DJ’s Review:
I cannot say this enough:  I am a sucker for time-travel shows.  It doesn’t matter if it is science fiction with machines, or supernatural using magic or some other unexplainable force.  Time travel, for whatever reason is fascinating to me.  Couple that with a good story line and gratuitous 18th century romance in the Scotland Highlands during the Jacobite uprisings, and we have a winner.
This series originated on Starz where it has run for six seasons so far with a seventh coming right around the corner.  It has been re-syndicated on Netflix, where the fifth season recently dropped.  I am just now finishing up season TWO, so I have quite a bit more to go.
