This time, Morgan teaches noob Tom about the entire history of the Highlander franchise, from its classic Queen-soundtracked first movie, to its dreadful sequel, and its many spinoffs and follow-ups.

Hear Tom get more exasperated with each new iteration, how he forgot Morgan’s birthday and why Colin isn’t an action hero name. Sorry, Colin.

There’s also an interview clip from when Morgan met Christopher Lambert, and a special competition where YOU could win an awesome prize!

Beer choice: Fyne Ales Highlander

The Highlander series began with a 1986 film starring Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, the Highlander himself.

Born in Glenfinnan in the Scottish Highlands in the 16th century, MacLeod is an immortal empowered by an energy called the ‘Quickening’, and is only able to die if beheaded. Nice.

On TV, Highlander: The Series aired for six seasons from 1992 to 1998, starring Adrian Paul as Connor’s kinsman Duncan MacLeod.

There have been four Highlander films, one made-for-TV film, two live-action TV series, an animated TV show, an anime film, a flash animation series, original novels, comic books, and various licensed merchandise. Wow.

Make sure to check out our previous movie-based episodes, including a treasure trove of 1980s sci-fi fantasy romps such as Legend and Labyrinth.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
