And they say honesty is dead

Hahahaha. Does anybody remember the Highlander-The Raven show? That short-lived spin-off with Amanda? Because I`m just watching some behind-the-scenes interviews from after the show and it`s a riot.
I mean usually people are polite, all "I had great fun working on it... bla bla... don`t know why it didn`t work out...bla bla...everybody gave their best...bla bla...

Well, not in this one. The producer bemoans Amanda`s horrible hair-cut, Elizabeth Gracen tells an epic tale on how the work was horrible for her and she dated a psychopath (her words) back then, Johansson says he hated the title, a director says what can be summed up as "I don`t remember much but it sucked so bad and the leads had no chemistry". Going by these accounts that must have been one of the most hostile sets in the history of television.

I do remember the awful haircut... That was reason enough to stop the show. Maybe if they had shown footage of the set instead, it should have been more enjoyable to watch!

It was pretty horrific, especially seeing as the Amanda-Highlander-haircut was perfectly cute.

Yeah, I heard about that. And it was the reason why I didn't buy the DVDs. I just prefer to live in my own happy world where every set is as a happy place as the SPN and SGA ones.

But you know what's amazing? In my opinion and regardless of their hostility, the leads had a really great chamistry! I loved Johansson on that show and I loved the way they ended it. I adored the look of the series and Hans Jaenicke.

If I want to like a show, I have to like the actors. So here, I really really really try to detach myself from the behind-the-scenes stuff that was going on X(

I was quite crushed to hear of dissention on some of my childhood shows but with Raven it didn`t bother me so much.

In any case the actor`s comments still carried an air of polite courtesy but the producers/directors went to town with the blame-game.I honestly never saw anything like it.
