The night was Christmas Eve. The Outlander Podcast was playing, executive producers giving their take on the episode as it ran on the tv. I’d run through episodes 7, 8, 9 and 10 and happened to see that at 11am on Christmas Day, STARZ would be playing a marathon of the entire third season.
Like the last puzzle piece it fit perfectly in time. The third season of Outlander hadn’t finished too long ago on TV but it was such a whirlwind and so tense it wasn’t possible to appreciate all the beautiful imagery upon first or second viewing. And even the podcast, bringing production, post production and crafts discussion into light was sometimes a distraction from the massive sets and heart wrenching dialogue.
So I watched it a third time, 1 1/2 times of which were within the last 2 days. And still it had me on the edge of my seat, as if I hadn’t seen the exact scene 12 hours before. Each episode was beautiful and truly lived up to the book named “Voyager.”
