Fan Book Review: The Making of Outlander: Official Guide to Seasons Three & Four
by theurb03 on January 13, 2020 at 5:26 pm
During Droughtlander, it’s nice to revisit episodes and the moments you like best of the past few seasons before the next season premieres. Ahead of season five, one great way to do that is by reading Tara Bennett’s The Making of Outlander: The Official Guide to Seasons Three and Four which dives into each episode, […]
2019 Wrap Up: The Good, Not So Good, But Ultimately Fun Outlander Year!
by theurb03 on December 31, 2019 at 8:34 pm
This year has given and taken for Outlander fans. Whether you enjoyed Season 4 or not, there were other projects to see some of the show’s actors, new interviews to read and hear, (more unique dress choices from Caitriona Balfe) and cast appearances at award shows among many other things. With Season 5 on […]
Season 5’s New Opening Credits
by theurb03 on December 27, 2019 at 9:53 pm
After the holiday blitz of menorahs, Christmas trees, over-eating, gift-buying, crazy driving, and ringing in the New Year by watching confetti spill over the ball drop at Times Square (or for some of us – staying quietly at home and passing out by 10pm), Droughtlander will be almost over! Fans won’t have to wait long […]
Feeling Small: Meeting Tobias in London
by theurb03 on August 6, 2019 at 3:01 pm
I’ve been quiet about my meeting Tobias Menzies after his play “The Hunt” in London last week. I’ve been quiet about it because the evening upset me on a few levels that have nothing to do with him and nothing to do with Caitriona Balfe who, yes, was there too. Who knew the chances of […]
UK Bound 2019
by theurb03 on July 21, 2019 at 7:34 pm
Since falling in love with Outlander in 2016 I’ve made new friends from abroad and close by, visited Scotland (when I thought I’d never go), met Laura Donnelly (Jenny Fraser!) after she comped me a ticket to her play The Ferryman, and had exciting experiences like meeting Sam Heughan on national TV. Where’s my love for […]
I ❤ Social Media!
by theurb03 on June 20, 2019 at 12:15 pm
I love social media!! When it’s used for good and not evil. Like when someone, let’s call her Nice UK Stranger Lady On Instagram, is sitting behind Tobias Menzies in a London restaurant and posts a picture of it. I then (cautiously) engage in conversation (not to appear too crazy) subtly (or not so subtly) […]
That’s a Wrap on 2018! The Cons, Tweets, and GMA Appearances with Sam!
by theurb03 on January 4, 2019 at 3:20 pm
Happy new year! As a wild and crazy Outlander fan, 2018 brought some surprises. I didn’t get to return to Scotland this year since my 2017 trip mostly because I haven’t (yet) met my Jamie Fraser to cozy up with in a cabin in the Highlands. Don’t worry because I’m working on it. I’ll send […]
Mid Season 4 Check In!
by theurb03 on January 1, 2019 at 12:06 am
Hold on as this rollercoaster takes off! Episode 5 “Savages” So many tears this episode! First, I am loving the opening between Adawehi and Claire. Two equals. Two lady healers talking about plants and thus “breaking bread” together. When Adawehi says about Brianna to Claire “she’s here”, did you think she knew […]
Season 4 Review So Far: Where do we go from here?
by theurb03 on November 29, 2018 at 1:18 pm
Episode 4 “Common Ground” marks a quarter way through Season 4 of Claire and Jaime’s epic journey through the colonies. In true Outlander fashion, much has already happened and I’m wondering how will the story unfold from here? The teaser for Episode 5 dangles a carrot by way of Brianna: She looks awfully close to thos […]
LIFE MADE: Just another Monday meeting Sam Heughan on GMA!
by theurb03 on November 6, 2018 at 6:29 pm
Here’s the skinny on how the greatest day of my life happened! It all started on a Thursday. I was given a heads up the night before by one of the admins of the New York Outlander 5 Boroughs Facebook group that GMA (Good Morning America incase you’re not clear) might be contacting a few […]
New York Comic Con 2018 Part 2: Veni, Vidi, Vici
by theurb03 on October 12, 2018 at 1:00 pm
There are many benefits to living in New York City and one of them is when Outlander comes to New York Comic Con! This was the first year they came and thus it was my first time attending the Con as a fan (disregard that one time being dragged to only see the Exhibitors Hall by a […]
New York Comic Con 2018 Part 1: Executive Producer Ron D. Moore
by theurb03 on October 9, 2018 at 1:16 pm
Kicking off the big weekend I attended Outlander Executive Producer Ron D. Moore’s panel on Friday to get myself ready for Saturday. It was at a smaller venue near the mammoth Javits Center and so it was more intimate. Chris Parnell, the Sony Pictures Television Co-President, along with Mark A. Altman a “trekspert” and author, both moderated […]
