This show lost me a while back, but my one favorite thing was Kenzie. I am sad for all you fans left that the heart of the show is now gone.

I forget how bad I hate Randall until I see him again, then a passionate and irrational hate charges in. I really like Jenny and Ian both, they did a good casting call there. As for Claire and her mouth, it takes her quite a long time to learn how to check herself and she still often fails in her attempt, but actually that strong will is one of the things Jamie loves about her. The grain wheel scene, oh my! I can watch that repeatedly. We finally get to see him outside in a bright light that shows off his physique, which is quite stunning, even my husband mentioned it..... that is what he aspires to, on that matter I will say no more. I don't remember who rats Jamie out to the black watch, but it may have been the father of the boy they took in.
Regardless of whether or not there is a sex scene, I love this show. I prefer character driven shows, I want to see how they grow and change as time passes. If sex occasionally happens fine, but I am more interested in the story so sex is pretty far down on my list of what makes me love Outlander and want more, more, more! I am already sad when I think about the season finale and how long do we have to wait till next season starts.

I have tried many ways to figure it out, but how old is Jamie compared to Claire? He said when he is 40, she will be 247. Help.

He was just referring to her age based on her coming back in time, not her actual current age. She is, I think, five years older than he is in current time, so I think he was making a joke since now he knows she's from 200 yrs in the future.
Did this explication help at all? In my head it does but does it in the reading?

My sister recalled him being 23 from the books to her 27, but that's pretty close to 5 years. What's funny is how dramatically different that age difference was in that time compared to now when nobody bats an eyelash!

Agree with everything you said. I never thought I'd be as uncomfortable as I am with a sex scene, however, as it is when tossed into Outlander. Maybe it's because outside the scene just before he took her to the stones, they're written more for men than women. I don't get that. What I love about Tobias Menzies (who plays Frank/Black Jack) is I don't hate Frank, but want to punch Randall myself. That's great acting. I also adore how they can take a comical moment, such as that near the wheelhouse, and spin it dramatically when Jenny saw Jamie's back. Outlander literally has it all.

It's amazing isn't it ?! Frank is okay and yet Kack randall makes me cringe ! I so hate the man. Yet it's the same actor ! Tobias is fantastic !

Outlander Season 1 Episode 12 Review: Lallybroch

i love this show. makes me want to go to Scotland (and b 25 and fall in love with a scotsman in a kilt). and Jamie is a dream. i do agree with the not missing the sex part. they say it's not but it is, in fact, soft porn. (although i did watch the wedding episode about 10 times--the first time my 87 year old mom was visiting and had to leave the room). i do think you can make it sexy without going there but... feel bad for actresses today. i have read all the books except the last one and do hope the show lasts a long while. can't wait for black jack to get his...

I think the show is here to stay. By far, it's STARZ biggest hit ever. Ever since reading Outlander the first time, I wanted to swing back in time and fall in love with a 23 year old Highlander. I used to devour time travel romances, but there's a reason this one took the world by storm. It's so much more. And what a production, right??

Scandal Season 4 Episode 20 Review: Bark, Bite or Both?

Every last one of the people on this show are inept except, quite amusingly, the new VP, who everyone thinks is... inept. This show's so awful, I can't help but watch it to see how awful it can get.

Given how this show has been playing out, I half expect(ed) she'd somehow wind up resurrected to be the voice/hand of the Lord or some such. ;)

Outlander Season 1 Episode 11 Review: The Devil's Mark

Beautiful episode!
I just wondered what ever happened to Geillis after she was carried away to be burned. Does she truly get burned and what repecussions does this have in the present? Or does she dissappear and go back to the present before anything can happen to her so the whole cosmos has to be reset? I'm thinking about her parents' meeting and her birth, all her encounters and actions in her 1968 life (which must undoubtedly have been the hippie-life, hence the naked dance...wonderful, wonderful Geillis! :-)) I mean...if a person from the present dies in the past, it must have serious effects in the present......Does the book take that into account?
And maybe also this question is answered in the book, but how did Jamie get to know that his wife is in trouble. How does he mysteriously turn up Again even though he ws far far away? Why did Dougal not come to the rescue of his pretty, young and very pregnant wife?
I love Claire and Jamie's love affair. My God, he is so romantic and gentleman'like. fabulous series. Looking forwar to hearing what ohers think about my questions raised. :-)

Did anyone else notice the major flaw in how Derrick was killed? The area where he stopped did not have cell reception, so how did his phone ring? Furthermore, someone as smart as Derrick would never stop in the middle of the road to search for his phone, especially since he was in the middle of turning around. If Shonda Rhimes wanted to kill Derrick off, she could have at least made the scene believable. I agree with several other posts, it has been the story of MerDer that has kept me tuning in for the past few years, not sure that I care anymore.

I was not a fan of this episode. I miss the four of them Danny, Steve, Kono and Chin if does get picked up I want that back

The Originals Round Table: Klaus Takes a Nap!

I just have to say to the writers I love all of your theories & opinions and wit but I gotta disagree with the opinion about Klaus being daggered was the rite thing. Maybe it was on TVD. season 2&3 but now it was the biggest mistake ever especially for Elijah. Klaus maybe paranoid & has trust issues but when has he been wrong? He's smarter than anybody & always one step ahead of everyone on this planet I don't care how powerful of witch he's dealing with. This is his daughters life the 1st person in a 1000 yrs that klaus will trust, and be vulnerable with and a love 4 her that is pure and innocent he was right about Elijah, he is not what he once was he proved that when he daggered klaus Klaus will never hurt his siblings ( the ones that love him) klaus is the only one who can protect hope if he says so he has yet to be proven wrong about the things he claims to know & his trust&mistrust is never misplaced. He knows his siblings all to well(rebekah being naive and elijah just not being Elijah at the moment) he's protecting all his family not just hope by doing this on his own he will go very far for very few & that few just made a detrimental mistake god it's so obvious everything I've I stated here for people that understand the layers and complexity of Joseph's character Klaus.
