The third season of Outlander picks up right after Claire travels through the stones to return to her life in 1948. Now pregnant, she struggles with the fallout of her sudden reappearance and its effect on her marriage to her first husband, Frank. Meanwhile, in the 18th century, Jamie suffers from the aftermath of his doomed last stand at the historic battle of Culloden, as well as the loss of Claire. As the years pass, Jamie and Claire attempt to make lives apart from one another, each haunted by the memory of their lost love. Separated by continents and centuries, Claire and Jamie must find their way back to each other. As always, adversity, mystery and adventure await them, and the question remains: When they find each other, will they be the same people who parted at the standing stones all those years ago?

Sometimes the written word does not translate well to the screen. With large books (the only kind Diana Gabaldon knows how to write!) something will have to be cut or condensed in order to film it. Do I wish that Starz had an infinite budget to film the books in more detail? Sure! But as long as it takes to film what they do film, I do not think that wish is practical in any degree.
Starz works hard to stay true to the period and the characters. I am not disappointed but I remain grateful that I have the books to flush out anything that needs more detail.
Do not miss out on Season 3 because of the few who must criticize that the series is not the books. Enjoy the series for what it is. Enjoy the books for what they are. Together you will find joy!
I have only two criticisms and one recommendation:
Criticism: viewers have to shuffle discs to watch the extras or episodes. This is annoying. If I’m watching disc 1, and the episode or extra is listed on that disc, then when I select it, I shouldn’t see the pop-up “Insert Disc 2”.
Second criticism: All five discs are stacked on top of each other in the case like hot cakes rather than in their own sections securely in the case as in the previous two seasons.
Recommendation: Executive Producer Ronald Moore said often before introducing the deleted scenes that he cut them for time, continuity or pace. The deleted scenes are so good, I think he should rerelease all three seasons with the original air check of the episodes followed by the Director’s Cut of the same episode which would include the deleted scenes for each episode; as there are scenes in this season of episodes “All Debts Paid”, “A. Malcolm”, and “First Wife” which lend themselves nicely to the Director’s Cut suggestion.
With Director/Producers, there’s always the version they have to show (for considerations of time, continuity and pace) vs. the version they want to show (for considerations of creative license). Here, I think Ronald Moore can do both, especially with Season 3.
Otherwise, watching Outlander Season 3 via blu-ray format is incredible! The battle scenes at Culloden never looked so good! I love this show! Watching it never gets old—and wait until you see the Chemistry Test audition footage between Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe! It will knock you over!!
Is this a defect with disc 2 and will it be replaced?
Most other things were pretty true to the books, although that's not required. They are separate mediums with different objectives. It's easy to let the differences become important instead of just enjoying the shows.
The series was beautifully filmed, as always, and I love the attention to details in the clothing and furnishings through the progression of time in the series. Someone worked very hard to get the details accurate.
I will be watching this Season again and again, waiting for the next one to come out.
