The Highlander TV Show debuted well over a decade ago, and since then it has been embraced by fans across the world. The audience views the wicked world of Immortals through the eyes of Duncan MacLeod, who is played by Adrian Paul. Many of us have read stories about mortal and Immortal in schools, but never really contemplated on the issue of life vs. death and staying vs. continuing. These are the themes depicted in Highlander and they are what caught my attention when I first started watching the show.
Season 4 once again builds upon these themes and uses the concepts to develop the characters even more. One of my favorite episodes has to be "Promise" because it is filled with action, passion, and emotion. The story line is basically about Duncan having made a promise back in 1755 in order to save the life of a young friend named Kassim. However, that promise takes a tragic turn when Kassim asks Duncan to assassinate the amazingly cruel dictator ruling in a part of Mid East. Ironically, Duncan denies that request and carries on with his own missions. Later, it would appear clear that he made a mistake as Rachel's life is put in danger and Duncan is faced with a difficult decision. He has to decide to whether honor his promise or do what he believes is right. Now, don't we all go through that in our lives?
Season 4 DVDs contain all these great episodes:
Disc 1: "Homeland" + "Brothers in Arms" + "The Innocent"
Disc 2: "Leader of the Pack" + "Double Eagle" + "Reunion"
Disc 3: "The Colonel" + "Reluctant Heroes" + "The Wrath of Kali"

The Box Set includes some awesome bonus features and they add so much to this collection:

Overall, this season was exciting because of all the evolutions in the plot and characters. I recommend anyone fans of the show or interested audience to explore this DVD Box Set and I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
