From a technical standpoint, the history and geographical beauty of Scotland is nothing less than another character that does not appear in the list of credits. The acting is truly the best I have ever seen. It was intensely done, sometimes funny, sometimes painful, I could see nothing of the actors in the characters. The characters were simply their own beings, as if they were truly living individuals. Always, adding to the beauty of Scotland, the joy of love, the intensity of a whole range of emotions, is the amazing music of Bear McCreary, surely one of the most talented people in the industry. Outlander is the best thing I have ever watched and I am looking forward to Season Two more than I can say.
I admitted to my obsessive behavior toward all things Outlander. YES, I'm prejudiced. I began reading the Outlander series 1 1/2 decades ago. Now I own all books in hardcover, first editions, signed by the author. This DVD series holds to the great adventure style of the books. The books are 800 to over 1000 pages each, so plenty of material to continue DVDs for decades, beyond my lifetime, unfortunately.
In Volume 2, Caitriona Balfe continues as Claire, Sam Heughan as Jamie, tobias Menzies plays Frank Randall (a richer role than the book, actually), and the rest of the cast is just as suburb. I had my own image of Jamie & Clair from the novels, and the film stars are not the same, but they are very, very good. Cinematography, writing, costuming, props, choreography, is perfection, even down to what is NOT under the kilts. Top notch, as I knew it would be. Diana Gabaldon would allow nothing less.
Yep, this is a classic story in both book and film, you can bet your broadsword on it.

Reviewer purchased Season 1-Volume 1 on amazon and;
pre-ordered Season 1-Volume 2 DVD prior to review.
So it's a great series. However, be warned: there is some level 11 horrible rape/torture in the last part of this season. I generally do not have a problem with dramatic depictions of sex, murder or rape. Horrible events are a large part of what connects an audience to dramatic characters and dramatic stories. But I think either the original author, or the writers for the show went a little crazy here. There was a little gore to the torture part, and the depiction of rape was not overly graphic in the sexual sense... but the level of depravity of the torture/rape stuff, and that they decided to drag it out so long in the telling of this story.
If you are sensitive to this sort of thing you should definitely steer clear. I am not very sensitive to this stuff at all in fiction, but how they portrayed it was pretty disturbing even for me.
