Outlander: Season One, Volume Two (2014 - 2015/Sony Collector's Edition Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B+ Episodes: B

This second half of Starz's hit new series, Outlander, explodes onto Blu-ray with another exceptionally packaged Blu-ray package release. If you haven't seen the show yet, it's a bit more romantic than Game Of Thrones and features a cool time-traveling story line. As mentioned above, this is volume two of the first season so be sure to catch the first part before tackling these or you may be lost (elsewhere on this site).

Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire's heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

The British-American drama is based on a series of novels (all the best ones are!) by Diana Gabaldon. The costumes and production design are top notch and this show is full of cool characters and action that I would definitely check out if you are a fan of fantasy films like The Hobbit or even the recent time bender Age of Adeline (also reviewed elsewhere on this site).

Presented in 1080p high definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a powerful, lossless DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 track, the presentation here is top notch.

Extras include...

Collectible 3D artwork with the packaging that's very cool along with a Digibook-type case that looks the way a Blu-ray set like this should look. (Thank you, Starz!)

A 32 page book full of photographs and linear notes
