Bomb Girls

Bomb Girls

Overview

You’re not ever going to make out with me.

Bomb girls is a 2-seasons + a movie series about a group of women working in a Canadian munitions factory during World War II. Think Canadian Rosie the Riveter. It was supposed to be a mini series, but people liked it so much they turned it into a series, then cancelled it despite good ratings and threw us the crumb of a bad movie to wrap it all up.

One of the main characters is Betty McRae, a total dyke who doesn’t know it (for a few minutes at the beginning) and falls in love with her straight best friend. I love Betty’s character (read: totally crushed out on her) and enjoyed the show. I just wished it was able to continue.
