Ep #007 - James Bond in the 60s

Goldfinger (1964)

Goldfinger (1964)


Bond. James Bond. A man of mystery. A man of martinis. A man who has very nearly been cut in twain by propellers, saws, knives, bombs, trains, cars, sharks, skis, lasers, luges, volcanos, and crazy massage gear. A man for whom all men want to be, and all women want to bone.

Or… not. What better way to honor a chauvinistic, alcoholic, king of camp action-cinema than to get sloshed and talk shit? In this episode, Bart and Jenna get drunk in order to talk about the cultural impact that James Bond had in the 1960s, their love/hate relationship with the series, and of course their opinions on every Bond movie that came out in the 60s.
