100TH EPISODE SPECIAL: Dr. No (1962) Commentary

Dr. No

We’ve made it to 100 (official) episodes! First of all, we want to thank each and every one of you for tuning in, giving us feedback, listening to the podcast and telling your friends – we hope for at least another 100 episodes of awesome drinking games and film breakdowns!

This week, we’ve got a special COMMENTARY EPISODE for you – 1962’s Dr. No! In our ongoing quest to cover all the James Bond films, we chose this special episode to give a blow-by-blow commentary for the superspy’s very first outing, starring Sean Connery, Ursula Andress’s seashells, Joseph Wiseman’s half-Asian makeup, and Jack Lord’s granny shades. We’ve still got our special cocktail and drinking rules, but this time we’ll be playing right along with you. The film’s on Netflix Streaming, so there’s no problem keeping up with us!

(If you’d like to donate to the show and support the podcast, this special episode is also available for download on Bandcamp for $2. Support from our listeners helps us pay for hosting, equipment, and the like, so if you’d like to buy the episode we’d be really appreciative! All donors will receive a nice, slick eBook version of our first 100 recipes complete with hi-res pictures, so you can make all of our drinks from the comfort of your home. It’s a special treat for those of you who wish to support the podcast!)
