Outlander series

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

are there any Outlander fans out there?

If you haven't seen it then you are seriously missing out on a romantic, exciting, historical drama set in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland.

It is a series of books turned into a series. The author is Diana Gabaldon, the books are amazing.

I love it and would like to talk to any fans out there about this wonderful show.

If any one wants to chat or know anything about this show then lets chat!!

Here is a clip to whet your appetites and hopefully get you on the trail of Outlander.

 

We should have a similar show set in Old Sheffield, using the Peaks at a scenic back drop.

What could we call it?

Sheffielder??

Ha ha, lets work on it guys, it could be a promising show.

Enjoy the clip.

My wife is a HUGE Outlander fan she is currently reading Book 5 The Fiery Cross.

Also watches Series 1,2 and 3 constantly and is waiting with baited breath for Autumn when Outlander  4 arrives.

She loves the characters and the adventure of it all, and thinks Sam Heughan and Catriona Balfe are fabulous in the series.

If you would like to chat about the series my wife said she would be happy to communicate with you.

My wife is a big fan...having read all the books and devoured everything she can watch on DVD. I tried to read the first book and after a few chapters put it down where it remains unread to this day. As for watching on TV I found the sexual violence disturbing.

Hi Lysander

Yes, there are scenes of sexual violence that I find disturbing too, they are rare and they are supposed to be real experiences that happened in Scotland during the 18th century. Thank fully these are balanced with a passionate love story that overshadows the other.

I am now on the 8th book and I can honestly say the sexual violence has dramatically lessened. If you discuss the books with your wife though I imagine, like me she reads them(And watches them on tv because of the romance. I also watch it because I love all things Scotland too, the scenery, the people, the mountains, the walking etc!!

If your wife ever wants to discuss Outlander with another huge fan, tell her about me please and we can have some good chats.

Unfortunately I am still waiting for Forgeman to come back to me, he said his wife is a fan and he would let her know.

If you ever have any questions about Outlander let me know.

Well, I doubt either of us wishes to broadcast our e-mail addresses... which is why I suggested you use the Personal Message facility on this site. That way only the two of us get to know our contact details.

I am aware of what you are saying, what I am saying is that I would prefer to talk on these general pages and not through my email address.

My wife isn't a member but try writing something about Outlander and let's see how it works out...but I wonder how many other members would find the topic of interest.?

PS A private message wouldn't involve either yours or my wife's e-mail address!
