Episode 64: Highlander ENDGAME: The Retrospective
 
In September of 2000, Highlander ENDGAME was released to world-wide audiences as the fourth movie of the cult classic Highlander franchise. This film was the very first appearance of Adrian Paul as Duncan MacLeod on the BIG screen, after enjoying a wonderful and successful 6 season run on the critically acclaimed television series of this same franchise. ENDGAME also marked the reunion of both Duncan AND Connor MacLeod who were last seen together on the television series premiere episode THE GATHERING, as Christopher Lambert reprised his iconic role of Connor MacLeod; the character that launched this franchise nearly 32 years ago in 1986.

However, not all went according to the general Highlander fandom's expectations. All of the pieces were in place for this film to succeed where the sequels Highlander 2: The Quickening (and its subsequent versions) and Highlander 3: The Final Dimension stumbled and many times failed to extend the legacy of what the first film achieved, cementing the epitaph "There Can Be Only One...FILM!". With several mis-fires in the theatrical version, Highlander ENDGAME, could have changed the paradigm for the future. However, fan expectation for this film in particular was incredibly high and the internet was becoming a viable tool to share much of the fans concerns...especially where the "rules of the game" - a staple element of the Highlander universe - were forcibly changed to usher in a "whole new ball game" as one of the characters stated.
