    Jason Vorhees gun barrel - one of the many reasons part 6 is my favourite Friday the 13th films.
    @IncompetentHenchman will agree!

    Arrow Season 4 , 2016
    Willa Holland as Thea Queen, aka Team Arrow fighter girl, Speedy, openly worries about the team not offing a villain, that they've just taken down.
    She doesn't want them to have Bond supervillain regret.

    == again I will provide exact quote and episode for posterity, when I am done with the season.
    The viewing is so riveting, that I am driven forward.

    When the guys from Top Gear make a trip through Ukraine, at a certain point they play one of Serra's music pieces for the GE soundtrack.

    They used Bond music a lot on Top Gear.

    One episode of Lois and Clark had Dean Cain and Terri Hatcher playing a skit based on James Bond once. Kinda hilarious in hindsight, now that I think about it, no ?

    As unconvincing as Bond as he was as Superman.

    Interesting bit of trivia there. Thanks for sharing. Haven't seen that show in ages. Looks a bit corny now to be honest, but I used to like it as a kid.

    A nice little reference from Doctor Who:



    Love how he acts a bit annoyed at first, but instantly turns to loving the comparison.

    Nobody has mentioned this one? I love it! (Specially because it starts with "TDalt" :D

    A couple of references from last years Supergirl Season One.
    The DC TV producers do have a Bond sensibility as we have seen similar references creep into the Arrow series as well. Maybe Flash too, I can't remember.

    From Supergirl Season 1, Episode #3 Fight or Flight, 2015
    "Look at you in your big-boy suit, like James Bond making a living playing with toy trains"
    Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant to Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord

    From Supergirl S1 Episode #9 Blood Bonds, 2016

    "Do you think insulting my ego, is going to get me to spill like some Bond villain?"
    Peter Facinelli as Maxwell Lord to Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen.

    Some of these references are downright cringey.

    Nice to see Dalton get a mention in I Love You, Man, though.

    Here's a nice irony:

    In this week's episode of The Blacklist: Redemption, Famke Jansson makes a quip about a spy's clothes, to which he replies, "I left my James Bond suit at home." ;)

    Just watching a movie called Knock Off (a Van Damme effort) and the character played by Rob Schneider has just given us his best Connery impression.

    Oh, the movie is awful by the way but i have to see it through now.

    One of my favourite songs by one of my favourite artistes: Nancy Sinatra's 'Last of the Secret Agents' - who, we are informed, is so hopeless "he thinks James Bond's some kind of suit".

  • Posts: 4,622
    The horns in that song are very Bond inspired as well. Fitting that the chanteuse of one of the great Bond title songs, would also do an energetic spy spoof track.

    Growing up outside Albany, NY, there was the local band named Blotto that had a minor hit, novelty song back in the 80s called "(I Wanna Be a) Lifeguard".

    Better for me was "Goodbye, Mr. Bond" which gets so many things right.
    Some kind soul made a slick 21st Century video to it.

    I saw it a while back, the only reference I can remember is the use of a piece of John Barry's Bond music (I think it was from FRWL) during a sequence.

    I saw it about a month ago as well,when I bought the DVD.

    I didn't catch much at all re Bond,but maybe I missed it.

    Once in the 60s, Petula Clark did a funny song about James Bond. Well, the secret agents that preceeded him. Here it is :



    And here are the lyrics :

    Poor George.

    I'm sure he and Barry Nelson still come up in pub quizzes though so it's not all bad news. :)

    I don't even count Nelson, so maybe I'm part of the problem here? Still, it's OHMSS for Fleming's sake. Give the man his due.
