The seventh episode of season one is basically an entire episode of sex, and it's just as delicious as it sounds.
Raunchy sex scenes may set audiences’ hearts racing in the comfort of their cinema seats, but the reality for those starring in them is far from a glamourous turn-on.
It helps that the show's stars Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are basically supermodels.
On the show, the actors' characters Jamie and Claire get married to avoid Claire's incarceration.
The first two episodes debuted on Direc TV, Time Warner Cable On Demand, Netflix, Verizon Fi OS On Demand, Internet Movie Database and on the website of the series before the official premiere on Showtime.
It’s all about camera angles, you have to recreate the moment so many times.

La série est coproduite par Peace Arch Entertainment et TM Productions, en association avec la Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (réseau anglais de la SRC) et Showtime Networks.
Elle a reçu un investissement de l'Irish Film Industry fourni par le gouvernement de l'Irlande.
