1.1)  Quick Summary

"From the Dawn of time We came; moving silently down through the
centuries, living many secret lives, struggling to reach the time of
the Gathering; when the few who remain will battle to the last.  No
one has ever known we were among you ...until now."

Connor MacLeod was born in 1518AD.  18 years later in 1536AD, he is
killed in battle by The Kurgan, but Connor "recovers."  Because of
this, his clansmen kick him out of the village, saying that he has
made a pact with the devil.  In 1541AD, Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos
Ramirez (Chief Metallurgist to King Charles the Fifth) tells him that
he is immortal.  Ramirez tells him that he is a member of a group of
people who are Immortal and are involved in The Game.  Over the
centuries, they will all be drawn toward a far-away city where they
will chop off each other's heads until there is only one left.  This
Immortal will win The Prize.  Connor ends up in NYC in 1985, where he
and The Kurgan end up being the last two.  In a grand climactic scene,
with lots of water, pyrotechnics and broken glass, Connor wins.

1.2) What are the differences between the European release and the
    American release?

1.3) Is there a soundtrack available for HIGHLANDER?

Despite the reference in the credits at the end of the movie, there
never was an 'official' soundtrack released for HIGHLANDER. There are
reports of an orchestral version floating around and there were
promos given out when the movie was first released.  But an official
soundtrack INCLUDING the Queen songs was never released. Most of the
Queen songs appeared on their album 'A Kind of Magic' (1986;
re-released 1991) which is currently available.

However, negotiations are currently in progress (Oct. 93) between the
relevant parties (Davis/Panzer Productions, Queen, and the interested
record company) to finally release an official soundtrack.

1.4) Was HIGHLANDER based on a book or a story or something?

No, HIGHLANDER originated as a screenplay that Gregory Widen wrote
for a screen-writing course that he took at UCLA.

1.5) What was the drink that Connor ordered in the bar after following
    Brenda there?

Glenmorangie. a fine Scotch malt whiskey.

1.6) Where in Scotland is Connor from?

He was born in 1518 in the village of Glenfinnan (which really
exists), on the shores of Loch Shiel. The battle was in 1536 and it
was between the Macleods and the Frasers. The castle in the movie is
Eilean Donan castle which is located in Wester Ross in the Scottish
Highlands on a small rocky island near the Ilse of Skye.

1.7) What is Ramirez' full name?

Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez and he states that he is the Chief
Metallurgist to Charles V of Spain.  When he meets Connor in 1541 he
is 2,437 year old. He says that he is Egyptian so Ramirez is probably
just his latest name. His sword was made in 593 B.C. by Masamune and
his last wife was Shakiko, daughter of Masamune.

1.8) How many Immortals were in the movie?

Five, but a sixth was mentioned. The five were Connor Macleod,
Ramirez, the Kurgan (Victor Kruger), Iman Fasil, Sunda Kastagir. The
sixth was "Vaselech(sp?), a Polish national" who was killed in New
Jersey two nights before the swordfight with Fasil in the Madison
Square Garden parking garage. Of this list only Ramirez dies before
the Gathering.

1.10) Does the book 'A Metallurgical History of Ancient Sword Making'
actually exist?

No. There are numerous librarians on the HIGHLA-L mailing list who
have searched all of the databases for it with no luck.

1.11) What year did the duel between Connor and Bassett occur?

1783 and the duel was held on Boston Common. The cause of the duel?
Connor had called Bassett's wife a 'bloated wart hog'. The bottle of
brandy that Connor brought to Brenda's apartment was bottled in 1783.
"Brandy, bottled in 1783. 1783 was a very good year. Mozart wrote his
Great Mass. The Montgolfier brothers went up in their first balloon.
(hah!) And England recognized the Independence of the United States."

1.12) Did the Kurgans, as a people, really exist?

Yes. According to the movie they were 'an ancient people from the
steppes of Russia. For amusement, they'd toss children in pits with
hungry dogs to fight for meat.' According to research, the Kurgans, a
semi-nomadic pastoralist culture from Russin steppes to Danubian
Europe c. 3500 BC. Around 2300 BC the Kurgans arrived in the Aegean
and Adriatic regions. They buried their dead in deep shafts and were
known as horse breeders. In addition, the term 'kurgan' is usually
used to refer to ancient stone-age burial mounds found in Russia.
Also 'Kurgan' is a city of over 200,000 in southwestern Siberia.

1.13) Why was Fasil's sword so special? Why was Ramirez'/Connor's
katana so special?

Fasil's sword was a rare Toledo Salamanca supposedly worth over a
million dollars. The katana was made in 593 BC. using a technique
that supposedly wasn't developed until the Middle Ages. Brenda calls
it 'the Samurai' with a tone of reverence and awe.

1.14) What other names has Connor used?

From the title search that Brenda's friend did on Connor's house,
from latest to earliest, Russell Nash, Rupert Wellingford,
Alfred Nicholson, Jaques Lefeburt, Adrian Montegue.

1.15)  Are there any Highlander-related books available?

None that anyone has been able to acquire. There was a book published
in England that nobody has managed to acquire a copy of yet. A copy
was found in the non-lending section of the University of California
at Riverside. 'The Highlander' by Gary Douglas (1986), Severn House,
London PR6054.082

1.16) Miscellaneous Trivia

Christopher Lambert spent time with a dialog coach, developing an
accent which sounded unspecifically foreign.

In the European version, MacLeod says "It's a kind of magic", which
is the name of the Queen album which contains songs from the film.

The Vietnam vet, Matunas, who tries to machine-gun Kurgan has the
Queen song _Hammer to Fall_ playing in his car.

The Queen version of "New York, New York" was never released
separately on any Queen album.

*2-0) The 'Rules' of the Game*

2.1) What is the Quickening?

 The official definition from the producers is "An Immortal can only
 be killed by beheading. When an Immortal is killed, the Immortal who
 killed him receives his power and his essence through a mystical
 process known as "The Quickening." The power of the Quickening is the
 equivalent to a major electrical storm hitting -- windows explode,
 lights short circuit, it is almost as if the victorious Immortal is
 in the center of a lightning storm."

2.2) Holy Ground

 Ramirez tells Connor "You are only safe on holy ground. No one will
 violate this. It's tradition." Their Code will not allow them to
 fight in sacred locations. The consensus of all the discussions is
 that Holy Ground is any place held sacred by any religion.

2.3) The Gathering

 Ramirez told Connor "You must learn to conceal your special gift,
 and harness your power (pause) until the time of the Gathering...
 When only a few of us are left, we will feel an irresistable pull
 towards a far away land, to fight for the Prize...  We must fight
 until only one remains..." During the movie, we assume that the
 Gathering lasted only a few weeks, at most a few months. But, in the
 TV series premiere, we are told that the Gathering has begun and, in
 the second season premiere, we are told that Connor killed the Kurgan
 eight years ago.  So presumably the Gathering will last several years,
 or at least as long as the TV series :-).

2.4) Physiology

 An Immortal appear to be 'killed' by anything that will kill a mortal.
 But they regenerate and recover. The more extensive the injury, the
 longer it takes to regenerate. Apparently facial and neck scars
 last but scars to the body disappear.  We'll find out in the 2nd
 season episode 'Unholy Alliance' whether an Immortal can regenerate
 a lost limb. (I'm still wondering whether there is such a thing as a
 balding Immortal :-) - Debbie Douglass).

 Immortals are sterile from birth. An Immortal carries the "seed" of
 his Immortality within him in life. If he is "killed," he becomes
 Immortal and never grows any older.

 They can sense each other's presence. The producers call it "The Buzz."

2.5) Why do Immortals usually use swords?

 A sword is the best way to ensure that when an Immortal takes the
 head of another he will be close enough to receive the Quickening.

*3.0) _Highlander: The Series_*

 In other times they bore other names:
         The Old Ones, The Elvan Lords, Druids,
         Angels, Demons, Gods...

 In our time they are called the Immortals.
         They are still with us.

                          ...all the legends are true.
                     (From the HIGHLANDER TV series writers' bible)

3.1) Introduction

 Heads up, movie fans. According to the producers, the TV series
 is in an alternate universe/timeline from the movies but the two share
 *some* characters, events, and rules. This means that, for the TV
 series, Connor did not win the Prize in 1985 when he killed the
 Kurgan. The Gathering has just begun and apparently it is a long
 process. There are still plenty of Immortals left when the TV series
 opens in 1992. This also means that Adrian Paul will not be in the
 third Highlander movie.

 The Premise:
 Duncan Macleod is a younger clansman of Connor Macleod and he also is
 an Immortal. The series opened with Slan Quince, an evil Immortal
 hunting down Duncan to take his head. Connor has tracked Quince to
 Duncan's since he thought Duncan might need help. Duncan has tried to
 stay out of the Game for many years. Duncan lives runs an antique shop
  with his live-in lover of 12 years, Tessa Noel. Richie Ryan is a
 young punk thief who is trying to rob the antique shop in the middle
 of the night when all of a sudden all these Immortals show up
 brandishing deadly looking swords.

 In the beginning of the second season, Tessa is killed in a random
 act of senseless violence. Her death inspires him to become
 more involved in mortal affairs. He feels he can no longer ignore the
 sorry state of the world, but must try to do something to improve it.

 Richie, killed in the same shooting as Tessa, becomes Immortal. Once
 trained by Mac, he will go off on his own, becoming a recurring

 MacLeod sells the antique store and moves into an industrial loft over
 a Dojo. The loft is a spare, masculine space; the Dojo below is a
 place where serious martial artists and warriors train, not a place
 for aerobics classes.

 CHARLIE DESALVO, runs the Dojo. Charlie's mother was black, and
 his father is an Italian. He is also an ex-Navy SEAL.

 JOE DAWSON, middle-aged, is first introduced as an unassuming bookshop
 owner. We have learned that he is involved with an age-old secret
 organization known as THE WATCHERS. The Watchers have observed and
 recorded the chronicles of the Immortals for countless generations.
 Dawson knows all about MacLeod -- in fact, he is one of his greatest
 admirers. After an initial confrontation, the two become allies,
 and Dawson will occasionally put his formidable intelligence operation
 at Mac's disposal.  Meanwhile, Dawson must confront the renegades
 within his own organization who believe that the only good Immortal is
 a dead Immortal. These RENEGADE WATCHERS will periodically come after
 MacLeod's head.

 lives of the Immortals, passing their archives down from
 generation to generation. Unbeknownst to Dawson, his brother-in-

 sensitive Gregor he knew has been replaced by a hardened cynic.
 Another photograph in the exhibit, taken of MacLeod 50 years ago,
 triggers a flashback of his meeting young photographer LINDA
 PLAGER. Then, the now-73-year-old Linda recognizes Duncan as her
 old mentor and lover, convincing her nurse that she's thoroughly
 senile -- after all, Duncan MacLeod would be an old man by now,
 wouldn't he? Learning that Linda is dying, MacLeod longs to tell
 her the truth, but isn't sure how. Meanwhile, Greg seduces
 Richie into his destructive lifestyle -- fascinated by the rush
 of fear that accompanies near death, he coaxes Richie into a
 dangerous motorcycle stunt. After a confrontation with MacLeod,
 Greg snaps -- frustrated by his inability to feel any real
 emotion because of the insulation from death his Immortality
 gives him, he attacks Richie, then Linda, then fights MacLeod on
 the roof of the hospital. Only when MacLeod's sword is inches
 from his neck does Greg break down and face the truth that he
 doesn't want to die.

 The Zone is a burned-out urban wasteland, abandoned by the
 police, who figure it's easier to just 'let the animals kill each
 other.' Now the Zone is being taken over by CANAAN, a
 charismatic leader who urges his followers to take the material
 possessions that have been denied to them. JOE DAWSON comes to
 MacLeod for help -- one of his men, who was observing Canaan, has
 been killed. Charlie accompanies MacLeod down to his old
 neighborhood in the Zone and introduces him to ASIA, a nurse at
 the local clinic, one of few people who haven't given up on the
 neighborhood. After MacLeod learns that Dawson was mistaken, and-
 Canaan is not an Immortal, Dawson is ready to drop it. But
 MacLeod has seen the misery in the Zone, and is determined to
 break Canaan's hold. He convinces Asia that it's time to stand

 neighborhood residents who want to take back their streets. But

 to his apparent death. Canaan busts up the neighborhood meeting,
 but when MacLeod arrives and defeats Canaan hand to hand, the

 Duncan thinks the guys might be Watchers, but in fact they are FBI
 Agents.  Amanda is in possession of some plates for counterfeit
 money, stolen in Germany before WWII. She's looking for an
 engraver to change the dates, figuring since she's sworn to give up
 stealing money, she'll have to print some up. PALANCE, one of the
 FBI Agents, sets MacLeod and Amanda up to take the fall for his
 partner's murder, and demands that they turn the plates over. Mac
 and Amanda are forced to "die" on videotape to catch Palance.
  -Historical flaw: the United States switched over from Silver
   Certificates in the 1960's, thus engraving plates made during WWII

3.2) Biographies

3.2.1) Adrian Paul (Duncan Macleod)

 A cross between Errol Flynn and Douglas Fairbanks, Adrian Paul was
 born (May 29, 1959) and raised in London. His family was not very
 drama-oriented and they didn't exactly know how to react when Adrian
 informed them that he wanted to become an actor. He studied
 Shakespeare and performed in school plays, but his focus was always on
 sports. He played semi-pro soccer and then travelled around Europe to
 model. In Europe, he danced and choreographed for six years and then
 moved to Los Angeles to dance and seek out acting roles.

 His first acting experience was on the ABC Television series "The
 Colbys." Adrian portrayed a Russian dancer, which was based on the
 Baryshnikov character in the motion picture "White Nights." After a
 year on "The Colbys," Adrian appeared with Tom Berenger in the motion
 picture "Last Rites." Adrian was a series regular on "War of the
 Worlds" and has made guest appearances on shows such as "Murder, She
 Wrote," "Dark Shadows," and "Beauty and the Beast."

 His wife, Meilani, is one of the 'Uh-Huh Girls," who appears in the
 popular Diet Pepsi commercials with Ray Charles. Meilani, along with
 her two counterparts, has been given the dubious honor of "Women We
 Love," in a recent Esquire magazine. Says Paul, "Everywhere we go,
 people are singing 'uh-huh'. In the HIGHLANDER, the saying is 'there
 can be only one,' so Meilani and I are going to combine the slogans,
 which will read 'there can be only one -- uh-huh."

3.2.2) Alexandra Vandernoot (Tessa Noel)

 Alexandra Vandernoot has been living in France for the past six
 years, but is originally from Belgium. She comes from an arts-related
 family. Her late father was a symphony conductor, and her mother was a
 dancer. She studied drama, earning a degree at the Conservatory in
 Brussels. After graduation, she started to work immediately in the
 theater. After appearing in a number of plays, she decided to move to
 Paris. Two years later, she went back to school to continue her acting
 education before making the jump to American television.

 Her first American acting role was opposite Timothy Hutton in the
 HBO movie 'Strangers'. She also guest starred in an episode of the
 syndicated series "Counterstrike:.

 Vandernoot lives in Paris. During her free time, she renovates her
 recently purchased country house. (Taken from the HIGHLANDER: THE
 SERIES press kit.)"

 Update: Alexandra Vandernoot left the series after the fourth
 episode of the second season. She wished to continue with her
 feature film career and did not wish to be separated from her family
 in Paris for the part of the year.

3.2.3) Stan Kirsch (Richie Ryan)

Stan Kirsch (25), originally from New York City, moved to Los Angeles
three years ago. "I'm an urban kid who grew up in the city with a
sister and two great parents." His first acting experience was a
Campbell's Soup commercial when he was 4 years old, which was
followed by a few modeling jobs. He left the business for a while,
but returned to it in high school at St. Paul's Boarding School in New

While attending Duke University as a political science major, Kirsch
worked on his acting skills with a master trainer of acting. "I went
through the whole spectrum of acting, movement, and voice work, which
was all geared toward Shakespeare and regional theatre." Kirsch
performed in summer stock and fell in love with the profession. "I
made $24 a night to perform in a play six times a week in the
mountains of North Carolina. It was the greatest summer I'd ever had
and I couldn't get rid of the acting bug." After graduating from Duke,
he moved to New York, and within six months, he signed with an agent,
got his Screen Actors Guild card and headed out to Los Angeles.
Kirsch has made guest appearances on the ABC soap "General Hospital;"
Fox Broadcasting's "true Colors;" and recently starred in "the Streets
of Beverly Hills," an ABC Television pilot.]

3.2.4) Werner Stocker (Darius)

 Highlander fans grew to love the character of the Immortal priest
 Darius (who was first introduced in "Band of Brothers") and we were
 all shocked when this character was killed off in the first season's
 closing episode "The Hunters". Then we were greatly
 saddened last July to hear belated news of the death Werner Stocker,
 the actor who portrayed him. Gradually details trickled in from
 various sources. The original subplot was that the character Darius
 would appear in 5 episodes and would be killed off in the fifth one,
 the season finale. Shortly before filming was supposed to start on
 "The Hunters", Werner Stocker informed the producers that he was too
 sick to report to the set in Paris. The writers frantically rewrote
 the episode script in three days. (All the scenes containing Darius
 in this episode came from footage shot for previous episodes). A
 month and a half later Mr. Stocker died of a cerebral tumor.

 Werner Stocker was born on April 7,1955 in Flintsbach, Bavaria and
 died in May 1993. He stood 6'3" and had green eyes and light brown
 hair.  He began to study acting at The New Munich Acting School and
 later at the Falckenberg School.

 In 1978, he got his first role in a French TV movie, "Les
 Rebelles."  He then played in several German TV series.

 In 1989, he won the Bavarian Movie Award for his role in the
 film "Herbstmilch."

 In 1991 he starred in "Rama Dama" (the sequel to Herbstmilch).
 Werner Stocker was not married and had no children.

3.2.5) Jim Byrnes (Joe Dawson)

 Jim Byrnes grew up in St,Louis, the middle child of a middle class
 family.  He learned to play blues guitar at age 13-- and continues to
 play on his favorite guitar, a Gibson 1969 Hummingbird.  An eclectic
 individual, he studied for the priesthood in a seminary, and was even
 a professional shepherd at one point.  He studied acting at Boston
 University and St.Louis University.  Byrnes is a gifted actor and an
 inspiring individual.  He lost both his legs in an automobile accident
 Feb. 26,1972-- the same day he landed his pivotal "Wiseguy" role as
 Lifeguard fifteen years later.

3.2.6) Philip Akin (Charlie DeSalvo)

 Philip Akins brings to HIGHLANDER, an extensive list of film,
 television and theater credits.  A serious martial artist himself,
 Philip holds a fourth degree black belt in Yoshinkan Aikido.  He also
 studies Kung Fu and Tai Chi at a dojo near his home in Toronto.  An
 avid bicyclist, Philip has been known to cycle everywhere, including
 the audition that got him the job on Highlander.

3.2.7) Bob Anderson?

 Bob Anderson is the sword master on both of the Highlander movies
 and the majority of the TV series episodes. His career spans several
 decades and his extensive credits include 'Star Wars', 'The Princess
 Bride', and the new 'The Three Musketeers' movie.

3.3) U.S.A. vs. Rest of the World

 Each episode sold for U.S. syndication is four minutes shorter than
 the episodes sold for the European market. This is due to the longer
 commercial time allocated in the U.S. market.

3.8)  Where in the World are we?

 The first 13 episodes of the first season and the first 14 episodes of
 the second are filmed in Vancouver, BC, Canada. No attempt is made to
 avoid or disguise major landmarks.  This was never specifically stated
 in the series.  It is thought that the producers of the show simply
 want it to be a "Generic, Nondescript City."  All the vehicles have
 Washington State (USA) license plates as if it were supposed to be
 Seattle.  Throughout this FAQ, it has been called Vancouver, BC.
 Though some of the fans refer to it as Seacouver.

 The last 9 episodes of the first season and the last 8 of the second
 are filmed in Paris, France.  This is specifically stated in the
 series. Filming for the Paris episodes started early in January.

*4.0)  _HIGHLANDER II, The Quickening_

4.1) Summary

This was a rather disjointed movie that taken by itself was an OK
action/adventure film, but, taken as a sequel of the original movie,
was a major disappointment to HIGHLANDER fans. We are told that
Immortals are actually political exiles sent to Earth from another
planet, Zeist, 500 years ago and we are introduced to a rather
convoluted redefinition of the Rules of Immortality to fit this
senario. We learn that Connor MacLeod, after winning the Prize, lead
the effort to erect a planet-covering Shield to protect the Earth
from the Sun's radiation since we've almost totally destroyed the
Ozone layer by pollution. And that during their relationship on Zeist
Connor and Ramirez had becomed linked by the magic of the Quickening,
enabling Ramirez to come whenever Connor calls.

Twenty-five years pass before we encounter Macleod again, now an old
man, rambling along, living out his remaining years, at ease with the
fruits of his past glory as a world reknown scientist. The Earth now
has a universal climate of moderately hot and humid due to the
hothouse effect caused by years under the Shield. The corporation
that maintains the Shield has grown into an all-powerful tyrant that
resists any threat to its continued existance, even though some have
started to suspect that the Ozone layer has now repaired itself and
the Sheild Corporation prefers to continue it's monopoly as the
world's energy provider and saviour. A terrorist organization called
Cobalt, headed up by Louise Marcus, is currently conducting raids on
the Shield installations trying to obtain concrete evidence of the
Ozone layer's condition.

After Louise acquires the evidence, she seeks out the elderly
Macleod, in hope that he can do something about taking down the
Shield.  Meanwhile back on Zeist, General Katana becomes anxious
that, now that Macleod has 'Won' the Prize, that he'll return to his
home planet to resume leadership of the rebellion there. So he
transports two goons to Earth to kill Macleod once and for all. They
attack the elderly Macleod and after a long dramatic, and sometimes
airbourne, battle, complete with pyrotechnics, Macleod defeats the
two goons. During the battle Connor calls out for Ramirez. Just at
the end of the battle a semi-tractor trailer hauling a tankload of
some sort of highly volitile fuel breaks free and crashes into the
victorious Macleod. Especially distinctive is the imagery of the huge
pair of lips painted on the end of the trailer as it careens toward
him, to give him the 'kiss of death' as it explodes. A rejuvenated
Macleod walks out of the flames to greet the dumbfounded Louise
Connor's 'call' bounces off the Shield to Glencoe, Scotland
and resurrects Ramirez. He suddenly appears on the stage of a
production of Hamlet, just as the actor protraying Hamlet starts the
soliloquy with the skull of Yoric. Once Ramirez realizes that he is
on a stage in the middle of a play he bows and exits gracefully,
absconding with the actor's sword. {Curiously he uses this sword,
presumably a stage prop, as a real weapon later while dueling with
Connor} As he walks backstage to the theater exit, he spies himself
in a mirror, flexes his neck, and comments "Rather glad the magic
works" as he reassures himself that he is now whole again. After
encountering some of the wonders of the twentieth century, Ramirez
makes his way to a tailor to get a new suit since his clothes are
somewhat worse for wear after his final battle with the Kurgan in a
crumbling castle. He is greeted by the propietor with "We are the
oldest gentlemen's tailor in Scotland" to which he replies "Well then,
I've come to the right place; since I am, without a doubt, the oldest
gentleman in Scotland." This results in one of the funnier sequences
in the movie as a whole shop full of tailor hurry about to complete
Ramirez' suit in one afternoon for the price of his huge pearl
earring (hanging from his _pierced_ ear).

Back on Zeist, General Katana realizes that his henchmen have failed
so he transports himself to Earth to take care of things in person.

He proceeds to the Shield Corporation and take over the Board of
Directors by a demonstration of his power.

Meanwhile, Ramirez travels to New York and rejoins Connor. Together
with Louise they go to MAX, a maximum security prison controlled by
the Shield Corp, to rescue Alan Newman, Connor's friend who helped
design and build the Shield.

While there, they are trapped in a room with a large deadly fan
bearing down on them, ready to slice them to pieces. Ramirez gives his
life by using the concentrated 'magic' of his Quickening to hold the
fan above their heads for a few moments while Connor and Louise make
their escape.

Connor and Louise fight their way to the main Beam room where Connor
battles General Katana to the death. Victorious, he steps into the
Shield Beam and destroys the Shield, restoring the world to normal
sky and a normal Ozone layer.

4.2) The Revised Rules of Immortality

In Connor's house Louise restates the rules that Connor has told her
to see if she has them correct:

"OK. Now let me just see if I cant get this straight. You come from
another planet. And you're mortal there. But you're immortal here,
until you kill all the guys from there who have come here -- and then
you're mortal here. Unless, you go back there -- or some more guys
from there come here. In which case you become Immortal here -- again.

"Something like that."

"Of course, it would be 'something like that,' wouldn't it."

4.3) Miscellaneous tidbits

Ramirez says that he is 'the chief metallurgist of King Philip of
Spain' rather than King Charles V as in the first movie.

Connor drives an off-white Porsche convertible, though it is a
different model from the one used in HIGHLANDER I.

When General Katana first arrives on our planet, he is the first
Immortal to exhibit the snapping and popping of re-aligning and
healing bones after a 'fatal' fall when he crashes to Earth, or rather
through it, into the subway car.

Katana reminds Connor of one of the Rules "Remember the Golden Rule,
Highlander. We must never fight on Holy Ground."

In contrast to the first movie, Immortals actually seem to die from
'fatal' wounds, but recover quickly.

After they recover from being shot to pieces entering MAX, Connor
proudly counts 108 bullet holes and then is outdone when Ramirez
announces that he got a total of 112.

When they procede to the lower levels of MAX, Ramirez has his sword
from the first movie (presumably Connor returned it to its former
owner after their duel at his apartment) and Connor carries the sword
he acquired from one of the Zeistian goons. Ramirez' sword is with him
when Louise and Connor leave him to his death in the giant fan room,
standing stuck in the floor.  But later as Louise and Connor flee
through MAX, Connor sometimes has the Zeistian sword and sometimes has
Ramirez' sword. During the final battle with Katana, Connor fights
with Ramirez' katana.

*5.0) _Highlander: The Series_ Drinking Game*
 by Lady Johanna Constantine
 Mark V - July 29, 1993

 This game was born one evening over Spring break when the author was
 showing her friend all the episodes she had on tape.  They were viewed
 consecutively over a 9 hour period, very late at night, in Carbondale,
 Illinois.  Oddly enough, no alcohol was involved, and the author is
 ashamed to admit she came up with mark I completely sober.

 Additions and corrections from all the fine folks on USENET, a few
 from "The Raven" (a Forever Knight letterzine), and a woman in Cleveland
 who shall be known only as Maddog.

 Units of measurement

 One Drink = one swallow or sip.  Or, if you are feeling really daring,
 m&m's or Reeses peanut butter cups can be substituted for beverages,
 if you prefer to be able to walk the following morning.

 Vocabulary notes

 immie = USENET slang for a Highlander-style immortal

 *the* leather jacket = That black, dimensionally transcendental
 leather jacket that Duncan hides 3 feet of steel yet is still able to
 do jumps, kicks, and rolls without any sign of the damn thing.

 dimensionally transcendental = does the word TARDIS mean anything to
 you? ie, bigger on the inside than on the outside.

 Masamune = The Japanese guy mentioned from the movie who made
 Ramirez's sword, not to be confused with Masamune Shirow (no Appleseed
 here, folks)

 laughter.  If you are in a public place, proceed with caution.  You
