    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.


Yes, I always give a new show a chance to warm up, to find it's feet. I admit I didn't watch too many - no more than five or six - but that was more than enough for me.

Yes the pilot episode had its flaws, no arguing that.

The S1 episode with Joan Jett showing up as a psycho-femme fatale immortal was awful

Constantly leaving Tessa at home while he goes off to fight the villain of the week got old quick.

Bad Day in Building A was an episode where Duncan got to show off more of his other skills and to face off against non-immortal enemies without giving away his secret. A step in the right direction.

Halfway through Season 1, the episode where Grayson and Darius were brought in and Duncan shifted his operations to Europe was where the show started improving.

Episodes of Season 1 to watch due to being pretty good or also expanding on parts of the mythos:

Ep 7: Mountain Men

Ep 8: Revenge is Sweet, Duncan tries to run away before the quickening over takes him showing that there is no escape from it.

Ep 9: the Sea Witch: shows that proximity counts even if you don't do the beheading

ep 2: Innocent Man: shows Duncan's code of honor and that he will go out of his way to save an innocent. Also a funny tagline at the end of the fight "In the future I'l lremember to leave your friends in peace." Duncan's response "What future?" and bheads him with a vengeance.

Ep 11: a bit weak but does confirm that all immortals are foundlings/orphans

Ep 13: Band of Brothers. Grayson and Darius are introduced into the series along with the concept that Grayson being an "ancient" immortal (almost 2000years old) could be an automatic win against Macleod who is only 400

Ep 15: immortal Xavier St Cloud (Roland Gift of Fine Young Cannibals) plays the latest immortal villain. He escapes Duncan after being "disarmed" and returns in Season 2. He would also appear in later episodes in flashbacks. This ep shows that immortals do NOT regrow lost body parts........though it also did not show if they could reattach the lost part and hope it regenerates back in place.

Ep 18" Lady and the Tiger: first appearance of Amanda, 'Nuff said! \:\)

Ep 22: the season finale: The Hunters we also get Hugh Fitzscairn played by Roger Daltry of THE WHO
