    Re: Outlander (Starz)

    For me, Tobias Menzes will always be Rome's Brutus, so I'll never really like ANY character he plays. I may have seen him in other roles before that, but Brutus is the one that made the most impact and that's not a sympathetic character. For some reason, I just can't separate him from Brutus. They're going to have to work harder for me to feel like there's an actual dilemma for Claire in choosing between Frank and Jamie.

    I just started the first book, but I have SO much going on over the next three days that I really can't dive in like I want. It probably won't be until next week.

    When I read the books, my interpretation of Frank and Jamie was two totally different personalities.
    Frank is scholarly, reserved and dull where Jamie is smart, adventurous and passionate.
    Jamie would be my pick.

    Nice article that went beyond the usual write-up:
    'Outlander,' The Wedding Episode And TV's Sexual Revolution

    Certainly echos (in a more intellectual way!) what people have been posting here....the wedding, meltingly hot. Since we don't have Starz I'm hoping it's available in some other format soon!

    I was away on work for three weeks, and even though back home for over a week, now, I haven't caught up on the last 3-4 episodes. I'm confused, I thought they did 12? Are they doing one of those annoyingly long mid-season breaks? Can't wait to see the rest of what's available, and will read that article after I've seen "The Wedding"!

    You got it, apparently one of those annoyingly long breaks...but it's still all one "season".

    Wannasee, in addition to PWS's reply, I wanted to add that there will be a total of 16 episodes this season. The second half is scheduled to start April 4.

    Re: Outlander (Starz)

    Well, now I am really in a quandry...Kiz, thanks for posting the schedule and return date - I looked it up tonight to be sure. April 4th is also my Mom's birthday, so I'll remember. Unfortunately, I was going to cancel my dish before I got caught up into a new cycle...and that comes in mid-April. :-( I may have to wait until available through other sources to see the 2nd half. I'm enjoying the couple of reviews I've seen, though, and may re-read the first couple of books to remind myself of all the happenings. :-)

    Not sure if this was already mentioned but Frazer Hines, Jamie McCrimmon from Doctor Who, will be on Outlander! Diana Gabaldon said she named the male lead in her series Jamie Fraser, after both the actor and character. How neat is that??!!
