Outlander - Faces 19 & 20

Last night, Himself was flipping through channels and found Starz was running a free preview. If that wasn't good news enough, Outlander based on Diana Gabaldon's series had the first 6 episodes.

In 1945, Claire Beauchamp Randall is on her second honeymoon in Scotland. Claire's husband, Frank, is involved in a genealogy search about a relative, Black Jack Randall, a British army captain in Scotland around the time of the Uprising.

Bored, Claire goes to a standing stone ring called Craigh Na Dun to collect herbs and wildflowers. A storm breaks suddenly, Claire braces her hand on one of the stones while the world turns upside down. When she comes to, Claire finds herself back in time in the year 1743 where she meets Jamie Fraser, a young highlander.

The book series is riveting (there are 9 books so far) and the Starz dramatization doesn't disappoint. I also found out you can watch online at Starz
