Sunday, 7 February 2016

It’s vaporized lysergic acid: it’s highly explosive!

What the hell just happened?

After a two-month mission infiltrating a volcano in Japan, Brendan, Nathan and James return to face their most puzzling mission yet: the inexplicable and sporadically entertaining dumpster fire that is the 1967 film Casino Royale.

Casino Royale (1967) Redux

Episode 23
Saturday, 6 January 2018

It’s depressing that the words “secret agent” have become synonymous with “sex maniac”.

In this Very Special Holiday Episode, we right one of the greatest wrongs in the history of the Bondfinger franchise — Richard’s exclusion from our commentary on Casino Royale (1967), which is a film that Richard knows and loves and a film about which has many hilarious and insightful things to say.

So drop a tab of acid (no, no, don’t), throw away your script, wave goodbye to your leading man, and cast your mind back to 1967, or at least to Bondfinger Episode 6. It’s time for us to revisit David Niven and basically everyone else in Casino Royale.

Carry on Spying

Episode 30
Sunday, 20 January 2019

– All ready to get off a slick draw like that.

– Oh, Mr. Simpkins, that was wonderful. I’m sure I’ll never get my drawers off as slickly as that.

This month, Richard leads a bumbling troupe of trainee Secret Service agents on a mission to retrieve a top-secret chemical formula. But Brendan faints after his first martini, James keeps accidentally giving the formula to enemy agents, and Nathan is altogether too enthusiastic about disguising himself as a dancing girl. Which is why there’s nothing left for us to do but Carry on Spying.
