Interesting facts

+ Sheena Easton is the last - to date - rock star to appear in Highlander (ignoring Roger Daltrey and Roland Gift's return appearances).

Verdict

Sorry. Despite the interesting stuff about Richie's emergence as an Immortal, the whole Irish question and Annie's relationship with Mac just don't cut the mustard. C+
