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 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…

Anastasia Phillips

Sue and I have been very fortunate in our association with Bomb Girls, and we’re incredibly thankful for the access we’ve been given to the show’s creators, cast and crew. Honestly, it just makes us love the show more and more. So we were delighted that we finally had an opportunity to chat with Anastasia…

Bomb Girls S02E05 – The Harder We Fight

  It’s hard to believe we’re almost halfway through the second season of Bomb Girls! Of course this time last year, we only had one episode left to go, so I take solace in the fact that we currently have about half a dozen episodes left to go this time around. If last week was…

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…

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,…

Bomb Girls: Episode 4 – Bringing Up Bombshell

  Episode 4, puts us past the halfway mark, and leads us racing towards the end of the first season (which implies there will be a second season, and personally that’s the way I like to see it). Ali Liebert, in our interview with her earlier in the week said this episode pushes her character…

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,…
