• Mid Season 4 Check In!

        Hold on as this rollercoaster takes off!    Episode 5 “Savages” So many tears this episode! First, I am loving the opening between Adawehi and Claire. Two equals. Two lady healers talking about plants and thus “breaking bread” together. When Adawehi says about Brianna to Claire “she’s here”, did you think she knew

  • 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

  • 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

    After horse back riding and searching for food in Oban, I begin driving down to Glasgow along the A82. Loch Lomond quietly extends its long length on my left flanked by sloping hills.

    Claire: It looks like you’ve seen a ghost. Frank: I’m not at all sure that I haven’t.             A year and a half ago, I began researching a trip to Scotland and my friend Sarah tells me about the short time she spent in Edinburgh years ago. “It has a

  • 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

               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

  • Byee 2016! Hello Outlander Season 3 2017!

  • 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
