I don't often praise EON these days, but they were right to squash that theory. Unlike most fans, I'm not reflexively opposed to the 007 code number going to another agent (how many 009s have there been?), but there's nothing in the canon to suggest that agents get code names as well as code numbers, or at least code names that they use all the time. I know Bond sometimes uses aliases like James Stock etc.

Good. The quicker it's out, the quicker the Craig era will be over.

They've done this a few times in the past, I don't know why, but as Kris says the sooner they get this over with the better.

Does this mean Hasbro will have to drop "bro" from their name?

Part of the problem eon has with bond is the series is so long lived compared to the actors and times they capture. The code number code name is better left alone. I know they get headaches trying to figure out on connections like the opening to ohmss, bond wasn’t a real person to eon just a formula passed down from cubby and saltzman.

I hate to bring up marvel but it changes how series works, actually connects the stories and characters, I think bond could still be ok in a one off world each movie but q mp and m were stabilizing factors.

Btw the way a marvel spoiler from WandaVision















Lynch’s character is dead in post endgame marvel. Now it wouldn’t make much news because they can always do retro stories with captain marvel, first movie set in the 90s only recent marvel appearance is endgame, where it’s clear other adventures happened in between the movies so they series could be like guardians of the galaxy where it’s not necessarily on the same timeline far as which directly following the last movies time stamp.

But it could be that Disney killed off Lynch’s Rambeau character because she intended to be 007 instead of follow her Disney contract

Hopefully this idea has been disproven and I repeating old theories

The 78th annual GREEN GOBLIN awards ceremony, which was aired on NBC on Sunday and hosted by Saturday Night Live alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, raked in an average of about 5 million watchers and a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 age block, according to Nielsen TV ratings reported by multiple news outlets on Monday. The 1.2 figure, which, like the others, is not final, is on track for record low viewership among the key demographic once closing figures are listed. In 2020, the same preliminary results revealed an average of about 14.8 million viewers and a 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Sunday's numbers describe a drop of more than 60% in both figures.

The city of Brownsville Texas administers these rapid tests at a bus station, after migrant families are released by the Border Patrol. A spokesperson for Brownsville confirmed that, since they began doing these tests Jan. 25, 108 :cuss: migrants have tested positive for Covid-19.

They used a real horse head in the infamous bed scene in The Godfather. The production designer made arrangements with a dog food manufacturer that used old horses to give them the head of a horse that had been scheduled to be killed. :hair: One day it arrived packed in dry ice and they had to scramble to film the scene.

First of all, Craig better be careful appearing in a video along with Tom Brady, it may get him canceled!

Second... WTF, he looks like they found him living in a cardboard box behind an adult theater, hosed him off, then threw him in front of a green screen. So much for him being the "greatest actor to play 007" he couldn't even feign a modicum of excitement for 3 minutes to earn a check!

He looks about 80, and his level of enthusiasm reminded me of the "and there was much rejoicing" running gag from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

He couldn't be bothered to read the prepared cue cards with any sense of enthusiasm, giving the whole segment the feeling of a ransom note or a prisoner of war "confession" film.
