Every fall each network has their new line up of shows that they show us blips of over and over.  Some you can tell won't make it through the first season, others you just can't wait to watch.  Bomb girls was definitely the latter for me.  After being fed clips of fabulous 40s eye candy I was in for this one! 
  Bomb girls tells the story of the women who choose to fill the factory positions left when the men went to war.  The story focuses on four main characters who choose to help the war effort by working in a munitions factory that makes bombs for allies during WWII.  Bomb girls manages to give a history lesson about women asserting their independence in a very watchable way.   The scenery changes from grand opulent homes to swing clubs to production factories giving plenty of variety.  The characters are likable and complex enough to keep you interested.  From the spunky blonde to the sheltered rich girl breaking free from her mundane life, there's plenty of stories to be built in upcoming episodes.  The styling is well done and it seems a lot of effort has been put into making it accurate to the time it takes place. 
  So I have to say I am hooked on this one.  The clothes and sets are lovely, the girls are interesting and the stories are addictive.  Will Vera recover from having her scalp ripped off while doing a dangerous job in the factory?  What will come of Gladys accepting the proposal of two men?  Will she remain loyal to the upper class boy her parents approve of or choose the dreamy boy who asked her hand in marriage before being deployed to war?
