    I so agree with the critiques you expressed in this podcast. Seeing it the first time, I felt guilty saying I was disappointed and was glad that as a reader I have the richness of the books to fall back on. Since this podcast, I have seen the episode a second time and already I understand it better and feel that many of my initial responses were validated. That said it has been a great ride and I look forward to Season 2. I just hope the EMMYS recognize this terrific production and its cast.


  2. Thank you, Des, for this podcast. I did take Diana’s suggestion to put the book down while viewing this episode. My heart still yearned for a better balance of the light & dark. As a book reader I knew where this episode was going, but it was better & worse to see it in all its visual horror. I knew that love would conquer all & that ultimately Claire would rescue Jamie from his descent into the bowels of hell. Kudos to all the actors for their brilliant performances. During my first time watching the episode I was cursing Randall almost continuously & that’s not my natural reaction to things. I’m grateful that Ron & his team put in the confession scene with Claire because it addresses her guilt & mirrors slightly Jamie’s need for confession as well. It’s hard to reconcile how I see book Claire in these scenes (from her POV) & show Claire. I need to think about that more. Looking forward to spending Droughtlander listening to your podcasts. Thanks for all that you do. XX
