Prime Time Sci Fi TV: Outlander Debuts on STARZ

By | August 2, 2014

Outlander-Starz-CancelledNew or notable science fiction and fantasy entries on the Prime Time TV schedule, also including programs that may be of interest to genre fans. Air dates and times subject to change.

Giving us a needed respite from last week’s storm of cheesy shark sci fi from Syfy, this week is mostly business as usual with the exception of the premiere of Outlander on STARZ.  That series comes to us from BSG‘s Ronald Moore and delivers a sci fi/histrorical drama about a 20th century nurse who travels back into time to 18th Century Scotland and gets caught up in the political intrigue and romance of the era.  It is based on the Outlander series of novels by Diana Gabaldon.  Lifetime’s Witches of East End gets preempted this week, but returns on August 10th with a new episode.  And for those looking for Nick’s Legend of Korra, that one will air the rest of its third season episodes online, but it has not been cancelled (allegedly).
