Hello fellow Outlander fans,
Just noticed there isn't a thread for the upcoming TV series and thought I would remedy this. No particular form or shape re discussion, just dive :)
I am just a wee bit excited about Outlander hitting our screens next year and have started following the production news with increasing fangirl glee.
Off the top of my head:
1. Are you excited to see this series come to our screens?
2. What do you think of the casting so far?
3. What are you most looking forward to seeing from the book?
4. Favourite character(s)?
To get the ball rolling:
1. So excited, especially with Ron Moore on board. I loved his re-imagining of BattleStar Galactica (though he has been at pains to emphasise that his approach isn't a reimagining of DG's books, but a faithful transition to screen). I think the spirit of the books (oh True Blood how you broke my heart) is in safe hands. Plus his wife is a major fan so he's got added incentive right there ;)
2. I think they've got the casting spot on. I had some initial concerns over Jamie - he wasn't exactly what I had in my head when reading the books - but seeing some video of the NYCC Outlander discussions (they showed some behind the scenes production stuff and Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) I think he's right on the money. Catriona Balfe also looks like a great choice for Claire.
3. So many things, but a few scenes stand out: Claire going through the stones and encountering Black Jack Randall, Jamie and Claire's wedding night, Wentworth Prison scene....to name a few
4. Claire and Jamie of course. Also am intrigued to see how Tobias Maguire play's both Frank and BJR
Anyway, enough of my rambling.....anyone else?
