Highlander - Eye of the Beholder television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to a man born in the Highlands of Scotland more than 400 years ago and a murderous game between sword-wielding immortals where there can be only one. Richie (Stan Kirsch) comes between MacLeod (Adrian Paul) and an old friend, womanizer, and thief Gabriel Piton (Nigel Terry) who murdered his lover (Rachel Palmieri) to keep his secrets and has now set his gaze on Richie’s new friend Maya (fashion model Katia Douvalian). Mac’s friendship with Gabriel offers a look at his more carefree days, and also the lengths he will go to for a friend (even one who has betrayed him). Gabriel plays Richie, landing him in prison and forcing MacLeod to do battle with an old friend for the life of a new one. Douvalian, a model rather than actress struggles at times with her lines, but certainly looks good on screen while Gabriel makes for an interesting frenemy who is destroyed by putting his desires and greed above friendship for a second time.
