As a major television viewer, I know what I like to see on my television screen. I like action, adventure, suspense, intrigue, drama and romance. I like to be blown away and mesmerized by what is playing out on my TV screen each week. Outlander has that in spades and then some, which brings me to the reason for this post. We are asking for the powers that be to consider nominating Outlander for ‘Outstanding Drama Series’.
I imagine it’s not easy to make an television adaptation from a very popular,well known and beloved book series and have it mean something special to those fans. Outlander,the TV series not only hooked an already loyal fan base but picked up quite a few more fans along it’s 16 episode inaugural run.
I have watched many book to TV adaptations, and hands down, Outlander is the best out there. It simply doesn’t fit into just one genre, it is multi-faceted, and not afraid to delve into the roughest, and most daring parts of the storylines in it’s book counterpart.
I am not what one could consider a professional critic but as I said I know what I love to watch, and Outlander would have my vote to be nominated for an Emmy in the category of ‘Outstanding Drama Series’. Every day of the week and twice on Sunday! I hope it has yours as well.
