Blood of Kings: A Highlander Podcast Episode 19: The Legacy of Highlander 2 a.k.a Does Time Heal All Wounds?
Highlander 2: The Quickening is hailed by many-and especially in the Highlander Fan Community - as being the WORST sequal (and possibly one of the worst movies) OF ALL TIME!!!! With three simple words = "The Planet Zeist" - Highlander 2 instantly alienated (no pun intended) an entire fan base and created one of the most profound schisms in the Highlander Fan community not seen before or since.
When Kevin and Norm first created Blood of Kings, one of their very first ideas was to present a POSITIVE case FOR Highlander 2 and to challenge Highlander Fans to look at H2 in a different light, and enjoy it from a different perspective; hopin that the distance and separation of time has eased much of the vitriol that has been levied at Hilander 2 since 1991.
To be fair and specific, in THIS episode of BoK, Kevin and Norm are citing the Special Edition as the ULTIMATE CUT of Highlander 2 and the version that is worth of summary judgement by the fan community.
