I did not realize that the Outlander novels and series have such a strong male following. I am curious about this. While I won’t be able to get my husband to read Outlander (he reads primarily biographies), I did get him to watch the first several episodes. I have not given him any details abut the shows and I don’t answer any of his question. I am going to share his rambling thoughts in case this may be of interest to you and would love to hear more thoughts from men regarding the books/series. Please don’t judge him…he is a pretty basic guy. Here goes: (” I like the shows. Episode 1 – Excellent cast/acting. I was impressed with the Reverend’s housekeeper. She did a great job. The scene where Frank walks back to the B&B and sees the man vanish was creepy and I wondered if this was going to be a gory scene. Episode 2&3 – Jesus, what happened to Jamie’s back? Mrs. Fitz reminds me of your mom. While Colum and Dougal are trying to figure out who Claire is, they have given her two bodyguards. Doesn’t she realize this? Her medical skills set her apart. I enjoyed the bread toss to Claire from Column’s wife. It set the tone…we are down to earth so don’t act all high and mighty. Can you imagine having your daughter whipped in public? What an ass. I did fall asleep during some of this episode but we were out late last night. Episode 4 – Best episode so far. The Gathering seemed authentic and I liked the history and military aspects. I said outloud before Jamie did that Claire was never going to escape the castle. Of course, there were sentries in the woods. Jamie is boyish and not quite up to Dougal’s experience but he has to step up and protect Claire because her two bodyguards are incompetent. Dougal has the burden of being responsible for many lives and he seems to do this well. Yes I think Claire, Geillis and Laoghaire are really attractive. Yes I can see this is a love story. It reminds me of Sting’s, Fortress Around Your Heart. I’ll watch the rest of the episodes with you”) 🙂
