Some Outlander Trivia
Sky Boat Song:
The song playing in the opening credits uses the melody of the Skye Boat Song, a song that describes the escape of Bonnie Prince Charlie from Uist to Skye after his defeat in the Battle of Culloden. Composer Bear McCreary adapted Robert Louis Stevenson's poem Sing Me A Song of Lad that is Gone to fit with Claire's time traveling journey.
Doune Castle was used as Castle Leoch. The castle is famous for being featured in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It was also used as Winterfell in Game of Thrones. The castle is located in the village of Doune, near Stirling.
Claire and Jamie arrive in France, hell-bent on infiltrating the Jacobite rebellion led by Prince Charles Stuart and stopping the battle of Culloden. With the help of Jamie’s cousin, they are thrown into the lavish world of French society, where intrigue and parties are abundant but political gain proves far less fruitful. Altering the course of history presents challenges that begin to weigh on the very fabric of their relationship – but, armed with the knowledge of what lies ahead, Claire and Jamie must race to prevent a doomed Highland uprising and the extinction of Scottish life as they know it.

Adore Sam Heughan who captures the balance of Jamie's character so well - he adds forward movement and energy to every scene he is in - he is a catalyst in every way and it is so fun to watch a man and plot of action. He shows the duality of what it is to be human - weak from abuse at some moments while strong enough to take on a room of armed men in others. He captures the ever attractive balance of a man who can remain thoughtful, strategic and calm in the face of hysteria and a man who can start and end the same fight whenever needed. Caitriona Balfe has portrayed the building strength of Claire's character in an incredibly nuanced way. This season allows for that since it centers much more on intrigue than violence. She brings the viewer into the world so fully that when the contrast with the modern era comes, its outright jarring. The gradations of what it means to be female come through in her work and her role beautifully. Tobias Menzies prompts a visceral response no matter his scene - his ability to authentically make Jack Randall take serious and wild emotional jumps is unparalleled, as is his ability to speak volumes with slight glances is delicious. The supporting cast is wonderful but a special note goes out to Duncan Lacroix who grounds Jamie and Claire in their home culture - he embodies the genuineness and loyalty and love that underlies true friendship - a demonstration of the clan culture in the face of aristocratic intrigue. Looking forward to the next seasons!!!
I've read the whole series of books.
With luck, the producers will keep this series going through the entire story.
I just hope the viewers will stick with this season because it is somewhat political compared to Outlander One.
Dragonfly in Amber leads into the most amazing story I've ever read. So historically accurate and full of twists and turns.
Reading the books makes one understand and appreciate the T.V. series that much more.
Bringing those characters to life.
The series has brought back into demand the books after all these years.
Some deviations in plot points are necessary whenever books are made into movies, and those made so far for this series have been thoughtfully written. The producers and writers were most wise to bring in Ms. Gabaldon as a consultant (and guest actress), as the production shows great respect for the source material. I am looking forward to Season 3, as well as any future books about the main characters.

the actors are performing wonderfully, the dedication to details and authenticity in costumes and sites is commendable.
I've watched the whole series several times and each time I'd notice something new I didn't pay enough attention before.
