And RD? I am extremely disappointed in the MLP fandom that I was only able to find one reference to Highlander in the fan art. For shame, pony fans.


Hey, there can only be one and all that. We're just following the rules.
I'm surprised the fandom hasn't touched Quantum Leap, yet.
They're saving the "Dr. Twilight Sparkle Never Returned Home" text for the finale.

So, wait.  Is the general thought that the Highlander script was good?

If they want to make the new Highlander movie good, they need to expand upon the mythos but not try to reveal too many mysteries. IE None of this fucking Zeist bullshit. Introduce a few more elements, keep the watchers but give them a significant dramatic purpose, hint as to what the prize is, what the quickening exactly does, how it increases an immortal's power and abilities, but SHOW, don't tell.

I'M not saying I expect this to happen, after all this is the same person who wrote twilight, so I am scared.

I just hope they don't everdo the flashbacks to various parts of history. Easily the most boring part of the original for me (although I'm probably in the minority in that).

Really, who cares who writes it so long as they still use Queen for the soundtrack.

What in God's holy name are you blathering about?!
The Oliver Onions! :D
Darth Geek did you know they changed the lyrics in the newer version of the song?

When I was blue and dark.
He will see every little spark.
YOR'S WORLD!

Pinwheel was always blowing across the canyon!
YOR'S WORLD!

Air cries "The fry don't wink!"
Some for sleeping the day away.
YOR'S WORLD!

And sees I'm always hiding behind a black cloud.
YOR'S WORLD!

Then slowly comes the dung.
And the daylight the song get hung.
The sun is burning!
The chase is open!
Who'll supply today?
Someone will crush the ground.
And let's get whirled around!
YOR'S WORLD!

He's the man! He's the man!
YOR'S WORLD!

And his gutters of power!
YOR'S WORLD!

He's the man! He's the man!
YOR'S WORLD!

And his pee like a flower!
If you been travel, he'll be there to fly the bat.
Winning Saaaaand!
YOR'S WORLD! He's the maaaan!

YOR'S WORLD! He's the maaaan!
