Now I've looked around, and also did a search and couldn't find a similar topic. If there is one, this can be closed and merged.
We have a thread for the things we never want to see in a Bond film again, but what about the things that we do like. The things that are left out, or overlooked.
For instance, I would like to see Bond and the villain face off in a game of some sort. Classic examples being golf in Goldfinger, backgammon in Octopussy and poker in Casino Royale. Even the skeet shooting in Thunderball. All of the above are some of the highlights of those respective films for me. It brings a certain something to the film I find.
Another thing I'd be happy to see would be when the villain wined and dined Bond, often letting their ego run riot explaining the finer details of their diabolical scheme, and how they're going to kill Bond in the process.
Maybe a return of the station heads of the British secret service. (And not have them be traitors). Let's go back to Station T - Turkey, Station V - Vienna or Station C - Canada. But hopefully open up other unseen locations that Bond hasn't travelled to, but be aided by an ally when he is there.
And finally I'd like to see a return of Felix Leiter. Beef up his role slightly so as he has more to do than an extended cameo, but not over shadow Bond.
I'm sure there are elements, characters, locations or anything at all that you'd like to see return to the series.
How about the great "OO7" theme not heard since Moonraker. Sadly.
