Duncan MacLeod is Immortal, and must live in modern society, concealing his true nature while fighting other Immortals.
Christopher Lambert originally asked for just $50,000 to appear in the pilot, but one of the French investors protested it was too much money and had him written out. This made the German investors threaten to withdraw, so he was put back in. But he'd gotten annoyed by the situation so he refused and as a result he was eventually paid $500,000 for 3 days of work.
Come on, do it. Come on, come on, go ahead, do it. When the Quickening knocks you on your skinny little ass, MacLeod's gonna be right there to help you up. I die, you go right behind me.
Episode 1.20, "Avenging Angel", features a swordfight between immortals that appears to be on holy ground; however the site is actually a museum displaying religious artifacts from the crusades. The confusion arises because footage from this fight is seen in the opening credits of later episodes as the narrator speaks of holy ground.
The European-broadcast versions of all episodes were 4 minutes longer than the original US airings (rebroadcasts on USA network have further cuts).
