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 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! Petitions have sprung up everywhere, asking for signatures, impassioned pleas to those that could give us more of this…

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…

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 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…

Bomb Girls S02E02 – Roses Red

  Last week’s episode brought our best gals back to Victory Munitions, and reintroduced new viewers to the world of Bomb Girls. This week, as our characters are finding their ways back to who they are, and where they are supposed to be, we realize that even as things are coming together, and we’re seeing them as…

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…

Toronto After Dark – American Mary – Jen & Sylvia Soska

It was with some trepidation that I sat down this evening in the wonderfully refurbished Bloor Cinema for the second screening of the night. I’m not a big fan of body horror and while I respect the body modification culture it’s not really my scene. So I was a little worried going into what looked…

Bomb Girls: Episode 3 – How You Trust

Now that we know the characters we’ve been introduced to, and the world they live in, they can stat to introduce change, and this episode does that full-out for five of the show’s characters in big ways. And let’s not forget Billie Holiday. Her music, depending on your mood can be heard as happy, thoughtful,…
