    I haven't read the books and the premise doesn't sound that interesting, but with Moore's involvement, I am looking forward to see how this turns out.

    Story really doesn't sound terribly appealing.... Hope Moore can make it so.

    Still pissed 17th Precinct didn't happen.

    You aren't the only one Sawyer. I've been trying to find the pilot they filmed forever now

    Landed at Starz

    On one hand, love RDM and Starz can use a creative mind like his to go along with Steven S. DeKnight. On the other, this still doesn't sound interesting to me.

    Then again, he made a reboot of a campy '70s Star Wars ripoff into one of the best shows I've ever seen, so who knows...

    Great that it was acquired by a network. The plot still doesn't excite me, but I do admit that I'm a bit intrigued by the time‐travel premise. Interested to see how this turns out.

    I'm just delighted that Moore is finally working on a post-BSG project after having been shopping a lot of projects around and ultimately some went further than others, like 17th Precinct but it still didn't get picked up, so can't wait for him to be able to use his magic again. It's been sorely missed these past few years.

    When I first heard of this I thought it was based on the 2008 movie outlander. Which would of been awesome this not so much.

    It has received a series order, consists of 16 (!) episodes instead of the usual 8 or 10 of Starz's shows.

    Damn, I knew the series was popular but not in a 20 millions copies sold worldwide way, that ain't bad at all, also it's good that they'll be shooting in Scotland where the series are set.

    Starz means they can do sex and nudity.

    All the good creators are going to cable and premium now folks. David Goyer says the experience and support he's gotten for Da Vinci's Demons has put him off network TV for good.

    It is too bad Legend of the Seeker/Sword of Truth didn't get on Starz, it might've lasted longer.

    Actors from Rome/GOT is always a good thing, so :up:. I'm still excited over the prospect that it'll get 16 episodes, can't complain at all considering RDM's involvement.

    When does this premiere?

    I just bought the first book on my kindle for $1.99. Ill start it after I finish another book I'm reading. Does the series stay good or does it get weaker as it goes along?
