Outlander Superlatives: Episode 308 – First Wife

Outlander is taking us home sweet home! Episode 308, “First Wife,” brings us back to Lallybroch, which means familiar faces, sibling squabbles, a few more scars for JAMMF, a wee bit of dung, oh, and that whole bombshell about Jamie being married to Laoghaire. On the plus side, it also means that JAMMF’s hair has … More Outlander Superlatives: Episode 308 – First Wife

Outlander Superlatives: Episode 307 – Creme de Menthe

HOLY SMOKES. Outlander is on FIRE. Literally. I just knew Jamie’s smolder would ignite something one of these days. Episode 307, “Crème de Menthe,” had me on the edge of my seat with all of its turmoil, bromances, and villainous excise men. Also, I’d almost forgotten what kind of zany 18th century hijinks Claire can get herself … More Outlander Superlatives: Episode 307 – Creme de Menthe

There’s something … More Revisiting The Baby-sitters Club: Say Hello to Kristy’s Great Idea

Outlander Superlatives: Episode 305 – Freedom and Whisky

At the risk of repeating myself, I have to ask: Is this season of Outlander knocking it out of the shinty field or what?! I cannae even watch without crying my guts out, and the long burn of Jamie and Claire’s separation has paid off like a pot of Jacobite gold. I’ll even let the … More Outlander Superlatives: Episode 305 – Freedom and Whisky

The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman: Spellbinding in Every Way

I’ve always believed in magic. My dog gives me a look, and through no control of my own, I find myself handing over a cookie. A rainstorm clears, and suddenly, there’s a giant double rainbow. I pick up a book, and through words on paper, I’m instantly transported to another time and place, immersed in … More The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman: Spellbinding in Every Way

Outlander Superlatives: Episode 304 – Of Lost Things

I’m about to make a bold statement, my fellow Outlander fanatics. Episode 304, “Of Lost Things,” is my favorite episode to date. I love it even more than the wedding, more than Jamie swooping into Black Jack’s window to save Claire, more than the Battle of Prestonpans when I cried my face off, more than … More Outlander Superlatives: Episode 304 – Of Lost Things
