A belated update from August about what I'm currently listening to, reading, and watching!
The thing about the book Outlander is that there are so many subplots that the show version can, at times, feel disconnected from itself. Much like Jamie and Claire struggle to stay on the same page, the historical events and plots and external issues sometimes seem pull away from the central characters' relationship and journey.

I've had several reactions after seeing it, and have let those feelings percolate over the week, and also read various reaction pieces about it, and talked to some of you about it. Here, now, are a collection of my thoughts, other … Continue reading Ep. Review: Outlander 2.1 “Through the Glass, Darkly”
