July 24th, 2017 was a pretty historic day. Kevin, fresh from a 16 hour flight from Australia, was whisked straight away from the hustle and bustle of the Los Angeles International airport, by his co-host Norm, so they could immediately embark on their incredibly important Watcher Field Assignment. Their adventures took them NORTH and deep into California Canyon Country all the way to one of the most beautiful areas that Kevin was visiting for the very FIRST time…RANCHO INDALO!!!
 
Yes, Blood of Kings fans…”THE” Rancho Indalo which is owned and operated by our very own beloved Highlander alumni Anthony DeLongis and his lovely wife Mary. Kevin and Norm had the great honor and opportunity to visit with Anthony, Mary and their doggies Rocky and Shadow…and their four horses!
 
Kevin and Norm had a fantastic time catching up with Anthony and mar and he let us know about a LOT of his upcoming events — which are listed below in the notes. We also talked a great deal about..well…you will just have to listen to find out!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 46: BoK Fan Choice: THE VALKYRIE Part 2: The Commentary

July 26, 2017
00:0000:00
One of the things that Kevin and Norm love most about having created the Blood of Kings Podcast, is the growth of the amazing HIGHLANDER Fan Community on Facebook and Social Media. Listener and fan interaction is incredibly important to promoting new discussions in all aspects of the Highlander universe. One BOK fan in particular, SHAWN DEMPSEY, inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one of his favorite episodes: Season 5’s THE VALKYRIE.
Please join Kevin and Norm as they continue their "deep dive" study of THE VALKYRIE with a full-length episode commentary. Also, please let us know what YOU think about Ingrid "choosing" to become the aspect of the Valkyrie from ancient legend; to be the judge, jury and executioner of those who are to be spared and those who are to be slain. Do Immortals have the right to "abuse" their gift and thus...shape the world of mortal men through the use of that power?

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 45: BoK Fan Choice: THE VALKYRIE Part 1: A Retrospective

One of the things that Kevin and Norm love most about having created the Blood of Kings Podcast, is the growth of the amazing HIGHLANDER Fan Community on Facebook and Social Media.

Shawn wrote to Blood of Kings and stated, "I like the episode THE VALKYRIE because I think it is one of the best written Highlander episodes. There are so many layers to this story. It plays on the old WHAT IF game: If you could go back in time and kill Hitler, would you? But in this case, if you know someone has the potential to be just as bad, should you eliminate them?"  
 
Please join Kevin and Norm as they try to unravel quite possibly one of the most powerful questions that has been raised in the entirety of the Highlander lore and one of the most PERFECT examples of the possible ABUSE of Immortality: Having the time and opportunity to shape the world to one's making no matter the cost.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 44: DESERT ISLAND CHALLENGE!

July 10, 2017
00:0000:00
In Fandom, we LOVE lists: BEST OFs, TOP TENs, FAN FAVORITES...you name it...we love ranking our fandoms and everything within those fandoms. On Episode 37: Getting to Know Your Hosts…Kevin and Norm played a game called DESERT ISLAND CHALLENGE and they decided to really expand the scope of this game for an entire podcast!
 
The rules of DESERT ISLAND CHALLENGE are really simple. The scenario is that you have packed up all of your worldly possessions and are sailing to a new land, similar to the Titanic, when disaster strikes and you only have ONE CHANCE to save only ONE CHOICE of...in this case All Things Highlander from sinking into the abyss. These choices will be the only choices you are allowed to toss into a lifeboat and live with for the rest of your life on a nearby Deserted Island. And yes...you will have a fully functioning entertainment there to enjoy your time alone LOL!
 
For this episode, we are going to start with the TELEVISION SERIES first because we feel that this is really much more difficult than the MOVIE SERIES because there are so many more options to choose from regarding just the television episodes. But fear not, in future DESERT ISLAND episodes, we will tackle all of the other areas of Highlander as well.
 
So with all of this in mind, we would like to also challenge all of you - our Blood of Kings listeners - to play along with us and let us know on FB, or TWITTER or on Social Media - your choices for the HIGHLANDER: Desert Island Scenario.
