Well, everyone, it's that time of year again: #Droughtlander is officially upon us.Read More
The ways in which this episode of Outlander made me cringe and rage were varied and immense. From the "tropical drum beat" added to the opening song, to the fact that it's an episode filled with nameless black people, and that Claire ends up participating in slavery. Ugh, guys, you should have just stayed in Europe.Read More
How a person mentally handles having lived so long a time in seemingly another world is what makes Outlander so interesting to watch, and every time I do, I’m reminded of a much-beloved episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation—one that touches on how its main character also deals with multiple lives and realities.Read More
Willem Dafoe's original Green Goblin look was much more like a creepy Halloween mask.Read More
If you're a fan of the Jamie and Claire ship, you might find this new Outlander teaser pretty tough to get through.Read More
Stephen Colbert, inspired by Monster Trucks, takes the ideas of eight children to create a dramatic story of two teenagers named Bob with an A-list cast.Read More
A lesson in toxic fandom and imbalance of power.
After months upon months of Twitter backlash and fighting on both sides, many Outlander fans are accusing William Shatner of bullying them into silence. But what's really going on here?Read More
Oblivion State, which is a forum dedicated to the activity of "urban exploring" (although they definitely advise against breaking and entering), shared a few photos from a group who somehow stumbled across the Millennium Falcon set from Star Wars: Episode VIII. I'm not sure how they were able to get past security (or blasters), but the resulting pics are really great.Read More
I met Jamie Fraser when I was nineteen years old. I fell in love hard, fast, and completely. He was the perfect man. That he was fictional hardly entered into it.Read More
In the criminal justice system... who lives, who dies, who tells your story?
Some of us have yet to get our hands on the #Hamiltome (otherwise known as Hamilton: The Revolution, which delves into the making of the famous musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda and the history that was adapted to create the smash Broadway hit). Law & Order:SVU's Mariska Hargitay, a self-professed Hamilfan, was approached by Miranda himself to do some of the reading on the audiobook, and you can listen to an excerpt here.Read More
Saturday night, seaso 2 of Outlander returned to Starz for its 13-episode run. The series, based on Diana Gabaldon’s extremely popular book series, has a pretty rabid fandom, which I saw in full force at the New York premiere screening, including several cosplayers.Read More
It's almost here! Season 2 of Outlander is very nearly upon us at this point, and the gracious folks over at Starz have decided to give us even more of a sneak peek into what Claire and Jamie are up to now that they've left the dreary hills of Scotland for the much more vibrant city life in Paris.Read More
We have our Brianna! It was announced earlier this week that Sophie Skelton has been cast in Outlander. Those who have read the books know exactly where she comes in to the story--and all I can tell you is that it's sooner than you might think. She joins actor Richard Rankin, who was cast as Roger Wakefield (a role with important connections to Brianna) at the end of last year.Read More
And je suis prest.
Yesterday the official Twitter account for the TV show gave us a follow-up to that teaser--diving deeper into the deception and richness that will make up season 2. And I mean literal richness, because Jamie and Claire are dressed to the nines and living in a super swanky apartment in France--but it's not all fancy parties and good food.Read More
The first trailer for the second season of Outlander has arrived--and man oh man, does it look good.Read More
Strong women and strong relationships galore.
When it was first announced that the Outlander series was being made into a television show, the news was met with guarded excitement. Fans had been waiting for years for an adaptation that would do justice to the characters and the story. And then there were more murmurs when it turned out that the show would be airing on Starz, which certainly provided more opportunities to keep the series from being watered down for network television.Read More
That vacant stare tho
I hope if society falls apart tomorrow, this is the artifact future civilizations will judge us by. This and Johnlock fanart.Read More
I'm just gonna come out and say that I'm pretty scared about Outlander's April 4 return.Read More
Oh, aye, Sassenach.
Here's your reminder that Outlander is returning eventually (April 4), and as Sam Heughan says, "if you liked the first half of the season, the second half of the season's a lot darker."Read More
Oh, aye, Sassenach.
Outlander premiered this year at San Diego Comic-Con, and composer/super-talented performer Bear McCreary was there to bless the audience with his music. Here with fiddler Paul Cartwright and singer Raya Yarbrough, McCreary performs the themes from Outlander.Read More
