Diana's comments about the split season



Diana Gabaldon made some interesting comments on Compuserve yesterday about the decision by STARZ to split the first season of the OUTLANDER TV series in half, with a hiatus of at least three months between episodes 8 and 9.

What Diana said makes a lot of sense to me, and I would encourage all of you to read the whole post.

Thanks, as always, for sharing. While personally disappointed at not having more, more, more Outlander, it's certainly understandable that there is so much that goes into the production of a show like this. Anyone up in arms about it is just silly, imo.

This seems consistent with most shows these days. I'm getting STARZ just to watch Outlander though so from a financial point of view, it's disappointing as I wasn't planning on keeping STARZ year round to watch it. I'm actually thinking about cancelling cable as I only seem to have it to be able to watch shows such as Game of Thrones and now Outlander. I wish their were other platforms to view them. I'm probably going to watch season 1, then cancel cable and wait for DVDs/Streaming for the following seasons.

Thanks for sharing this info Karen. I want more so I can take a wee bit later than expected. Gee whiz, we will wait four years for book! Keep up the good work. Thinking and praying for you and your family.

As always, Diana is the voice of calm reason. I, for one, actually look forward to the hiatus as it will afford me ample time to re-watch the first 8 episodes multiple times! :)

Where is the link to it, or how can I find it? I'm not familiar with Compuserve.

I'll be able to save some money by dropping Starz for three months (right around Christmas).That will help my budget.
