What’s Buzz-worthy: This award-winning series is Amazon’s most-streamed show and the historical time-travel tale is one that has a big fan base that’s been known to chase its cardboard — and Season 2 is here starting today to help feed that frenzy. This box, like most from Cryptozoic, delivered an entire base set and full insert sets for three found in the release along with a number of parallels of different types that focus on the arrival of Claire and Jamie Fraser in 18th-century France. The visual variety here worked well — some releases have inserts that feel like base cards — and the parallels are simple but they work. We got one numbered insert here, which is not the norm in every box, along with everything else that should be found in a box based on the odds. The auto is a rarer inscription from Sophie Skelton, who plays the daughter of the leads, while the memorabilia card is from a key villain in the season. All in all, this box felt like it delivered pretty well.
