The theme song changes slightly with the start of Season 2 as the story moves to France. The new lyrics of the second chorus are: "Chante-moi l'histoire/ D'une fille d'autrefois/ S'agirait-il de moi?/ L'ame légère/ Elle prit un jour la mer" See more »

Happy that Outlander is back!
13 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Really enjoyed the first episode of the second season of Outlander. As a book reader, I never thought too much about what Frank was doing during Claire's disappearance. Great to explore another part of the world of Outlander, but I was happy to get back to Claire and Jamie. The surprise of the time jump for show-only fans is nothing to the one that we book fans endured. I honestly thought I had picked up the wrong book in the series. Book fans often report throwing Dragonfly in Amber across the room during the first read. I did appreciate the show allowing us to adjust to the change in scenery from Scotland to France by not dropping us directly into the French royal court. I'm looking forward to seeing the court sets & production design by Jon Gary Steele and the costume designs by Terry Dresbach.
