Please make sure to check out the link below
Highlander

I have tried to minimize jumping between shows
S = Season | E= Episode
if it only says S01 that means all of that season
I've added a few extras that fall into the storyline

This one doesn't really follow a continuum....and we're not going to talk about the 2nd movie (you can skip it all together)...
think of it as, the movies are all set in different universes....which is why I have labeled them as alternative storylines, I do suggest watching the original movie first but honestly even that's not needed...
so well this is really a very loose suggestion....Watch the first movie, then the tv series, then the spin-offs, then follow with the rest of the movies....or watch all the movies then the tv series and the spin-offs.
just be forewarned to expect plot holes (chasms) and things to be left without answers....ENJOY :)

well....Highlander: The Animated Series was a bust, I mean...it was ok (set in the future and another dimension were Ramírez is still alive), interesting but total chaos, slightly changing the backstory almost every episode, the entire theme of the series is that all immortals took an oath, all except for one (the bad guy) but then in later episodes there are others that didn't take the oath and then they rewrote the backstory to add a character, changing who said what and then of course they broke their oath to fight the bad guy....and of course this oath is really all it is is that they won't fight one another (that took the oath), so how does that stop them from fighting the bad guy, since he didn't take the oath....yet in almost every episode one of them ends up fighting the bad guy, to you know save the highlander...and apparently now, if you take the oath you can willingly force a quickening without being beheaded, you can pass on your knowledge and strength to another but you lose your immortality....and then of course they just cut the series so meh....

on to The Methos Chronicles....stupidity....some crappy flash webseries....I mean ok it gives some backstory to Methos but so not worth watching them (little 1 - 3 minute episodes, 16 in all, that I found)...apparently only 8 of the episodes are legit and the series was cancelled, the rest are fan made to complete the season  :))
hell I'd accept if it was all fan made as poorly as it was but it started out as an actual webseries and was absolute rubbish....I ended up just playing them in the background (just listening, not watching)....
on a side note I did find a fan created series that is pretty decent: "Highlander: Dark Places" Episode 01 - YouTube
 =)) and for some shits and giggles: Highlander: The Connor & Duncan Show - YouTube

hopefully Highlander: The Search for Vengeance turns this bullshit around....I mean ok I wasn't expecting much, going into all of this full well prepared to be let down...
The first movie is good, the series is good (now I remember when it aired it was pretty awesome but well....we'll say now-a-days it's good), The Raven not too bad (follows Amanda, it's supposed to be after the original series, but then again she's a thief again, which during the series she stops being a thief because of Duncan....so either this is set before that, or afterwards and because Duncan's not in her life she reverts to being a thief again)
now hoping that the search for vengeance turns out to be ok because I already know that the other movies
Highlander II: The Quickening
Highlander III: The Sorcerer
Highlander: The Final Dimension
Highlander: Endgame
Highlander: The Source
are all gonna suck....I mean that's why no one ever talks about the other movies.....nope there's just one highlander movie that's it... :)) the 2nd movie is an affliction that never should have been created and yet they just kept making more sequels.....

ug...and Highlander: The Search for Vengeance is a bust
pretty much the entire movie is just sex and war......

i'm an hour in and that's all this entire thing has been fucking and fighting with a few minutes of an actual story about the evil dude with a virus to kill everyone and he must be stopped.

typical anime trash
(no i'm not saying anime is trash, just saying this is that genre of anime trash wanna be hentai)

ok...as much crap as everyone gives the Highlander II movie....
in retrospect, after watching all the other animated stuff.....
I can't talk shit about the movie 😂
yeah it's still, we don't talk about it.....because let's face it, the original movie was not made to be a squeal (or what do you call it when they make 4 more movies)....they wrapped it up nice and neat and poof the end....so to come back with anything is just bs....
but comparatively to all the other shows (except for the series and the raven) 😂 this shit is awesome 😂😂😂
