AS SEEN ON TV: BOND, JAMES BOND (AND HER MAJESTY)


On this date in 1962, "Dr. No" opened in theaters, beginning fifty years of movies based on the character created by Ian Fleming - super-spy James Bond.

The latest movie will be opening soon, "Skyfall", and it stars Daniel Craig.


In such a position at the box office, it would take a lot to get this new Agent 007 to cross over from the Cineverse into Earth Prime-Time. He doesn't seem like the kind of Bond, James Bond, who would get involved with a lot of blipverts like Pierce Brosnan did.  (The Omega watch commercial doesn't count as it just featured scenes from the movie "Casino Royale".  However, there's a Heineken blipvert might just qualify but without Daniel Craig's on-screen participation.....)


No, it would have to be a really major undertaking with the fate of the British Empire at stake to get Craig to show up as Bond.

Would escorting Her Majesty The Queen to the London 2012 Olympics be a good enough reason?

Of course, the narrator had to spoil things by keep pointing out that this was Danial Craig and commenting on the fictionality of the situation.

Leakage from the Trueniverse?
