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: Set Visit Chatting With Charlotte Hegele

The second half of Bomb Girls Season 2 is just over a week away, but it still seems a little too far away, so to help fill in our time, here’s the last chat we had while Sue and I were on the Bomb Girls set. We’ve heard from Ali Liebert, and Michael Seater, and…

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: Episode 6 – Element of Surprise

Knowing that this episode was only the end of Season 1 and not the series certainly made it easier to get through. If this had been the last time I was to find myself in the company of Betty, Gladys, Kate, Lorna, Vera, Bob and Edith then I’m not sure I would’ve watched the episode…

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…

Charlotte Hegele

It’s Wednesday, and know what that means? Episode 5 of Bomb Girls airs on Global this evening. That’s good and bad. Good cause it’s a new episode, bad cause when it’s done, there’s only one left. Sigh. Hopefully they get picked up for a second season (and Sue and I will start begging for a…

Chatting with Ali Liebert

Tuesday evening, Sue and I got to chat with the very cool Ali Liebert! We rang her up, and had a great talk about Bomb Girls, her role as Betty, her wardrobe, and her fantastic cast mates. She’s a lot of fun (and just between you and me, seems incredibly cool), and we do hope…

Bomb Girls: Episode 2 – Misfires

Like a Glenn Miller melody, the beats, story and emotions of this week’s Bomb Girls hits all of its notes. From tender heartfelt moments, to brassy outrage and staccato shocks this proudly Canadian show doesn’t miss a step in its stride across prime time and into our hearts. Spoilers abound below… This week’s episode begins…

Bomb Girls

It’s amazing. I was just saying last night how fantastic Canadian television has been of late. We have Lost Girl, Flashpoint, Sanctuary, Warehouse 13, Degrassi, Rookie Blue. The list goes on. And tonight it just got bigger. Global television and Shaw Media took us back in time to the Toronto of the 1940s. There’s a…
