The Kilts are Coming! Outlander the Series Debuts on STARZ

This post sponsored by Time Warner Cable. All opinions are my own.

Calling all Outlander fans! Yes, Diana Gabaldon's international bestselling series is making it's debut with Time Warner's Outlander exclusively on STARZ August 9th, at 9pm EST/PST.

One of the best known and most talked about romance series, it combines action with historical fiction and even time travel. Even if you haven't heard of the series, or have read the books, this is going to be the new series not to miss!

"Outlander" follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. ...a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire's heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.
I have to admit that I had a sneak peek at the first 2 episodes and though I am sworn to secrecy, I can say that I was not disappointed! I will be tuning in every week to get my fix of Jaime Fraser and his Sassenach.

Jamie is played by Sam Heughan, and though he was a bit smaller in stature than I had hoped, I quickly fell in love with his portrayal of the key character. Clair is played by actress Caitriona Balfe and Frank/Jack Randall is played by Tobias Menzies. Just following the promotional photos and trailers has been giving me chills. Seeing these characters come to life is amazing.

So we have kilts, period costumes and an electrifying romance to tune into every week. What is there not to love?

Even better, you can start streaming the first episode August 2nd on Starz online, and then watch it again when it premieres on TV on the 9th. Connect with your fellow fans on the Outlander Facebook page.

With so many books in the series, all I can keep thinking is, please let this show go on and on... and bring the entire story of Jamie and Claire onto the small screen. You have to see it. I am sure you will fall in love with it as well.

Have you read the books? Who is your favorite character and why?
