Outlander: Season 2 Reviews

August 14, 2017
The stuff that sets Outlander apart from the rest of the pack doesn't come at the expense of Serious Television values like realism and nuance.

The fantasy is delicious-beautifully rendered and infinitely appealing.

It will be interesting to see if season two can match (or exceed) the lofty achievements of season one. Perhaps the important thing to know is, despite these shifts, Outlander remains as sweeping and addictive as ever, which goes a long way.

Outlander is a weird show, we've established that. So when I say that Season 2 of Outlander... is just as weird as the show's ever been, read that as high praise.

The Jamie and Claire show moves to Paris - and in a sense, Frank and Jack do as well. A nice change of locale, and tone.

What heightens the series to the level of jaw-dropping dramatic art is, first, the subtly unorthodox female perspective and, second, the successful establishment inside the principal storyline of the transforming power of adult love in all its aspects.

Interesting? Yes. But fitfully involving.

Outlander is using its time in Paris to further explore Claire and Jamie's marriage and individual personalities through facing new challenges, and it merges that with both humor and romance in increasingly great ways.

Outlander strikes a rare and unusual balance: It paints with bold colors, and yet it's true to human complexities that are felt rather than articulated.

It's not just well-written and lovely to look at. It's downright immersive.
