I agree with you.

Consider Dougal's decision to marry Jaime to Claire in light of what we learned in The Gathering about the succession to Colum's seat.

It's worth remembering that at many places in this era, alcohol was the only thing to drink. There was no pasteurization yet, and in many places the water was deemed unsafe. So she's probably...

It's a hill. You can see it again quickly when Claire and Dougal ride out of town.

Well.... yes, but not really. The Jacobite rebellions of the 18th century weren't really about Scottish independence from England -- they were about succession to the English throne. Of course the...

I know that 90+ percent of what we talk about here is problems, so here's the 10 percent. I had Cox out on Friday to install their security system (for which I'll be paying $40 a month for their...

I think he wished for a new life, and for hope. And at the end, with Jill okay and Nora standing there with the baby, I think he saw it.

After what happened with Jill, I have a hard time...

It really goes beyond what is traditionally thought of as "chick lit," though, due to the serious attention to politics and historical accuracy, as well as the scifi. As books, they are just far...

Oh, the ultimate putdown. Because if it has prominent women characters or appeals to women viewers, it must suck. You know what else was a "great women show"? Battlestar Galactica.

Yes, but in two groups of 8 -- the first four now, the other 8 in winter/spring 2015. I guess that's to keep people like me who are too lazy to bother from canceling Starz for the rest of the year...

From what I've gathered from the podcasts (haven't listened to episode 4's yet) is that the show is told from a very tight point of view, Clare's. That's why, for example, we have no subtitles on...

So there is some unwritten law that shows that are "closer" to each other must be produced on TV in similar styles? If there was an unwritten law, it should say exactly the opposite -- that shows...

LOL. I don't know much about 1940's bras. From what we could see of hers, it didn't look like the shoulder straps were elastic at all. I'm not sure when elastic commonly started being used in the...

Nowhere did I say that. A woman of the 1940's -- and the 2010's -- and men of the 2010's -- are all expected, generally, to be faithful to their spouses.



By that logic, sex and nudity should...

Hmm, no. It explains where their relationship is just before they part, which is important to how Claire feels and reacts to events in the future.

You're really missing the point. She does love...

No, that really isn't the point at all. Geez, way to reduce a female character to nothing but a madonna/whore sexual stereotype.

She explains it herself -- she and her husband are emotionally in...
