I know too many people that were obsessed with this show. I'm not even sure why.

When I was in the sixth grade, this was the best show ever.
They just put all of it on Netflix Watch Instantly, and I checked out the pilot yesterday. The acting is even WORSE than I remember. However, the bad guy was played by Richard Moll, and it's hard to be disappointed by anything after that.
random trivia: Roger Daltrey from the Who guest starred on this show frequently.
Adrian Paul trying out so many accents.
Wait wait wait....don't tell me how this episode ends!
Because you know, they all ended the same damn way.
better than the cartoon version...
This show, more than any other, inspired my friends to have intensely beardy debates about the mechanics of the show's universe, regarding such things as "well what if someone just loses a limb" or "what if a non-immortal chops off an immortal's head?"
I like that they answered the last one, at least, by having a mentally retarded immortal who everybody pitied too much to kill, so he committed suicide by resting his neck across a railroad track. Then the train cut his head off and absorbed the retard's soul.
There was also an episode with an immortal with a cut off arm (it stays off). Adrian Paul fought him one handed to make it fair.
Rape Van Winkle
Did they say when he lost the limb? It was pretty well established that the remnants of wounds from before they became immortal (the first time they died) were permanent - but if wounded after they became immortal, they heal almost instantly and no scar is left.
So I still wonder, if he lost his arm after he became immortal, if it would have healed if he held it in the right spot. I don't get the feeling it would have grown back, if the original was destroyed or misplaced.
Fuck you guys for making me want to be in this debate.
Anyway, it was absorbed by Richie, who was standing nearby.
Now is the time of the Gathering, when the stroke of a sword will release the power of the Quickening. This will activate the Hastening, which is the linchpin event for the Trampling. We will then be met with the Stumbling, which, as is written, will set off the Tinkeling. Then, nothing can save us from the Labeling, which will initiate the start of the Unfastening.
This long-prophesized chain of events will be collectively known as The Embarrassing.
I was waaay too into this show.
Unnecessary jet noise for no reason in a title sequence.
