Oh, dear heaven above! I thought it was just me. There are times I am picky, moody, and downright cranky at my age. However, the last few episodes of Outlander have not held my attention.
After looking inwardly to see if some hormonal imbalance had affected my judgment, I visited the Period Drama Appreciation group on Facebook. Alas, lass, I’m not alone!

NOTE: Interesting that none of the Outlander stars were nominated, though they did get nominated as a show for costume design and production design. I would have thought that Tobias Menzies deserved a nomination for his dastardly portrayal of Jack Randall.
Okay, all you time-traveling lasses. Your fix continues.
