Highlander: The Animated Series

Show Summary

Seven centuries have passed since the Earth plunged into darkness, seven centuries since the Jettator swore to regain from man his lost knowledge and freedom, all the Immortals took the oath, all except one. Who dominates the world, but soon an Immortal will come to confront him, his name is Quentin MacLeod, he is the Highlander. This animated series followed the adventures of Quentin MacLeod, the Last of the MacLeods. Set in a post apocalyptic world almost barren of technology and civilization. The Jettator's or Immmortals oath was to lay down their swords and when Kortan decided not to swear the oath so began the wait for the Highlander. It was contended by this series, which was made before Highlander Endgame that Kortan took Conner MacLeod's quickening.

  • With the Highlander TV show in full swing at the top of it's popularity, and seeing how well BatMan:The Animated Series was doing, they decided to make this kiddie-friendly, family-values drek of a show.moreless

    3.0
    Animation is on par with Thundar the Barbarian, stories that make He-Man seem intellectual, and what this has to do with the Highlander conceived by Gregory Widen is beyond me. Very preachy and moralistic stories about topics like "Nature is good" "Technology is bad" "Be nice to Mother Earth" and "Guns are bad". Yes, one episode is about how bad and dangerous guns are. Good thing all the villains with their tanks, laser cannons, flame-throwers, and swords don't know anything about chemically-propelled projectiles. Every week, Quentin MacCleud breaks into the overlord's fortress. Reasons range from rescuing hostages, being captured and escaping, to the dog needs a flea-bath. Guard #417 is the real star of the show. He's in nearly every episode. Even more than enforcer #471. I'm not sure which is more cute and disgusting: Quentin's sister, or her hexapodial dog. "Quentin MacCleud, the elf-highlander." Why do all Ramirez's speak with scottish accents, even though the Scottish Clansmen are inconsistently wavering between Scots and American? "Oi'm a Schpanisch Grahndee." Yeah, but you're no Sean Connery. I suppose it is good for a giggle. It is moderately better than the Anime Movie,"Highlander:Quest for Vengence" in that you can, if you're into self-inflicted torture, sit through the entire series.moreless
  • What do you got against this show? ... it\'s great!

    9.5
    This show was for the entire Highlander saga sort of thing what Batman Beyond was for Batman saga ... the show is really great ... the stories are good ,voices too ... characters are interesting ... music is also amazing ... it\'s like I\'m watching anime! ... It\'s just too bad that we didn\'t saw final battle between Quentin and Cortan ... If any show deserves lot more attention than it had ,it is this show ... I personally would put a little more sword fights ... Great cartoon ... despite what everybody thinks ,I think this is very good sample of Highlander saga... Recommend it for every Highlander fan... you won\'t be sorry ,believe me!moreless
  • DO YOU LIKE TO LIVE MINUTE BY MINUTE? THEN YOU'LL LOVE TAKING HOME SEASON SIX OF 24. ALSO OUT THIS WEEK IS BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: RAZOR, IN WHICH THE DRAMA BETWEEN CYLONS AND HUMANS CONTINUES TO UNFOLD. AND IF ALL OF THIS SOUNDS TOO SERIOUS FOR YOU AND YOU NEED SOME LAUGHS, ALSO OUT IS TYLER PERRY'S HOUSE OF PAYNE VOLUME ONE.
