Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 49: CIMOLI’S CHOICE: Take Back the Night Pt. 2 The Commentary

August 15, 2017
00:0000:00

Please join Mike "CIMOLI" Sellers and Norm as they continue their "deep dive" study of TAKE BACK THE NIGHT with a full-length episode commentary. Once again, as many of the most powerful episodes do - Take Back the Night raises so many complicated and interesting points about how HIGHLANDER approaches the blessing or curse of Immortality.

Do you think MacLeod was being hypocritical towards Ceirdwyn bout "revenge solves nothing" - especially with all of the revenge he's exacted on HIS enemies. Or do you think Duncan is really starting to feel weight and guilt of all of those he has killed in his personal crusades?

In many ways, we felt that this episode was a spiritual predecessor to Season 5’s Forgive Us Our Trespasses as we continue to study Duncan’s lust for revenge after the aftermath of Culloden. What would Ceirdwyn have told Duncan in light of Stephen Keane’s damnation of Duncan’s crimes? Would SHE have turned his words back on him? Would she have been able to have bridged an easier peace between MacLeod and Keane?

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 48: CIMOLI’S CHOICE: Take Back the Night Pt. 1 The Retrospective

August 9, 2017
00:0000:00
On this very special CIMOLI’S CHOICE episode, we have the Blood of Kings editor extraordinaire Mike Sellers who was really excited to delve deeply into one of his favorite episodes of all time: Take Back the Night!
 
In his own words, “Not only am I a sword nut, but I'm a bit of a history buff. I didn't take classes in college, I went to art school. So any history knowledge I have picked up is from my own research. Give me swords, history and a strong female character and I'm all in.” 
 
One of the key elements in this episode is the aspect of “Mortal versus Immortal FRAILTY” and how Immortals DO have the ability to weigh and judge and continue their crusades over the generations, whilst mortals who share their lives amidst the game are always in harm’s way. Like Ingrid in The Valkyrie...DO Immortals have the right to become judge, jury and executioner because they have the ability to risk more to do so? More importantly...have the time to maintain and foster that ever-burning grudge spanning decades if not centuries?
 
Another reason why both Mike AND Norm love this episode is because of its close connection with Highlander: THE COLLECTIBLE CARD GAME where CEIRDWYN was one of the more interesting Immortal Personalities (or PERSONAS) to play as she relied heavily on the strength of her allies, much like she did in her episode Take Back the Night

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 47: HIGHLANDER ROCKS: QUEEN - A Kind of Magic

August 2, 2017
00:0000:00
QUEEN is one of the most signature Rock and Roll bands of ALL TIME and certainly the most ICONIC within the world of HIGHLANDER. From their signature bombastic opening title track "Princes of the Universe" in March of 1986, QUEEN cemented their sonic legacy amidst the lore and legend of Highlander decades over with that very same thematic title song anchoring the historic six season run of the television series. It is almost impossible and unfathomable to think of the Highlander universe without their music at the center and as the heart and soul of the franchise.
 
In early 1986, QUEEN recorded the album A KIND OF MAGIC, containing several reworkings of songs written for the fantasy action film Highlander and the close collaboration between QUEEN, Highlander director Russell Mulchaey and original score composer Michael Kamen fostered an incredibly creative environment producing one of the greatest UNOFFICIAL movie albums of all time!
 
Please join your co-hosts Kevin and Norm, along with their special guest and Highlander/80’s aficionado Erin Gill, as they usher in the very first HIGHLANDER ROCKS themed episode to Blood of Kings. Discover their love for QUEEN, the tracks that ALMOST made it into the album, and even your podcasters favorite tracks. And please forgive Norm for his singing because in Highlander…THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE…and that the ONE and ONLY...Freddy Mercury! Enjoy!!!
