    There’s still plenty to recommend in the fourth go-round of the popular Starz epic, including but not limited to its predictably lush cinematography, uniformly excellent costuming and production design, and performances that range from solid to remarkable. There’s also a hell of a good yarn to be spun.

    Outlander Season 4 is more interesting to watch when they have a purpose and a goal in mind.

    Balfe and Heughan have been playing these characters for so long that their chemistry now feels as natural as breathing, and the show knows how to lay in just the right amount of tenderness without things getting overly sappy.

    In short, this season of Outlander is still highly Outlander-y, which will be heartening for its many fans to hear. But it’s also not without moments that drag and some choppy narrative transitions.

    War looming over these episode threatens to recycle plot points in a new setting. The spark of a good season is still there. The passion could use rekindling. [2 Nov 2018, p.46]

    Nothing feels quite right--the dialogue is stilted, the editing is distracting, and the amount of B-roll of bald eagles is overwhelming (it’s America, we get it). ... The season does get better as it progresses, as the show also starts pulling together threads from seasons past that make for satisfying and occasionally thrilling reveals.

    Beautiful first meeting between father and daughter. Happy family reunion, good chemistry mother and daughter between Claire and Brianna.Beautiful first meeting between father and daughter. Happy family reunion, good chemistry mother and daughter between Claire and Brianna. Problem is they shift from one topic to another too fast. The problem is the books are so rich in details, that it is difficult to adapt. But yet wonderful sight. Expand
