I was very skeptical when I first started watching Outlander but I have come to love it. I love it mainly for its gritty wholesomeness.
It shows flawed yet fundamentally caring and healthy people dealing with a series of raw and gritty challenges. And there is something wholesome in the best way in that. It reminds us of those sides of ourselves.
In that sense, it’s a bit like The Little House on the Prairie for grown-ups, and especially season four and five since they are set in North America.
I also like that it shows modern people in a time that was far more tribal and eye-for-eye, and how they adapt and learn to survive in that situation. They needed to find their warrior as we all sometimes do.
