Episode 79: SEE IT OR SKIP IT Part 2: Highlander Season 2
 
Highlander Season 2: See It or Skip It? The Paris Episodes!
Kevin and Norm are excited to discuss the Highlander Television Series again at length and detail! Your Blood of Kings hosts wanted to take a very special look at Highlander SEASON TWO with fresh eyes and a fresh perspective and weigh-in, per episode, on whether you should SEE IT - OR SKIP IT! We always recommend new fans to Highlander to watch all episodes, but for a re-watch, we have our suggestions on what to See, or Skip. This is PART TWO of our review. We cover the PARIS second half of season two, from episodes such as:

-  Unholy Alliance: Part 2
-  The Vampire
-  Pharaoh's Daughter 
-  Legacy 
-  Counterfeit: Part 1 & 2

There are several episodes that changed everything in Highlander Season Two, and many more that also added to the wonderful Highlander mythology.

 
Again, we would like to thank JOHN MOSBY for allowing us to read the Season Two Episode summaries from his book FEARFUL SYMMETRY: The Essential Guide to All Things Highlander and you should have this with you as we are evaluating these episodes. You can find FEARFUL SYMMETRY: The Essential Guide to All Things Highlander at Amazon.com. You can purchase it here: 
https://www.amazon.com/Fearful-Symmetry-Essential-things-Highlander/dp/1519…
Please support John and this book because it really is the ultimate resource for Highlander fans.
 
This particular fun podcasting format was inspired by Kevin and Norm's friends Bill Smith and Dan Davidson who on their podcast TREKGEEKS, review Star Trek seasons in this very same manner and advise to their listeners regarding which episodes are worth their viewing time and those that can be set aside.
 
We would LOVE to hear from all of you out there in the Blood of Kings listening audience to see if you agree or disagree with our list on this episode so please make sure to get in touch with us!

Blood of Kings 077: The Highlander Animated Series: The Courage Of Love and The Set up

"Seven centuries have passed since the Earth plunged into darkness. Seven centuries since the Jettator's swore to regain from man his lost knowledge and freedom. All the Immortals took the oath, all except one, who dominates the world. But soon an Immortal will come to confront him. His name is Quentin Macleod! He is...The Highlander!"

Join your Blood of Kings co-hosts Kevin and Norman on THEIR quest to uphold their mission statement and explore ALL things Highlander. As they circle back to reviewing Highlander: The Animated Series, Kevin and Norman take a deeper look at the next two episodes in the series line-up: The Courage Of Love and The Set up. Much to their surprise, Kevin and Norman have been growing more fond of Highlander the Animated series with each and every episode. So they decided to continue their journey with Highlander: The Animated Series with this SECOND part of a special TWO-PART retrospective of FOUR animated episodes. Kevin and Norman consider these Highlander: The Animated Series episodes as "New Highlander" for them, because they are both watching this for the very first time together!

The ultimate fight between good and evil continues as Quentin, Don Vincente Marino Ramirez, Clyde and Gaul seek out the Quickenings of the surviving Jettators which will allow Quentin to destroy Kortan, save the human race and restore peace to the world.

“ETERNAL POWER TO KORTAN!” “ETERNAL POWER TO KORTAN!”

Also, Kevin and Norm had the opportunity to do a very fun and informative interview with #SWORDXP Musketeer Priscilla Manriquez and 2 time Sword XP veteran Tammy Buckner as they recount their adventures from the Lexington Kentucky Sword Experience on March 9th, 2018.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 73: CIMOLI’S CHOICE - The Immortal Cimoli Part Two: The Commentary

April 9, 2018
00:0000:00
Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 73: CIMOLI'S CHOICE - The Immortal Cimoli Part Two: The Commentary
 
Continuing their discussion from Episode 72, both Norman C. Lao and Mike Sellers dive even deeper with a LIVE...well recorded "live" commentary on Highlander: The Series THE IMMORTAL CIMOLI from Season Four.
 
During the commentary, both Norm and Mike discover so many nuanced and revealing character moments in the development of Danny Cimoli as he learns how to use and abuse his newly discovered immortal ability. Danny just wanted to have his moment in the literal spotlight. However this ignorance and immaturity towards THE GAME strained his relationships with Duncan and Amanda as they tried to give hime the tools and experience necessary to survive the violence of the immortal existence.

Norm and Mike also speculate on why Damon Case really IS NOT a villain and is quite possibly one of the purest "players of The Game" and represents the strictest nature of the rules as we understand them and how they apply to the classic adage of Highlander, "There can be only ONE!"

 
So please join Norm and Mike for PART TWO of their deep dive examination into the world of THE IMMORTAL CIMOLI.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 72: CIMOLI’S CHOICE - The Immortal Cimoli Part One: The Retrospective

March 28, 2018
00:0000:00
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!

March 23, 2018

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!

Please leave us a review on iTunes! Search "Fandom Podcast Network" on iTunes and please leave a review for Blood of Kings. We would love to hear your feedback, and we will give you a shout out on a future episode of Blood of Kings.

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

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 70: Highlander The Raven / Episode Review Part 1: A Matter of Time

March 8, 2018
00:0000:00
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.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 69: Highlander The Promise - Methos Audio Book

February 28, 2018

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 69: Highlander The Promise - Methos Audio Book
 
For centuries, they battled the forces of light, murdering, pillaging and terrorizing their way across the globe. Then, through the betrayal of one of their number, the Four Horsemen rode no longer. But before their ultimate end, each was the target of a very personal vendetta striking to the core of the Horsemen's seemingly unbreakable bond. Now the secret history of The Four Horsemen,  Kronos, Silas, Caspian and Methos can finally be revealed...

In 2009 Big Finish Audio released the first season of four audio books on CD of their Highlander series, featuring Adrian Paul reprising his iconic character of Duncan MacLeod. In 2011 a second season of four audio books was released highlighting each of The Four Horsemen, featured in the Highlander TV show. And retuning to voice their iconic characters of The Four Horsemen, the actors who portrayed them, Valentine Pelka (Kronos), Richard Ridings (Silas), Marcus Testory (Caspian) and Peter Wingfield (Methos).

In this special episode of Blood of Kings, we feature a retrospective, and fondly look back at the fourth and final audio book of this series "The Promise" featuring Peter Wingfield as Methos. Written by James Moran, this story catches up with Methos after the events of The Four Horsemen, as he takes his own special revenge on an old immortal, by the name of Dilijan, that not only engineered the demise of the Four Horsemen, but also took the life of Methos one true love, Violetta. However, Methos is bound by "The Promise" he made to his dying Violetta, not to kill Dilijan. So the man once known as "Death", Methos plan of revenge is set in place which leads to a fate worse than death.

So please enjoy this special episode of Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast, Highlander The Promise, a Methos Audio Book.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 68: How Can There Ever Be Only One?

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 68: How Can There Ever Be Only One?
 
On January 28, 2018...one of our newer Blood of Kings Facebook Group members Cleaver Crawford asked a very interesting question to the community...
 
"I have one question, how can there ever be only one, when new immortals are made everyday when someone new dies?"
 
This started one of the fastest and most engaging threads that both Kevin and Norm have ever seen on the Blood of Kings community page and inspired some incredibly in-depth and well constructed conversations and theories; some of which go all the way back to the original "alt.tv.highlander" and "Rysher forums" days of yore!
 
This episode of Blood of Kings is 100% dedicated to this amazing thread and the passion that it stirred up amongst all of the Blood of Kings community of fans who prove to Kevin and Norm time and time again...that this is the absolute best Highlander fanbase out there today!!! Thank you Cleaver Crawford for such an amazing topic for discussion.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 67: Adrian Paul Interview & #SwordXP Atlanta Recap
 
Here we are at our final episode dedicated to Highlander ENDGAME. Truth be told, it was because of a very special event that inspired Kevin and Norm to choose ENDGAME as their first podcast theme for the beginning of Blood of Kings Season Three. Kevin attended the Atlanta Sword Experience because it was advertised that a very special choreography FROM Endgame was going to be taught...and "could" be one of THE most memorable sequences in the history of Highlander...the final duel between Duncan and Connor MacLeod.
 
Kevin also was able to sit down with the Highlander himself ADRIAN PAUL for a fantastic interview on Adrian's ENDGAME memories as he even shared a few details of what is coming up for the #SwordXP. Kevin also had a chance to interview #SwordXP Musketeer extraordinaire Priscilla Manriquez, read a special message with his #SwordXP partner David Edwards and share an incredible Highlander life changing moment with new friend of the show D.J. Stokes.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 66: Endgame Reactions "The Fans Have Spoken!"
 
This episode of Blood of Kings is dedicated to our amazing Blood of Kings Facebook FAMILY that has grown and evolved into something so incredibly special...
 
Welcome to the THIRD Endgame themed episode..."The Fans Have Spoken!"...recorded because the fan reaction to Blood of Kings Episodes 64 and 65 has been so voluminous and passionate! This reaction show started with a private message that Norm received from Highlander Heart's very own GRANT KEMPSTER, followed up almost immediately by Blood of Kings sister listener SHAN O' CONNOR; both of whom had so much to say and share about their ENDGAME reactions and experiences.
 
Kevin and Norm "thought" that they were finished with what was supposed to be a standard, two-part deep dive of Highlander: ENDGAME. But the Blood of Kings fans...their passion could not be contained!!! So much so...that Norm decided to open up a REACTIONS THREAD on the official Blood of Kings Facebook page. The results were astounding and had to be recorded for a podcast!
 
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.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
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!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
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 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
 
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.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast

Kingmaker #7 Special, The Gathering Recap w/ Carmel Macpherson & John Mosby

Welcome Highlander Fans to a very special Kingmakers Episode on Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast - here on the Fandom Podcast Network.

Earlier this fall, on the weekend of October 20th - 22nd, something extremely special and magical took place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. HIGHLANDER fans from all over the world descended upon that hotel to take part in the 10th Highlander Worldwide convention called THE GATHERING, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the TV Series. From veterans, to newbies, the love and passion for the Highlander franchise was welcoming and infectious as old friendships were rekindled, new friendships blossomed and all were united under the banner of Highlander Worldwide.

Your Blood of Kings hosts Kevin & Norman welcomes the two people that were responsible for pulling off such an amazing event. Our special guests on the show are here to update this exciting news. We would like to welcome back:

 

• Carmel Macpherson, President of Highlander Worldwide and lead organizer of "The Gathering" A Highlander Convention"

 

• John Mosby: Author of "Fearful Symmetry, The Essential Guide To All Things Highlander" 

 

As Kevin and Norman reflect on THE GATHERING with Carmel and John, and what it meant to the fans of Highlander. We cover many topics looking back on this very memorable event such as, the most challenging aspect of producing the convention, what planning details materialized for them easily, what didn't come to fruition no matter how hard they tried, What surprised them most about the convention, and what was the most consistent piece of feedback they received from the convention.

 

Carmel also gives us an update on the Go Fund Me Campaign for The Gathering Convention DVD production, including when the DVD will be ready for release. And Carmel also discusses the future for Highlander Worldwide and the website future updates.

 

Kevin and Norman save the big question for last for both John and Carmel...where do we go from here? What is next on the HLWW horizon and are they looking ahead to a potential HIGHLANDER 30th Anniversary convention??

 

Both Kevin and Norman wanted to personally thank both Carmel and John for all of their very hard work and effort they put into the recent Highlander Worldwide TV Show 25th Anniversary Convention. We are proud to welcome them back to Blood of Kings!

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.

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!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 50: Norm’s BRAW Trip to SCOTLAND!

September 5, 2017
00:0000:00
Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast
Episode 50: Norm’s BRAW Trip to SCOTLAND!
 
Kevin and Norm have reached EPISODE 50! FIFTY!! FIVE-OH!!! And...they have decided to celebrate with a SUPER-DUPER-SIZED feature interview covering Blood of Kings co-host Norman C. Lao’s BRAW trip to Scotland. Kevin began this trend…traveling to the Highlands and visiting so many special shooting locations in Scotland and we covered his trips in detail on Blood of Kings Episodes 7 and 8.
 
Now it is Norman’s turn to recount his (and Carol’s) tales of touring the magical country of Scotland. In his own personal words Norm summarized his feelings thusly, “This was the TRIP OF A LIFETIME! I am so humbled and grateful that I had the opportunity to visit Scotland and especially many of the places that are dear to my heart. This has been such a blessing and a gift and I owe so much of this trip to my lovely Carol who planned and organized a TON in preparation for this trip. The people are amazing, the food is incredible, the WHISKY of course is beyond amazing and plentiful...
 
...but it's the HISTORY that is just beyond words. This country has been wracked with war and strife and conflict and so much of that amidst all this natural beauty and wilderness is just an irony that only can be felt when you close your eyes and reach out with your senses...haunting...and beautiful at the same time. Thank you Scotland for sharing your soul with me. I look forward to seeing you again soon.”

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
 
And don’t forget to enter our NEW “iTUNES REVIEW” contest, where YOU can enter your chance to WIN your very own Blood of Kings episode FAN PICK! You can get all the details as you listen to the show.

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!!!

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

July 18, 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.
 
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.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 41: SEE IT OR SKIP IT Part 1: Highlander the Series Season 1

June 7, 2017
00:0000:00

This is PART ONE of our review and we cover the SEACOUVER first half of the season from The Gathering to Band of Brothers; the episode that changed everything in Highlander Season One.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 40: Happy ONE-YEAR Anniversary Blood of Kings!

May 29, 2017
00:0000:00
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BLOOD OF KINGS! Today marks the ONE-YEAR anniversary for Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast on the Fandom Podcast network.
 
As Kevin and Norm look back on their humble beginnings, one scene in Highlander came to mind haha…
 
“How did this happen for God’s Sake?” - Connor MacLeod
“Why does the sun come up...hmm...or are the stars just pinholes on the curtain of night? Who knows?” - Juan Sanchez Villa Lobos Ramirez
 
Kevin and Norm already had a bit of a Highlander background before starting the Blood of Kings podcast in earnest; easing into it with previous shows like the 5 Fandom Flashbacks and 1 Special Movie Commentary.

39 Podcast Episodes and 3 Kingmaker Specials later…along with several liters of whiskey, tons of melted cheese, disco fries, trading card packs and hundreds and hundreds of dollars worth of books, dvds, blu rays, swords, t-shirts, themed vacations, sword fighting and bullwhip classes - Kevin and Norm have FINALLY scratched the surface of where they want to take Blood of Kings and guess what? You…our fans and supporters…are invited along for the ride!

This week on Blood of Kings, co-hosts Kevin and Norm are joined with Watcher agents in training Mike Sellers and FPNet Founder Kyle Wagner, to discuss Blood of Kings "The One-Year Anniversary Show.“ This entire year-long journey started with a very fortuitous phone call last 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! And the rest is Watchers Chronicle History!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast An Evening At Joe’s: Norm’s RANCHO INDALO FLASHBACK!

May 25, 2017
00:0000:00
Hello Blood of Kings fans! Please enjoy a very informal discussion here at the place where everyone knows JOE’s name! Kevin and I finally had the opportunity to kick back here at Joe’s, ordered some snacks and drinks and FINALLY discussed my weekend at RANCHO INDALO which happened last November 18th-20th, 2016.

Anthony and Mary DeLongis’ Rancho Indalo IS a FULL ON training facility, set in Canyon Country right outside of Santa Clarita, CA (north of Los Angeles). They have 4 gorgeous horses at the ranch, for various riding programs and excursions. Anthony is fully equipped to train and teach all styles of martial arts with a variety of weaponry at his disposal. He is an extraordinary teacher and was able to communicate very quickly and efficiently with me, so that we could maximize the most out of our training sessions. Also...Mary DeLongis is the most AMAZING CHEF and her cooking is worth a trip to the ranch! Lastly, being able to meet Forged In Fire's DAVE BAKER who lives nearby was just the icing on the cake!

After listening to this show, I hope that I have inspired many of you to visit Rancho Indalo. It has made such a profound impact on me, not just because I am a fan of Anthony's work, but because it is such a lovely place to visit, run by two amazing people who have an incredibly deep and infectious passion for what they do. If you have the means and the desire and a WILLINGNESS TO LEARN (very important), seriously consider visiting Rancho Indalo to train and spend time with these two fabulous people. I truly look forward to visiting again.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 39: BoK Fan Choice: SHADOWS Part 2: The Commentary

May 17, 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 across Highlander fandom.

Blood of Kings fan Jill Berticus inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one of her favorite episodes: Season 3’s SHADOWS and this Blood of Kings podcast continues Kevin's and Norm's deep dive study with an in-depth commentary as the episode unfolds.

 
SHADOWS also directly addresses one of the key points in Highlander the Series: Can Immortals find happiness in a normal life whilst trying to survive within “The Game” and can Duncan and Anne move past being able to TRUST in each other?
 
Thank you everyone for participating on the Blood of Kings Facebook page.  Any comments, questions, suggestions or critiques are welcome. 

And don’t forget about our #highlander101 contest and how you can enter your chance to win John Mosby’s FEARFUL SYMMETRY. Details how are…well, you will just have to listen to the show :)
