    How did the end of each Bond actor's tenure differ? 


    As the Daniel Craig era comes to an end with 'No Time To Die' playing in cinemas around the world, the panel discusses how each previous James Bond actor wrapped up their run. Who came out looking good? Do we see those films differently knowing it was their last one? Who left on their own terms, was a victim of circumstance, or misread history? Do old spies die or do they become villains? 


    The recording took place on June 26th, 2021 in the USA, New Zealand, and Australia.

    What Easter eggs and callbacks have we found so far in 'No Time To Die'? 


    This week we gather to swap notes on the special nuggets that we have discovered so far in 'No Time To Die'.

As we reference events in the film, make sure you watch it before listening to this episode to avoid spoilers.

    Full spoiler discussion of No Time To Die. 


    A week after it opened in most countries, the 25th James Bond film is finally out in the USA, so we gather a panel of American fans to discuss the movie and how it went down with the audiences they saw it with. If you have not seen the film yet, please save this episode until you do. We won't put the usual list of things covered in this episode as those themselves will be spoilers for some passing by, except to say that we find a way to fix the gunbarrel.

    Full spoiler discussion of No Time To Die. 


    Now that the 25th James Bond film is out in most of the world, we take the gloves off and discuss the good, bad, and the ugly of No Time To Die with full spoilers. If you have not seen the film yet, please save this episode until you do. We won't put the usual list of things covered in this episode as those themselves will be spoilers for some passing by. We'll be back in the next episode with a different panel to look deeper into the film as it opens in the USA.

    Our no-spoilers first impressions of No Time To Die


    We return from our premiere screenings of the latest adventure No Time To Die with our initial impressions. This podcast contains no plot spoilers and only discusses overall themes (anything in the trailers is fair game as a reference). How do we think it ranks in the Daniel Craig era? And to get a view on what wider audiences beyond hardcore Bond fans will think, we invite a new panelist to bring outside perspective. Our next episode will be released on Friday and will contain spoiler discussion after it has opened in most of the world.


    The recording took place on September 28th, 2021 in the USA.

    How we're all getting ready for the No Time To Die premiere


    We're just a few days away from the world premiere of No Time To Die as we gather to chat about past premiere experiences and how this time will be different under the special circumstances that also marks the end of an era of Bond. We offer first-timers Calvin and Sean some bad advice about bow ties, royal protocol, and bathroom breaks, and as is the norm with Bond fandom, already have one eye on the 60th anniversary next year.

This is a wonderful podcast, providing informative and disparate views on James Bond fandom, and doing so in an entertaining fashion. The balance works well, the chemistry is great, and I look forward to each new podcast. Highly recommended to all Bond fans.
