Highlander: The Series is based on the series of movies by the same name. While the movies starred Sean Connery as Connor Macleod, the Series stars Adrian Paul as Connor's kinsman, Duncan Macleod. Macleod is one of hundreds of beings known as immortals who must fight each other through to death by beheading. Duncan is joined by several longtime friends throughout the series including Richie Ryan, Methos, Joe Dawson and Charlie DeSalvo. He also has several long term girlfriends such as Tessa, Kate and Amanda. With the many adventures, fights and flashbacks there are new guest stars, both friend and foe in almost every episode. The series differs from the movies in several ways. The first is that there is a bit more explanation of how the immortals work and what the rules are to what they call "The Game". It is also a bit more lighthearted at times. In the second season we are introduced to a society called the Watchers, who keep records on every immortal but are sworn to never interfere with their battles. As with anything there is an exception to the rule of the watchers and that rule happens to be Joe Dawson. He is Duncan's friend, but also his watcher. While immortals are not supposed to know that watchers exist, Duncan finds out by tailing Joe and they strike up a friendship as well as share information with each other in regards to "The Game". Originally there were three movies (Plus a director's cut edition of the second which fans completely denounce). Two more movies were made after the series began that centered around Duncan instead of Connor. The series also had a spinoff that lasted one season called The Raven and centered around Amanda, a favorite recurring character. While the exact premise may be a bit confusing at first, Highlander gained a huge fan base who tune in regularly to see what the next adventure will be for Duncan.
