World Outlander Day

Happy World Outlander Day!

On June 1st of each year, millions of fans celebrate and honor Herself, Diana Gabaldon and the Outlander Universe she created.  This year, AbbyShot (a Canadian clothing company featured on the Outlander Inspired Merchandise Around The Web page), has done something special to mark the occasion.  

It’s important to know that they were approached by Sony directly and asked to create replicas as well as inspired pieces from the show. They aligned themselves with the very mill in Scotland who created the registered tartans for the show and now their products are in 17 castles and heritage shops across Scotland alone (not to mention retail outlets in the US, Canada, Germany, Switzerland & soon to be New Zealand).

And lucky for us, they are diehard Outlander fans!

OMG I think I’m in lurv:

Not only is today #WorldOutlanderDay, but Starz has renewed “Outlander” for both Seasons 3 AND 4!

Season 3 will be based on Voyager, and Season 4 Drums of Autumn.

“Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said of the renewal:

…On this 25th anniversary of the publication of the first book in the U.S., we are thrilled and honored to be able to continue the story that began with author Diana Gabaldon, and is brought to life by the incredibly talented Ronald D. Moore. There are no better storytellers for ‘Outlander’ than this team, both in front and behind the camera.” ~ Variety.com

Happy World Outlander Day indeed!

Lest There Be Any Doot…

I attended the world premiere screening of Outlander last night in San Diego, CA (at SDCC) and I just want to reassure anyone who might still be worrit about Sam being a convincing Jamie- dinna fash!

Even though I trusted Ron Moore & his production team, there was, yes, still a teeny-tiny part of me that wasn’t sure if I’d be able to reconcile Sam with the Jamie I held in my mind’s eye, when I read the books.

Well.

From the very first second “Jamie” appeared in the episode, I was sold. As in DONE. A goner. I wasn’t watching Sam Heughan on screen, I was seeing Jamie. MY Jamie.

And it wasn’t about nitpicking physical features—Sam just embodied Jamie. Or maybe channeled is a better word…

Have nae doot, you willna be disappointed.
