Restarted by Martin Campbell, amplified by Sam Mendes, and closed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the last 15 years have crafted an unprecedented interconnected world for a James Bond character that normally graced the screen with one-off dalliances. Centered on Daniel Craig’s granite portrayal of the character, the writers and filmmakers have built something special in the post-9/11 and post-Jason Bourne landscape of spy films. The Cinephile Hissy Fit podcast, sponsored and supported by the Ruminations Radio Network, looks back on this cinematic history for a special episode collecting the entire five-film Craig run.

For our 35th episode, 25YL film critics, turkey-stuffed dads, and holiday-ready school teachers Will Johnson and Don Shanahan wear black on this Black Friday not only look snazzy but to mourn the end of the Daniel Craig era of James Bond with an episode on the actor’s run that ended with the long-delayed No Time to Die. Fill your martini glasses and get tanked in-between football games with two guys you’d rather have at your Thanksgiving table.
