'Outlander' Coming to TV  
Apparently, STARZ is making 'Outlander' into a TV series. I know the idea has been tossed around on and off over the years, but it seems it's for real this time. Here's hoping whoever they cast as Jamie is actually Scottish. I'm not current with young actors that might fit the role -- anyone have casting thoughts?

So here's where I possibly date myself here, but what's Outlander? /o\

Not dating yourself, the books are still being written :) Outlander was the title of the first book and that's the overall name of the series. There's 7 so far, number 8 on the way. They're hard to classify, since it a mix of historical, time travel, romance, fantasy, science fiction.

From Amazon: The year is 1946. Claire Randall is a British ex-combat nurse on a postwar second honeymoon with her husband in the Scottish Highlands. Walking alone one afternoon, she passes through a circle of standing stones and is hurled back in time to a Scotland simmering with war in the year of our Lord 1743. Catapulted into an intrigue of rival clans and rising armies that threatens her life, she’s obliged to wed James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, as the only way to survive

They're awesome books, though I never made it past 6. I really like the 1st ones best. One of the things I love about the series is that it deals with what happens when you try to change the future.
