Canadian Screen Awards Broadcast Gala

The hoopla and excitement from the past week has now died down, but Sue and I thought it would be nice to share a slew of the pictures we took from the Broadcast Gala in one post…We’ve shared a lot of these on Twitter and Facebook, but here they are all in one place… The…

The Mind Reels chats with Greg Nelson and Adrienne Mitchell – Played

Sue has been championing CTV’s new show Played to me since it has premiered. I’m a little behind, only being two epsiodes in, but I can already tell you that it’s intelligent, engaging, and features some fantastic acting. Produced by Back Alley films, which also oversaw our much loved Bomb Girls, Played is a procedural…

Bomb Girls – The Final Episode…

I’ve written about Bomb Girls since it started. Sue and I have interviewed Meg Tilly, Jodi Balfour, Charlotte Hegele, Ali Liebert, Michael Seater, Janis Lundman, Adrienne Mitchell, and Michael MacLennan. I’ve let these people and their creations into my life, and if I’m completely honest, into my heart. We’ve only spoken to them briefly, shared…

Bomb Girls S02E11 – Kings and Pawns

At this point, I am so glad I am a week behind on catching up on Bomb Girls, because currently, I am not ready to watch the final episode and say goodbye to the girls until who knows when. So knowing that I currently have one more episode to get through delights me to no…

Bomb Girls Letter

When we heard Bomb Girls was in jeopardy, both Sue and I, and countless fans all over the world rallied to their defense, to battle our own war, dreaming that we too could do our part!

On the Set – Bomb Girls

If the fire of excitement were to be transmuted into light, then Sue and I would be as stars in the firmament, turning night into day… We’d been invited for a¬†visit to the Bomb Girls set, and Sue and I were over the moon! Bomb Girls burst on the scene in January of this year,…

Happy 1st Birthday for The Mind Reels!

When I was younger, physically and chronologically, not mentally, I often thought about talking and working with people in the entertainment industry. I also thought about being a starship captain like James T. Kirk or walking with dinosaurs, but hey, one dream at a time. Growing up, I was not necessarily an outsider, but I…

Back Alley Films

We love Bomb Girls here at The Mind Reels, and we’ve been very lucky to interview a number of the creative folks who have been involved with it, Jodi Balfour, Ali Liebert, Charlotte Hegele, Meg Tilly, and Michael MacLennan. Now we can add two more wonderful people to that roster – co-creator/co-show runner/producer¬†of the series…
