Venereal diseases have serious consequences.  You probably should get this checked out.

I did exactly this yesterday. Watched part of the world is not enough… And part of Dr. No. 

Pluto is the best thing ever.  So much variety, totally free, they don't ask even for an email address.

Don’t you have to have sex to get one of those? I’m probably fine.

Even Victor would be a better James Bond than Lazenby was.

Lazenby got Emannuelle though.  And Tracy Bond.

We've been through this.  Lazenby got Emanuelle when she was collecting the Euro equivalent of Social Security.  Not nearly as impressive as getting her in her prime.

And he got Diana Rigg killed.  What a tragic waste.

He was a disaster & Olofsson would've been leaps & bounds better.  Heck, Smehlik MIGHT have been better.

It's not his fault that Timothy Dalton was worse.

There is a highly scientific poll at the top that says otherwise.

Those results, I’m sure, are mostly do to that fact Dalton was the rebound Bond for most people on this board.

To the women on the board (or ask your significant other) ... who is the most attractive Bond from that list?

EXCELLENT question!

Timothy Dalton and it's not even close.  He just didn't have any of the traits the character was supposed to have.

It's like Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher.  Oh.. wait.

They're not bad movies - they're just not... bond movies?

I feel like Yaphet Kotto would like a word here.  Although it's tough to displace any of those three.  I think triple-nipple is the one I'd kick off the island for Mr. Big.

Jane Seymour may not have been the most "Bond woman" of Bond women, but she easily is the prettiest.

Yeah, I left her off because she was more of a damsel than my other ladies. Well, not Christmas Jones. I just threw her on there because Denise Richards. 

***** Galore and Octopussy were both running things.

Rules:  (1) David Niven doesn't count; that wasn't canon.  (2)  Please keep in mind that the writing deteriorated over time and don't blame the actors for bad scripts.  (3) You do not get to talk to Mr. Connery.

What about Barry Nelson, from the 1954 TV Movie as American Jimmy Bond working for the CIA where Felix Leiter was a Brit?  (It was broadcast on TBS many years ago when they first got rights to the Bond films.)  0:-)

There are two ways to disable a crocodile, you know.

The ritual scene alone establishes Mr. Uncola as the greatest Bond henchman of all time.  That's before we consider Mr. Big's office, the restaurant, or the train.

 

EDIT:  Frankly, through this Sabrespace Bond journey, I'm coming to the conclusion that Live and Let Die had the best script and best theme song.  Yes, Carly Simon was and is wonderful, but Angela Lansbury's recording of Live and Let Die is freaking legendary.  And that script was as true to the novel as Casino Royale and Dr. No were, and it was a better movie despite an inferior Bond actor.
