the extensive Season Two. Following the French couple Jamie
(a Scottish warrior) and Claire Randall (a 1945 combat nurse who was
in the last season sent back to the year 1743) - both of which have
the intention of infiltrating the Jacobrite rebellion which is led by
Prince Charles Stuart. This season ups the ante with superb
production values and costume design. even if it does get a little
soap opera-ish along the way. Heavy on politics, romance, some time
traveling, and the preservation of the Scotts - this season will
attract some and repel others.
