Outlander, the TV show adaptation of my favorite book series officially comes out in one week, on August 9th.

The "Outlander" series spans the genres of romance, science-fiction, history and adventure in one epic tale. It follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945, who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743 Scotland. Upon her arrival, she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. But when Claire is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited. Now Claire's heart is torn between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

It feels like I've been waiting forever for this, when it has been a bit more than a year since it was first announced.

It's been fun to follow along online with the casting process, and roll my eyes at the other fans who whined about who was cast or how they weren't going to fit the roll.  I figure let's wait and see how they do before we decide if they're good or not.

Starz is releasing the first episode one week early and for free!

You can see it on Starz Play (click on Outlander and scroll down). (Starz Play will allow you to watch on a computer, or you can download the app for your Android or Iphone or tablet. You have to have a Starz subscription to watch anything but the first episodes of their shows - the first one's free.)

Right now there are several previews/trailers and later tonight/early tomorrow morning (midnight on August 2nd) the first episode, Sassanach, will be available. 

I am thinking I'll probably stay up late to watch it...for the first time.

How about you? Are you going to watch it early or will you wait until August 9th and the official release?
