    I'm okay with that.
  2. Yes, I think they also discussed Jamaica, too. In their place, I would be really leery of going through unfamiliar portals. Were they stones or was it a pool of water in a cave? I speed-read through that part of the book because it's both creepy and maddening.
  3. Are you talking about the book or the show? Because in the book, they discussed that very thing but ruled it out because of timing. They didn't know yet about the stones in America so Bree would have had to sail back to Scotland, find her way to the stones and go through. Ships don't sail in winter. By the time she got a ship and got over to Scotland, she would either be cutting it super close or it would be too late, I don't exactly remember. So it's not like DG completely glossed over the possibility. The idea was considered and then rejected.
  4. Really. Why is that so hard to believe? I should know how I feel about the characters and I think Jamie acts like an ass on multiple occasions during these... events. I'm not one of the people that buys into that King of Men schtick. I'm sorry that I (and countless others) disagree with you (and countless others) on how Roger's character comes off in the show but there it is. We're just going to have to agree to disagree. No one is going to change anyone's mind.
  5. Um, no. My feelings about Roger's portrayal have nothing to do with Jamie. This isn't a zero sum game - there is plenty of blame to go around during the Great Misunderstanding and Jamie deserves all that he gets. Honestly, this wasn't really a good look for any of them, not even Claire.
  6. You're giving him a break because you know Roger from the books. But the fact that so many non-book readers think that Roger is weak and helpless means that the show has failed in its portrayal of him. Roger is extremely unpopular out there in the world. If the only Roger I knew was from the show I wouldn't be all that impressed with him, either. Yeah, he makes a couple of brave decisions but overall, he really does seem kinda pathetic.

    So these threads are no longer labeled with their book talk status. Or am I missing something?
  8. Well, the show did turn him into a prudish, slut-shaming asshole, so maybe that's what they were going for.

    A lot of people answered that question in the comments, but tread warily if you are sensitive because the comments are very critical of almost everything except Murtagh & Jocasta.

    The producers said that they were basically going to ignore weather. It's a variable they can't control and they will never get NC weather in Scotland anyway so they didn't even try. But excellent point!

    And her shoes were probably weird, too. Were they making left and right-shaped shoes yet in 1770? I would have tripped over a petticoat and gone sprawling.

    "Microwaved Bee Gee" cracked me up.

    Well, considering that the stupid gathering lasts forever, it still seems "down the line." But my point stands. We were expecting maybe marriage, but not really a proper love affair. Now that it looks like we might have a proper love affair, I'm tickled by it.

    People were prepared for him to marry her down the line, not hook up with her out of the blue. Although, there has been chemistry between them every time they met this season so there was definitely groundwork laid.

    They were specifically clothes. Ian mentions to Brianna that there are trunks of clothes that she can wear and have. I mean, yes, it's a fantasy show, but a lot of thought was given to working out and/or showing how it is feasible that they dress the way that they do.
