New series Update on Starz
Outlander Season 5
The series continues in North Carolina before the outbreak of the War of Independence. Those nasty English are at it again!!
Episode 1 of 12: The Fiery Cross
Following celebrations in honour of Brianna and Roger's wedding, Governor Tryon reminds Jamie of his obligation to hunt down and kill Murtagh Fitzgibbons.
IMDB Rating 8.6/10
As you'd expect from a first episode of a new season there is a lot of setting the story up, which means it is a little ploddy and slow.
The first thing I liked about the early Outlander series was the time travel, out of time element. This has been touched upon and used since and I hope it continues to be so. As it lifts it above the normal fictional historical drama.
I can take the nasty stereotypical English themes as long as the stories are good.
I am hoping for more excitement and action in the next episode and as another two seasons have been green lighted lets hope so.
MGN S5 Ep 1 Rating (A slow start) 6/10
