We're in Bond withdrawal facing the perpetual delay of Daniel Craig's swan song in No Time To Die so Ian dug out a calendar and figured it had been 25 years since GoldenEye hit our movie screens. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, & Georgia – and our very special guest (and Bond connoisseur), Richard -  as we head to the Soviet Union, The UK, France, Florida, and Cuba all while trying to stay onatop of things. Our 39th episode is shaken, not stirred as we discuss:

  • The original idea for this film and how very different a film this could have been
  • Those who auditioned to be Timothy Dalton's successor and someone who actually turned the role down
  • We discuss if Bond is an outdated character for 1995, let alone 2020
  • Liam tells us all about Sean Bean in Sharpe and expresses a word or two of admiration for Famke Janssen
  • Richard casts a deciding vote in whether a certain pun is funny
  • We praise the theme song and bury the score
  • We talk about our Favourite Bonds and where Brosnan stacks up
  • You'll never guess why they gave Alec Trevalyan his surname
  • The request the American military gave 007 and the compromise they made.
  • Whether or not GoldenEye is the Best Film Ever.
