      It was 90's bad. Like you could watch it back then and not be bothered because almost everything was bad back then. But watching it now would probably be horrible.

    No, I watched it back then, and it bothered me.

You do get that most pilot episodes are kind of a rough draft right? Usually a show tweaks a few things after a pilot episode (sometimes actors get replaced). And usually in seasons 2 and 3 a show will iron out a lot of stuff fans don't respond to.

I don't think anyone should jump to a conclusion based on a pilot episode is my point. If you watched the next few (and I don't even remember them) then your point stands. Personally I thought seasons 2 and 3 were way better than season 1. I liked the show once they killed off his annoying girlfriend.

But Highlander certainly had it's share of crappy episodes particularly in the early days. No arguing that.
