Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 208: THE FOX’S LAIR

In Episode 208: THE FOX'S LAIR, Jamie (Sam Heughan) faces off against his unscrupulous grandfather, Lord Lovat, in an attempt to appease the even more (or slightly less) unscrupulous Prince Charles. There's not a lot of time for Jamie to get back into his old life of farmin' and takin' care of his tenants afore he's forced… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 208: THE FOX’S LAIR

Claire’s Top 10 Looks from Outlander Ep. 207: FAITH

In Episode 207: FAITH, Caitriona Balfe's talent radiates even more than usual as Claire Elizabeth Beauchamp Randall Fraser. Sam Heughan makes a cameo appearance at the end (insert chuckle) so will have to wait his turn to take back over his reign of Top 30. It's either that or a list of Jamie's Top 2 – with and… Continue reading Claire’s Top 10 Looks from Outlander Ep. 207: FAITH

Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 206: BEST LAID SCHEMES

In Episode 206: BEST LAID SCHEMES, Sam Heughan's Jamie reaches across the spectrum of emotions – sharing his tender side with Claire (Caitriona Balfe), staring down the Comte (Stanley Weber) and finally letting loose his fury against Randall (Tobias Menzies). Sam and Jamie get quite a workout in this episode in so many ways . . . as does their hair. I'm happy… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 206: BEST LAID SCHEMES

Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 205: UNTIMELY RESURRECTION

In Episode 205: UNTIMELY RESURRECTION, Sam Heughan takes us back to serious Jamie. He has very little time for humor, being forced by the Prince to partner with St. Germain and broadsided by the return of Captain Randall. To top it all off, Claire makes a demand he never thought possible given his very recent experience. But he… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 205: UNTIMELY RESURRECTION

Jamie’s Top 36 Looks from Outlander Episode 204: LA DAME BLANCHE

Before we get started, I'd like to acknowledge James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser's 295th birthday today. As I have always favored mature Jamie, these excerpts from Diana Gabaldon's The Fiery Cross seem the most appropriate compilation of words to borrow for the occasion - an endearing and touching peek at Claire and Jamie on his big 5-0. Jamie… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 36 Looks from Outlander Episode 204: LA DAME BLANCHE

Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode 203: USEFUL OCCUPATIONS & DECEPTIONS

In Episode 203: USEFUL OCCUPATIONS AND DECEPTIONS, Sam Heughan's Jamie spends most of his time drinking, drinking then drinking some more. He's very isolated in this episode, single-handedly attempting to stop a large scale Jacobite invasion. What's most interesting about this episode (at least, to me) is Sam's political persona. We all revel in his charisma and… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode 203: USEFUL OCCUPATIONS & DECEPTIONS

Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode 202: NOT IN SCOTLAND ANYMORE

Episode 202: NOT IN SCOTLAND ANYMORE explodes with vibrancy, culture, intrigue, darkness and a lot more humor. My favorite scene involves Jamie running into his old crush, Annalise de Marillac, at court. Sam Heughan's expressions are priceless and jump from one hilarious face to the next. Personally, I think Murtagh steals the show. This is my favorite… Continue reading Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode 202: NOT IN SCOTLAND ANYMORE

Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode 201: THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY

Outlander Season 2 is in full swing. I finally managed to hobble together 30 Top Looks from Episode 201: THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY. Due to the darkish nature of the episode and the limited screen time in the eighteenth century, I had to fill in some spots with a few other characters. As the season progresses,… Continue reading Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode 201: THROUGH A GLASS, DARKLY

Jamie’s Top 30 Awkward Moments from #Outlander S1 Pt2

How's everyone surviving the long slump between Outlander seasons? I spent the past few months discovering new stories and fascinating characters by authors with beautiful, sometimes spine-tingling, imaginations. Here's a brief sampling of my summer findings. I kicked my reading frenzy off with American Sniper by Chris Kyle and Scott McEwen. It's an eye-opening account of war… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 30 Awkward Moments from #Outlander S1 Pt2
