Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast: Episode 25: REBORN as The Raven!

January 23, 2017
00:0000:00
On this episode of Blood of Kings, Kevin and Norm continue their "Search for the Raven" with an in-depth look at REBORN - the PILOT episode of Highlander: The Raven with Elizabeth Gracen taking center stage as AMANDA; our favorite cat-burglar from Highlander: The Series.
 
With Adrian Paul moving onto different stages of his career, and the future of the Highlander property in flux, the producers tested several actresses throughout the sixth and FINAL season of Highlander: The Series and ultimately decided that Elizabeth Gracen's AMANDA was THE one to carry on the Highlander television tradition  into the future. Executive Producer Bill Panzer said, "The existing (and popular) character of Amanda felt like a strong choice with many benefits. Television being television, we did look around, but Amanda was always the dream choice."
 
Join us as we take a closer look at the launch of a completely new era of Highlander and the challenges of extending a very much and deeply beloved franchise. Was Highlander REBORN with "The Raven"? That is something we hope you will try and help us discover along the way as you listen to this episode. ENJOY!

Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 24: Season Six a.k.a The Raven Auditions!

Happy New Year Blood of Kings fans!!! On our first episode for 2017, your co-hosts Kevin and Norm delve deeply into the SIXTH and FINAL season of Highlander: The Series. Due to many extreme circumstances, especially the limitations of Adrian Paul’s availability, Season Six became the “soft auditions” for the eventual spin-off series Highlander: The Raven.

Season Six began production in Paris in the summer of 1997 and Panzer-Davis Productions had been approached by partners and foreign investors about doing a possible spin-off series - which would center on a FEMALE immortal. Several "spec" scripts for the new series were filmed as episodes to fill out the season. Funding was cut and only thirteen episodes were filmed, of which TWO did not feature Adrian at all. The writing was on the wall for Highlander: The Series and a choice had to be made.

Join us as we take a look at the FIVE episodes and the WOMEN who helped shape the destiny of the spinoff series as we begin PART ONE of our journey in the Search for the Raven…

This week on Blood of Kings, co-hosts Kevin "The RaiderNerd" Reitzel and Norman "Centauri" Lao are joined with Watcher agent in training Mike Sellers - to discuss Blood of Kings "The Year in Review!" 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!

 Over 30 episodes later - starting with the FPN Highlander 30th Anniversary Commentary and the FANDOM FLASHBACK 5 part series, the Blood of Kings team of Kevin, Norm and Mike Sellers 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 2016 was for Blood of Kings...2017 is going to be even better!
