It feels as if UK television found a theme in WWII and created a few series. I think the success of Foyle's War helped get it started. To tell the truth, I far prefer the Yesterday channel's (it's like the History channel in the US) numerous programs about the war that include interviews of those who lived through it.
Anyway, I enjoyed Land Girls, as I think I would have preferred being assigned to working on a farm during the war rather than a munitions plant. Who knows where I would have ended up in reality. I have some recollection of seeing an episode of Bomb Girls during the first season but I didn't really like it. I think one needs to give it a chance and get into the characters. Last night I watched an episode from season 2 because of this thread. It was OK and there are historical aspects to it that I appreciate, but I didn't care for the situations, e.g., snobby society mom, bitchiness at the factory amongst the women, etc. I might give it another go as I think it needs a chance to grow on me.
