Highlander the Series premiered in 1992. Following the popular
Highlander movie starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery, the series
was to take fans in a whole new direction. The opening scene featured a
scrolling script read out loud by Adrian Paul, who was to become the
premiere icon of Highlander fandom.
"I am Duncan MacLeod, born four hundred
years ago in the Highlands of Scotland. I am Immortal, and I am not
alone. For centuries we have waited for the Gathering, when the
stroke of a sword and the fall of a head will release the power of the
Quickening. In the end, there can be only one."
In episode 1, Connor MacLeod played by
Christopher Lambert, pays a surprise visit to his cousin, Duncan
MacLeod while chasing down the evil immortal Slan (Richard
Moll). Upon reuniting, Connor does a good job of passing the baton
to Duncan and creating a sense of continuity from movie to series.
The series lasted six seasons, 119
episodes. It finally drew to a close in 1997, the last of the
episodes aired in the Winter of 1998. The writers were careful not
to draw the closing curtain too tightly, however, because Highlander was
to return to the big screen in September 2000, in Highlander
