I have loved this series and read and re-read it so many times. Finally, a tv miniseries is soon to be released! I hope it's not disappointing! It's the chance you take when your imagination is faced with someone's reality! Any other and out there?

The first show airs on August 9 on the Starz network. I'm not certain as to what channel(s) that is? I saw an interview with Diana Gabaldon and several actors that have been cast in the leading roles. I'm not sure that they got Jamie quite right, but we'll see!

I've seen the pictures of the cast and the character potraying Jamie looks pretty good to me.

I only started reading these books a few years ago because the first one was a Kindle Freebie the week I got my first Kindle.

I no longer have cable tv so I will have to find another way to watch it. Maybe it will be on Netflix or Prime.

Starz is a pay channel like HBO/Showtime

peachy .... do you have a fire? If so... DroidTV may be getting it they have gotten other Starz shows (which are really good)

I do have DroidTV. Will have to remember to check with them later.

That pic of Jamie and Claire on a horse together is basically the hottest thing ever. IMO.

They definitely look good together! They are both Irish actors, I believe. So the accents and coloring are natural - although Sam (Jamie) is blonde. I can't wait to see who else is cast.

There's a few other pictures of them looking at each other that make me melt.

I just don't look forward to seeing the violent scenes. Will just have to have my finger on the fast forward button.

Sam is actually Scottish (apropos), Catriona is Irish. ^_^

That's funny....Diana Gabaldon said-in the interview I saw where they introduced the actors who play Claire and Jamie- she most looks forward to seeing the depiction of the beating and rape of Jamie at the hands of BlackJack Randall. While it's an important part of Jamie's character, I do hope that they deal with it gently. I wouldn't want it to overpower the story.

The cast is at Comic Con right now.

I saw him in an interview with Starz... He was pronouncing some of the common Gaelic phrases that Jamie uses in the book. They sound better than I imagined!

I couldn't even read the whole scene. Seeing it on screen would give me nightmares for years.

I'm assuming you have to pay for DroidTV, right?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 24, 2014 2:19:23 PM PDT
yes, you do ..... it is an app for fires/android devices .... you can even now stream via a couple things (roku?) .... great great great app!!

Herself has been heavily involved in the making of this series, and seems happy with the portrayals. So I have a lot of faith that it's going to be awesome!

I am in UK and don't know when it will be showed have seen the clips and think that Jamie seems right for the part Claire sounds really posh though it will be interesting to hear her swear as Claire has colourful vocabulary.

There's also some youtube stuff that you can find.

Honestly, I get chills when I watch the trailers. It's going to be amazingly true to the spirit of the book, I think.

I haz faith. ^_~

I love the how to speak Outlander videos they've been putting up on FB.

Does anyone know how many episodes this is? I don't bother with the premium channels via Comcast/Xfinity, but is it more cost-effective to pop for an additional $10/month for Starz, or pay per episode. I am such a newb with all this, I usually just watch Judge Judy and the Food Channel.

Apparently its sixteen episodes but its being split eight episodes this year and the rest early next year.
