Sue’s Week In TV – Hits & Highlights

I tend to watch a lot of television through the week – and PVR a whole lot more. Here are some of the stand-outs from the past week, for me: Rizzoli & Isles:  Season 3, Episode 4 – Welcome To The Dollhouse The opening moments of this episode were some of the creepiest I’ve ever…

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…

Bomb Girls – Sue’s Letter

  I want to open this note with first an enormous thank you – to all of you – for the two seasons that you’ve given us of Bomb Girls, and for the 2 hour movie special that has been announced for 2014. I’ve been a fan and supporter of the show from Day One,…

Bomb Girls – Don’t Let Go

On every occasion, Tim does the heartfelt and wonderfully-worded write-ups to each of our our beloved Bomb Girls episodes.  So close to the end, now, I feel it is only proper that he should also do the final two posts of the series.  However, upon learning yesterday that our girls will not see a Season…

Bomb Girls S02E09 – Something Fierce

  Strong women pushing the barriers society constrains them with, both then and now, is the theme for this week’s episode of Bomb Girls. Lorna (Meg Tilly) finds herself unwitting thrust into the limelight and controversy when Dottie Shannon (Rosie O’Donnell) a reporter who used to make a living writing about recipes and knitting, is…

Bomb Girls S02E07 – Party Line

  August of 1940, Dieppe. 6086 Canadian soldiers supported by the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force spilled onto the north coast of France for Operation Jubilee… Almost 4000 were killed, wounded or captured, and a retreat was forced. That is what is happening in the ETO this week, as Bomb Girls returns, in…

Anastasia Phillips

Sue and I have been very fortunate in our association with Bomb Girls, and we’re incredibly thankful for the access we’ve been given to the show’s creators, cast and crew. Honestly, it just makes us love the show more and more. So we were delighted that we finally had an opportunity to chat with Anastasia…

Bomb Girls S02E06 – Where There’s Smoke

  I’d like to say that I didn’t post my Bomb Girls review yesterday because I was still wrecked by the episode, but life got in the way, and I didn’t have a chance to post it until now. That being said, it’s an incredibly strong episode to leave us begging for more as there’s…

Bomb Girls S02E04 – Guests of Honour

  One of the best shows on television continues to call it like it is, refusing to pull their punches, making sure that the characters that inhabit this recreation of 1940s Toronto are suitable reflections of real-life. There is no good guy or bad guy, they are all painted in shades of grey, and we…

Bomb Girls S02E03 – The Enemy Within

  This was a tough episode. Not that it was hard to watch, or anything of that sort, I mean emotionally tough. It could very well have been called Sacrifices, because we see that each of our characters, and even our nation made sacrifices to get through the war. Losing none of the momentum that…

Current TV Shows I Most Enjoy – Part I

I was going to try and come up with a clever title or gimmick for this, like Sue’s Top 12 of 2012, or something.  But I didn’t want to restrict myself with a number, and the fact is, one of the reasons we started the Mind Reels was because we felt that things we loved…

Bomb Girls: Episode 5 – Armistice

In watching this episode of Bomb Girls, I was thinking perhaps a sub-title was needed under this week’s title – this is the price we pay. I’m not talking in terms of comeuppance or karma, I’m referring simply to what we pay in lives and emotions, in response to war. And this week, they pull…
