Outlander is back....and available

Back in September, I posted about the book/tv series Outlander. At the time, I was only able to view the first three episodes of it. I borrowed the book and read through all 600+ pages in a matter of days.

I've been waiting patiently for the series to appear on DVD via Netflix since then and the first two discs arrived in my mail last Friday.

I rewatched the first three eps and proceeded eagerly through the next five. Sunday ended up rainy so no lawn mowing. What better way to spend and dreary drippy day than watching a visually stunning tv show. The actors are pretty too.

Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall and Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser.

I have to say they couldn't have arrived at a better time as all my other shows have wound to a close and I needed something new to tease and teach the muse.

So it's the epic tale of a woman sucked two hundred years into the past through standing stones in Scotland while on her second honeymoon following the close of WWII. She must learn to navigate life in the Scottish Highlands in the 18th century while being suspected of being an English spy.

Hope your weekend was as relaxing and enjoyable as mine!

No. I've got book two on hold at the library. Waiting for notification that it's available. Two other patrons ahead of me!
