On the Set Video: Outlander Stars Think Jamie and Claire Are TV's Greatest Love Story

Outlander may often be characterized as an epic adventure series spanning centuries, but at the heart of the narrative is something quite simple: the love story of two people thrown together in an effort to survive.  

"Here's this couple that does fall in love through a set of circumstances, but they remain devoted to one another," executive producer Ronald D. Moore tells TVGuide.com. "It becomes a story of a one-on-one relationship that lasts a very long time, which is unusual and interesting to play in a television series where it's usually about who's sleeping with who and will they or wont they. This is just about these two people who have this fundamental commitment to each other."

Outlander Video: Star, Showrunner Deconstruct Filming That Flogging Scene

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Saturday's Outlander. Read at your own risk.]

Outlander has reached one of many pivotal moments from the first book on which it's based, but even if you knew what was coming, Saturday's episode was still hard to watch.

The hour began with Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Dougal (Graham McTavish) coming face-to-face with the Red Coats, and our leading lady assuring them that she had been with the MacKenzie clan willingly. Still, Claire had to convince another man of her motives: Jack Randall (Tobias Menzies), the man who almost raped her when she first fell through the stones at Craigh na Dun.

Weekend Review: The Knick, Outlander

Cinemax, the scruffy bastard stepchild of HBO, is the perfect home for Steven Soderbergh's harrowing hospital melodrama The Knick (Friday, 10/9c), which depicts 1900s New York City as a vivid Dickensian nightmare. Though described by the series' severely flawed doctor hero John Thackery (a ravaged and mustachioed Clive Owen) as "a time of endless possibility," this Age of Progress has its limitations, with primitive ...

On the Set: Outlander Finally Comes to Life on Starz

Step onto the set of new Starz drama Outlander, deep in the countryside north of Glasgow, and it's easy to relate to series heroine Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe), a married, English World War II combat nurse suddenly — and mysteriously — thrust back in time to strife-torn 1743 Scotland.

Kilt-clad men and corseted women mingle in the smoky candlelight. Two Irish wolfhounds loll by a massive, blackened fireplace as snippets of Gaelic drift through the stale castle air. And when director John Dahl yells, "Action!" Claire watches in horror as... read more

Binge Saturday: Battlestar Galactica

With fall premieres still a month away, now's the perfect time to play TV catch-up or simply revisit an old favorite.

A reboot of the '70s space opera, Ron Moore's re-imagined Battlestar Galactica is a science-fiction masterpiece. It blends action, religion, grief, hope — and some killer cheekbones — into one heck of a gripping saga. Yes, the ending might be controversial, but it's not like Lost's.
