here. In reality, there were several spanking scenes described in the book, and it was a pretty good read, albeit unbelievable and a bit long-winded in places.
Now we are into season two, and the show isn't quite as gripping. The first episode began with Claire having somehow returned to the present, trying to adjust to life in the 1940s, and ended with her back in the past with Jamie as they step off the ship in France.
The theme of this season is to try to deter Bonnie Prince Charlie from returning to Scotland, thus preventing the disastrous battle of Culloden that the Jacobites would lose. Frankly, I am not enjoying season two as much as I had hoped. It seems tedious and less interesting than season one, and even less believable, if that can be possible. So I wonder if there is any point in continuing to watch the series.
What about you? How do you feel about the show now? For those of you who have read the books, is there any more spanking in any of them, or did Gabaldon exhaust her repertoire for corporal punishment in the first book?
