If you’ve never had the chance to watch Outlander, Starz is giving you a chance to catch up before the second season begins. After April 9, you’ll need a Starz subscription or to buy the series on DVD/streaming media (currently about $40).
This Doctor Who-inspired romance series begins in 1945 with Claire and Frank Randall on a second honeymoon in Inverness, Scotland. Claire is inadvertently plunged two hundred years back in time, where she meets danger, romance, and a lot of Scottish accents. If you like costume dramas, try the first episode and see what you think.
This is not kid-friendly material. Outlander has graphic violence, explicit language, and steamy sex scenes with nudity.
There are 16 episodes of a little over an hour each, and you only have until April 9th to watch this for free, so budget your time accordingly.
The second season picks up with Claire and Jamie’s adventures in France.
