Dead Alive (1992) – Peter Jackson

Peter Jackson’s wonderfully over the top gore fest horror comedy, Dead Alive aka Braindead is the next zombie title to stumble out of the catacombs of the zombie genre as featured in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Mocies book.┬áBy turns hilarious, and bloody, the film is so extreme in its kills, and it’s gore, in…

Superman III (1983) – Richard Lester

  My time with Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) continues during my exploration of the Sci-Fi Chronicles book, and where nostalgia will forgive a lot of the things in Superman II, it can’t even pretend with Superman III; though, admittedly, there are a few sequences and story threads I like. However, if director Richard Lester’s version of…

Magnum, p.i. (1983) – Basket Case and Birdman of Budapest

  Thursdays are always good, as it lets me dig into a couple more of one my favorite series… This week Thomas (Tom Selleck) has an interesting time of it. Up first is Basket Case, written Julie Friedgen, that had an original air date of 3 February, 1983. This one starts off light enough, Thomas…

Orphan Black S03E03 – Formalized, Complex and Costly

  Orphan Black continues to wow, as episode 3 roared across screens last night on Space. The series continues to be filled with amazing character beats, that continue to layer them, expand them, and plunge them into new directions. Art (Kevin Hanchard) is still haunted by Beth’s (Tatiana Maslany) death, and his inability to do…

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 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…

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 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…

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 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….
