Very accurate to the book but I can't see it drawing in the passing viewer.
Btw, I got 3 months free of all premiums last time I called for a deal.
I just watched the first episode on starz.com, no subscription necessary.
Do we need to spoiler comments?
The Druids at Dawn were beautiful.
Jamie will do quite nicely
I did not care for book Frank at all but show Frank was fine.
I agree with this- unless you know what is coming it may have been a bit slow to start.
I agree with your thought on Frank. Never liked him in the book. The show one is better/different.
Maybe we need to start an episode thread so we can mention spoilers.
You should. People may see this thread (and start reading it) and abandon it since it does not seem to have anything to do with the episodes themselves. So either a season thread or specific episode threads seem indicated.
Season 1 thread-
I'm kind of amazed that the premium cable channels are still able to get away with the pricing that they do. I mean, Netflix streaming is $8 a month, and gets you really good original shows along with way more movies and TV shows from other sources then any cable channel would...and you don't have to subscribe to basic cable to get it. I've been wanting to finish up Spartacus and check out Magic City, but not at those prices. Happy that there are people that are willing to do it though, so eventually the good stuff will trickle down to us poor plebes.
And back to Outlander, they have been advertising the books on my wife's Kindle, but I didn't know they were a TV show until now. I was disappointed by looking at the cover of the book to realize this was probably not a continuation of the Sean Connery Outlander.
Outland, you mean? I think I saw it long ago... probably should look into watching it again. I think it was pretty good...
Yep, just checked. For some reason it has stuck in my head as Outlander for years. I barely remember it, except that I thought it was awesome when I was a kid.
You probably combined Outland and Highlander.
Outland was just so so IMO...
I was probably 10 or 11 when I saw it, so my recollection of it and how good it is/isn't is probably suspect.
I realized you got it already but I don't get why you'd be hesitant to pay $13.00 a month for starz but you're willing to buy it from amazon or itunes. Seeing that a Big Brother episode cost $2.99 I don't think a show from a premium channel would be cheaper so you'd be paying close to or more than subscribing.
That is steep! Most of the time I see episodes at $1.99 with a significant discount if you buy the whole season. That would have been around $8/month (assuming 4 shows a month).
Most of the time I see SD episodes for $1.99, HD episodes for $2.99.
Might be. I never buy these so I may have just noticed the SD price.
Game of Thrones episodes are 2.99 for SD and 3.99 for HD. You can only buy up to season 3. I can't see where a premium channel would give up their latest season of original content for less than a monthly subscription price.
Outlander was a movie in 2008.
During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. It was a good movie.
While your point is still valid GOT is HBO which has a deal with Amazon for old seasons. Starz shows have generally been more available.
Stars "John Reese" of Person of Interest as Kainan
