Do not be discouraged in Season 3
on December 31, 2017
Everyone who complains about Season 3 not being as good, are book readers who forget that the Starz series is based on the books...but do not follow the books 100%. As a fan of the books since 1992, I am very pleased and immensely thankful for the WONDERFUL job Starz has done.
Sometimes the written word does not translate well to the screen. With large books (the only kind Diana Gabaldon knows how to write!) something will have to be cut or condensed in order to film it. Do I wish that Starz had an infinite budget to film the books in more detail? Sure! But as long as it takes to film what they do film, I do not think that wish is practical in any degree.
Starz works hard to stay true to the period and the characters. I am not disappointed but I remain grateful that I have the books to flush out anything that needs more detail.
Do not miss out on Season 3 because of the few who must criticize that the series is not the books. Enjoy the series for what it is. Enjoy the books for what they are. Together you will find joy!
