Exploring Ian Fleming’s James Bond, through the novels that made him.

    Moonraker Movie Review - BONUS!!

    Moonraker Movie Review - BONUS!!

    Ian and Chris take a little (too much) time to reflect on the 1978 film and Roger Moore's portrayal of Bond. Once again the movie steers well clear of any plot relating to the book, but maybe for good reason this time? Either way, Bond evades assassination attempts, gets laid, travels the globe and beyond. We also learn how to survive a sky dive without a parachute.

    Be sure to listen through all of Season 3 (and why not Season 1&2 as well, you deserve it) to some provide context and look for Season 4 - Diamonds are Forever.

    The crowd gathers and Drax presents his gift to Great Britain. As the countdown begins, Bond makes great haste to save London (but mainly himself). The aftermath will be a giant cover up but Bond will ride out the storm with unlimited expenses anywhere he’d like in Europe.

    S3E10: Moonraker (Chp 21-22) - "Another tangible victory"

    Bond and Gala, hopelessly tied up, endure one of the longest monologues that take them through Drax’s English childhood, WWII antics, and adolescent need for attention.

    No one knows where Gala is. She didn’t report to headquarters and, worse yet, is absent from a dinner with Bond. Everyone agrees, Bond is their only hope and he sets off pursuing Drax with everything his 4 ½ liter Bentley can handle.
