To celebrate the newest season of Outlander, let’s look at some of the ways you can celebrate your fandom with accessories of all sorts. From Etsy to Zazzle to Hot Topic/Torrid, the new season brings with it a torrent of new items to help you share your Sassenach-ness with the world. Continue reading
The title of the first episode of Outlander’s third season, “The Battle Joined”, is a fitting title for this review because, in many senses, it encompasses the theme of the entire season to come. As someone who has read the books multiple times, I know what’s ahead for these characters, but, as a fan of the show, knowing what will happen is not the same as knowing how it will play out on screen. If you wonder why readers want to watch adaptations of their favorite books, what the cast and crew of Outlander put on screen should answer that question for all time. To take the grand tomes that Gabaldon has created and then boil them down to thirteen hours of television is a monumental task, but to do it in a way that consistently brings fans back even after a fourteen-month hiatus is Herculean.
They make it look so easy I nearly forgot that Droughtlander ever happened. Continue reading
Finally, we know when Droughtlander will come to an end! Season three of the hit Starz drama Outlander will premiere on Sunday, September 10th. The show aired its season finale for season 2 in July 2016. Season three will pick up where that final episode left off, bringing the third book in the Outlander series, Voyager, to viewers worldwide.
Starz’s announcement of a premiere date also came with a poster for the new season as well as a couple of other wee treats.
All right, I’m going to make a shocking admission right here, right now. You’re going to be floored when you hear what it is, especially given the nature of our site, but here we go: I don’t watch much television. Between kids and work and life, I have become infinitely pickier about what I watch. With that in mind, I am here to declare that I have devoted some of my precious television-watching minutes for a wonderful program that I highly recommend to all of you: The Golden Girls.
For fans of any television show, nothing is worse than that inevitable hiatus between seasons. For some fandoms, like Game of Thrones and now Outlander, that hiatus stretches much longer than we all may like, but that time gives producers and writers the chance to bring something epic and satisfying. With Outlander moving on to the third book in the series, Voyager, this extended break between seasons better brings us all the best damn season ever after Starz’s recent announcement about Claire and Jamie and their story.

Though familiar with the novel and its concept during my years studying English, I had never read Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. When Hulu announced that they would be adapting the dystopian novel into a ten-episode series, I immediately downloaded it to my e-reader and found myself so engrossed in this story that the show’s premiere in April cannot come fast enough.

When the news came out that Netflix was reviving Gilmore Girls, the news was splashed across my Facebook wall and my Twitter feed, and then my phone blew up with a number of texts.
When the trailer premiered and I watched it on my phone, my computer, and then my Roku, I cried.
When the final scene faded from the screen, my butt was sore from sitting on it for too long and my eyes and heart were aching from the roller coaster ride I had just been treated to finally.
Thank goodness Gilmore Girls is back.
On Monday, Michael Ausiello of TVLine.com teased something big coming from Netflix on Tuesday, October 25th. If it’s coming from Ausiello, the ultimate Gilmore Girls fan, then it had to be the one thing that Gilmore Girls fans have been missing in the run-up to the revival’s premiere on November 25th: a trailer. Sure enough, after months of stills and posters and onset photos whipping fans into a frenzy, Netflix released a two-and-a-half minute trailer of the four 90-minute episodes.
And every blessed second of it is GLORIOUS!
