Oh. My. God.

THE MOUNTAIN MAN EPISODE OF HIGHLANDER. MARK SINGER. SHENNANIGANS IN THE WILD. ABDUCTING WOMENFOLK.

ETA: THE MOUNTAIN MEN MOVE LIKE COUGARS AND FOR SOME REASON DUNCAN HAD A FLASHBACK TO FIGHTING A MOUNTAIN MAN OF OLD. MARC SINGER IS PUTTING HIS GRIEVIN' BEHIND HIM BY ABDUCTING A NEW WOMAN.

ETA: "YOU KILLED HER MAN, BOYS." OMG THIS IS SO AWESOME. SINGER IS GIVING IT HIS COMPLETE CRAZY UTMOST.

ETA 3: THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. I JUST CAN'T EXPRESS HOW TOTALLY BIZARRE IT IS. I AM CONVINCED THAT MARK SINGER'S CRAZY EYES ARE COMING FOR ME AND HE WILL EAT MY SOUL.

ETA 4: "FIRST I TAKES YOUR QUICKENING THEN I TAKE YOUR WOMAN" Man, they just don't write lines like that anymore.

I have a horrifying vision of me buying further seasons on DVD

This makes me feel slightly less horrified about watching Gossip Girl.

But only slightly.

The mountain men MOVE LIKE COUGARS. Can Gossip Girl promise as much? I think not.

Did someone actually say "Move like cougars" on the show? Because if they did, I'm going to end up watching it eventually.

Yes, oh yes. This episode is seriously awesome in a totally marvellous way.

THE MOUNTAIN MEN ARE SO MOUNTAINY.

Next time there is a TV strike, I am so there. Last time I finally watched BtVS. Somehow I think I should have lower expectations of Highlander, though.

LIKE COUGARS.

LIKE COUGARS.

For some reason now they are having Adrian Paul run through a river and then eat berries. And that's not even in the flashback.

I'm so shocked--I figured that the Gossip Girl boys would be too wimpy for you, when compared with people who MOVE LIKE COUGARS (and sometimes wear fat pants)

It's the argyle. And the cardigans. And the "I'm Chuck Bass."

Yeah, I don't know either.

She does a pretty good Gossip Girl rant, though.

And the best thing about the move like cougars line was that it wasn't even about Duncan. They just threw away that line on a guest star, so unthrifty they are.

Ah yes. Mountain Men. Very Primeval. Obviously pre-feminism. Mac Pretty. Marc Singer crazy.

Marc Singer's crazy eyes will haunt me in my dreams.

Oh, man. My best friend and I watched about half of S1 a while ago (she'd seen the whole series already; I hadn't and basically did nothing the whole time but ask her if the sidekick dies and if it would be soon), but we didn't get to the mountain men! Is it really crazier than the Joan Jett episode? Am I going to have to re-Netflix?

While the Joan Jett episode was excellent (the baby killing!) this one makes it seem restrained. THERE WERE MOUNTAIN MEN AND THEY MOVED LIKE COUGARS. THE CRAZY EYES. ALL THE 'YOU IS MY WOMAN NOW" STUFF.

SO. GOOD.

I...have never watched Highlander but OMG you are so making me want it right now.

I feel very strongly that if you were only to ever watch one episode of Highlander it should be the mountain men one. You will never think of TV in the same way again.
