009: Fancy Cappuccino Machine

What can we read into the plot synopsis for Bond 25?

With a little more time – and sleep – to reflect, we examine the plot synopsis that was released after the ‘Bond 25’ reveal event, asking questions about the significance and prominence of Jamaica, Italy and Norway, the mystery scientist, and how Malek’s ‘tech villain’ persona will break or conform to the mold of similar villains gone before. Along the way we discover the comedy stylings of Rory Kinnear, Craig’s USP, an absence of muscle in the Bond 25 supporting cast, SPECTRE’s awkward “fourth act”, wasted opportunities for Mr White, a curmudgeonly Felix Leiter, a bachelor party for Bond, Brosnan’s home automation nightmare, Bond’s retirement hobbies, and Honey Ryder’s Disney Princess routine. 

The recording took place on April 26th, 2019 in the USA, UK, and New Zealand.
