Outlander is Many Kinds Of Show, Under One Kilt” per Time.com’s James Poniewozik.
He has viewed the first six episodes (Starz has not released any more). In the review a few things non-readers of the series do not know. Might be a spoiler or few.
He, has only viewed the series without reading the book series. Though he thought it was a bit unclear where the story is going, he did enjoyed the adventure, intrigue, Claire’s modernity, the scenery, storytelling, characters, and “writery” writing.
I agree it is a worthwhile watch and will be a hit!
