Outlander – Loved the books, and now loving the TV show. In case you missed my earlier announcement, the Outlander book series is now a TV show is showing on STARZ. It premiered Saturday August 9th, and you can still watch the first episode on the website.
Not only is the show visually stunning, for the true fans there are such fun games, memes, and online quizes you can take. I took one called What In Time Would The Stones Take You? I got 1940s England.
I can honestly say the show lived up to my expectations in every way. So, show gossip time is ON. Here is what I liked – the story followed just like the book did. Happy happy. The costumes, set design, acting, all exceeded my expectations.
Here is what I didn’t like… The show is a bit slow. Not in a bad way, but if you haven’t read the books it may seem like it takes a long time to get to the point. Also? Sex scenes. I could have them toned down a bit. I feel a bit more comfortable when I don’t have to act all awkward while watching a show with my mom. However, not a deal breaker for most, just wanted to give you the heads up.
