The first Highlander movie is an epic cult classic.

Ever since there have been far too many attempts to re-create that magic on the big screen and the small…the latest attempt is on SciFi tonight called Highlander the Source.

After X movies and shows, we’re finally going to figure out how the immortals became immortal.

Trailer is pretty slick..and the show…well..it follow the standard Highlander model..(namely weak’ish ploting, mediocre acting, excellent action and sound and excellent pacing to an ultimate finale where someone loses their head and a Quickening occurs).

My main problem with this show is – what the frak is considered canon for Highlander? I had thought Highlander : Endgame was it…but now? i don’t know.

Isn’t Christopher Lambert supposed tobe the REAL DEAL Highlander?! Sure Adrian Paul is good but??

Here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it yet…

This week I found myself in Chicago for business ..and it’s Wednesday so i had to seek out a comic book store. I came across Graham Cracker comics on a google search..their website claims they’re only open till six. Considering i was working until 5:30 i figured it might be tight.

I got there about 6:10 and figured i’d be screwed but they were still open! (went to the store on East Madison downtown). So #1 KUDOS for staying open on new comics Wednesday.

On the negative side – no bag and board (just like the MidTown Comics in NYC or Silver Snail in Toronto) and overall a much smaller store than either Midtown Comic or Silver Snail.

Nice enough though and hey they had many of (though not all like Midtown) of the new books i was looking for.
