Is ABC's showing of The Spy Who Loved Me this Saturday the end of The Bond Picture Show? On Saturday, August 17, ABC will be showing Speed 2: Cruise Control in the slot that has been home to much maligned Bond Picture Show.

If this is the end of TBPS then I'm kind of torn on how I feel about. I'm sure our man James will get better treatment at his new home this fall. And we are hopefully seeing the end digital undergarments and hosts who believe James Bond has never been married and that there is a film called 'Live Or Let Die'. And hopefully we will again see On Her Majesty's Secret Service on the airways. On the other hand, it was nice to have Bond on a 'real' television network again. Cable networks are fine, but ABC is one of the Big Three. Bond deserves to be on a major network and I, for one, am somewhat sad to see the end of this run on a major network, no matter how poorly ABC treated Bond.

I think Bond needs to be taken away from the air-waves for a while, leading up to the release of Die Another Day I don't think too many people should be seeing Bond films. Give them documentries etc... to 'get them in the mood', but I don't think a whole film is wise.

I agree with Blue Eyes that if the public watches Bond every saturday they might get sick of him and just leave Die Anther Day for the big Bond fans. On the other hand, I am kinda dissapointed to see him go.

lol, who doesn't? :) But I agree with blue eyes, For a general audience giving them all these bond movies all the time may hurt DAD. Some people (i don't know who) may get sick of bond.

Speaking of too much Bond spoiling Die Another Day, do you think I ought to keep up my about-two-months-now life without a Bond film (bokks and music still there) until Die Another Day? This isn't some personal psychological test, I just haven't watched a Bond film in about two or three months (I'm shaking, yes) and I wonder if that'll enhance my enjoyment of Die Another Day, or will viewing the entire series before Die Another Day renew my knowledge of all aspects so that I may judge Die Another Day.

On second thought, perhpas I ought to watch Die Another Day freshly, then watch the other nineteen, and then see Die Another Day again...hmm, I'm sure even Plato would've been stumped by this one. :)
