add the details to this site. Find out more at its official site, here. Star Adrian Paul is also Executive Producer, and recorded a diary during filming, which you can read here.

If you fancy finding out more about the person who built and maintains this site, please visit my personal Web page here. Thanks for visiting, and remember, if you think there can only be one, you plainly haven't seen this hugely entertaining TV series...

Site highlights
I've tried to make this site as individual as possible. It's based largely on my own observations - the episode guide, for example, contains plenty of fresh material you won't find elsewhere. Unless they ripped me off. Or possibly vice versa.

Tongue-in-cheek
I'm a massive fan of the series, but I'm British, which means I have to lampoon the whole thing slightly. After all, I don't want people to think I'm that obsessed with a show that's been off the air for eight years, do I? Even if it's true...
