Observe. Record. Never Interfere. This is the oath of The Watchers; a secret society that was introduced to Highlander the Series at the very end of Season one. However, who were these people and how did their organization manage to survive for over 4,000 years? Most importantly, what changed in their ranks that made one of their most influential leaders, James Horton, turn their trust to ashes as he perverted their organization for all time?In this first part of Who Are The Watchers, your podcasting Kingmakers Kevin Reitzel and Norman C. Lao take a look at the origin of The Watchers and delve deeply into this clandestine organization; who are they, why they exist, what drives them to continue and are all of their intentions noble for posterity? Kevin and Norm also review several key episodes that shed a great deal of truth and understanding about The Watchers and WHY they watch. Please join us here on Blood of Kings for an exciting and immersive look at what Norm believes was one of the greatest additions to Highlander and one that changed the future (and technically the past…)of the Highlander mythology for the better.
