One host is the invisible car

Here’s how I listen to the show. I enjoy it. Then the professor starts speaking and I hit 30 second skip three times. It’s the only way.

Joe Bond ,

Good podcast……..until nitpicking

While overall this is a solid podcast of the series it’s not without its issues and some are minor while others could make you stop listening. First off the main host has great insider info but comes off as super cynical especially over the Craig films. Any possible criticism that can be made he makes. While the watch alongs are great in theory it’s seems rather than giving insight to the films they are watching they just nitpick them to death……like seriously these movies especially the older ones were never meant to analyzed to this degree. Though you can tell they are having fun which makes it enjoyable it often seems like it would be more fun to be apart of it rather than listening too them. My biggest gripe are the podcasts related to No Time To Die these seem to be more critical than the rest of the regular ones and I don’t feel they represent a fair overall fan reaction to it. The episode that had the first spoiler review is almost unlistenable. There is a guest speaker who totally trashes the new film and she almost comes off like she is owed something as a fan, later on in the episode you hear less from her like they edited her out which I don’t blame them if they did. Poor Ben seemed to almost have to apologize that he liked the movie………that’s just horrible in my opinion. While I enjoyed the earlier episodes during the pandemic despite the nitpicking it seems any episode about the new movie has soured my feelings towards it. Please take a step back and focus on what you love about James Bond vs. what you dislike. Rant over:)

Rob Cope ,

Is this even a James Bond podcast?

Every two seconds they’re talking about politics or other topics that have nothing to do with James Bond. It feels like a bait-and-switch to come here to listen about Bond and hear about so many other things.
