This blog is dedicated to the fans who have waited 20 plus years to see Outlander come to the screen. I was privileged to see an advanced screening of episode one tonight and here are some of my observations.
- Faithful adaptation - You will not watch the show and wonder what they have done to you beloved novel. Pelican Brief and the Firm by John Grisham comes to mind, they bore no resemblance to the books and suffered greatly for their divergence from the source material. Outlander is faithful.
- Stunning Production - the light, the score, the filming, the acting, the editing, the authenticity - beyond my expectations!
- Characterization - spot on, true magic.
I find myself envious of the legions of fans who will experience Outlander for the first time and get to discover the series. For the devotee, you will not be disappointed!
