In 2015, the stakes were high. Skyfall had broken records and returned the James Bond franchise to the front of the cinematic universe line. On top of that, Eon had regained the rights to Bond’s legendary nemesis and the organization last seen in 1965’s Thunderball. Could Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes improve on the magic of Skyfall? Or would Spectre disappoint? Join us as Arthur Turnbull & Isaac Perry present the final ‘007 And Counting’ look at Craig’s Bond era before next year’s No Time To Die.

Find out as Arthur and Isaac go deep on Sam Mendes’s debut Bond film, as we continue to reexamine Craig’s tenure and wait patiently for the arrival of No Time To Die.
