Today, Global TV was expected to announce that our beloved Bomb Girls was being cancelled after only two seasons.
The sounds of lamentation echoed across the blogosphere, but a campaign sprung up to save the show, and twitter united in a last ditch effort to #savebombgirls. Some internet genius got ahold of the email addresses of some Global executives, and we pled with them to give some closure, give us just one more glimpse of characters we’ve come to love.
Well it’s a hard world, and like the song says, you can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, you get a two hour movie coming in winter 2014.
So, now that we know that the powers that be actually listen to us, let’s talk about what we want from the movie.
1. Musical numbers
Now that we know that Charlotte Hegele, Ali Liebert, Jodi Balfour, and apparently Antonio Cupo all have golden voices, why not make our hearts explode with joy by giving us a “Once More, With Feeling” style sendoff. I don’t really care how you justify it, I just want it.
2. McAndrews closure
Whether Betty and Kate get together or not, we need a satisfying conclusion to their story. And maybe a good makeout scene while they figure it out.
3. An actual movie
2014 is a long time from now, and there’s always a chance that this news was released today to placate hordes of angry fans, without much real intention of following through. So, we’ll have to keep up the pressure over the coming months. But if anyone can do it, it’s Bombshells.
We’ll be giving you updates on the movie as they come, but in the meantime, what do you want to see in the Bomb Girls movie?
