As a guy who has long advocated for more Canadian presence in Canadian movies and TV, I'm literally the last person to suggest a country should exclude itself from its stories.

Part of the strength of it is the fact that it seems un-selfconscious and unapologetic about its Canadian setting. It isn't like the writers are struggling to cram in some awkward Canadianism just to say they could...but because they're trying to be true to these characters and their world.

A recurring gripe of mine is how many Canadian movies and TV shows slavishly pretend they aren't Canadian -- such as by disguising Toronto as New York or as a generic "Anytown, North America." So how to best test this idea...and have fun at the same time? Let's make a drinking game out of Canadian references!

I am a bomb girl. I'm sure when you read that you got an image of high-heels and a tiny cinched-in waist and voluptuous breasts spilling out all over the place. And yes, I'm sure some of the younger girls in the mini-series will look just like that. My character in Bomb Girls does not.
