Trivia

Sam Heughan frequently appears shirtless on the show showing off his six pack abs and muscular physique but he's admitted that he does it because fans of the show expect it. He said, "Do I enjoy it? No, but it's a part of Outlander. I enjoy working out and getting a six-pack, but I just wish I could be unbuttoned maybe only three or four buttons for those scenes." Nevertheless, Heughan has said the he works out hard for the role to keep his physique ready for the camera and even does extra push-ups and sit-ups on set before a shirtless scene to get an extra pump.

Goofs

In a few episodes, characters say"OK." An American term that didn't come into use until the 19th Century. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening song changes from season to season to reflect what's happening in the story line. In the first half of Season 2 (which is set in France), part of the lyrics are in French. In the second half of Season 2 (which is mostly about preparing for war), there is a militaristic drum roll added to the opening song. During Season 3, there are tribal drums added because much of the season is set in the West Indies. In Season 4, bluegrass fiddle and banjos are added, plus some of the lyrics are sung with a Southern accent because the season is set mostly in America. See more »

Outlander TV Series Spectacular!
25 August 2014 | by lksmith111See all my reviews

I have been a fan, make that obsessed fan, from the first book. There are now eight BIG books in the series along with The Lord John series and a few novellas. I've read them all numerous times. I was hesitant about TV show ruining the books but Starz and Ron D. Moore have shown that you can use a book's dialog and make the actors fit into the characters and make a marvelous show.

Outlander so far has been a perfect representation of the book. Sam Heughan as Jamie is sublime.....as is Caitrona Balfe as Claire. Even though Claire is telling the story, it's Jamie we all want.

I am thrilled with the camera work, the costumes, and the writing. I'm thinking subtitles for the Gaelic Language would have been a good decision but I understand why there is none. After all Claire doesn't understand it either and it is her story.

Kudos to Diana Gsbaldon for writing the stories and for trusting Ron D. Moore with it. Watch!,
