Everything I
Need To Know 

 
 

Highlander:  The Series - A Play in Four Acts, Revisited, by Lisa W.
In the summer of 1997, Lisa Weissman viewed the five existing seasons as having the dramatic structure of a (as yet unfinished) four act play.  She described her view an essay, Highlander:  The Series - A Play in Four Acts.  Then, with the series ended, Lisa was able to complete her literary critique.


Everything I Need To Know In Life I Learned From Highlander, by Kelly Marx.  The title pretty much says it all.  A must read for all immortals and their mortal friends.
