Exciting and Fresh Look at Canadian Women in Wartime
26 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

This show keeps getting better and better every week. It's a shame that it's almost over.

What I like most about this show (in addition to the amazing acting by Tilly and Belfour) is how it clearly depicts Canadian history so accurately, right down to how people spoke and how everyone behaved, while still keeping the audience highly entertained. There's so much detail that goes into society, status, race, morals, etc in every single episode. My favorite scene so far was with Marco and Lorna and the spaghetti...really great (how Italian culture was still quite foreign to this Canadian woman - how often do we get to see that on American television?).

You can tell the producers put a lot of thought into casting and they really had a great script to work with. It's simply a stunning show - and really quite surprising for me, considering a lot of Canadian content lacks that spark to pull you in. This show has spark - and then some!!!
