Okay, so I’ve watched the first two episodes of Outlander despite never reading the books and knowing all about Diana Gabaldon’s nonsense regarding fan-fiction. Other than that, all I knew about the story was from that GIF set of Orange is the New Black that’s been floating around.
Caitriona Balfe as Claire is fantastic, but those voice-overs have got to go. We honestly don’t need insight into her thoughts and feelings when we can make an educated guess based on what we’re actually seeing.
I liked the transition from the 20th century to the 18th – no flashy special-effects, but just a shift from one period to the other. It’s smart to keep this story grounded in history rather than science-fiction.
For some reason Jamie reminds me of George of the Jungle. Not that they’re remotely similar in appearance, but I keep expecting a scene of women watching him train the horses shirtless while some Scottish guy comments: “what is it with lasses and horses?”
Too many historical films/shows skew too heavily in one direction or the other: everything is either dirty and miserable looking, or too pristine and pretty. Outlander hits that perfect note of realism and splendour that lets you enjoy the scenery without getting pulled out of the time period.
I’m afraid I can’t quite grasp the meaning behind having the same actor play both Randall and Frank. Is it like how Captain Hook and Mr Darling are usually played by the same person? Is it to subconsciously tell Claire that she shouldn’t return to her own time?
I already like Geillis Duncan, so hopefully she’ll be sticking around.
Would it have even been possible to make a show set in 18th century Scotland without Gary Lewis?
