STARZ premiere day is here!!



So here we are. <g>  The STARZ premiere day has finally arrived!!

HUGE congratulations to Diana Gabaldon, Ron Moore, Sam, Caitriona, and the rest of the cast and crew!!



Part of me still can't quite believe this is really happening.  Does anybody else understand what I mean?  We've waited for this for sooooooo long, talked about it, argued the pros and cons, debated casting ad nauseam, watched this production evolve gradually from the first announcement all the way through the filming and the world premiere....and yet it still feels more than a bit surreal to me, that I can turn on the TV and see the story of OUTLANDER come to life before my eyes.



To Diana Gabaldon:  I can't even begin to imagine what you must be feeling today.  Congratulations, and may the series continue for a long, long time! <g>

Hello Karen,

I can only imagine what this is like for you and other long time fans of the books!

I must say the marketing team did a brilliant job of promoting the series on STARZ like snagging the cover of TV Guide the week of the premiere and posting videos with the actors teaching us how to pronounce the Gaelic words etc.

Wouldn't it be great if they aired the first 2 episodes back to back tonight as most fans would have already seen the first spisode online last week. I wonder if there'll be any extras on the STARZ premiere?

Cheers....Lesharon

My husband made me wait all week for the first episode, instead of downloading it. He claimed it was an exercise in self-discipline. He will be joining me tonight; then my friends without STARZ will come over during the week and I'll watch it again with them -- if not before. Thank you Diana and Outlander team for this huge treat.

Now having watched it twice - need I say why - I noticed something you didn't mention in your spoiler blog last week, Karen. After Claire dresses Jamie's wound and they remount, Dougal rides around behind Jamie and Claire, and Jamie watches him from the corner of his eye. Only those who have read the books know that he never trusts Dougal, and why

Why, I keep wondering does Sam say 'Plaad' instead of plaid? Also, I keep correcting the way Cait says 'Jesus H.Roosevelt Christ' in my head after years of hearing Davina's narration!

Otherwise, well done! Claire has come to life for me. I can't wait for next week!

I am in awe of the Frank/Black Jack similarities and differences. Wonderful acting
