‘BOMB GIRLS’ FANS SEND 1,000 VICTORY BANDANAS TO GLOBAL TV

TORONTO, May 27, 2013 – Waging war not with bullets and bombs but with carefully chosen words and gifts from the heart, fans of TV’s Bomb Girls continue to fight to get their show back on the air. Almost a month after Bomb Girls was cancelled by Global TV, a shipment of 1,000 blue bandanas…

Join The Fight To Save Bomb Girls!!!

Fans all over the world were devastated to learn of Global TV’s decision not to renew the critically-acclaimed Canadian historical drama, Bomb Girls, for a third season.  It’s no secret that we here at the Mind Reels have been in love with this show from the very beginning, and our love has only grown stronger…

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 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 learn…

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 the…

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 they…

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…

Current TV Shows I Most Enjoy – Part I

I was going to try and come up with a clever title or gimmick for this, like Sue’s Top 12 of 2012, or something.  But I didn’t want to restrict myself with a number, and the fact is, one of the reasons we started the Mind Reels was because we felt that things we loved…

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,…
