I am amazed that no one has made a thread about this show yet.
I've recently finished watching it and I was completely blown away. Not only is the story beautifully composed, it's also one of the most believable time-travel scenarios I've seen. It makes it seem true. And it also manages to put a lot of information and a lot of 'happening' into each episode without it feeling crammed or rushed. I feel that's a real skill on the part of the director. I also heard that it stayed pretty close to the source material, which I like. I am going to read the books now and it really made me interested in Scotland and their history. Very good show.
I also found that I like the villain even. I mean, I hated him to bits of course, but I loved it when he was there, because he was never dull or predictable.
Has anyone else watched it? (surely there must be many XD )
Did you like it? What did you like best/least?
