AAAAAAAAAAAA….so much excitement! A little backstory from Starz:
The “Outlander” series spans the genres of romance, science fiction, history, and adventure in one epic tale. It follows the story of Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743. Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now, Claire’s heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
Although that makes it sound way more “romance” than the novels really are, IMHO. I’d say they’re more historical adventure with a great romance to boot.
Did I mention it’s being adapted by Ronald D. Moore? He did some little known projects like “Battlestar Galactica”, “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: The Next Generation”. It also stars Tobias Menzies as Claire’s husband in 1945. I could run down a list of his work, but most recently we’d all recognize him from a very colorful wedding on “Game of Thrones”.
“Outlander” will air Summer 2014 on Starz and I cannot wait!!!!! You can join in on the fun at:

Of course, to tide you over, you can always read the fabulous series by Diana Gabaldon this is based on…
Just saying 😉
