It’s back, Sassenachs! Last night held the inaugural edition of Hangoutlander here at The Cool Table, and we jumped right into the fifth book in the Outlander series, The Fiery Cross.
If you love Outlander, if you are looking forward to season 5, if you are dying to remember wtf even happened in TFC and was The Gathering really that long … join us the next several weeks for Hangoutlander.
Welcome to Hangoutlander!
Watch the whole broadcast right here, or jump through the major sections of our discussion in the links below. And don’t forget to subscribe to our very new YouTube channel so you’ll get notified the next time we go live!
At 1:00, we introduce ourselves and say how long it’s been since we read The Fiery Cross for the first time.
Our first question of the conversation deals with whether or not TFC is worth the read. Should show-watchers bother? Why did it take us so long to get through it the first time?
We list off the moments in Part One where Diana jumps out … the Diana-isms that make you roll your eyes, hard.
Why do we love Jamie SO MUCH? (This conversation is exactly as fangirly as you expect it to be).
We introduce a new segment called Why Diana Why (did you describe that in such detail).
We end with Wish on Waterweed: What would you take directly from the book to the screen if you had the power?
Join us next week for a look through Parts 2, 3 and 4 of The Fiery Cross. I’m pretty sure the microscope stuff is in there somewhere!

She took 3 years of Latin in high school and now speaks fluent pretension, which fully explains her current preference for gay wizard regency novels. She will roll over for a giant book with a map in the front. She takes comic book recommendations every day but Wednesday and TV recommendations never (she knows what's good).
