One other "Highlander" thing

While writing the entry below, I first referred to the sword work as "sword porn."

Is that a proper term, my sword-aficionado friends?

(I decided not to use it, but I wanted to preserve it in a locked post. Thus, this. Kind of like the time Douglas Adams wanted to invent a character name that sounded offensive but really wasn't, so he wrote out FARTIFUCKBALLS and played with the syllables until he came up with Slartibartfast. Or the time in a draft of my Cruel Intentions review in 1999, when while trying to convey what Selma Blair's character becomes, I first wrote the term "enthusiastic penis receptacle." In the final draft I called her "sex-mad." I could get away with that.)

"Enthusiastic penis receptacle." That, man, is comedy gold. And, really: If Highlander isn't sword pr0n, I dunno what is.

The TV show veers wildly between sword pr0n and general flailing about, usually based upon whether This Week's Villain is an actor they trained to wave a sword or a swordsman they trained to read lines...
