MOP Video: Episode 512 - "Never My Love" RECAP



My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the SEASON FINALE of Season 5 of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment of the final episode of Season 5, including the fabulousness that was every ounce of Claire’s 60s midcentury modern dream sequence; why young JAMMF was just the right memory for Claire; what 60s Murcasta has in common with the SNL Lovahs; why 60s Ian broke our hearts; why “Never My Love” is our new earworm for life; why warpaint Ian excited us to death; why having the Browns take the lead on the kidnapping of Claire didn’t work so much for us; how JAMMF doing some modern day dancing gave us all the feels; why Roger has never been hotter than when he pledged his troth to JAMMF; how we mourned the loss of the bodhran and the Gaelic (and why it speaks to the fact that the show has lost some of its Scottishness); the greatness that was Ian’s badass, warpainted, tomahawk-tossing self and Fergus taking down guys with one hand; what Jamie meant by “kill them all” if they didn’t really kill them all; why Bree might want to be a little worried by Claire’s feelings toward Marsali; why Claire’s “I Will Survive” scene is Emmy-worthy; why Carol thinks Roger ruined the time traveling by thinking about the Stay-Puft marshmallow man; why Marsali is more badass than any of the dudes who saved Claire; why we CAN’T wait for the JAMMF/Richard Brown confrontation that has to be coming next season; why JAMMF’s reading of the last line of The Fiery Cross was so successful; what might be in store for season 6 (and whether David Berry’s Lord John is REALLY as done as he says); and MUCH, MUCH MORE!!

My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the latest episode of Season 5 of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment (and then some), including how the fact that we’re not in Scotland has made us especially depressed (and a bit drunker); why we’re just realizing now that Ross Poldark is gone for good; why season 4 was a much better look on Stephen Bonnet (as opposed to this season’s mustache-twirling psycho boy); why we missed Ian’s mad Mohawk skillz; how we felt about the glass guy; the remarkable feat of committing Moby Dick to memory (let alone reading it); why Stephen Bonnet is arguably an antihero; why the idea of a Stephen Bonnet pining for his lost child makes us gag; why OUR Stephen Bonnet is NOT crazy; what the whole Bonnet/Bree storyline had in common with Little House on the Prairie (and OMG Michael Landon: hot AF); what it would have been like if Bree had taught Bonnet to read instead; whether this whole “I want the Brady Bunch life” thing was a ruse on Bonnet’s part or not (Carol says yes, Tracey says HELL no); why Philip Wylie is Carol’s new boyfriend; why Duncan and Jocasta’s relationship is questionable; why Bonnet and the lady buyer would have gotten away with it too if it weren’t for those meddling Frasers; and MUCH, MUCH MORE!!

"A Letter to our Community" - City Tavern Chef Walter Staib

Wanted to share the following community email I received this AM from Walter Staib, Chef at City Tavern in Philadelphia...and star of A Taste of History on PBS. 

My Outlander Purgatory is not affiliated with City Tavern in any way. I just love them and have a ton of respect for what they do. I had a phenomenal experience there with Tom and the kids on Mother's Day weekend in 2017, and I will cherish it forever. I can't wait to go back and I hope you all get to experience it sometime in the near future, too. ❤️ 


A Letter to our Community:

I wanted to take a moment and extend my heartfelt best wishes for health to our community in these unsettling times and recognize the brave men and women on the front lines of the medical field. While these times are challenging for any business, it is important that we all follow the guidelines of our Government leaders and “Stay-at-Home”.

I have worked tirelessly over my lifetime in recreating an atmosphere at City Tavern that brings the world a unique view of the cuisine of 18th century life. It is so easy to think of our Founding Fathers as abstract concepts of Liberty and Freedom and to forget that they were walking and breathing human beings that existed, in many ways, as we do now. Needless to say, the founders faced many challenges in their own lives, but they persisted, and we became a better nation through it. I have no doubt, that we will come together and defeat this horrible virus.

When that day comes, City Tavern will be here for you, as it was for our Forefathers when they needed a hot meal or cold brew after deliberating the Declaration of Independence. Food is often our great comforter.

With an understanding of the difficult times we are all in, I ask only if you are able, to “Buy it Forward” and purchase a gift card for later use, to show your support and help our business during these turbulent times.

Gift Cards may be purchased online or using the button below. 

I thank you in advance.

MOP Video: Season 5, Episode 507 "The Ballad of Roger Mac" RECAP


My Outlander Purgatory's Carol and Tracey are back to recap the latest episode of Season 5 of Outlander, the Starz series based on Diana Gabaldon's best selling book series. Join us as we break down every moment of this AMAZING episode, including all things Coronapocalypse, including whether or not it can be used as a diet (sorry y’all for THAT tangent, but it’s unavoidable these days…fast forward to around minute 13 if you just can’t take it); the tour de force performance that Sam Heughan delivers; the send-off that Murtaugh deserved all along; the ill-advised timing of that “Previously on” segment with Bonnet throwing the ill overboard; why Rog should be worried every time he looks at Jem; Jamie Fraser’s words to live by; why Claire’s words to the Browns would have sent MOP Tom OFF. THE. EDGE; why Jamie is soooorrrrrta responsible for Murtaugh’s end; why cutting his hand a few hours before wielding a gun may be a second bad decision for JAMMF; why social distancing was probably a good idea for Roger; why Tryon’s present to Jamie KILLED US (AND makes JAMMF’s butt look HUGE); which one of us recognized the identity of Buck and which did not; why Claire’s Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ TOTALLY worked; why Edward Cullen was sorely needed in this episode (and which Outlander character would make the best vampire); who Duncan LaCroix will come back as; the fantasticness that is that last JAMMF/Tryon scene; how JAMMF’s actions were like Salma Hayek’s during the Harvey Weinstein years; how skipping an Outlander episode next week is cruel and unusual punishment; and MUCH MUCH MORE!!
