Bomb Girls  
I have a new show!

Bomb Girls - Canadian show about women working in a bomb factory in World War II. Great cast, pretty decent writing, and it well and truly aces the Bechdel test.

Is anyone else watching it?

Betty's my favourite, with Kate and Gladys runners up, but I enjoy all the characters to some degree.

And now I have an excuse to vid one of my favourite tracks ... whee! Even if I do have to kind of pinch and squeeze to make it work ... Please give me more footage, show! March 25 = too long away! Plus another idea for an ensemble piece.

Inspiration = yay!

I caught it on a flight and it's *wonderful*. Now I need DVDs

Yay!! Glad someone else caught it. I'm too impatient for DVDs... vidding off downloads. And very impatient for next ep... why did I have to catch up on a hiatus? And I'm not clear how many episodes there will be in season 2 - perhaps only one more??

Never heard of it. Canada has a lot of good shows, e.g. with unusual premises or quirky world building. Isn't it weired how much info there is always swirling around the nets about any new US show, even if it's just a nother police procedural or the remake of a UK show or a film adaptation, and how little promo there is for Canadian stuff. Unfortunately I have so little time nowadays for fannish pursuites that I really can't take on new shows. Great to see you back in the vidding saddle again, btw! Have fun with it....

There's not much of it (six eps first season, six so far in season 2), so it would be a good one for catching up on over summer or some such TV drought period. ;)

I am grateful to the peeps at ihearttvshows for promoting it- wouldn't have found it otherwise.

Vidding wise I am sooooo rusty! But it's exhilarating to have that 'omg, must vid!' feeling back. :))

I watched the first season and enjoyed it a lot! I have become hopeless re keeping track of when things air, so I'm glad you mentioned that S2 is in progress (almost over?). I will have to marathon it.

Inspiration is indeed a big huge YAY!! Go you and your vidding plans...hope Show delivers the footage that will assist :-) I am riding the wave of inspirational yayness right now, too, and it is FUN. Creative energy, I have missed ye.

Yay! Yeah, I mainlined it really quickly ... not much of it, so it was easy! I'm glad to hear you are on a creative roll too.... I had really forgotten this feeling!!!

I haven't heard of this show before, but it sounds very much like something I'd like--I'll have to check it out!

Check it out! Check it out! I do think you'd like it. It isn't crazy heavy, but it isn't lightweight either - a good middle ground that makes it very watchable without being popcorn tv. And the gender politics of the time are well explored.
