All things Outlander (the TV series)January 5, 2017 at 12:45 pm #3635
I know they are still filming, but I can’t waiiiiiitttt!!
Have been thinking…I am really curious where they will film the American bits in the future seasons? It will be so weird not to have the American parts filmed in America.January 5, 2017 at 1:43 pm #3636
They should be filmed in California. I would SOOOOO stalk Sam all over California if that were the case. 🙂January 6, 2017 at 8:52 am #3649
LOL! That would be awesome! The area of North Carolina where the Ridge is located is not too far from here. It actually looks a lot like the Highlands there, and there is a lot of Scottish ancestry there. They do big Highland games every year. I really hope they film it in that actual location. In reality, I’m sure they’ll film it somewhere totally bizarre. I don’t see them bringing production to the U.S. But, I have the same question for the Revolutionary War era cities in the book too. What could stand in for Boston or Philly? That would be so weird if they didn’t actually film here in the U.S. They better up their budget for some dang good CGI.
I can’t wait to see the South Africa locations standing in for the Jamaica scenes. Those scenes with Geillis were some of the hardest in the book for me to imagine, so I’m looking forward to seeing it brought to life.August 29, 2017 at 6:01 am #4287
So, what is with all the fan drama about the print-shop scene/reunion? These people need to take a chill pill. My goodness. I guess after they saw a bit of script, and a clip, they were nervous that it wouldn’t be done right. So they’ve been whining (or should I say “whinging”? 🙂 ) about it. I am not worried about it. Hell, I’m just happy the dang show is coming back on. The show really hasn’t let me down at all so far, so I don’t think it’s about to start now with this one scene. For the most part, the show has interpreted the book fairly well. Considering how massive, expansive, and pedantic the book is too. I’m looking forward to the scene, and it is one of my faves in Voyager. But, honestly, it’s not the most vital scene to me anyway. There were a few scenes in the the 1st and 2nd book that I like a lot more. The show did pretty well with all of them. The only scene that I’ve been pretty disappointed in was the Jamie healing in the hot water spring/cave thing. That was omitted completely in favor of having that all go down in the monk’s abbey, so I was kind of disappointed in that. I am disappointed that the Caribbean scenes were not shot in the Caribbean. I understand why, but that is too bad. I still can’t wait to see what they are going to use for the North Carolina mountains and for Philadelphia eventually.August 30, 2017 at 10:29 am #4290
I had read an article about why they didn’t film the cave scene – logistics with the water and all. I don’t really recall. The scene I was disappointed in was in Season 1 when he returned her to the stones to go back to Frank. I don’t think they did a good job of conveying how torn Claire was and that when she chose Jamie, she truly chose Jamie. It felt too superficial and didn’t dig as deep as I would have liked into the depth of that decision.
I haven’t read any of the fan commentary – this fanbase is pretty rabid so I stay away as much as possible. lolAugust 30, 2017 at 10:30 am #4291
I’m SOOOO excited we get to watch an episode together while you’re here! 🙂September 1, 2017 at 9:31 am #4329
Me too! It will be so fun!!
Oh yeah, some of the fans are cray cray. I’ve been mostly happy with the show, so I don’t have too many ‘complaints’ per se, just some preferences here & there.
Totally agree with you about when Claire went back to the stones to decide her fate. I am re-watching all the eppies now, and in the 1st eppy of season 2, they show a lot of Claire feeling torn about the Jamie/Frank thing. But too late, cuz she’s already forward in time. She tells Frank a bunch of times “I love him. I was his wife. I was with him. Etc.” And when Frank tries to persuade her to stay, she spends a good bit of that episode torn between the two. But it lacks the urgency of her deciding when she’s back at the stones and then goes back to Jamie. (And then in that same eppy, Tobias goes all Jack Randall and beats the crap out of the garden shed haha!)
Similar to what you were saying, I felt like the Jamie/Claire goodbye episode in season 2 where Claire goes forward in time was kind of rushed too. I kind of liked how you could feel the rushing, like she had a to make a super hard decision super fast. But, then once they cut out the carving of the initials in their hand, I was bummed and it was a buzzkill. They should have done it! The showrunners gave reasons why they didn’t do it, like the cave, but I think they could have made it work. Heck, I would have volunteered my hand for a hand stunt double shot. Carve a J in it, I don’t care! Haha!September 11, 2017 at 9:03 am #4345
I really liked first eppy of season 3! I thought it was good. It must be so hard to translate 2 main stories in 2 time periods, but I thought it was well done. Can’t wait for the reunion! Really enjoyed seeing Jamie. Sam did a great job. I will enjoy Tobias while I can. And I swear, if they followed the book and killed Murtagh, I’m going to have a hard time with that. I really want to see him stay alive!December 11, 2017 at 10:52 am #4599
Awww, another season over. I will say that the finale was one of my least favorite yet. I mean, I can suspend belief for a fictional story and it doesn’t take much to please me but I felt like the director’s were trying way to hard to be artsy or trendy. The literal eye of the storm? Really? The waves were raging one minute yet Jamie managed to find Claire in those rough seas – then end up in the calm eye of the storm. I can’t recall but was that all in the book?
30 minutes in and the most dramatic scene was over. I kept thinking “wow, that was a fast hour!” I’ll miss Lotte though, such a great actress.
I did love the little Claire and jamie frolicking. Yummy yummy yummy.
