Another gander at OUTLANDER

The trio:  [L-R] Claire, Jamie, Frank

Yes I’m still watching the series that STARZ has duly birthed.
I enjoy the recreation of yesterday in all of its humility and girth.

I do.

So I’m watching it again and each episode is challenged and tried,
though I must admit “they got me,” the episode when Frank died.

I didn’t see it coming.
When I saw he had a ‘side chic’ – I heard wedding bells humming.

Frank said he wanted to marry his side gal and Claire was stunned.
However the writers lost control of his car in script and Franks role was done.

Dun-dun-dun.
A life without Claire was never his to be won.

And so we move on in the storyline,
Claire and Jamie‘s daughter, Brianna is a gingered delight.

She’s all grown up and living her life.
Claire’s heart still yearns to visit Edinburg, thrice, (she’s already been twice).

Brianna concurred ‘the thought is nice,’ then encouraged her mother to follow her heart.
This was episode 305’s conveying point of start.

Claire didn’t need arm twisting to declare that she will indeed return!
Then Roger gifted her with a bind of Scottish history that we’ve learned.

She’ll be careful not to lose sight of it in any year near 1756,
For the book is from the future and she will most surely burn as a witch.

Brianna gave her a topaz gemstone pendant to memorialize Claire’s ado,
then Claire with her own hands sewed herself a cute period suit.

It was a dress to be exact. That ol’ Claire can really sew!
She pieced together a fine little number out of a 1960’s raincoat.

Not too many days afterward she hailed a cab in the NYC hussle
though upon exiting the cab she purposely stepped into a puddle.

Why a puddle – you ask? Maybe it rained hard an hour or two?
Well the point of the puddle is when Claire was a child she feared she fall through

Any puddle on the ground. So at all cost she would avoid.
That was before time travel. The puddle is now welcomed noise.

She entered into a taxi but exited horse and buggy.
The day was an overcast, dim, dank and muggy.

Claire is back in the 1700’s, where the love affair all began,
I’m Qui
glued to the tube, but this is where episode 305 came to an end.

outlander-claire-ep305.jpgFYI — Claire also took, in tow, meds and pennacilin.
If only time travel was MORE than science fiction.

Still Starz and Outlander are rendering us a creative win.
Looking for a distraction from real life? You should tune in.

Take a gander at OUTLANDER

L-R: Captain “Black Jack” Randall, Dougal, Jamie Fraser, Claire Beauchamp and Frank Randall.  The last 2 male characters are MARRIED to Claire and simultaneously so, but in their respective era...

Aye, STARZ is getting a lot of my attention these days, first there was POWER and now – OUTLANDER. I can’t get enough of either. Please tell me you have been tuning into this 200 year span journey that Claire Beauchamp-Randall-Fraser is on? It’s an interesting picture of the late 1700’s, in fact the year 1743, to be exact. There are even slaves in their script, though I’ve only seen one on film and she was in France. The show’s setting is in Scotland and travels abroad to Britain and France – in the name of war.

An outlander is a foreigner; a stranger and Claire fits the bill, dimensionally. It all started in 1943 during the close of World, Claire Beauchamp and Frank Randall were reuniting after serving in the war. She was on the front line nursing the wounded and Frank was recruited by MI6. The two reunited in England and jetted off to the Scottish Highlands to celebrate their wedding vows on the turf of Franks ancestors. While there, they visited a place called IVERNESS, a mystical place with a pagan-symbolic ancient stone circle. During Frank and Claire’s exploration of the Inverness she touched one of the stones and passed 200 years backwards in time.

The beginning …

That was 2 seasons ago, we are now in wait in for season 3. It was confirmed in June of this year that OUTLANDER has been renewed for season 3 and 4. I’m certainly up for more.

Seasons 1 & 2 taught me a lot, about the storyline and the look.
I learned that this awesome series was also fashioned after a book.

I am now in wait to receive my own.
A little “me time,” with a bind – to tickle my dome…

This series keeps my mind in the frame of The Butterflhy Effect and the WHAT IF WE COULDs…
But then I’m reminded for my race, none of this journey would have been EQUALLY good.

Black people had no solid rights to roam any land in 1743 nor 1943.
I was born in 1971. Thank God for birthing me a “freeman” Qui. 😀

With the knowledge of – still, this show is pretty darn good,
if history were not cloaked in slavery blood, perhaps even I would…

Time travel.

A good show is understood and this is one from the STARZ,
I’m Qui
An indoor Summer-time, she, suggesting that OUTLANDER goes hard.
