Vikings and Game of Thrones are marketed toward male audiences. As Outlander is in the “romance” category they’ll market it toward females and that means a lot of the male lead. I’d like to see more of Ms. Balfe as she carries the show, frankly.

We are human and we like to look at pretty people. And we can do that and still appreciate the acting work that goes with it, along with all the other craft work on the show.

I totally agree, Cynthia. The discussion was started because of fan behavior toward Mr. Heughan, and I don’t think it’s intended to be a censor or critique of the show itself. I like the sexiness of it all, too.
