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.

Good Evening: An Alfred Hitchcock Podcast Episode 5.5 – Hitchcock and Truffaut Part 1

July 17, 2017
00:0000:00

 

In the fall of 1962, whilst The Birds was in post-production, François Truffaut carried out extensive interviews with Alfred Hitchcock at his offices at Universal Studios. The interviews were recorded to audio tape and the content eventually edited down into Truffaut's Hitchcock book.

Although Truffaut could speak a little English, he hired Helen Scott (of the French Film Office in New York) to act as the translator for the interviews.

Truffaut had intended to quickly publish the book of the interviews, but the first edition wasn't published until several years later (1966 in France and 1967 in America). To bring the book up-to-date, Truffaut conducted further interviews to discuss Marnie and Torn Curtain.

In 1984, Patricia Hitchcock donated a set of the interview tapes to the Margaret Herrick Library, where they are now part of the Hitchcock Collection. Although Truffaut claimed that the recordings lasted 50 hours, the surviving tapes — which cover the 1962 interviews — last for less than 26 hours.

Research by Janet Bergstrom has made clear the fact that the book often does not contain a verbatim transcript of Hitchcock's responses to Truffaut's questions.

The audio tapes of the interviews have not been released commercially. However, portions of the tapes were used for a French radio broadcast by the station "France Culture".

Nearly 12 hours of the interviews were broadcast on French radio as a 25 part series. Each episode runs for just over 25 minutes.

Transcriptions are available for some of the parts.

Childhood through to his early years in the film industry.

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 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!

We talk about his work on "Always Tell Your Wife," "Woman to Woman," "The White Shadow," "The Passionate Adventure," "The Prude's Fall," and "The Blackguard." Tom also talks about some of the reasons that films of that era were lost or destroyed, and some of the interesting places that films thought lost were later found.

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 38: BoK Fan Choice: SHADOWS Part 1: A Retrospective

May 10, 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, Jill Berticus, inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one of Jill’s favorite episodes: Season 3’s SHADOWS.
 
After reviewing this episode, Kevin and Norm can easily see why Jill Berticus chose this as one of her favorites. This episode combines a great many aspects of what makes for a quality Highlander episode; especially the MORAL ambiguity haunting Duncan MacLeod and the guilt that John Garrick is able to tap into to drive Duncan towards the edge of his own sanity.
 
This episode also sheds a very pointed light on whether or not Immortals can indeed find happiness in a normal life whilst trying to survive within “The Game” as Duncan and Dr. Anne Lindsey’s blossoming relationship is put to the ultimate test: TRUST in each other.
 
Thank you everyone for participating on the Blood of Kings Facebook page.  Any comments, questions, suggestions or critiques are welcome.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 35: Deckbuilding 101 with the Highlander Collectible Card Game

April 20, 2017
00:0000:00
Time to dust off all those stacks of Highlander collectible cards you have been holding onto for all these years !!! On this episode of Blood of Kings, Norm and special guest host Mike “The Immortal Cimoli” Sellers will be discussing both the FIRST and SECOND EDITION of the Highlander CCG and how to build a playable deck as we start tuning up for convention and competition season on the road to where all gaming journeys meet: Gen Con 50! SPECIAL THANKS to Steven Rice for joining us on this episode!!! Steven is a long time Highlander CCG, developer, player, veteran and contributor and currently helming the Blood of Kings CCG Facebook page.

The last time we discussed the Collectible Card Game was FIRST on Part Four of the Highlander Fandom Flashback, and THEN on the TWO PART Episode on Blood of Kings called "It's All in the Cards" - Blood of Kings Episode 5 and 6. Those episodes discussed a lot of the general history and basic strategy of the card game but we really want to get into some more advanced theories on this episode and that leads us to building a proper and competitive Highlander CCG Deck.

We hope you enjoy this episode and if you would like to share your Highlander CCG experiences with us, please feel free to visit the Blood of Kings CCG Fandom page on Facebook and join the conversation. Who knows…maybe you can share a few amazing strategies with us as well.

Couch Potato Theater: Tron Legacy Commentary

April 20, 2017
00:0000:00

Welcome to the latest episode of Couch Potato Theater as we close out are look back on Disney's Tron Franchise.  In 2010 almost 30 years after the orginal Tron came out the sequal finally came in the form of Tron Legacy, perhaps one of the most visually stunning movies of all time.  However even a full all out marketing blitz by Disney and an amazing soundtrack by Daft Punk could get Tron Legacy in the black, much like the original Tron film it has a very strong cult following but numbers did not translate when it came to the box office.  Join Kyle Wagner and Kevin Reitzel as they return to the grid to bring you a commentary of Tron: Legacy and why both of them feel it might be a superior film to the original Tron.  Grab your popcorn hop on the couch and try not to get Derezzed!  End of Line. 

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 34: KURGAN RISING…A Big Finish Audiobook Review

April 14, 2017
00:0000:00
“Everyone has a Bogeyman…”
 
Norman & Kevin are proud to introduce this episode of Blood of Kings as they highlight ANOTHER of the Highlander BIG FINISH Audio books  - KURGAN RISING - written by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright, and produced and distributed by Big Finish Audio. Adrian Paul returns to his iconic role from the Highlander TV Series as Duncan McLeod. This story takes place 5 years after the events of Highlander: Endgame and in very many ways, re-opens old wounds as Duncan is unwillingly maneuvered into doing the ONE thing that Immortals are NEVER to do: Fight on Holy Ground.
 
Along with a tour de force performance by veteran voice actor Toby Longworth, KURGAN RISING is an incredibly complex story, weaving in and out of canonized lore, and exploring…or exploiting…many of Highlander’s most signature elements - most notably the consequences of breaking tradition.

Very special thanks to Blood of Kings fan Daniel Jacob Horine for his suggestion that Kevin and Norm should take a closer look at this particular story and how it applies to challenging the lore and canon of Highlander.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 33: Surviving The Game: a.k.a Highlander 101

April 3, 2017
00:0000:00
Norm was recently asked a very interesting question from a friend and listener of Blood of Kings, “I really like listening to your show…but I just don’t get all of the CONCEPTS of Highlander. I don’t get what it’s all about sometimes…”

From it’s very humble cult beginnings in 1986 with the signature Christopher Lambert film, to celebrating Highlander’s 31st birthday this past March 7th - and now looking forward towards celebrating the 25th anniversary of the 25th anniversary of Highlander: The Television Series in October in Los Angeles…HIGHLANDER is still going strong and there is an amazing resurgence in the fandom. BUT, there is a lot of LORE that has been developed for this franchise these past 30 years. How does one keep track of it all? Well...let's start with the basics or "HIGHLANDER 101."

As Blood of Kings continues to grow in fans and followers, Kevin and I felt it was a good idea to refresh all of our listeners, especially those NEW to the Highlander franchise - to the basic framework and architecture. Many of us are long time veterans of the lore, stretching all the way back to 1986. BUT some of us are NEW to the game and we wanted to take this opportunity to review what you need to know to fully understand Highlander.

March 29, 2017
00:0000:00

Greetings Program!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 32: Listener’s Choice: Mortal Sins Part 2: The Commentary

March 27, 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. Fan interaction is incredibly important to promoting new discussions in all aspects of the Highlander universe. One fan in particular, Vince Stefanelli, inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one off Vincent’s favorite episodes: Season 3’s Mortal Sins.

This episode of Blood of Kings continues Kevin and Norm's deep dive study on Mortal Sins with an in-depth commentary and insight in real-time as the episode unfolds. Throughout the commentary of this episode, Kevin and Norm can easily see why Vince Stefanelli chose this as one of his favorites.

This episode combines a great many aspects of what makes for a quality Highlander episode; especially the MORAL question and dilemma plaguing and haunting Father Bernard.

This episode also sheds a very pointed light on whether or not Immortals can indeed find happiness in a normal life whilst fighting for their own survival within “The Game”.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast KINGMAKERS Episode 3: John Mosby and Carmel Macpherson

In early December 2016, a very powerful teaser image was released to the Highlander fan public on Facebook; multiple copies of the word “Gather” in a circular “ring”. Needless to say, the Highlander community’s interest was instantly piqued! Shortly after…the HLWW or Highlander WorldWide logo appeared in the center of that “ring” of “Gather” - or GATHERING - and accompanied by the phrase “Twenty-Five Years Can Seem Like A Lifetime” - the teaser began to make sense.

Finally, the plans of the 25th Anniversary Highlander Convention were announced and a surge of Quickening level energy cascaded throughout the fanbase and across all of social media. Details were somewhat limited due to all of the hard work that was being invested behind the scenes.

On this very special episode of KINGMAKERS on Blood of Kings, we are so incredibly honored and privileged to have on both John Mosby, author of FEARFUL SYMMETRY: The Essential Guide to All Things Highlander and Carmel Macpherson, PRESIDENT of Highlander Worldwide to discuss the most current developments for the Highlander 25th Anniversary Convention! Joined by your FPN co-hosts, Kevin, Kyle and Norm, John and Carmel discuss how this convention started to take shape, what has been set in the planning stages, many of the “hopes” for the convention and discuss the “WHY NOW?” about producing this con on the 25th anniversary of the television series.

PLEASE NOTE: As of the release date of this podcast - March 18th, 2017 - only ADRIAN Paul, ELIZABETH Gracen, DAVID Abramowitz, JIM Byrnes and F BRAUN McAsh have been confirmed. During the course of the show, many wishlist names are mentioned but only THESE five celebrities have been CONFIRMED. More details will come as the planning stages continue. John and Carmel are hard at work behind the scenes trying to make sure the guest list is robust and an incredible opportunity for all of the fans.

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 31: Listener’s Choice: Mortal Sins Part 1: A Retrospective

March 15, 2017

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. Fan interaction is incredibly important to promoting new discussions in all aspects of the Highlander universe. One fan in particular, Vince Stefanelli, inspired Kevin and Norm to take a deeper look into one off Vincent’s favorite episodes: Season 3’s Mortal Sins.

After reviewing this episode, Kevin and Norm can easily see why Vince Stefanelli chose this as one of his favorites. This episode combines a great many aspects of what makes for a quality Highlander episode; especially the MORAL question and dilemma plaguing and haunting Father Bernard.

This episode also sheds a very pointed light on whether or not Immortals can indeed find happiness in a normal life whilst fighting for their own survival within “The Game”.

Please join Kevin and Norm as they dive deeply into Mortal Sins, and as they also discuss a milestone in the Blood of Kings community, announce The Raven contest winner and continue the academic pursuit of whether or not Nakano was a true Sorcerer or was he just an “illusionist”. Enjoy!
