    These people have done Gabaldons stories RIGHT! From the writing, producing, sets,clothes, music and acting…it is so genuine and breath taking. Very easy to become as addicted to these shows as the original books. BRAVO ALL THE WAY AROUND. Lets hope the cost does not become prohibitive.

    One of the best shows on TV, not a surprise.

    I’m so glad to hear this. As a devoted fan of the books, I’m really happy with the way they’ve translated to TV to date. Season 2 opening was terrific. Tobias Menzies was so great in this episode.

    When can we purchase season 2 on DVD?

    I think I might be in the minority, but I thought the first ep was a little weak. Just a little clunky directing-wise and I’m (as a book reader) questioning some of the narrative choices they made. Hopefully it solidifies quickly, there is a lot of ground to cover.

    Great start for season 2. Loved the way they transisoned from Frank to Jamie . Genius Ronald D Moore. Can’t wait for Saturday!
