    Who’s watching this new season? Buzz seems to have significantly dwindled after the weak end to last season but this premiere was a very solid episode of television that climaxed with one of the most spectacular set pieces of the season. Balfe and Heughan’s chemistry remains flawless.

    Weak end? This is the first time that I see this opinion, it had great reviews and it was loved by the fans in Facebook and also in IMDB – 9.3, I also loved it, it was emotional and action packed.

    I watched the premier of season 4 yesterday and also loved it, it had it all. Maybe the buzz dwindled, because I think that there is a little bit of saturation of good TV, there is so much to see and so little time, at least for me, I sleep very little to watch things, because I am very busy socially and professionally most of the days, and even with that I needed one week to catch up with the premier.

    The great reviews bit is questionable but yes I am definitely in the minority opinion versus hardcore fans of this show. That said, I know many people who stopped watching regularly a couple of episodes after they reunited so maybe a slow decline better represents the buzz than a weak end necessarily

    I do not think that if someone really liked the show would stop watching it because of any episode of season 3. There are some people that gets frustrated by the constant change of scenario and themes in the show, but for me this is his best quality.

    At least 2 of my friends were obsessed in season 2 before dropping it in season 3.

    My opinion is almost completely different. The show changing setting has only ever worked once and that was Paris. Both the Carribbean and now American excursions have been based upon weak narrative whims that came out of nowhere rather than being part of a season arc. To be honest the lack of arc in general is what is hurting the show most at the moment for me. I have no idea where the show is going compared to how season 1A, 1B, 2 and the first half of 3 all had arcs that built on the previous rather than being “Diana Gabaldon went here so we must do so” which is what it has been since Jamie and Claire reunited. As much as I can appreciated episodic television it’s not what I valued from this show.

    Yeah, we disagree completely. But I can see your point, maybe your friends felt the same way. But then this show is not for you, I suppose that you know that this is how the books work as well and is the favorite part of the book fans and of the hardcore fans, I have not read the books and would not describe myself as hardcore fan, but here I agree with them. I did not like season 2 very much, it felt pointless. For me season 3 is far superior. I liked very much the first two episodes of season 4. The show will always going to be like the books, there is no straight story-line, we are just witnessing the life of Jamie and Claire, which is crazy and messy. As non-book reader it was weird for me as well, for example, the fact that there are no supporting characters, they are constantly changing as well, was very strange, but I started to like it.
