Trivia
bulletThis is the first part of the two-part story that finishes Highlander: The Series.
bullet'To Be' shows us what happens to Amanda and Joe had Duncan never been born (while Fitz also reveals that he would have died in 1720 after being caught trying to blow up Parliament if Duncan hadn't have been there).

Verdict
Great concept - whoever thought of remaking It's A Wonderful Life deserves a pat on the back. This first part is a little slow to get going, though, which is why is doesn't quite score as highly as it could. B+
