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 Letter

When we heard Bomb Girls was in jeopardy, both Sue and I, and countless fans all over the world rallied to their defense, to battle our own war, dreaming that we too could do our part! Petitions have sprung up everywhere, asking for signatures, impassioned pleas to those that could give us more of this…

Bomb Girls – Don’t Let Go

On every occasion, Tim does the heartfelt and wonderfully-worded write-ups to each of our our beloved Bomb Girls episodes.  So close to the end, now, I feel it is only proper that he should also do the final two posts of the series.  However, upon learning yesterday that our girls will not see a Season…

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…

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. At…

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,…

Happy 1st Birthday for The Mind Reels!

When I was younger, physically and chronologically, not mentally, I often thought about talking and working with people in the entertainment industry. I also thought about being a starship captain like James T. Kirk or walking with dinosaurs, but hey, one dream at a time. Growing up, I was not necessarily an outsider, but I…

Above All Things – Book Launch

It has been a long week already, and as I write this it’s only Tuesday. But mark the date, June 19th, because on this date my sister, Tanis Rideout had the official launch of her book Above All Things. Released through McClelland books here in Canada (check your local Amazon or book store) it looks…

Back Alley Films

We love Bomb Girls here at The Mind Reels, and we’ve been very lucky to interview a number of the creative folks who have been involved with it, Jodi Balfour, Ali Liebert, Charlotte Hegele, Meg Tilly, and Michael MacLennan. Now we can add two more wonderful people to that roster – co-creator/co-show runner/producer of the series…

Michael MacLennan

It’s no lie that Sue and I were completely enchanted with the series of Bomb Girls. We’ve had some wonderful chats with the cast of the show, and now we’re taking a look behind the show with one of the show’s co-creators, the awesome Michael MacLennan. We met Michael for a couple of drinks and…

Coming Soon On Our Podcast!!!

After a couple of weeks off, believe me, we were not resting on our laurels, Sue and I are returning to our podcasts with a vengeance this weekend! This Saturday we’ll be sharing our chat with the amazing and delightful Catherine Mary Stewart and Lance Guest for our Last Starfighter podcast. This was sheer delight…
