We are back on the James Bond train as we introduce our guest Chrys VanDerKamp to the Pierce Brosnan film, Goldeneye! This was Brosnan’s first outing as Bond and may be one of the most enjoyable Bond films of the storied franchise. There are better Bond films but this one is an awful lot of fun. It is also the first Bond film to be set after the collapse of the Soviet Union so there are some interesting shifts in tone when it comes to the relationship with Russia. Bresnan would go on to make three more films as Bond, two of which were not very good. He always made a great Bond, though, as this film shows.
Up next, we are recording our 100th episode and we’ll be taking a break from our Bond series to show Star Wars to someone who has never seen the film!
