Two episodes down, twenty-seven to go. Outlander Episode 102: CASTLE LEOCH reduxed on Friday, March 10th in the U.S. only. But just because other countries aren’t reduxing the show doesn’t mean you can’t all follow along with Jamie and Claire’s helpful tips. Up until the very end, Claire still thinks she’s going to make a clean get away, rush back to the stones and return to Frank’s loving arms all in time for dinner. Her stop in Jamieville hasn’t hit home yet though she doesn’t completely hate the detour whenever they’re alone.
You may or may not have heard, Starz is reduxing the Outlander series from the very beginning – one episode every Friday from March 3rd up to September 15th. Not to spread any unconfirmed rumors (or maybe I am because I’m about to), the hopeful assumption is Season 3 may begin on either Saturday, September 16th, or Sunday, the 17th, right after the Season 2 redux ends. And that’s all I’m gonna say about that!
I woke up this morning and started my day – took Biscuit for a walk, cleaned the cat box, prepared Biscuit’s breakfast then my own. Animals first. Always first. My cat Susie eats at odd times throughout the day, but Biscuit won’t eat unless I’m in the room. If I put his bowl down and go to another room to do something, I turn around, and ‘boom!’ – he’s right there behind me. Back we go to the room where his bowl is. I wait for him to begin eating. He does. The treat in his bowl is usually enough to…
Four books walk into a bar. (Tell me if you’ve heard this one.) A Rom-Com, a Chick-Lit, a Vic-Lit and a YA. The Rom-Com has been telling jokes since they all packed into an Uber. Harback YA cracked a few, but they went over Rom-Com and Chick-Lit’s heads. Vic-Lit had simply smiled and shaken her head at all three of them, but she also did that eye-slit-look-to-the-side thing she learned from the YA novel in response to paperback Rom-Com and Chick-Lit pretending to get YA’s jokes.
I posted these words on Facebook earlier today. I encourage anyone not interested in climate change to stop reading and continue about your day . . . for as many days as you have left. (Yes, that’s a joke.) Cool. If you are still reading, thanks. I especially want to thank my international blog followers. Though you don’t live in the United States, this issue effects us all. Furthermore, I’m sorry for the disruption we’ve caused the entire world.
Happy New Year, everyone! Twenty-seventeen is certainly off to an interesting start. Given the unpalatable political climate hogging the airwaves and social media, I thought I would write about something positive and cheerful.
. . . Hillary because she is a woman. . . . Hillary because her last name is Clinton. . . . Hillary because she is a Democrat.
Outlander star Caitriona Balfe brought one home for the Outlander Starz team in the form of a British Academy of Film and Television Arts Best Television Actress Award on Sunday, 6 November 2016. That’s a mouthful to say which is why I shortened it to BAFTA for the BALFE!
In Episode 212: THE HAIL MARY, Jamie strives and fails to save the Jacobites from their doomed ending on Culloden Moor. Colum drops in to make a deathbed request which finally puts Dougal in his place and raises Jamie up higher than I think he cares to be. While Jamie deals with his uncles and struggles with the war council bumbling, Claire faces off with Jonathan Randall for the last time. As in Ep. 106: THE GARRISON COMMANDER, Black Jack’s role is expanded upon. I’ll take all the Black Jack I can get, so me likey. However, his final farewell to his…
Episode 211: VENGEANCE IS MINE is a riveting and satisfying chapter in the story of Jamie and Claire. There’s an edge of peril throughout this episode – from the generals abandoning their Prince, to the shootout with the British and the subsequent standoff, up to Claire’s menacing clash with the Duke of Sandringham.
