Episode 60: BoK Fan Choice: DUENDE Part 1: A Retrospective
One of the things that Kevin and Norm love most about having created the Blood of Kings Podcast, is the growth of the amazing HIGHLANDER Fan Community on Facebook and Social Media. Listener and fan interaction is incredibly important to promoting new discussions in all aspects of the Highlander universe. One BOK fan in particular, LEE FILLINGSNESS, won our very first iTunes Review contest and chose DUENDE as his fan-pick to be covered in this very special "two-parter" podcast deconstructing one of the most famous episodes in Highlander The Series: DUENDE.
Lee chose DUENDE for several special reasons. He wrote to Blood of Kings, "The art of Destreza has fascinated me ever since this episode and it opened my eyes to the intricacy of western martial arts. To that point I had done sport fencing and pretended to be Robin Hood." He continued, "I also appreciated the dance aspect in this show because it illustrated one of the more interesting elements of Duncan, his sophistication."
DUENDE is an episode of Highlander that is also extremely special because friend of the show Anthony De Longis created the indelible Otavio Consone; an Immortal who's morality was as complex as his fighting style of La Verdadera Destreza. Anthony also introduced Highlander fans to the beauty and the allure of the Mysterious Circle and a fighting philosophy that he introduced to many through this episode of television, for the very first time. Please join us as we take an incredibly in-depth look at what is easily in the TOP 10 if not TOP 5 episodes of most Highlander fans and discover a few NEW things about this beloved story.
