So after a long awaited weekend off, I was left with the house to myself, and what better activity (besides reading) than to spend my time starting a new TV series.
I was first introduced to the Outlander book series a few years back when a close friend of mine was reading it and raving on about how good it was. However the premise didn't really grasp me. I had not developed a love of historical fiction back then and I stuck almost exclusively to YA. Plus the idea of a girl who goes back to 1700's just didn't at all sound appealing to a 19 year old me. However with the hype around the recently released TV series I thought I would give it a go. Gif's seem the way to go with expressing my emotions throughout the pilot.
My First Impression
So I'm kind of excited...ok alot excited. Everyone keeps talking about this show.
Wow being a war time nurse looks intense and look at all that blood.
Oh...it's over already... Well let's snuggle up and marathon the rest.
Overall I really enjoyed the pilot of this series. I adore historical TV shows, but they always manage to break my spiritand cause all the feels (I'm looking at you 'Reign'). I feel like the actors were well matched to the characters. I've even been inspired to start reading the book series which is very close to the TV show, with quotes taken out to use as dialogue in the show. This is one I will definitly continue with, even if it does break my heart.
