Uncovered – Queen & Bowie

Last night I had the good fortune of attending the closing night performance of Acting Up Stage’s annual Uncovered show. This year, an impressive assembly of Canadian talent performed selections from the musical libraries of David Bowie and Queen, and included a pair of actors who basically channelled the ghosts of Bowie and Freddie Mercury…

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…

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 S02E08 – Fifth Column

  What a beautiful episode. Kate’s (Charlotte Hegele) stirring voice and a single tear running down a wounded soldier’s cheek. Lorna (Meg Tilly) stopping work on the line to recognize and applaud Betty (Ali Liebert) after she was involved in an altercation with a couple of fellas who were intent on her and Theresa (Rachel…

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…
