Excellent

From the title I thought this podcast would be a poor quality “James Bonding” but it is actually much better - being British, genuinely funny, not behind a paywall, having no tedious Gourley impressions and so on. Massively recommended if you like Bond, Star Wars, 2000AD or any of that good stuff.

Entertaining and hilarious... despite the lapse

A great and entertaining podcast, hilarious, irrelevant and insightful. Although there is an episode or two that really do become boring, however for the majority this is brilliant and hilarious. A podcast to brighten your day.

FYI: Love that you are going back and revisting the Bond films with new guests... but why ask Samira Ahmed back? She is so dull and boring, and anyone who considers Cutthroat Island as their favourite action film deserves to have his/her opinion treated with reserve. No one likes Cutthroat Island, not even Geena Davies likes Cutthroat Island and she was the star of the film.

A must listen

Often very funny; frequently hilarious. Really understands the joyful spirit of Bond.
