"Awakening, Part One" which I just saw again last night on Toon Disney is spectacular. If you will forgive the reference, the first time I saw the first ep reminded me a lot of the first time I saw the original "Highlander" movie.
The jumps in the time period of the story sort of parallel, but it is more the fact that I wasn't sure what the heck was going on in the first few minutes but I was captivated anyway. I mean that in a good way. The story kept me sweetly off balance as it developed into a masterpiece. It was a tremendous foundation for a fantastic series.
The original Highlander movie was a mixed experience for me when I first saw it in NYC way back when with Cary Bates. There was so much to enjoy: Lambert, Connery, Clancy Brown. And such great ideas.
But I felt the execution was a little disjointed. It's been a while since I last saw it though. I think it's aged well, as long as you ignore the sequel films. (By the way, I thought the series was wildly inconsistent. Some great episodes and some real dogs. Never reached its full potential, but some times it came damn close.)
