15 Reasons ‘Outlander’ Should Be Your New Favorite Show

Catch the new series Saturdays at 9pm ET on Starz.

But First, A Quick Summary As Told By ‘Orange Is The New Black’

1. Sam Heughan as Jamie Fraser

Seriously, just look at him.

2. Smoldering Chemistry Between Heughan and Caitriona Balfe

Just bask in that look for a moment.

3. The Sultriness of the Gaelic Language


Hear that? That’s the sound of pantries dropping any time Heughan says ‘Sassenach’

4. An Excellent Use of Scenary

Yeah, of course I was totally checking out that horse. What else would I have been staring at?

5. Claire’s Biting Wit and Social Commentary

You go girl. Preach!

6. Great Costume Design

We didn’t like that shirt either. Might as well get rid of the pants, too. Just to be on the safe side.

7. Claire is a Woman Who Knows How to Drink

But who wouldn’t need a drink with Jamie Fraser roaming nearby?

8. Did I Mention Heughan and Balfe’s Chemistry Yet?

Is it warm in here to anyone else?

9. Never Fear, Gentlemen! There’s Action, Too

How’s the testosterone doing now? Better?

10. Generally Great Cinematography

Pretty lights!

11. Thrilling Fight Scenes

Check out that backhand. Guys, you in yet?

12. Claire Makes a Great Doctor

And her patients aren’t so bad either….

13. Snarky Old Ladies

14. Three Words. Men in Kilts.

The rest of them look great, too.

15. Last But Not Least….

It’s simply a great show.
