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.
There is one part of the series that I could not watch.. so I fast forwarded through that. I do not want to say what it was, because I do not want to spoil the series. But, since I read the book, and it disturbed me when I read it... I knew to hit the fast forward button on the remote.
No, seriously, this is not a show for young kids or even your teenagers... but I am loving the series... not only for the story line of a book I loved, but also because the script was well written and the filming, music, etc... are high quality. It's a great series to watch with your hubbie snuggled in bed with the kids in another room fast asleep.
