BAFTA for the BALFE!

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! I am thrilled to join Caitriona and Outlander… Continue reading BAFTA for the BALFE!

Jamie’s Top 20 Looks from Outlander Ep. 211: VENGEANCE IS MINE

Episode 211: VENGEANCE IS MINE is a riveting and satisfying chapter in the story of Jamie and Claire.

This is a gritty, bloodthirsty episode with our first up close and personal look at Highlander warfare, tempered with moments of combat companionship. With every episode, Sam Heughan's man-no-longer-a-lad grows more mature, commanding, responsible, charming and especially irresistible. This episode is particularly engaging… Continue reading Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Ep. 210: PRESTONPANS

A True Fan’s Review of Outlander Ep. 209: JE SUIS PREST

During my viewing of Episode 209: JE SUIS PREST, my primary reaction during the entire 55 minutes and 24 seconds was: This is OUTLANDER. While Season 1 focused on and built up toward a personal climax between Jamie and Claire (no pun intended), Season 2 is all about the future of Scotland as we approach (sniff sniff)… Continue reading A True Fan’s Review of Outlander Ep. 209: JE SUIS PREST

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

A True Fan’s Review of Outlander Ep. 207: FAITH

In Outlander Episode 207: FAITH, Caitriona Balfe does all the heavy lifting while Sam Heughan is off growing a Gettysburg beard. (If you've seen the 1993 film of which I speak, you know what I mean. If you haven't, you must. It's a great film based on the even better Pulitzer Prize-winning classic Civil War novel: The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. Check out both… Continue reading A True Fan’s Review of Outlander Ep. 207: FAITH
