      Really wonderful series! Amazed by how incredible this production is, the cast is spot on. I'm blown away, never thought an actor or actress could be found that I would appreciate as Claire and Jamie. Caitriona Balfe is brilliantly expressive and delivers Claire's wise cracks with sauce, hard to believe this incredibly talented actress has not been picked up by Hollywood sooner. She's also stunningly beautiful and has a presence that's perfect for the portrayal of our fearlessly strong Claire! Sam Heughan is big muscly and very handsome! His portrayal captures Jamie's leadership qualities, his humor and his gentleness. From Jamie's nervous finger tapping to Claire's glass face book readers will be thrilled to see how closely this series follows the books. Many if not most of the dialog comes straight out of the books. I RARELY like book adaptions but Ron Moore and crew have hit the ball out of the park with this one. I think most book readers and new fans a like will fall in love with the TV version of Claire and Jamie, I know I have.

      Fun Time Traveling Romance

      Overall, this is a great adaptation of the novel. It's very faithful to the novel. I just didn't like some of the characters' personalities as portrayed in the show (which were different in the book). For example, Jack Randall is presented an absolute, World War II-type of psychopath, which he's not in the book. In any case, though, the actors are all splendid- they definitely make the show a joy to watch. Catriona Balfe and Sam Heughan have a wonderful chemistry as the leads. Tobias Menzies does a good job at playing two very different characters. The music, costumes, sets, and scenery are great. The characters and story lines are well developed. I particularly love the inclusion of the Scottish Gaelic language. Parents should be aware that this is an adult show and has suggestive and some explicit material in it. Although this is not my favorite story, the actors and creators have made this an enjoyable show to watch. Can't wait for Volume 2. Highly recommended.

      I read and loved the Diana Gabaldon books and you can tell that she has a lot of influence in making the Starz TV series. Just like her books, I had a hard time just watching one episode at a time. Each episode ends with a cliff-hanger and there just is never a dull moment. The actors chosen to play the parts are doing an excellent job of staying true to the characters. Toby Menzies is amazing as both the abandoned 1945 husband and the evil 1743 British officer who takes pleasure in other people's pain. I just finished watching the 8th episode and can't wait for the next series to come out. Anyone interested in historicals, or even time-travel will love this story.

      Outlander masterfully blends fantasy (time travel) with historical fiction (the Jacobite revolt in 1743 Scotland). The series does very well in portraying mid-18th century Scotland by actually filming from a Scottish castle. Viewers should also appreciate the show producers' efforts in meticulously tracking period-appropriate dress and traditions. Discretion should be exercised for those under 18, however. The military conflict between the English and Scots brings with it some graphically violent scenes. But the series also gets into, at times, gratuitous intimate scenes. The last episode should be screened before showing it to others for an extended, non-consensual male-on-male scene.

      I had watched season 1 a year ago, and was looking forward to watching it again with my wife, who hadn't seen it OR season 3 of Poldark. We watched episode 1 of Poldark 3, and while it was good, it didn't grab me like seasons 1 and 2. So the next night I suggested episode one of Outlander. We love Scotland and Dr. Who, so I figured this was a no-brainer for her. Major binge-out! Three episodes the first night. My wife is hooked

      I have loved these books for years and was so excited, but a little worried, about seeing them on screen. My worries have been put to rest. They have done a great job. Costumes, cast, locations all exceeded my expectations. I didn't think I could love these stories more, but I do after watching them on DVD. I loved the extras on the DVD as well. The back story of production is very interesting. I only wish they would come out sooner on disk. The waiting now for Season One volume TWO is excruciating. I don't have cable so I'll just have to try to be patient. I will continue to recommend the books and now the DVD's to my friends.

      Exceptional Adaptation

      I usually am not a fan of movie or TV adaptations of my favorite books, because they are always lacking in detail and rarely ever accurate. Outlander however is an exceptional book to TV adaptation. The details and accuracy of the characters is outstanding and the content of the story is kept in tact throughout the series. This is one of my all time favorite book series and I was skeptical that there could ever be a movie or television show that would capture the book as well as it is written, but this TV series does exactly that. Absolutely can not wait for the second half of the season to be on DVD.

      Outlander S1 sets the stage for a rivetting series

      After the first eight episodes some viewers may be left scratching their head and saying "what, that's it?" But don't be quick to give up on this remarkable fantasy, sci-fi, romantic, dramatic adaptation of the book series. This is not the rabid, raw and unbridled type story as is Game of Thrones but instead a calmer, slowburn story telling with novelistic type narrative. The lavishly beautiful Scottish locations and authentic period piece details and outstanding performances make for an epic show. This blu-ray offers great video, audio and solid supllements. Highly Recomended.
