Jamie Fraser: Clan leader?

Though fans of Starz’s Outlander likely would follow the Highlander Currently Known as MacTavish just about anywhere, members of his own family have different thoughts on the matter – as we’ll see in Saturday’s episode (9/8c).

The clan drama comes to a head at The Gathering, a regular event in which all of the MacKenzie men travel to Castle Leoch to pledge loyalty to Colum as head of the clan. (Look for Outlander author Diana Gabaldon and series creator Ron Moore to make cameos as Gathering attendees.)

Though on the surface it seems like nothing more than a big party, The Gathering leaves Jamie with a serious dilemma: Swear the oath and position himself as someone with designs on his uncle Colum’s post, or refuse and…

Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode #104: THE GATHERING

Outlander Episode #104: THE GATHERING presented an array of dramatic looks based on superb performances by the entire cast. The character arc for Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) delivered him into his full-fledged manhood.

While I very much enjoyed his lovey-dovey looks from THE WAY OUT, his soul-baring looks from CASTLE LEOCH, and his bloody-sexy looks from SASSENACH, I was astounded by his courageous and heart-felt looks in THE GATHERING.

As I state in my review, this is my favorite episode thus far because it focuses on the intricacies of the plot while advancing Jamie and Claire’s (Caitriona Balfe) relationship in a way that’s not obvious. Jamie and Claire have been on different paths since they first met, but the night of the Gathering brings them together in a way neither of them expected.

Here is my list of Jamie’s Top 30 Looks for THE GATHERING. As predicted…

Jamie’s Top 30 Looks from Outlander Episode #105: RENT

As I state in my review, Outlander Episode #105: RENT is very dark. But there is also much sparkage lighting up the screen – not all of it romantic. That’s okay. We want to see all the characters shine, especially the “sweet lad” Jamie (Sam Heughan) – as Dougal refers to him.

Outside the dank walls of Castle Leoch, everyone seems to come alive. It’s impossible not to be affected by the verdant air and sweeping landscapes of Scotland.

Dougal (Graham McTavish) is chipper, despite his constant mistrust of Claire. Ned Gowan (Bill Paterson) is his own breath of fresh air, despite his asthma. Angus (Stephen Walters) is still grouchy, despite everyone else’s laid back attitude. Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is feistier than ever but finds herself sympathizing with the MacKenzies, despite her captivity.

And then there’s Jamie . . .

On September 1st, I reblogged something I thought the text was written or quoted by Meryl Streep. Unfortunately the text was originally written and published by Portuguese writer Jose Micard Teixeira. They are words Meryl Streep live by and credit should go to Jose Micard Teixeira.

Finally got to watch the show after a couple of days, this time with my son. The reason it takes a few days to watch is because I have to wait for another person to view it, either my son or my girlfriend or my sister, because I watched the first episode by myself and everybody had a hissy fit because they wanted to watch with me. The only problem being everybody I watch the show with is a talker! And I hate that! Ugh! Stop asking me questions, and just watch it dammit. I’m going to clue everyone who does this in about something, and please hear me out.


Okay, you’ve been warned. That goes for husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, sons, daughters, mothers, or anyone else…

I no longer have patience

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with…
