Now that my keening and wailing at having missed out on yet another San Diego Comic Con has passed, I can tell you that ‘Outlander’ pulled out all the stops at SDCC this year. Even bringing along a “freaking castle“!
If it brought me nothing but this picture, it would be enough:
…but there were also SO MANY MEN IN KILTS!!!
More importantly there were more glimpses at what is to be when it comes to the show. We got our first look at the opening credits:
As well as a brand new trailer:
Sadly there was also a panel, which I’m still working through my pain at missing. *rending of clothes and much sobbing* Starz, in their infinite wisdom, has put the entire thing up online for our viewing pleasure:
While I couldn’t be there to enjoy all the Outlandishness I can comfort myself with the knowledge that the show is having it’s online premiere this weekend.
I am so ready to pass through the stones and finally get to Jamie…uh I mean watch this sure to be awesome show…yeah that’s what I meant, really…
I know I have left my fellow “Outlandish” bereft by not fluffing enough for our upcoming consummation of all things Jamie and Claire with the premiere of ‘Outander’: the series on Starz. Today’s news has brought me out of my cave because it needs to be shared, screamed at the top of my lungs really…
‘OUTLANDER’ IS PREMIERING A WEEK EARLIER ONLINE!
Today’s lessons in speaking Outlander are not as sexy as the last ones. Still there are a few words here that are extremely important to know. Names of potential adversaries and liquor. Both very key factors in my world as well as Claire and Jamie’s.
One must be able to pronounce the names of those who would do you harm, like that little bitch Laoghaire, who should have been drowned at birth. Just sayin’. Also it’s a good thing to know the name of the town witch. You never know when you’ll be on a stake being burned next to her. Good form says pronouncing her name wrong would be rude.
LESSON 4 – “Laoghaire” and “Gellis”
When you’re not sure who’s on your side or not it’s a good thing to know the names of the players involved. Don’t won’t to confuse friend with foe when it comes down to it.
LESSON 5 – “Colum” and “Dougal”
Finally, the most important Gaelic to learn today, how to ask for this particular type of good, strong wine.
LESSON 6 – “Rhenish”
There you go my Outlandish. Go forth and speak Gaelic!
