1. What happens to immortal heads after the whole lightning thing? Do they explode? Because they only seem to have the bodies left.

2. Why does Duncan wear such terrible, old man trousers? It's as if they picked the least flattering trousers they could find in all of Canada and then clad him in them.

3. Does Boy Wonder Sidekick ever become less annoying? Or is he fated to be appalling teen comic relief forever?

4. In the years before quick, safe transit how did Duncan ever possibly manage to travel around so much? And do they ever run out of periods for him to have flashbacks in? They must do at some point, right?

Both the heads and the bodies are left.

Does Boy Wonder Sidekick ever become less annoying?

No.

In the years before quick, safe transit how did Duncan ever possibly manage to travel around so much?

The time the journey took wasn't really a problem for him, not was dying (usually) on the trip.

And do they ever run out of periods for him to have flashbacks in?

Nope. :)

HL was my first online fandom. :)

I loved HL. Well, the first four seasons anyway. :)

I am not dissing it! I am having awesome fun with season 1, though I feel confident in saying it is not their finest work. :0

Both the heads and the bodies are left.

But they always went on about these headless bodies (not beheaded, just headless) so I thought the heads vanished. My world it is rocked.

I am sad to hear about boy wonder. He's kind of crap.

Maybe they just meant the heads weren't attached to the bodies, rather than that they were missing?

Lots of fans adored him, but he always got on my nerves.

Dude, just wait until later seasons when Adrian Paul started packing on the pounds and wandering around in, like, pyjamas...

In season one they like to put him in horrific jeans. And keep all of his clothes most of the time. It makes me sad.

Boy Wonder Sidekick does not get less annoying. He does however have a change in circumstances in later seasons. But he's still annoying.

And I suppose when time is of no consequence, it doesn't matter how long the journey takes. It's not like he's going to die before he gets to his destination.
And run out of periods for him to have flashbacks in? Surely, you jest. Duncan was a busy man making friends and enemies all over the place. He's got lots and lots and lots of stories to tell. Make your peace with that now and you'll get through the episodes a lot better. ;-)

I've been trying to do the math on this. Figure it might take 20 years to get somewhere (in remote places that's not unlikely), several years to make friends and then fall out with someone. That's a potential of 30-40 flashbacks if we are being generous. IT DOES NOT COMPUTE!!!!

Well, he makes friends and enemies along the way. Duncan has this uncanny ability to be self-righteously annoying. So if he makes a friend on a Monday, chances are that by Friday they think he's an idiot and plotting his demise. It can't be easy dealing with someone who pulls out the "I've around for centuries therefore I know best" card every time you have a disagreement.

It's funny how for a man who has all of eternity (well, until someone chops off his head) he still likes to move fast on the pissing people off front. It is his special skill.

Immortal bodies just lie there all floppy and lifeless. Of course, no police in the history of Immortals have ever figured this out or the source of those awesome lightening shows over Vancouver..er...Seacover, Paris et al.

I don't remember the ugly trousers. I just remember how gorgeous he looked without a shirt. I must have had a brain wipe on anything else.

Boy wonder - annoying, more annoying, totally and completely annoying. However, he does get something that's been coming to him for a long time. I can't let you know because that would be telling but I cheered.

If you are immortal, what's a decade spent traveling around the world. Nope, never run out of periods but the show does settle down location wise in the later seasons. Probably because the company was losing money.

You would think the way that immortals seem to kill each other with gay abandon and carry around giant swords that some law enforcement agency would catch up with them. And where does Duncan pull those swords from? Maybe some of them collapse? Inquiring minds want to know!

(And I still think that prior to 20th century traveling would take so long that even for an immortal might not get tired, but not move around fast enough to have enough flashbacks for a 100 episodes. I get worried about the math. What if he is forced to repeat flashbacks? What will happen then?????)

Most immortals were pretty stupid so never had enough intelligence to be bored on long voyages? Ditto for the police force as well. This is a series about immortals who cut heads off and have lightening shows in heavily populated areas. You want logic?

One of the HL fan fic writers wrote a bunch of great HL stories to answer some of your burning questions (the ones at the bottom of the page).

You have a point.
