In this Side Note I want to talk about my first impression of “The Old Guard”. It’s different but it also feels very familiar. This could easily be branded as a Highlander reboot with a twist… instead of fighting other immortals they band together to fight for the world. I think the concept of The Old Guard really appeals to me because it feels like an independent comic book story which is a great thing because it is an adaptation of a comic book. Honestly I didn’t know this concept was originally a comic until I looked into the show a bit deeper. It’s difficult to judge the quality of anything from a trailer, but this looks really good and action-packed. A bit of fantasy to pass the time, and the Watcher only knows that we could all use that right now.
