Episode 65: Highlander ENDGAME: The Commentary

Please join your Blood of Kings team as they continue their "deep dive" study of ENDGAME, the fourth movie of the cult classic Highlander franchise. In this podcast, Kevin and Norm enjoy deconstructing one of the most beloved films in Highlander Cinematic Universe, as ENDGAME also marked the reunion of both Duncan AND Connor MacLeod who were last seen together on the television series premiere episode THE GATHERING...25 years ago.

However, not all went according to the general Highlander fandom's expectations. All of the pieces were in place for this film to succeed where the sequels Highlander 2: The Quickening (and its subsequent versions) and Highlander 3: The Final Dimension stumbled and many times failed to extend the legacy of what the first film achieved, cementing the epitaph "There Can Be Only One...FILM!". With several mis-fires in the theatrical version, Highlander ENDGAME, could have changed the paradigm for the future. However, fan expectation for this film in particular was incredibly high and the internet was becoming a viable tool to share much of the fans concerns...especially where the "rules of the game" - a staple element of the Highlander universe - were forcibly changed to usher in a "whole new ball game" as one of the characters stated.
Please join the Blood of Kings team as they present to you PART TWO of their deep dive study on Highlander ENDGAME!

DiscoVille: A Star Trek DISCOVERY and THE ORVILLE Podcast
Episode 14: Looking for Lorca In All The Wrong Places
 
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.
 
On this podcast titled "Looking for Lorca In All The Wrong Places" - we extensively cover Star Trek DISCOVERY'S Episode 12 VAULTING AMBITION as The Orville is on hiatus until later this Fall 2018. Discovery is certainly living up to it's series name as we are finally "discovering" in this slow burning and dramatic unveiling...who is the REAL Captain Gabriel Lorca...but more importantly...WHY Michael Burnham means so much to him and his plans. Also...we discover that there is a certain Imperial Delicacy and a new meaning behind "Keep your friends close...but keep your Kelpian friends closer!" We also take a moment to discuss "The World of the Orville" - the first "official" book that covers the making of and behind the scenes of Seth MacFarlane's hit TV series on the Fox Network.
 
Sitting in with us and manning the FPN dining room for this episode is our incredibly talented co-founder, editor extraordinaire and our personal chef who prepares Kelpian as finely as any imperial chef...Kyle Wagner.
 
Thanks to everyone out there for tuning in and supporting our show and for making this podcast so incredibly fun to do for all or you. And thank you to our Facebook and Social media followers for sending in so many fantastic questions and comments of which we were able to address several in this show.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 64: Highlander ENDGAME: The Retrospective

Episode 64: Highlander ENDGAME: The Retrospective
 
In September of 2000, Highlander ENDGAME was released to world-wide audiences as the fourth movie of the cult classic Highlander franchise. This film was the very first appearance of Adrian Paul as Duncan MacLeod on the BIG screen, after enjoying a wonderful and successful 6 season run on the critically acclaimed television series of this same franchise. ENDGAME also marked the reunion of both Duncan AND Connor MacLeod who were last seen together on the television series premiere episode THE GATHERING, as Christopher Lambert reprised his iconic role of Connor MacLeod; the character that launched this franchise nearly 32 years ago in 1986.

However, not all went according to the general Highlander fandom's expectations. All of the pieces were in place for this film to succeed where the sequels Highlander 2: The Quickening (and its subsequent versions) and Highlander 3: The Final Dimension stumbled and many times failed to extend the legacy of what the first film achieved, cementing the epitaph "There Can Be Only One...FILM!". With several mis-fires in the theatrical version, Highlander ENDGAME, could have changed the paradigm for the future. However, fan expectation for this film in particular was incredibly high and the internet was becoming a viable tool to share much of the fans concerns...especially where the "rules of the game" - a staple element of the Highlander universe - were forcibly changed to usher in a "whole new ball game" as one of the characters stated.

Episode 13: A VoQ in Sheeps Clothing
 
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.
 
On this episode titled "A VoQ in Sheep's Clothing"...as The Orville is on hiatus until later this Fall 2018, we discuss exclusively Star Trek DISCOVERY: Episode 11 A WOLF INSIDE. From character reveals that get dropped on unsuspecting audiences like a Tri-Cobalt warhead...to plot twists and turns more volatile than unstable wormholes, Discovery continues to have audiences clinging on its every storytelling second as no one is exactly who they appear to be in the Mirror Universe. To borrow a familiar phrase...TRUST NO ONE. 
 
Sitting in with us and manning the negotiating tables for this episode is our Chief Engineer and co-Firewolf of the ALIEN REBEL NETWORK - Mr. Kyle Wagner.

Who knows...we might even be near your neck of the woods for an upcoming 2018 Sword Experience or even a trip abroad!

Episode 12: Black Mirror Mirror on the Wall
 
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.
 
On this episode titled Black Mirror Mirror on the Wall, we discuss not only the explosive mid-season series return of Star Trek Discovery (January 8th, 2017), but in lieu of The Orville being on "hiatus" until later this year, we decided to take a look at the critically acclaimed Season 4 Premiere of the Netflix Series BLACK MIRROR titled USS CALLISTER, which was a VERY dark look at an incredibly thought provoking issue...skinned in a very familiar science-fiction franchise.

Sitting in with us and manning the Agonizer Booths for this episode is our Chief Engineer and co-founder of the TERRAN EMPIRE NETWO....I mean Fandom Podcast Network - Mr. Kyle Wagner.

 
Thanks to everyone out there for tuning in and supporting our show and for making this podcast so incredibly fun to do for all or you. We are excited to be back on the air and look forward to another fantastic season of DiscoVille in 2018. HAPPY NEW YEAR from all of us at The Fandom Podcast Network!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 62: Blood of Kings Season 2...The Year in Review
 
Your Blood of Kings FOUR HORSEMEN - Kevin, Norm, Mike and Kyle (hmmm...two K's for Ken Gord's K equation!) - ride all together once again to discuss Blood of Kings Season 2 "The Year in Review!" Season Two of our podcast was just a phenomenal year for us and so many incredible things happened...but it all started two years ago with a very fortuitous phone call in January of 2016, when Kevin reached out to Norm with an extremely brilliant idea for the Fandom Podcast Network; to create a show solely focused on the Highlander franchise!
 
Over 60 episodes later - starting with the FPN Highlander 30th Anniversary Commentary and the FANDOM FLASHBACK 5 part series, your Blood of Kings team worked incredibly hard to bring the Highlander community - thoughtful and insightful commentary to all things Highlander. Please enjoy our YEAR IN REVIEW and stay tuned because as good as 2017 was for Blood of Kings...2018's Season Three is going to be even better!
 
THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you, our BELOVED Blood of Kings Facebook and online family. We love producing this show for you and it is so inspiring to know that there is still this incredible HIGHLANDER franchise family that cares about the legacy so very much. We do this show for YOU!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 61: BoK Fan Choice: DUENDE Part 2: The Commentary

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 61: BoK Fan Choice: DUENDE Part 2: The Commentary
 
Please join your Blood of Kings team as they continue their "deep dive" study of DUENDE, as chosen by our very first iTunes review contest winner LEE FILLINGSNESS. In this podcast, Kevin and Norm enjoy deconstructing one of the most famous episodes in Highlander The Series and discover even deeper ands more complex meanings and motivations behind one of Highlander's greatest villains...Otavio Consone.
 
Lee chose DUENDE for several special reasons. He wrote to Blood of Kings, "The art of Destreza has fascinated me ever since this episode and it opened my eyes to the intricacy of western martial arts. To that point I had done sport fencing and pretended to be Robin Hood." He continued, "I also appreciated the dance aspect in this show because it illustrated one of the more interesting elements of Duncan, his sophistication."
 
DUENDE is an episode of Highlander that is also extremely special because friend of the show Anthony De Longis created the indelible Otavio Consone; an Immortal who's morality was as complex as his fighting style of La Verdadera Destreza. Anthony also introduced Highlander fans to the beauty and the allure of the Mysterious Circle and a fighting philosophy that he introduced to many through this episode of television, for the very first time. Please join us as we take an incredibly in-depth look at what is easily in the TOP 10 if not TOP 5 episodes of most Highlander fans and discover a few NEW things about this beloved story.
