    Original continuity: first movie, Connor wins the prize: THE END

    Second Continuity: HL 1 and HL 2

Ironically Highlander 2 for all its alien hogwash was the only followup to acknowledge than Connor won the Prize and became mortal. I thought a much simpler explanation for a new batch of immortals would have simply been new ones were activated in the 40 years since Connor won the Prize rather than they came from another planet, or an ancient race before recorded time that lived in a crashed spaceship and had machine guns.

    Third Continuity: HL1 but revised so that yes Connor took down Kurgan but it wasn't the final gathering for the Prize, and the TV series plus its spin off.

    Fourth Continuity: HL 1 and HL 3, though HL3 occurred when Season 4 of the series started it did not link to the series.

    Fifth Continuity: The third continuity listed above plus HL 4 and HL 5.

So H3 doesn't link to anything? The series probably didn't contradict it but H4, which was tied to the series did, because didn't it state that Connor went into Sanctuary directly after fighting the Kurgan?

    The third continuity is I believe the one that is considered canon, HL 4 and especially 5 were so negatively received that both may well be disregarded. I know for a fact that HL5 definitely is.


    Now continuity 6 is in the works with a reboot of the original movie.

Ugh. Everything must be rebooted.
