It’s no surprise the hit Starz show Outlander is one of the most talked about shows right now. The show is hard to pin down to a genre and will appeal to you whether you enjoy historical fiction, time-traveling science fiction, fantasy, or romance. Outlander is all the best parts of these genres in one show. Anyone can start watching every episode of Outlander for free with this one-week free trial to Starz.
Outlander is based on the book of the same name by Diana Gabaldon. The show stars Caitriona Balfe as Claire Randall, a married nurse during World War II, who time travels to Scotland of 1743. There she where she meets Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (played by Sam Heughan) and becomes embroiled in the Jacobite rebellion against the crown.
So if you enjoy the idea of the intrigue that surrounds the Scottish rebellion against the British throne, or a woman torn between two men from vastly different centuries, or both then I strongly recommend you check this show out.
