“Bomb Girls Television Review”


“Bomb Girls” is a television show set in Canada during WWII. It is centered around four women working in a munitions factory in an effort to help the war cause. It contains wonderfully written female characters that are flawed and relatable. One of the reasons I really enjoyed this series is because it didn’t sugar coat what was happening during this time period. “Bomb Girls” dealt with racism, homophobia and class issues which offered a nice relief from the straight white male centered TV shows that are commonly aired.

But despite the harsh realities the show deals with, it’s still fun to watch. The women’s relationships and activities bring fun to your screen and keep you clicking to the next episode.

Sadly, “Bomb Girls” was cancelled after their second season, but not before it was given it’s own feature length movie. Both of the seasons and the movie are available on Netflix, so there’s no excuse not to watch it. “Bomb Girls” has been nominated for 19 awards and won six of them, including “Best Lead Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series,” “Outstanding Drama” and “Best Costume Design in a Program or Series”.

If you’re looking for a TV show that is well written, acted and fun to watch, then I wholeheartedly recommend “Bomb Girls”.
