Watch the Full ‘Outlander’ Series Premiere
The latest Starz original series is an adaptation of Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling book series. Outlander is kind of hard to classify, given how many different genres it spans, from romance to science fiction, from history to fantasy, from adventure to action.
From executive producer Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica), Outlander tells the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is pulled back in time to 1743, where she immediately finds herself in constant danger. However, an intense, passionate love affair is ignited after she is forced to marry Jamie, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior. Unfortunately, Claire also has a husband back home she’s trying to get back to, making this a love triangle that spans centuries. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
The full series premiere has been made available by Starz, and it looks to be the start of a pretty damn compelling series, judging by this first episode.
