New Clip and Article from IGN for Outlander Episode 2×09 ‘Je Suis Prest’   2 comments

From IGN:

The crew of Outlander has missed shooting on location in Scotland, but after a week of terrible rains that turned the massive farm they’re shooting on into a muddy mess, they welcome the sunlight and balmy weather. It’s the perfect weather for Sam Heughan’s Jamie Fraser to train these wannabe soldiers how to use the weapons they’ll be fighting the British with.

“It feels like things are just beginning to ramp up,” Heughan told me later in his trailer after he’d wrapped for the day, sipping a glass of Laphroaig, his favorite whisky. “The first half of the season there’s a lot of talk about this great battle, about Culloden, about how we know this whole people and culture are doomed. Ultimately Jamie realizes that he can’t [stop Charles Stuart from raising the army]. He has to join them and has to help.”

World Outlander Day and A Look Ahead to Outlander Episode 2×09   23 comments

I love being able to write this follow-up and look ahead every week.  It gives me a chance after a few days reflection and reading other people’s takes on the last episode, to gain a bit of perspective and gives me a chance to examine my initial reaction.  I told several readers this week that by Wednesday I make some re-calibrations. As most of you know, this wasn’t my favorite episode (see here). My biggest issue was with changes to characters’ motivation and personality and the move in a different direction to the Leery story arc.

I heard from a lot of different folks on the blog, Bethwesson.com.  At least 100 of you left your views in the comment section and most were fairly lengthy observations and explanations.  Which I love by the way.  For the most part, it was very civil.  Some readers shared that they felt like I did.  They didn’t hate the episode, but it left them scratching their heads in puzzlement.  Others flat out hated it and felt this episode confirmed for them that the characters they hoped they were going to see just weren’t going to materialize.  Others told me that they loved it and why.  Many encouraged me to listen to Ron’s podcast and to read Diana’s and Ron’s comments about this episode.  I don’t do podcasts (they eat my internet minutes), but I do read.  So, I set about to find said comments.

New Pictures and Interview of Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies in Backstage   3 comments

From Backstage

Fans of Starz’s time-travel drama “Outlander” may be surprised that no one asked Sam Heughan to take his shirt off during the audition process.

That may sound reasonable, but as viewers know, Heughan spends much of his onscreen time flashing some serious skin—and as it turns out, the series lucked out with the Scot when it comes to physiques.

“I’ve been in many auditions thinking, God, do I have to take my shirt off? It’s quite a physical role…,” Heughan says while his co-star—and onscreen nemesis—Tobias Menzies chuckles across the table. “It’s quite exposing, actually. But no, they didn’t [ask]. And at the time, I was keeping quite fit. So it was all right!”
