• New York Comic Con 2018 Part 1: Executive Producer Ron D. Moore

    Kicking off the big weekend I attended Outlander Executive Producer Ron D. Moore’s panel on Friday to get myself ready for Saturday. It was at a smaller venue near the mammoth Javits Center and so it was more intimate. Chris Parnell, the Sony Pictures Television Co-President, along with Mark A. Altman a “trekspert” and author, both moderated

  • Outlander Season 3 Collector’s Edition: What’s in the box?

    As Droughtlander labors on, super fans like me pre-ordered the Season 3 Collector’s Edition and when it arrived, gleefully unwrapped the package with a smirk not unlike that of the Amazon’s logo. The first thing I noticed was how light it was compared to the hulking Season One Collector’s Edition but on second thought there

  • Season 3 Ep 7: Creme de Menthe – Minty Fresh?

    The honeymoon is over! Dr.Randall calls, Jamie and Claire still have a lot of ‘splainin to do, Young Ian the Deflowered, and I have some questions about some mystery scenes…

  • Urban in Scotland: Day 1 Glasgow & the West End

    When I arrive in Glasgow on a late Wednesday morning, the weather is fine. Hey I didn’t come here for the sun (there is none)! Although on my first day, it’s none of that Scottish “dreich” (Scots word for the wet, cold, gloomy weather) that I hear so much about. Yes it was cloudy but

  • What Would Claire Do?: Traveling Solo

               The hem of my blue skirt flaps in the wind as I bike along a dirt path on a main road that heads back into a small town. I’m beating the sun’s descent below the humid horizon as my legs peddle faster. The dampness of my hair clings to my

  • #VoyagerVirgin: The Voyage up to the 20th Chapter

    Before I embark on my first voyage to Scotland, I’ve been reading “Voyager”, the third book of Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander” book series. This is not only the first time I’m reading the book but also reading it before I watch the season on Starz TV. I’m sensing a theme of a lot of firsts! I’m

  • Dragonfly in Amber: Reflections on the book & the TV adaptation

                So Season 2 ended (with a bang I think!) and “Dragonfly in Amber” (aka DIA) beckoned me from my bookshelf as Droughtlander began. I read DIA for the first time after Season 2 ended. This was a theme I began after seeing Season 1 and then reading the first book “Outlander”. All of this

  • Season 2 – Ep 13 – Dragonfly in Amber

    It’s the last episode of Season 2! I got my box of tissues but I’m groovin’ to the 60s music. There’s so much to talk about! Great performances by Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan but where’s the Bahston accent Brianna? Claire is still chasing Jamie’s ghost and she pulls a Lady Macbeth. Dougal, we’ll miss

  • Season 2 – Ep 10 – Vengeance is Mine Pt 1

    It’s Ep 11 of Outlander’s Season 2! Diana Gabaldon “Herself” penned this week’s ep and I’m counting a few Gabaldonisms. Surprised? Sam/Jamie and Cait/Claire are all mixed up but that’s cause they’re my friends…in my head. The Duke of Sandringham and m-m-m-marvelous Mary are back but…Wherefore art thou, Alex Randall??

  • Season 2 – Ep 7 – Close Your Eyes and Think of Scotland

    In this episode title “Faith”, how many tissues did you go through? My face is still puffy from crying. Claire and Jamie are tested once more and their Faith carries them through. Catriona Balfe’s performance is nothing short of a tour de force. I don’t need to see anymore from Black Jack Randall. Let’s just

  • An Outlandish Hat Chat with Ellen Christine Couture

      Ellen Christine is a very cool lady. She’s a milliner and for those of us who are not familiar with that term (I for one!), it basically means that she makes hats for women. Nestled in a corner of the West Village in New York City, her atelier is a wonderland of fabrics, ribbons,
