Claire Randall is reunited with her husband after returning from the battlefields of World War II. While on their second honeymoon she walks through one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles and is suddenly transported to 1743 Scotland, torn by war and rogue Highland clans. Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigue and danger when she is accused of being a spy.

Quickly became one of my favorite shows
It’s in parts true to the book and in other ways a world better than the book. I love that in the series that Clair isn’t as whiny as she is sometimes in the book. They have empowered her more in the series. And what’s great about this series is if they do change something in the scenes that isn’t exactly like the book I’m not fretting over it because it’s meant to bring the books to life for a different kind of audience than just readers. I just love it 100% and it makes me happy and giggly as if I were reading the books again for the first time. They have definitely casted the right lead characters and they work so well together, the chemistry is just there and that’s what makes this show worth watching 😉
I'm actually writing more of a feedback to the reviewer who wrote 'good but there's a big inaccuracy'. He/she claims that Claire's knowledge far exceeded that of a nurse, or albeit, a general practitioner, during her time. I would just like to note that my grandmother was a professional nurse during WWII and during those days nurses were closer in education to a general practioner would be today, in relative terms, simply because they had to be. There were always shortages of medical professionals due to the ravages of war and alot of these woman had to learn 'on the job'. If teamed with a 'professional' doctor(s) they would have been trained in skills far exceeding their station and training. Alot of the serving woman, some of them providing medical care directly on the front lines, closer than a doctor would have been, had to make important decisions and needed the know-how to treat the wounded with horrific injuries. Woman also served as apprentices to doctors in the field due to constant shortages. If Claire had spent 6 years serving as nurse during the war, indeed her particular station and experience could very well have provided her with a multitude of skills. A lot of nurses became doctors after the war ended due to this.
Great soundtrack throughout, sublime scenery and great mood including several very funny moments. So, why 2 stars instead of 5? Claire’s medical knowledge far exceeds that of any general practitioner physician, even though she’s only a nurse from 1945. Her knowledge includes Internal Medicine, Traumatology, Obstetrics AND Physical Therapy. That’s one Physician, two Surgeons and one Physical Therapist merged into one person, who again, happens to be a nurse. My problem is: next thing you know, she’s gonna pop a cane and change her last name to House. If the writer wanted her to be so good in medicine, why not just make her a doctor instead of insisting on filling the series with things that just make you nod in disapproval concerning reality. Yes it’s sci-fi, but that doesn’t mean it happens in another universe where people like architects build spaceships and engineers draw buildings instead of it being the other way around. Plus, episode 16 was just ridiculous in terms of writing and storytelling. Honestly, what is it with STARZ and homosexuality? Do they have to include it in each series they make? It has become a signature of theirs.
Other than Doctor Who, I don't think a show have ever made me feel as excited as this one. I find myself pacing trough it so that my pleasure can last longer. "The Wedding" is one of the most pleasant episode I've watched in all of love scene episode.
Season 2 is already out - when will we be seeing it on iTunes???
Where have I even been to miss this until now? Read the novels, and the television series of this is wonderful. They’ve done an outstanding job transitioning book to screen. Bravo, all.
I found this show by mistake one day. While at Walmart, I picked up the Outlander book and noticed it came with a free download of the first episode. I thought why not. Got home downloaded the episode and watched it. I instantly fell in love with it! After the episode I immediately read the book and wanted more. Bought all these episodes and more books. I immersed myself in the Scottish culture. Loving every bit of it! You will not go wrong with this show. It is lovely and made beautifully. Almost like game of thrones with a Scottish twist. 10/10 would buy the rest of the shows on here.
Don't get me wrong, The Scottish countryside, the sets, and the costumes are wonderful to enjoy! The story line continues to degrade as time goes on becoming more and more predictable like a bad Harlequin romance novel. And, unfortunately it appears that, due to the poor script writing, they introduced porn in order to get people to keep watching... which is a pathetic downgrade!
I've read all the books and couldn't wait for this show. I was not disappointed. Can't wait for the second half to be available. Wish it was not on Starz so I could stream immediately when the show comes back.
Everyone and I mean everyone is at the top of their game for Outlander. It is apparent from the opening shot. The acting is superb, the costumes will blow your mind, the writing is engaging and excellent, and the cinematography will have you planning your next vacation to Scotland. Bear McCreary's score will transport you. This is a book adaptation done with care and obvious love and respect for the souce material. Outlander fans are truly blessed to have such a team behind this production.
This is an awesome show. I loved the first 8 episodes and I cann't wait for aprol 4th for the rest of the season. If you love action, adventure and romance this show is for you.
Thank the gods they offered the pilot free, for I downloaded it and it sat unwatched for a while. Finally I caught myself up on other things and decided to give this a try. Wow, I cant explain the emotion and joy of my wxperience of this 1st epesode. I write this review after just seeing the pilot and I quickly paid for the season and eagerly await what lies ahead. Now that I have read this comes from a long line of books, you can bet I will be reading those as well. Happy viewing
I'm a nurse, a bit of a lover of fantasy and just recently married to a Scotsman, so I (naturally) think this show is incredible. That said, the wonderful acting, fascinating storyline and beautiful cinematography are enough, I think, to get anyone hooked on the show. I find myself getting lost in every episode.
I fell in love with it, told a friend, she called me at 4am to yell at me! She said she started and could not stop! I gave her the first book as a present. We are both counting down the days until season 2 comes out. I just hope season two will be on iTunes in April!!
I love this series!! I cannot wait for season 2 to arrive!!! Must read the books & must see the show!
Love this show! But why just 8 shows and the break? With all the books to go, keep churning these out!
Big fan of the book series, they have done an awesome job translating them to film. I noticed just a couple of negative reviews, obviously done by those not familiar with the books. I think it's funny how some say it's copying The Game of Thrones, (incidentally, the two writers are great friends) The Outlander series is over 20 years old. Please read the books and watch the series, this series is as good as it gets!
When I read the first book 5 years ago I was hooked! Then I found out they were making it into a TV series, and I was extremely excited! This show is great! It goes with the book very well so far and the acting is wonderful, I can't wait for the 2nd half of the season to premiere!
