Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 11 - Samurai

August 29, 2016
00:0000:00

“You cannot save honor with a lie.” - Hideo Koto

 One of the core elements in Highlander is the study of how Immortals, both good and evil, incorporate the lessons of their pasts and apply them into their lives moving forward. In many cases, Immortals learn from their previous experiences and in turn, forge those moments into their very being which becomes part of their Quickening.

 In arguably one of the TOP 10 Highlander Episodes of all time, Season Three’s THE SAMURAI, Duncan MacLeod meets a mortal man, a Samurai named Hideo Koto, who teaches him not only the “Way of the Warrior” but also what it means to be an HONORABLE man and to live by that very code. It is a lesson that Duncan will carry with him for the remainder of his immortal life; represented by the bequeathed Koto family Dragon Head Katana that Duncan has faithfully wielded for over 200 years as a symbol of his vow to its original master.

 Please join us, your Blood of Kings hosts Kevin “The RaiderNerd” Reitzel and Norman “Starfighter” Lao, as we look deep into one of the most poignant moments in Highlander as THE SAMURAI challenges us to find the moral and the meaning of honor, how it applies to this episode in terms of Highlander canon, and how it has bound Duncan MacLeod to a code that has shaped his very essence as an Immortal.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 10: Band of Brothers, the Episode that Saved Highlander

August 23, 2016
00:0000:00

In this episode of Blood of Kings, we are going to pay a very special honor and focus to what has been hailed as the episode that “changed the landscape of Highlander" and saved the show in the eyes of the audience. We of course are talking about Season One, Episode 13 - Band of Brothers.

 Spirituality and consequences for one's action are at the very center to the tonal development of Highlander and when done right, can elevate Highlander, in any of its forms into truly spectacular storytelling. Here on Blood of Kings we are always looking for when we can really focus on one of these core meanings of Highlander and in this case: How Immortals, like Duncan and Darius, reflect on the fragility and precious gift of mortality.

 Kevin and I also chose this episode for a very special reason. This is our first ANNIVERSARY episode. EPISODE 10 - DOUBLE DIGITS!!! And we would like to thank everyone that has supported us from all the way back to our Fandom Flashback 5-Part Highlander series to now and to all of the fans on the Blood of Kings Facebook page. Almost 500 strong, we cannot thank all the listeners enough for believing in us, supporting us and giving us the inspiration and momentum to keep bringing you Highlander discussion as we can here on Blood of Kings and The Fandom Podcast Network. Enjoy!
