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 canceled 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 lesbian who doesn’t know it (for a few minutes at the beginning) and falls in love with her straight best friend.
