• Season 4 Review So Far: Where do we go from here?

    Episode 4 “Common Ground” marks a quarter way through Season 4 of Claire and Jaime’s epic journey through the colonies. In true Outlander fashion, much has already happened and I’m wondering how will the story unfold from here? The teaser for Episode 5 dangles a carrot by way of Brianna: She looks awfully close to those

  • 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

  • #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

You can read a review of it here.   In light of appreciation for the hard work that goes into making this show, I really need to give my two cents about some other hot-button Outlander things that I

  • 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 12 – Praise The Hail Mary!

    Ira Steven Behr and Anne Kenney write a kick ass episode! M-m-m-marvelous Mary is back and she’s brought along the Randall Brothers. I respectfully decline my invitation to this wedding. Dougal and Black Jack’s relationships with their respective brothers delves deeper into their connections. We see tender and affection in new ways from these two.

    This DIA virgin is so nervous for the impending finale to Season 2! How are you getting ready? I’m speculating! Outlander fandom is full of the book readers but I’ll get to Dragonfly in Amber in good time. What will the Battle of Culloden really be like? It’s about the battle of our hearts. Jamie, stop

    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??

We’re over the “mid season” hump and the opening titles have some mystery images: 1960s cars and soldiers!

    Masquerades and Games   I really did not like this episode. Upon first viewing I had no desire to watch it again. Quelle horreur! Right after an episode ends, I always rewatch (again and again) and delight that each one improves upon the last. Episode 5’s “Untimely Resurrection” left me thrilled, exasperated, and eager to

    An Untimely Resurrection is upon us! This episode is a bit mind blowing, tense, and utterly exhilarating! It’s a BJR in Paris but did you feel bad for him being humiliated? I didn’t. The tension builds and we’re left with Jamie and Claire. Is this the Ultimate Test? Don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter!
