We’ll be recapping every episode of Outlander this season, both in blog post AND podcast. Kendra and Sarah will be focusing mostly on the costumes — designed by Terry Dresbach — in our blog posts, but probably tackling both the costumes and the story itself in our podcasts.
Aaaand… you guessed it. Kendra is about to fly home from London, Sarah is in New Orleans, and we suck. So, no podcast this week! We promise to be back with an extra-long podcast next week recapping both episodes 9 and 10!
For those who aren’t regular Frock Flicks readers: this blog and podcast is all about costumes in historical movies and TV shows, and we approach things from the angle of history. So, expect us to be talking about the costumes primarily from the point of view of comparison with the real history of the 1740s. We’ll also talk about costume in terms of story, and the deviations that come with this one having the fantasy element of time travel. But, know that when we talk about that dreaded phrase “historical accuracy,” we’re not doing it to be mean or judgy. It’s just one lens through which to watch this fabulous show.
This was a super boy-riffic episode in terms of costumes — lots of extras wearing really great wooly, distressed outfits while hanging out in their Highland army camp. No doubt I missed some of the costumes, and sadly I’m not going to have tons to say other than “nice layers! good distressing! very realisitic!”
Thanks to Kiss Them Goodbye for the screen caps!
Give us all your thoughts on this episode, and we promise to be all your’s again as of next week!
