Sooo…I admit it, my love of story, my insatiable curiosity about people…ever always “under Solomon’s sun” and also ever always surprising…and thus I watch a lot of TV. Now, I DVR things so I can fast forward thru the commercials (hated since I was just over 3 years old), and I delete quickly as well…but most things I will at least check out (except for the “dead body shows”…the ones that seem to delight in shoving dead and dissected corpses in my face as they figure out over and over again the same culprit to the same crime (only the names have been changed to charm the innocent and dull the naive).
I checked out Outlander.
See, an acquaintance is wild about all things Gabaldon, and passion by people that I respect draws my interest to the object (or subject) of their passion.
So…as tv series go, it is well done. Far more salacious than I expected, not that I am offended. Rather, I think the same things could have been said stronger and more powerfully sans the curtains pulled back and the mystery demystified in the light of Solomon’s sun. That aside, the story is wonderful…far better and treated more seriously than the movie Outlander a long time ago.
My friend would have a far more informed perspective regarding the fidelity of series and book…I just found myself drawn into the drama…
…and particularly taken with the plight of the heroine…waking up conscious in a time not her own with no way back home.
If you enjoy this so far, please chime in on the comments, I would love to hear more.
