    I'll probably watch it too. I read the first book and liked it OK. Not enough to continue, for now. Too many other things I want to read more.

    Magic City has 2 years of episodes on Starz. Set in Miami in the early 60s.

    I liked this show.

    I am currently watching Power on Starz, which is pretty good.

    I'm not familiar with Outlander. I do have Starz, though, so with all the buzz here I think I'll give it a shot.

    GREAT novel.

    It has something for everyone - history, romance, intrigue - the whole shebang.

    Great stuff.

    I am really hoping the show can come close to the book...

    Called DIRECTV and they offered me 3 months for 1/2 price ($7). After that, I will see if we want to renew.

    From the author --

    And there really is so much more - great character development and twists and turns in how characters are connected to each other.

    Sounds like a cheesy Harlequin Romance novel to me.

    Oh no. Not cheesy. Not Harlequin. If you have ever read cheesy Harlequin (which I have) the difference is like night and day. These books are equal to George RR Martin. Actually better, imo.

    If you wait until the month the last episode of the season airs, get Starz for just that month and have a marathon viewing via Starz On Demand.

    Low WAF. We'll see how the three months at 1/2 price goes. :p

    That's my plan, if the show does well.
    From a quick look around a few months ago it seemed to me that the guy playing Jamie didn't look big enough or rough enough- I expected some serious brawn.
    I hope to hear that he does the job well.

    I recorded the show off On Demand to my DVR. I'll have to give it a watch this weekend. I have no idea what the show is about, but people here seem to like it.
