Murdoch Mysteries S07E10 – Murdoch In Ragtime

  After it’s mid-winter break, Murdoch Mysteries returned this week with a script by Carol Hay, and direction by Harvey Crossland. It seems there’s a bit of a new musical craze sneaking its way into Toronto despite the efforts of those who would fight to keep our souls pure, like Miss Hamilton (Helen Johns). The…

Murdoch Mysteries S07E09 – A Midnight Train to Kingston

  This week’s episode of Murdoch Mysteries ventures into darker territory, at least as far as this season so far is concerned. Micheal Seater returns as the devious and nefarious James Gillies in a tense piece scripted by Peter Mitchell and Paul Aitken. Murdoch (Yannick Bisson), Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) Crabtree (Jonny Harris), Ogden (Helene Joy)…

Murdoch Mysteries S07E08 – Republic of Murdoch

  Showrunner Peter Mitchell co-wrote tonight’s episode with Paul Aitken and it saw a bit of a crossover between two of Canada’s most successful mystery programs, and saw the naming of Newfoundland (not New FOUND land) rum as Screech, the creation of scrabble, and gave George Crabtree (Jonny Harris) a chance to shine as the…

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,…

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 – Sue’s Letter

  I want to open this note with first an enormous thank you – to all of you – for the two seasons that you’ve given us of Bomb Girls, and for the 2 hour movie special that has been announced for 2014. I’ve been a fan and supporter of the show from Day One,…

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 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 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…

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…
