Teenage Zombies (1959) – Jerry Warren

Sometimes bad is so bad that it comes around to being good again, or at least unintentionally funny and enjoyable, and for me that is where the next title in DK Canada’s very enjoyable Monsters in the Movies book falls. This one is just so laughably absurd, trying to marry the teen bopper genre to…

Magnum, p.i. (1982) – Did You See the Sunrise?

  And we’re back in Hawaii, to join Thomas (Tom Selleck) and the rest of the gang for season 3 of Magnum. two hour season opener, Did You See the Sunrise? Bellisario wrote the season opener, which aired 30 September, 1982. And what he’s written may be one of the best episodes of the series….

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 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.

Michael Seater

  When Sue and I got to spend that amazing day on the Bomb Girls set, we got to chat with three of the series stars, Ali Liebert, Charlotte Hegele and Michael Seater. We settled into the wonderfully detailed canteen set, and chatted with each of them in turn. Now while we wait for the…

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…

Bomb Girls S02E01 – The Quickening

  Bomb Girls is back, and seeing it after having spent time on the set just makes me smile all the more, and despite the fact that I know that they were sets, the series somehow seems increasingly real to me now, perhaps because I have walked through those places we see in this episode….

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,…
