Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 72: CIMOLI'S CHOICE - The Immortal Cimoli Part One: The Retrospective
 
For this special CIMOLI'S CHOICE episode, the Blood of Kings team has made special arrangements with Watcher's Headquarters to bring in an EXPERT in the subject for this week's podcast. With Norm on this episode of Blood of Kings, is fellow Highlander expert and the main editor for Blood of Kings...Mike Sellers. 
 
Norm discusses with Mike: Why is the Immortal Cimoli so near and dear to Mike that it earned his EDITOR'S PICK (known as Cimoli's Choice) for the subject matter of a Blood of Kings podcast over ALL other episodes...except for Season 3's Take Back the Night which we covered in Blood of Kings podcasts 48 and 49.
 
Also, we discuss in great detail one of the most misunderstood Immortal "villains" in Highlander: The Series - Damon Case. Many fans think of him as "evil", but is that a fair assessment of who he is? Is Damon Case a villain...OR is he solely playing by the strict rules of the game and does that make him evil because he is at certain odds with our HERO Duncan MacLeod?
 
So please join Norm and Mike for PART ONE of a two part deep dive RETROSPECTIVE into the world of The Immortal Cimoli

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Kingmaker #8 Special: Interview with Amanda herself, Elizabeth Gracen!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Kingmaker #8 Special: Interview with Amanda herself, Elizabeth Gracen!

 
Welcome Highlander Fans to a very special Kingmakers Episode on Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast, here on the Fandom Podcast Network. We interview the amazing Elizabeth Gracen!
 
Recently on Blood of Kings episodes #70 & #71, we covered the Highlander The Raven two part episodes "A Matter of Time" & " The French Connection". Once again, our beloved Elizabeth Gracen takes center stage as AMANDA, our favorite mischievous cat-burglar from Highlander The TV Series. Kevin and Norman are proud to present this exclusive interview with star of Highlander The Raven, Amanda Darieux herself... Elizabeth Gracen!

In this exclusive interview, we talk to Elizabeth about her experience at the Highlander Worldwide Convention in Los Angeles last October of 2017. We also discuss her and Adrian's amazing performance in "Love Letters" at that convention. Then we dive deep into Highlander The Raven as Elizabeth talks about the production moving from Vancouver to Toronto, working with Helen Wu and learning the martial art of The Flying Rainbow Fan Kata. We keep discussing The Raven production with Elizabeth and working again with Jim Byrnes and Valentine Pelka. We also ask the big question... where does Amanda hide that sword?

But it wouldn't be a Highlander interview unless we talk to Elizabeth about her experience working on the original Highlander TV series. Norman and Kevin discuses the episodes that Amanda appeared in, and their favorites. Elizabeth also talk about her favorite episodes and moments from the Highlander TV series. And last but not least, we talk to Elizabeth about the many projects she's currently working on including the documentary about Lee Meriwether, Cat Woman from the 1966 Batman movie and former Miss America in 1954, the year of the first live telecast.

 
On behalf of Blood of Kings, Kevin and Norman would like to thank the lovely Elizabeth for her time and this awesome interview! Oh and you get to hear Norman "fan boy" for a bit, LOL! Enjoy the show!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 71: Highlander The Raven / Episode Review Part 2: The French Connection
 
Kevin and Norm continue their discussion on Highlander THE RAVEN with PART TWO of a two-part in-depth look at two incredibly pivotal episodes of the first and only season of the series: A Matter of Time and The French Connection.
 
Once again, our beloved Elizabeth Gracen takes center stage as AMANDA, our favorite mischievous cat-burglar from Highlander: The Series. Along with her intrepid co-star Paul Johansson as the relentless Nick Wolf, and in the very best of the Highlander: The Series' traditions, they return to the city of Paris and a location that is very near and dear to the hearts of Highlander fans all over the world. Also returning is the legendary Valentine Pelka in a completely new role as the charismatically evil "James Bond level" of villain...Andre Korda.
 
According to the great JOHN MOSBY, "A Matter Of Time / The French Connection are the watershed episodes for The Raven, the moment where the series fully embraces its Highlander heritage...in more ways than one." - Fearful Symmetry: The Essential Guide to All Things Highlander

DiscoVille: A Star Trek DISCOVERY and THE ORVILLE Podcast Episode 18: Quantum Leap Drive - The Orville Season One Retrospective

DiscoVille: A Star Trek DISCOVERY and THE ORVILLE Podcast
Episode 18: Quantum Leap Drive - The Orville Season One Retrospective
 
Since the Season Finale of THE ORVILLE on December 7th, 2017, The Orville fanbases online and around the world have been deprived of a show that gained so much momentum and respect for a series that most expected to go nowhere...and some expect to be flat out cancelled as is the FOX network's tradition with most of its science fiction programming.
 
Season Two has recently started filming so that means its the perfect time to engage the QUANTUM DRIVE and LEAP all the way back to early September 2017 for our REWATCH with a look back at Season One and how it changed and challenged the landscape of science fiction TV as we know it!
 
We will be covering ALL of The Orville Season One on this and many upcoming DiscoVille podcasts, so this is the PERFECT time for NEW Orvillians to join us. We will also be discussing many of the heavier Star Trek: The Next Generation influences that helped shape The Orville with our special guest star Amy Nelson's expertise, as she draws several interesting parallels between The Orville and ST: TNG.
 
So let's make sure our sodas are in their cup holders and the Bridge cat is safe and snug as we ENGAGE the QUANTUM DRIVE!!!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 70: Highlander The Raven / Episode Review Part 1: A Matter of Time
 
On this 70th episode of Blood of Kings, Kevin and Norm return to Highlander THE RAVEN with PART ONE of a two-part in-depth look at two incredibly pivotal episodes of the first and only season of the series: A Matter of Time and The French Connection. Once again, our beloved Elizabeth Gracen takes the center stage as AMANDA, our favorite mischievous cat-burglar from Highlander: The Series along with her intrepid co-star Paul Johansson as the relentless Nick Wolf...and the return of Highlander alumni Jim Byrnes reprising his legendary role as Watcher Joe Dawson, and...Valentine Pelka in a completely new role as the charismatically evil Andre Korda.
 
According to the great JOHN MOSBY, "A Matter Of Time / The French Connection are the watershed episodes for The Raven, the moment where the series fully embraces its Highlander heritage...in more ways than one." - Fearful Symmetry: The Essential Guide to All Things Highlander
 
Kevin and Norm also take a very detailed look at one of the most signature elements of A Matter of Time; a flashback scene where Elizabeth Gracen's Amanda learns The FLYING RAINBOW FAN Martial Art from THE MASTER of this art, Helen Wu, who's teachings inspired Elizabeth to pursue this art beyond the series into creating her very own teaching workshop: Elizabeth Gracen's Fan Kata Class.
