Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 55: THE PRIZE…What Is It REALLY Worth?

October 31, 2017
00:0000:00
In the LORE of Highlander…the very last Immortal still alive at the end of the Gathering wins THE PRIZE; the ULTIMATE POWER from the knowledge and experiences of all the Immortals that have ever existed, becoming MORTAL and being able to have CHILDREN.

But what is the cost to achieve this ultimate PRIZE? What DRIVES Immortals to endure the pain, the loss, the sacrifice, the suffering and the loneliness that comes with fighting throughout decades, centuries, even millennia - watching their friends, their lovers, loved ones, even fellow Immortals die along the way to the time of The Gathering. Is the fight for THE PRIZE really worth all of this? Or is there something greater at stake in the eternal battle between GOOD and EVIL?
 
Join your Blood of Kings podcasters on this truly enlightening episode as Kevin and Norm try and make sense of what THE PRIZE means in the lore of the Highlander universe. NOTE: This episode was recorded BEFORE The Gathering Convention in Los Angeles so there are references to the convention that has already taken place.

DiscoVille: A Star Trek DISCOVERY and THE ORVILLE Podcast Episode 3: The Frenemy Within

October 18, 2017
00:0000:00
Welcome to DiscoVille where we discuss both Star Trek Discovery AND The Orville here on the Fandom Podcast Network. On this show we take an in-depth look at each of these shows and discover that both of them can co-exist in today's fandom...as they introduce us to fresh, new and exciting stories, characters, galactic destinations and so much more! On this episode of DiscoVille, we discuss:

The Orville Episode 6
Krill: After defeating a Krill warship attacking a nearby colony, which left a fully functioning Krill shuttlecraft adrift in the debris, Captain Ed Mercer and Lt. Gordon Malloy are given a mission that is vital to culturally understanding the enemy. But what they discover on board a Krill Warship, tests both of their mettle as they have to choose between the lesser of two evils...or even possibly three.
 
Star Trek Discovery Episode 5
Choose Your Pain: En route back to the Discovery from a Starfleet debriefing, Captain Lorca is abducted by a Klingon D-7 and thrown into a prison cell with Harcourt Fenton "Harry" Mudd (played brilliantly by Rainn Wilson). Mudd reminds Lorca that the "little" people are tired of being caught in Starfleet's crossfire and maybe it was Starfleet’s ARROGANCE to "boldly go" that may have forced the Klingons to push back in the first place.
 
Also on DiscoVille, we have some great selections for the Omega 13 device AND our Subspace Signals intercept a transmission from Social Media that is creating a disturbance amidst the fan communities, and has been for quite some time.
 
Star Trek is back on TV where it belongs, along with it's spiritual sister show The Orville...and many fans have embraced them both. Let's see what's out there!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 54: The ARMORY Chronicles / The Weapons of Highlander Season One

October 16, 2017
00:0000:00
On this episode of Blood of Kings, we will be discussing the "primary" weapons used in Season One of Highlander the Television Series. These weapons, specifically SWORDS were the most signature ways that Immortals were able to survive the game, as they use their weapon of choice, and the martial skills they learned over the course of decades, centuries…even millennia to behead their opponent and gain their Quickening. Many of these swords were actually sold through the Noble Collection and Museum Replicas catalogues in the early to late 1990's and were perfect reference materials when trying to identify these Immortals' swords when we, the fans, originally watched the series in it's original broadcast run.
 
However, in a duel to the death, not every element went according to an Immortal’s plan, or a code of honor, or they just plain NEEDED an IRON PIPE if there was one handy; i.e. whatever worked to get the job done. #teamrionpipe
 
We on Blood of Kings also have to give credit where credit is due and we HAVE to give a shoutout to Blood of Kings member DANIEL JACOB HORINE who has created one of the most comprehensive sword profile guides we have ever seen; which was used several times in our research as a reference to quantify and correlate certain swords and their corresponding immortal users and episode appearances. BRAVO DANIEL…your hard work is absolutely worthy of the highest praise!
