    Hi guys this is my first thread post on here.

    so ill start off by saying hey! ha.

    anyway so yeah...ive only just started watching Outlander recently and ive binge watched up to the current episode in season 2.

    does anyone else watch it? what are you true feelings and thoughts about the show?

    Ive got to admit...i love it. The romance and the way of life in the 1700's appeals to me very much. If im being honest i wish i was born in that era. Where every day life hinged on honour and abiding by the old laws of the day. I dont know what it is but the show has drawn me in....not only as a Scottish guy, but as a hobbie historian. I will definitely brushing up on my jacobite history!

    oh and theres loads of boobs and sex in it too lol

    I have considered it. You arent finding it too romance/female orientated?

    Watching it is a bit of a guilty secret as it goes a bit Mill and Boon at times, but really enjoyed it so far.

    I am an avid watcher of Outlander. It is such an amazing programme. Mystery, romance, sorcery and time travel. I also find that they tackle hard subjects brilliantly such as male rape and misscarriages. I can't wait for Sunday's since I can watch it on Amazon prime. I have watched it since the off.

    I don't know how I feel about the fact that we know the story ends back in the 1900's with her getting back with Frank.....sort of ruins it for me a little....
