Cast: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, Graham McTavish

Claire Randall, a  combat nurse in World War II. Claire returns home to England in the arm of her lovely husband Frank (Tobias Menzies) .The two have seen little of each other over the past few years. But one day suddenly she finds herself mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threaten. The couples end up in a scotty village on Halloween where they stubble on a group of Viccans Performing a moonlight ceremony at the ancient circle of stones Gee you would think they’d know better not to mess with those ceremony. The next thing Claire wakes up at the circle of stones in 1743 she got transported to that period of time.

there is a good series the story, the writing, the costumes, the sets , the period of which are heroin is going to be transported, is perfect. Sam Heughan is perfect as Jamie Fraser he has the rugged look about him. Caitriona Balfe also seemed plays  Claire she is beautiful, strong , intelligent. From the 1st episode I think they producers were not shy to include the sexual aspects of the Outlander books, as they do have this erotic element that actually makes the love between Claire and Jamie the driving force of their relationship which allows it to go on for centuries, even when they are no longer together. It is that love, passion that comes alive plus the sparks flies. The scenery are breath-taking so is the cinematography of course. There are right element in this there is mystery, adventure, Danger, villain, passion, sex, mystery. Over all a nice little series if you like the book you are going to love the series but I will say that it is an adaptation of the book.

Frank Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt), is a former New York mobster Who testify against his boss. He joined the witness protection program. But unfortunately  His boss found out where he relocated so Tagliano tell the feds that he wants to relocate to Lillehammer In Norway. He saw the town in 1994 at the olympics and thought  that no one would is going to think he is in Europe. The transition from being a well respected gangster to a normal citizen in Norway is not easy. Frank soon discovers that in order to succeed in Norway , he must resort to his old ways.

Here is a genius approach to a series where culture difference is going to clash. On the top of it it is a gangster from America who settle in Norway. This series is from Netflix their first series and well done at that. This could of been the Soprano’s spin off but it is not. There is some stuff a lit bit out of hand  Frank being from New York can’t speak their language but understanding really fast learning there, but it is a TV show nobody is going to care. Right from the start you should know that Frank is going to resort to the old ways in order to succeed in Norway. There is a romance with the school teacher with light comedy in it. I love it myself? it is entertaining.
