I feel should really review this trailer for the new series of Outlander (2014). This as over the weekend, a staggering 176 of you read my Outlander review on the first series of this TV phenomenon alone. It’s just over 10 days until Outlander returns for some of you (but probably not in Finland for a while as Finnish subtitles to be made etc).
I assume many of you will be feverishly shouting Jamie in your sleep. This in anticipation of what’s next for the kilted wonder and his lassie. I haven’t read the books, so this review only covers what this trailer above tells us, please don’t add any spoilers, as I am sure not the only one.
So the Frasers are returning, Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Claire (Caitriona Balfe), the world’s most loved up TV couple. This since Mr and Mrs Jonathan Hart from Hart to Hart (1979-) in the 80s.
Loved up, pregnant Claire has confirmed that she was alive from 1918 onwards to Jamie’s
dad godfather and right-hand man. For the benefit of the masses, he has written all the years down on paper to check it out it with her. She confirms this with him agreeing she knows when “things will happen” and how they will turn out. Thus recapping to regulars and aiding the ignorant. That is those of you who were still in caves during the first series. Or you only switched on when Jamie took off his kilt shirt or Claire showed her boobs.
Claire is a time traveller with a great knowledge of Scottish history especially Culloden, which is useful for all concerned. So we are darned lucky it wasn’t someone not so clued up on this period that shacked up with our Jamie then. Jamie says with Culloden happening. he’s going to make sure she’s OK (wee lamb). This probably the stupidest man ever as surely Claire should tell this to him, after all, she read the History books.
Claire will know the best places to go unless she has to nip into the future to consult a few more relevant history books. However, with Jamie by her side, she is all set to help her rewrite history and stop Culloden. The wee poppet, Jamie always wants to be with Claire…tip watch Somewhere in Time (1980).
There are lots of scenes where Jamie is taking his shirt off or has no shirt, for much of this trailer for the benefit of us girlies. Because 8/10 men don’t watch Outlander unless forced to and even then it’s just a cursory glance in those show all love scenes. Then the final bombshell, we see Frank (Tobias Menzies) – Claire’s other husband – back in the future and so is Claire…WTF, if this is all a dream I want my time back… Now, where are the darn stones?
