Filling Sean Connery’s shoes is no easy task, perhaps even more so when you’re an Australian model.
Dan and Lex return to consider the second actor to fill the title role in the storied franchise, and the only one with a single credit to his name: George Lazenby in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
Hot topics include questionable parenting decisions, lengthy winter wonderchases, under- and overcranking, and exactly why this never happened to the other guy.
Programming Note: In addition to this capsule episode, which contains our discussion before and after the film, members can watch along with Lex and Dan in a full-length commentary track, available in the members-only First Class feed. If you’re not already a member, why not sign up? And if you are, now’s a great time to update your membership allocations and maybe throw a little support in the direction of Not Playing. Thanks!
