Outlander premiere dates UK and Canada  
Two other premiere dates announced yesterday. For viewers in the UK, season 2 of Outlander starts on Amazon Prime on April 10. For viewers in Canada (like myself), it will begin on Showcase, also on April 10 (if you get Showcase, which I don't).

ETA: New Zealand also gets it on April 10. Seems like Australia is the real outlier here, having to wait until the 25th!

And to get everyone's weekend off to a nice start, I thought I'd share this stunning photo of himself (or should that be Himself?) that Sam tweeted recently. If this doesn't warm you up on this cold February day, I don't know what will!

In Canada, it should also be up on Shomi rather soon after the airdate if people don't get Showcase.

Really? Because it took them a longish time to get the 2nd half of season 1 up on Shomi.

Anyway, I admit I torrent it because I don't want to wait. I then buy the Blu-rays when they're available to offset the torrenting (not that Starz would get any of the money if I shelled out for an upgraded cable package that included Showcase).

That is good to know!

Okay I adore you for posting that picture of Sam. Dang! Wow. I think Himself because it is a title. LOL

Also, I hope you are managing to see these episodes. I think I'll be buying into Starz on Amazon Prime because it is cheaper for me than adding it to my cable.

Also, I'll add these dates to the Events Calendar.

Sam -- yeah... The man is lovely to look at. And seems like a really, really nice guy too.

Amazon Prime isn't available in Canada (nor is Starz), so I freely admit I will be torrenting the episodes and then buying the series on Blu-ray when available.

However, on March 1, cable companies in Canada are supposed to start offering different options to consumers, including "build your own" packages. If I can use something like that to change my current cable package to include Showcase, without having to pay an additional $30/mth which is what I'd have to do now to get Showcase, I will certainly do so. But if not, I will stick with what I did for season 1.

That is the thing isn't it. I don't even know if the man is the type I would typically be so gaga over but he seems so nice and that just makes him so much hotter.

Stinks! But at least you are getting the show. Honestly, if I didn't have another option (that wasn't outrageously expensive) I would download too. What else can you do when you have little money and can't afford $30 or $40 just to watch one show.

That is interesting. I wish our Cable would do that.
