Us ABOotlanders always get excited when we get news regarding our obsession. The W Network in Canada has scooped Outlander from Showcase. We won’t pretend we aren’t excited about that. W is already doing a better job of promoting Outlander . We are keeping our fingerscrossed they entertain our #OutlanderCAN hashtag – as we all know, we had trending a time or ten. Especially when Caitriona tweeted to us on season 2 premiere night. Not that… you know…I keep track or anything. *whistling*
The last 2 seasons of Outlander #ABOotlanders have been tweeting furiously during the show with our followers. It’s great but if we do it every week, we start cramping up a lil.
We have decided instead of a Live Tweet with the show we will guide a Recap of each episode after they air in Canada. Sunday nights…starting on Sept 10th… 9 pm E/P – check your local listtings for times.
Warning: There will be commercials. It was discussed for a time, since the US and Canada would be airing the same time, to live tweet together. Well….that won’t work out since we will be waiting to see the latest commercial advertisments. P.S. W Network…can you just play this one over and over
Unless of course you can get Barbour commercials. Cuz their spokesman is my future husband. (Don’t tell the one I have had for 25 yrs)
I don’t complain about commercials anyway. They are important while watching a show like this for the following reasons:
- Drying your tears and catching your breath before the next round of tears starts
- Process all the goodness that just happened and beat the crap out of who ever is watching with you squeeling “OH MY GAWD! Did you see that? EEEEEEEEEEEE” (my friend said she does that. *eyeroll*)
- Get a drink because shedding tears causes dehyration
- Take a bathroom break. Best to watch Outlander with an empty bladder. It can get crazy and the ole pee bag might not be up to the task.
- Tweet for the 3 minutes to let everyone know how awesome you are…ummm… it is.
After the final credits roll there will be #ABOotlanders from all over Alberta taking part in an episode breakdown. Probably just being insane and random but *shrug* what the hell…we are gonna give it a go!
We will be having premiere parties in Edmonton, Calgary and Lethbridge. We are gonna dress up in 60’s awesomeness and posting pictures under the #OutlanderCAN tag. We hope our fellow Nutlanders will join us.
Following up each episode with a blog post has been a thing for us. I know I know…another one! We have done recaps, we have done randomness. This year we will be having some real fun with our blog…while supporting the artists, bloggers and fans of the Outlander community. The world is a better place when we are kind to one another.
So….THANK you W Network for taking Outlander on! Voyager has been my favourite book of the series for many many years. We are excited about playin with you!
