    Not exactly a pop culture reference but I wanted to report that I've just spotted a 007-edition 2CV in the Tour de France coverage.

    Good spotting! Have seen a few over the years (in Tour de France), but no 007-edition ones!

    I think my partner was a little alarmed by my speedy identification (and my demand that we pause and rewind)!

    Haha, I guess that's understandable!

    Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp ends with
    "Ant-Man and the Wasp will return?"

    The question mark fits with how the movie actually ends. Hint, think Infinity Wars ending.

    Interesting choice of literature.

    Didn't they learn from that horrid Melissa McCarthy Spy movie?

    Cool tagline, though.

    Amazon thinks I might want to read this.

    I do not want to read this.

    Somewhere out there, some copywriter or editor is sitting back with a self-satisfied feeling.

    I just wonder what other titles this person has written that has landed them on the NY Times and USA Today bestseller lists.

    Watching Macgyver on German TV right now (my mom loves him, what can you do)
    And Episode 5 of season one (The Heist) is basically one long Bond parody. The name James Bond is used multiple times by Gyver himself, "I look like James Bond" as well as by the Gyver-girls in the Episode. There is even a sublte Bond like theme in the Soundtrack when he puts on his Tuxedo.
    And of course theres an obligatory Casino scene where you can see him gambling.

    Well, in one episode of Castle, the eponymous writer was once contacted to write a series of novels featuring "a well-known british secret agent". He thought about it, but decided to continue with the adventures of Nicky Heat. But later on, we learned that he received his calling as a writer from Casino Royale, which his father (himself a british secret agent, although not well-known) has sent him as a brithday gift, IIRC. And later on, he received a first edition of the novel, once again from his father.

    And in the 70s, on french television, i saw a few times a magician whose gimmick was to act like a secret agent, with loads of gimmicks, including a record player inside his hat. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a clip, otherwise I would have posted it here.

    My kids were watching a Spy Kids sequel yesterday, and I saw that it was Spy Kids 4: All the Time In The World.

    I didn't even know there was a Spy Kids 2.

    I remember that! Castle is one of the cop shows I enjoy the most, and this little detail to Castle's literary career was a nice touch. There's also the recurring scenes where he plays poker with his famous (real-life) writer friends:

    I once worked with a guy named James Pond. He was good-natured enough to have the character as his profile picture on LinkedIn.

    It comes with a software package called Spectre. They know exactly what they're doing.

    In the song "Inventaire 66", Michel Delpech, among other things that made headines in the year 1966, mentions "Une bombe dans la Mer, Opéation Tonnerre". It's of course a reference to the Torremolinos plane crash :

    and to the french title of TB, Opération Tonnerre. Here's the song :

    I looked it up, but perhaps it would have helped to mention that "Opération Tonnerre" is the French ttle of Thunderball.
