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

May 29, 2017

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!

In this fourth episode of Good Evening: An Alfred Hitchcock Podcast, your hosts take a look at Hitchcock's early efforts as a co-director on films that have been lost to time. 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."

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.

May 17, 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. 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?

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.
