      I agree. I love Outlander but a 6 month break in the middle of a season is ridiculous !
      Many shows have a mid season break but it’s usually somewhere between 8 to 12 weeks NEVER 6 months .
      I’m afraid to ask how long the break between seasons 1& 2 of Outlander will be.

    Great show deserves good ratings, this and Power are appointment TV! There should not be separated arc in season as other commenter said!

    Outlander is by far the most outstanding series on television. Sam Heughan, Cat Balfe and the entire cast are brilliant in their roles. Ron Moore has “hit this one out of the park” for a truly great work of art. Great acting, directing, writing, sound track, costumes, cinematography all combine to make this epic entertainment on such a grand scale. Outlander is a Perfect 10. I really enjoyed “Jaime’s” narration – hope to see Sam Heughan’s voice over more in future episodes or alternating with Cat Balfe.

    If you cannot get enough of Sam Heughan view “Emulsion” an independent film he stars in from the United Kingdom. I ordered the DVD from the UK – it is an outstanding film.
    Sam Heughan is a great actor with an incredible range – Emulsion is a film you will watch over and over just to pick up some of the subtle details. True actors speak so much emotion in their eyes and the film “Emulsion” is a great example of independent film making at it’s best.
