Now since No Time To Die moved back from April to November and because we decided to record The James Bond Character Study on a monthly basis, you’re gonna get full reviews of each of the last 4 Daniel Craig 007 films heading into the fall. As always, we begin with a full non-spoiler segment for the opening 18 minutes, where we give you some of the history of how Craig got in character, including a story about how the film industry may have changed forever & the historical significance of this smoldering performance to bring 007 into a new era. Then in our spoiler section, we still have all your favorite pun-filled segments. The Spy Who’s Not Me is where we enjoy the fantasy elements, and Live and Let Dad Joke is how we discuss the best one liners. We discuss some progress this franchise has made, but there’s not enough as we delve into some of the worst scenes with Dr. Please Oh God No and Always Say Never Again. But we’re back to the good stuff as we talk about all the cool cars, gadgets, and tech in Q Only Lives Once. There’s a Reason Tomorrow Never Dies and Goldfingers is a celebration of the inept antagonism from these super villains, and then we finish with perhaps our favorite segment, License To Bill, where we tally up all of the damage Bond causes in dollars & cents.
