*New* Ron D. Moore’s Interview with Entertainment Tonight   1 comment

Here is a new interview with Ron D. Moore from Entertainment Tonight (ET)

Outlander 2014
From ET:

If you thought things on Outlander were getting dire, you haven’t seen anything yet.

In the penultimate episode of Starz’s time-travel saga, Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) was feeling the wrath of Black Jack Randall’s (Tobias Menzies) sadistic torture during his Wentworth prison stay. Bloodied, battered and emotionally (and physically) scarred, it’s safe to say, Jamie’s life will never be the same again.

*New* Interview with Ron D. Moore from The Wall Street Journal **FINALE SPOILERS**   1 comment

Here’s a new interview with Ron D.Moore from The Wall Street Journal

From The Wall Street Journal:

Let’s not mince words here: The season finale of Starz‘s swashbuckling adventure-fantasy series “Outlander” was dark. Like, painfully dark. Most of it entailed the psychological, physical and sexual abuse of protagonist Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) by the sadistic Redcoat captain Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), and the staunch resolve of Jamie’s time-traveling wife, Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who refused to let her husband succumb to his demons after he was rescued from Wentworth Prison.

Needless to say, showrunner Ronald D. Moore, who also co-wrote the finale, “To Ransom a Man’s Soul,” had a lot on his plate when prepping for both this episode, and the equally disturbing penultimate, “Wentworth Prison.” But it may surprise you to learn that for all of the upsetting material Moore had to tackle from author Diana Gabaldon‘s original “Outlander” novel, it wasn’t the abuse scenes he was most dreading (hint: the scenes in question featured a certain hairy farm animal native to Scotland).

*New* Interview with Ron D.Moore from Yahoo TV **FINALE SPOILERS**   1 comment

Here’s a new interview with Ron D.Moore from Yahoo TV

From Yahoo TV:

Fellow time travelers, we have come to the end of our Season 1 Outlander journey. It will be months before we get to watch the ginger and his knocked-up gal pal’s Parisian escapades. Even worse, it will be months before the Highland heinie’s next cameo.

But before the idea of a Sassenach-less summer sends you on a Rhenish bender, Yahoo TV has one last postmortem Q&A to stem the tidal wave of tears — and hopefully help you heal after that emotionally-draining final hour. Executive producer Ronald D. Moore talks with us about the controversial Black Jack-Jamie prison scenes in “To Ransom A Man’s Soul,” what it was like to air after the Game Of Thrones rape controversy, and his overall satisfaction with Season 1. He was also kind enough to indulge a few Season 2 queries, so if you don’t want to know anything, there’s a glass of Collum’s finest calling.

*New* Interview with Ron D. Moore and Sam Heughan from Zap2it **FINALE SPOILERS**   4 comments

Here’s a new interview with Ron D.Moore and Sam Heughan from Zap2it

From Zap2It:

Diana Gabaldon published the novel “Outlander” in 1991, which means fans have had 14 years to prepare for the events that finally aired on TV during the Starz series’ Season 1 finale.

That didn’t make the watching of them any easier.

“It’s intense stuff,” showrunner Ron Moore tells Zap2it of the May 31 episode. In it, viewers watched hero Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) be emotionally and sexually tortured by villain Black Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), and then struggle with the ramifications of those events after he’s saved by his wife/the show’s main character, Claire (Caitriona Balfe).

From Variety:

Starz’s “Outlander” has seen its heroine, Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser (Caitriona Balfe), navigate the battlefields of World War II to the emotional minefield of the 18th century Scottish Highlands, facing threats too numerous to list — but her greatest challenge came not from a physical fight, but the struggle for her husband’s Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) soul following his rape and torture at the hands of Jonathan “Black Jack” Randall (Tobias Menzies). It’s a confrontation that’s been building all season, hinted at but not fully realized in the penultimate episode and brought to gut-wrenching life in the finale in some of the most shocking and affecting scenes ever aired on television.

To break down the many shocking developments in the season finale, Variety spoke to showrunnerRon Moore about tackling the challenging subject matter and adapting Diana Gabaldon’s most potent prose for the screen, as well as his plans for season two.
