Flashbacks

Interesting facts


+ This is the first of two episodes that Duncan makes no appearance in whatsoever. In fact, none of the 'regular' cast appear.
+ Katherine claims to have posed for the Karma Sutra. Makes for quite a pick-up line.


Verdict


In its favour, Katherine is a potentially interesting character. Against it is poor acting, little or no relevance to the Highlander series and the feeling you're being cheated because it's actually a fifth female Immortal being showcased. C
