That whole “the kilt drops” thing: I thought it was meant as sexy innuendo, until I realized it might also reference battle dress. Thoughts?

"MOOSE DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO THE BORDER so WHY DOES TV."
Henceforth, all US-Canada border issues will be responded to thusly: Moose don’t pay attention to the border, so why should we?!?

Outlander is going to play on Starz.
I do not have Starz.
I have other fancy channels, but adding this one would cost more money.
I do not have more money.
How am I going to watch Outlander?
eta: I have concerns about torrents. I’ve played the virus game in the past, and am now more cautious. I’m kind of hoping that, when the time comes, people will be able to point me toward trustworthy links.
Oh, to allow responses, I must end with a question mark. So… ?
Sam Heughan & Caitriona Balfe su We Heart It.
The chemistry between these two is what’s going to make the show.

I decided to look up the actual Frasers of Lovat, and found a great deal about the one shown above. It seems Simon Lovat, aka the 15th Lord Lovat, aka the highly decorated Brigadier General, was part of a commando unit during the Second World War. Among other actions, his unit seized codebooks for the German Enigma encryption machine, captured hundreds of German soldiers, and blew up a hell of a lot of stuff. The character based on him on the movie The Longest Day was played by Peter Lawford. He later got into politics.
(Also deserving of mention: Lovat had his personal piper, Bill Millin, aka Piper Bill, walk up and down the beach playing bagpipe music as the rest of the unit landed on D-Day. Millin didn’t object one bit to the fact that he was unarmed and drawing an immense amount of attention to himself. He just did it. German POW’s later claimed no one shot at him because they thought he was crazy.)

I feel like, for most Americans, Sarah Wayne Callies is the draw.
I am not most Americans.
Halfway through the first Outlander book. How old is Claire supposed to be? I’m guessing about 30. Am I wrong?
She’s is 27. says it somewhere in that 1st book
Yeah, I posted before I got to that point. :)
It also means she was only 19 when she married Frank.
Sam loves you btw
He is too pretty and it annoys me.

The “Speak Outlander” thing on youtube says it’s pronounced “Lee-ree”.
The book gives it as “L’heer”.
A general pronunciation guide I found says it’s more like “Lae-er”.
Okay, I know what’s happening here, and I know it’s not really sexy or anything, but DAMN.
