    I recently discovered Outlander and was able to get Starz for $6/m for 12m (can cancel at any time, don't have to stay for all 12m) from Comcast.

    I had to be transferred to the "solutions team" to do anything better than the $12/m they have on the web site.

    YMMV

    I guess no one is watching?

    I have a question for the book readers. Since it contains spoilers for S3 I'll spoilerize it.

    They assumed that if 20 years have gone by in the present, then when Claire goes back 20 years will also have gone by in the past. So I assumed that when Geillis went through just before Claire, that she would have also ended up in the same time in the past. Which made me very confused. Do they ever explain it in the books?

    I'm watching, but I read the book after the corresponding season ends. :)

    I have not watched season 3 yet, but I have read all the books;
    *my* answer to your specific question is a conditional yes. The time travel is expanded on throughout the series and I can't remember if the details for your specific question was book 3 or 4 (or maybe even book 5 or 6), but I'm leaning towards it being in Drums of Autumn, book 4. I am saying it is conditional because it is speculation by the characters that is only supported by what they have experienced.

    I was just at a high school concert and the choir sang Sea to Skye. With "island drums". Lol.

    Gorgeous song. I'm usually singing it after each episode ends. I remember after we watched episode one of the first season, Gene matched right to his computer to look it up. :D

    My wife and I just finished season three. How many more books are there for the series to draw on?

    How many books have they gone through? I don’t want to read the book synopsis and get spoilers.

    The first 3. Each season so far has been based on a book according to my wife who is the expert. :)

    Yup. If you don't read any further than the first three you won't be spoiled. I want to start the fourth book, but I want to watch the fourth season first.

    I don't believe there's a date beyond "fall".

    We're up to date on Season 4. I believe it's the only show now that we watch the night it airs. I still enjoy it. I love how the changed the song in the opening credits to make it fit with Colonial America.

    One low point for me this season is the Bree/Roger relationship. I see little chemistry between the actors, and the hot/cold arc seems to be contrived.

    Did you watch the talk by the writers after S4E8 "Wilmington"? They basically admitted they couldn't come up with a reasonable justification for the characters actions in the episode. For me, it was obvious; Bree and Roger are complete idiots. Bree embarks on a journey of 200 years and across an ocean with a knife and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? Roger doesn't even make the sandwich!

    They should air immediately after the episode airs.
