I have always had a fondness for history. Oddly enough, I was never particularly into historical fiction until I read Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Gabaldon’s writing style is so captivating that you’re instantly swept into Claire Randall’s double life. She is living her life as a happily married British army nurse during 1945 until she inadvertently time travels to the 18th century, capturing the interest of Jamie, a Scottish warrior. Outlander is an eclectic mixture of history, romance, suspense, and science fiction. It is almost a genre of its own, as it has a unique plot. No surprise this book series has built a solid legion of fans over the years, and no surprise that it is finally being made into a TV show! Outlander, the TV show, will debut on Saturday, August 9th, at 9 PM ET/PT on Starz.

Time Warner Cable gave me the opportunity to have a sneak peek of the first two episodes from the first season of 16 episodes. Not only the episodes perfectly depict the book series, but I was in awe of the spot on acting and scenic shots of the Scottish countryside. I eagerly await the third episode!
