Still Immortal After All These Years

What makes one TV show last forever while others, perhaps more successful initially, fade out of memory?

We're always trying to catch lightning in a bottle. Highlander caught it. Even while were were making the show, we knew. Because of the avid fandom and their heartfelt feedback, we knew.

But I couldn't have predicted that more than 10 years after we went off the air, we would all still have it so much in our hearts.

As I mentioned a while back, a new short episode of "Highlander: The Series," featuring the original cast in their roles as Methos, Amanda and Joe, and written by our guiding light David Abramowitz, is now available. And you can see the whole thing for free on hulu.

I feel lucky to have the chance to visit with these old friends again.
