Miscalibrated Internet Receptor Stalks

I went back and (drunkenly) watched Highlander:Endgame a few weeks ago. I have to say, of the post-series Highlander movies, that one was probably the best, even though the big-bad is completely over-the-top (but great in the flashbacks with Connor). It made me want to go back and re-watch some of the series, especially some of the later seasons when Ritchie becomes Immortal (sorry, spoilers if you’ve never seen the series, but I think enough time has passed.)

One thing I’ve noticed: that show had an INSANE amount of cool genre (and even rock/pop star) guests. Roland Gift (of Fine Young Cannibals) as Xavier St. Cloud is the obvious music star-turned-actor that popped up as well as the way-too-much-fun repeat appearances of Roger Daltry as Fitzcairn, but we also had Sheena Easton, Joan Jett, and maybe a few others. Plus, if you look at the list of Immortals alone, there are soooo many genre actors who pop up: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_H…

Of all of these, who was your fave guest? I’m not counting regular recurring characters (Amanda, Dawson, Methos, Fitz, etc). Mine has to be Bruce A Young as baseball player-turned Immortal Carl Robinson. He was only in two episodes, but they were great (and check out who played his Immortal teacher!)

How about you? Who did you enjoy popping up on the show? (FYI all the episodes are on YouTube legally via the company that owns the show now, if you need a refresher!)
