Outlander returns November 4, reuniting its audience once more with aspirational-y sexy middle-aged couple Claire and Jamie Fraser. Once more, they are on the verge of all-out war with Great Britain, because they are physically incapable of staying out of trouble.
Also: Claire’s still making alarming discoveries about fellow time travelers based on her modern medical knowledge, and this show is still inspiring me to purchase too many earth-tone fall ensembles and daydream about D.I.Y. projects that will certainly not turn out as well as the couple’s forest home. Most important of all, the trailer promises bathtub sex.
Of course, now that we’re in America and specifically the Carolinas on the eve of the American Revolution, we’re getting into some, ah, tricky territory for historical fiction to navigate without running entirely off the rails and exploding in a fiery mangled wreck of offensive stereotypes. Good luck to the Outlander team, and to all of us!
