10 Reasons We Love… OUTLANDER (TV SHOW)

By Jennifer

outlanderLast week, I brought you an introduction to Outlander the book series and hopefully piqued your interest in Diana Gabaldon’s work. The series encompasses not just books, but a graphic novel and now a television series. Produced by Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Roswell), the show premiered in August 2014 on Starz, a venue which allowed the show sixteen episodes to cover the first book of the series and retain all of the (sexy) fun and (historical) excitement it contains.

With that in mind, if you’re more of a fan of the visual or even if you need some help imagining what specifically is going on at any given moment in Outlander, here are ten reasons you should be watching Outlander the television series:

By Ana

Actor Charlie Cox is successful at presenting the audience with a Daredevil who doesn’t come off as cocky (we’re talking to you, Affleck) but instead is morally torn, self-isolated, and constantly struggling to get back up when the bad guys push him down. If you’re still not convinced by my endorsement, here are 10 reasons you should be watching Netflix’s Daredevil! Continue reading

By T. Mack

Anyone young and impressionable in the 90’s who was into television knew who Aaron Spelling was. The man made TV magic.

The women promptly cast a spell over audiences and continued to charm them for eight seasons until 2006. Here are a few of the reasons this show was so bewitching:
