Now on Hulu: Highlander, The Complete Series

June 26th, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

There are a number of shows we consider fan favorites at Hulu, and today’s Hulu Days of Summer debut is on the short list. Full of plot twists and complex story lines — not to mention sword fights and love scenes — Highlander is a fantasy-driven, mid-1990s look at the adventures of Duncan MacLeod.

The special twist to this story? MacLeod’s an immortal warrior who was born in Scotland more than 400 years ago. But he’s not alone. Other immortals roam the world, clashing with each other in hopes of becoming the sole survivor of their kind. (These immortals aren’t invincible — they die when they are beheaded.) In each episode, an immortal seeks out MacLeod, hoping to finish him off so they’re one step closer to being “the one.”

One of the many reasons why Highlander is compelling is how it looks at the life of an immortal, showing how MacLeod copes with outliving his family and loved ones, his community, and even his culture. It all links back carefully to the Highlander movie — an instance where the TV spinoff stays true to its cinematic roots.

Starting today, Seasons 3-6 join the first two on Hulu. If you’re new to the show, feel free to dig in from start to finish here. Otherwise, you can pick up where you’ve left off with the first episode of season 3:

    Now that you have the “complete” series, when will all the episodes be available? Also, I have to say that I’m a little confused as to why you can call it the complete series when you don’t have all the episodes. The one *I* want to see is episode 4 of the first season, but it’s not there.
