Your favourite dysfunctional family discuss all things James Bond. We'll let you decide whether it leaves you shaken or stirred!
With the final Daniel Craig Bond movie, No Time To Die, seemingly delayed for eternity, we thought we’d bring some light relief to those listeners getting withdrawal symptoms from the world’s most loved movie franchise!
Sit back and enjoy!
Yes, in this epic episode we chat about all things Bond. There is a lot of ground to cover here, and just as some of Bond’s quick-witted quips are now slightly dubious, so is Antony’s hosting – so much so that we’ve nicknamed this the X-rated episode!
The guys try to reach a conclusion as to which watch is the true Bond watch as they unpick Fleming’s original novels and discuss how the movies have subliminally influenced their choice of watches in later life.
We discuss Fleming’s novels and how well (or not as the case may be) they have been interpreted for the silver screen. Can you guess which one of our intrepid wannabe spies describes Moonraker as “One of the most ludicrous films ever made…an amazing novel turned into a monstrosity”?
The clock is turned back as they reminisce about what first drew them to Bond movies, and which of the iconic Bond cars and gadgets got them hot under the collar.
Somewhat unusually our dysfunctional family is largely in agreement about their favourite Bond film, and it’s probably not the one which you think it is!
