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 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 no…

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 an…

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 return…

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 now…

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┬ávisit to the Bomb Girls set, and Sue and I were over the moon! Bomb Girls burst on the scene in January of this year,…

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…

Meg Tilly

Sue and I couldn’t believe our good fortune. We have had a great deal of success in chatting with a number of the wonderful and charming cast of Bomb Girls. We decided to take a chance, and approached our wonderful contact at Shaw Media with the idea of one last interview to tie in with…

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…

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…
