Finished watching The Spy Who Loved Me on UK TV this afternoon. I really miss Roger and it has made me appreciate his interpretation of Bond. The wit, charm, twinkle in his eye and light-hearted approach. This humoured approach to Bond is even more welcoming now since we are living in an age of constant terror and fear. We all need a chuckle!
Jim described Moore's era perfectly in his 007th Minute reviews: "........Roger Moore’s Bond allows them to keep his character reasonably consistent and watchable throughout his tenure whilst upping the weirdness around him – black magic witches, apparently invisible space stations, metal-teethed giants, Steven Berkoff, triple-nipple, supertankers, spectacle, spectacle, spectacle – and with a lesser or different Bond, it could all have collapsed. Anyone else wouldn’t have had the strength of character and what Moore makes look shockingly easy was the result of proper talent
