But don't look back in anger, I heard you say. 

We kick off discussion this week with the recent GoldenEye watch-along with Pierce Brosnan, hosted from his Hawaiian home. Inevitably we muse on his long association with the iconic part, dating back to 1981, together with the frustration of having Bond snatched away from you, twice: first by NBC contract option in ’86 and then getting dumped by phone in 2005. The second topic is the odd timing and tone of a new interview with Cary Fukunaga in which he reveals his comparatively short history with Bond, and the fact he might just have been reading the MI6 Community. 

Along the way we stumble on vehicular spats, Uncle Bond, going ‘round Roger’s, ethereal instagram captions, the magic of pre-recording, hiring from the art house, Craig’s acting chops, missing Connery commentary, Burt Reynolds’ ‘tash, blooper reels, the curse of Bond, Nicolas Cage cash-ins, location stand-ins, Spock’s rocks, a spike in sales for Dan August DVDs, fan theories run amok, untimely endings, Bill’s interview technique, and another bold prediction from David. 

The recording took place on April 22nd, 2020 in the USA, UK, New Zealand, and Spain.
