What's new on the tube tonight:

Outlander (Starz) Series Debut: A married World War II nurse (Caitriona Balfe) is mysteriously transported from 1945 to 1743 in the Scottish Highlands, where's she's held captive by hunky Scottish warriors in an even more patriarchal, misogynistic society than the '40s. Outlander, based on a best-selling book series, is equal parts romance, sci-fi, history and bodice-ripping ridiculousness—and, thanks Ronald D. Moore's (Battlestar Galactica) direction, probably the smartest and most female-friendly Starz series ever. Which isn't saying a hell of a lot, but good for you, Starz.

Why wait? Watch the Outlander premiere right here:
