Student. Lover of many things, including period drama. I occasionally re-blog content that is loosely related to period drama or history, such as art, dresses, or historical-modern day humor. For the most part it relates or at least mixes it up a little. Feel free to look around or leave a comment. Welcome to Period Dramarama.

Mary, though perfectly resolved against ever attaching herself to a younger brother again, was long in finding among the dashing representatives, or idle heir-apparents, who were at the command of her beauty, and her 20,000, any one who could satisfy the better taste she had acquired at Mansfield, whose character and manners could authorise a hope of the domestic happiness she had there learned to estimate, or put Edmund Bertram sufficiently out of her head.

It looks like a day for FYI! When I get interested in something, I do a lot of research/reflection/consideration/balancing/analysis/etc. so I am not someone who stops at Wikipedia, top articles, search results, etc. I also am not someone who lets someone else do my thinking for me and very often my opinions, thoughts, reflections, manner of thinking, etc. do not coincide with that of others (some examples of this can be found here where I write on occasion and where people do not always agree with me. But I don’t write about everything that I think or reflect/analyze). Everybody is a critic and criticism very often has to be taken with a grain of salt, even when it is constructive. However, criticism is also where genuine discussion can occur and where genuine issues can be addressed and some of the criticism for Outlander was consistent, specific, and troubling.
Given this, and the fact that the book is 600 pages, it is not something that I have time to read/analyze/reflect/consider/etc. right now. I technically did not have time to watch the season premiere but I was procrastinating and gave in to watching it. I already have projects pending for when I have some free time and me time of other things that I have to take care of so reading/watching Outlander for myself is something I may or may not get around to but given the discussion it has generated it will probably be on my radar. But thank you for the comment and if I do get around to reading/watching it for myself, I will likely be weighing in.

I was excited about Outlander so I did some reading on it and it turns out that there are a lot of things about it that are not ok. I may pass on this one. Will have to see.

I will decide later. I have to resume my hiatus but will be back in September! The queue is in effect though.

Until then, I hope you are able to catch some good period drama!

Sincerely,
PeriodDramarama

I finally got to watch the series premiere of this show which I shouldn’t have watched since I am limited on time right now. It was good. I’m hooked but I don’t have starz. I will have to wait until it comes out to watch the series.

Thoughts on the series?
