    It’s not just well-written and lovely to look at. It’s downright immersive. ... Outlander feels important--even moreso in its second season.

    The marvelously textured performances and addictive narrative remain the most compelling reasons to watch Outlander.

    It’s a smart wartime drama that’s gripping precisely because it takes sex so seriously, treating it as life’s deepest joy and its most terrifying risk, as dramatic as any act of violence.

    Clad in the silks and satins of 1700s France, Outlander‘s Jamie and Claire Fraser clean up nicely. What a relief, then, that the Starz series does, too, delivering a second season that explores their complicated relationship amid a historical plot with a looming, deadly deadline.

    Outlander’s appeal remains focused on the interplay between Claire and Jamie, a union of two very different people joined in mutual attraction, lust, and a meeting of the minds. No matter what country they’re in, they’re the duo that’s the twosome with the mostest.

    here are odd time jumps and plot movements here and there that really prove how much that voiceover narration from Claire is really needed. Not all of these are good things. ... They are not deal-breakers, exactly, but it will be interesting to see if season two can match (or exceed) the lofty achievements of season one. Perhaps the important thing to know is, despite these shifts, Outlander remains as sweeping and addictive as ever, which goes a long way.

    Interesting? Yes. But fitfully involving. The intrigues are small, slow-moving, and fuzzy.

I love the plotline, the acting, the costumes and ambiance. Season 1 was probably a bit faster paced in the beginning compared to S2, the parts in France involve little more drama than action, but the plot-lines are interesting and the characters along with their intrigue pull you in. The chemistry between Claire and Jamie doesn't get old and even a guy like me who likes blood and gore more than lovey-dovey scenes was very entertained. This isn't a show for the squeamish, with incredibly close up shots of medical procedures and violence. Then again, you're grown-ups, not wee bairns are you? Expand

    Amazing acting from the two leads. Their chemistry and romance is the best ever seen on TV in my opinion. The season finale broke me.

    I loved season 1 and really anticipated season 2 however, I have to say I'm quite disappointed. Season 2 is memorable mainly for Claire's ****I loved season 1 and really anticipated season 2 however, I have to say I'm quite disappointed. Season 2 is memorable mainly for Claire's **** moments, a never ending string of tears, irrational outbursts and odd behaviour from a WW2 battle hardened veteran in the run up to the war scenes. It's very soap operaish and quite a turn off. The screen time all this crap takes really inhibits growth of the story.

    The birth/dead baby scenes are a case in point, woefully done. First off, why is there so much blood? I've only been present at 4 births and I have never seen a doctor, or anyone else, covered in blood up to their elbows. There was no que that the birth was problematic but she appears to have had the baby and then fallen into some sort of coma and awakens into another hysterical scene. We are talking about a nurse who has served in WW2, the death of the baby, though lamentable, is something that trained nurses of the period would not be unfamiliar with.

    Far to much melodramatic BS to make this the story it should be, it was hard to sit through many of the episodes.
