We are in love with Men In Kilts! It took us a few weeks to get over these two friends, aka Sam and Graham, taking us around Scotland with their Kilts and natural sympathy. We are still trying to get over them, if we are honest. Do you feel the same? Well, let’s talk about Men In Kilts.
Here we go!
Men In Kilts offers just what it gives. These are two friends who met doing Outlander and they try to show us a little about Scotland, its landscapes and the most typical stuff from the area, from food to dances to sports. And all that remains for you to find out (like the history of the clans, the legends, the struggle for independence) promises that each episode will be better than the last.
This show is made to appeal to Outlander fans … and they don’t hide it. This is why we see a few clips of Outlander scenes from time to time. And we are glad that they are clear about this, we like it, because they are sincere in their intentions … and we believe that this project can precisely conquer Outlander fans, but also delight those who don’t know that show but have always loved Scotland or have curiosity about it.
Men In Kilts is like a tourist guide to Scotland … but much better. Normally, the programs on a tourist destination are usually too short or so long that they become too boring. Men In Kilts has just the right amount of history and explanation on what we are seeing, and a lot of action.
That is, we see in action, through Sam and Graham, just what they are explaining to us and that makes it more enjoyable. It’s not something theoretical, we really see what they are showing us. That makes it fun and different. Time flies, without us noticing.
Personally, Scotland seems like a magical land to me. Outlander made me fall in love with it and I confess that I have read many romance novels set in Scotland because I believe that its Highlands, its legends, its history, its mystery, all the spilled blood, the history of the clans and their way of life, of romantic heroes capable of everything for their land … everything invites you to do so. To imagine a love story among those inhospitable mountains.
Sam and Graham are making me learn much more about these lands and I love them even more because we know their history, their culture, their people … we just get fully into the magic that only Scotland can offer us, in a fun and educational way.
Also, Sam and Graham are friends, they are family and it shows that they are in this together until the end. Their jokes and complicity are noticeable, so Men In Kilts feels like a conversation between friends, as if Sam and Graham are inviting us to visit Scotland with them every week. And honestly, there is no better way to end the week than with these two showing us their homeland and letting us enter a little more into their lives as we explore their roots.
Sam and Graham are our perfect travel guides.
