Yeah, Highlander is one of the few properties that is better off rebooted than continued. I mean the first movie makes it very clear that at the end, Conner was the *last* immortal standing and that he wasn't even immortal anymore.
Don't remember much about the anime, but I recall thinking it was good...but not much else. So by definition I suppose I'd have to call that one pretty inoffensive and forgettable.
I'm almost afraid to ask, but what was the TV series's excuse for there being what looked like hundreds of the buggers that somehow missed the gathering?
