I’m so perplexed why people would be so mean to the TV cast and crew. They clearly worked so hard on season 1. Even if you don’t like their artistic choices, you can be respectful. I just don’t get why, in a world so full of angst and sadness, we can’t all find the space to be kind. Call me naive, perhaps. But life is too precious and short to be caught up in anger.

I agree wholeheartedly that it’s possible to love the show and the books, and, to that end, I wrote about just that topic here: It’s called “Why Book to Screen Adaptations Can be Great, or What I Learned from Watching Outlander” – http://redshuttersblog.com/2015/05/outlander.html.
I welcome your thoughts. Thanks, all.
