Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Shaken, Not Stirred Edition

by

Of the many fan theories floating around the various hive-minds of pop culture, one of my favorites is the notion that “James Bond” is not a man so much as a designation; no matter what year, no matter where the hotspots are, MI:6′s top agent is always James Bond, and James Bond is always MI:6′s top agent.  Of course, as new recruits arrive and old spymasters are phased out and/or murdered by villain’s deathtraps, the face may change, but there will always be a Bond.  (Of course, this theory doesn’t take into account the changing faces of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, but my theory of James and Ernie’s Time Lord origins is a little too involved to go over just now.)  Each new Bond is given the gadgets, the cool car and the basic briefing and sent out to protect Crown and country, though some are a bit more Scottish than others.  This, in turn, begs a query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) isn’t sure how to vote on this one, due to a love of Brosnan arguing with a deep passion for Connery impersonations, asking: Which Bond is the best Bond?
