In addition to passing physical obstacles, the contestants - who will compete in two-person teams - must correctly answer questions hidden in different locations around the world in order to advance to the next challenge.

I look forward to the 'James Bond STD Dating Challenge' show.

Will they be piloting space shuttles and destroying falling modules filled with germs to eliminate inferior species and create a better race?

I figure they'd make a few seasons for the female 007 from NTTD, then reboot in 2033 with some unknown Brit who's currently in his early 20's.

That show sounds moronic.

Just give Paloma her own movie.

That's the pitch, give me $5bn.

Holy crap.

'Barbara Broccoli' is someone's real name???

Like all reality shows and game shows, it sounds incredibly stupid.

I'm sure the drooling masses will love it.

Can't be worse than the Jack Ryan show.

The Jack Reacher one was ok.

A lot of Jacking going on at Amazon.

So they have enough money for this crap, but not enough for a full-length final season of The Expanse.

Still haven't seen NTTD - and won't until someone explains to me how it's a James Bond movie - and have no intention of watching this show.

/On the other hand....if they did the show with Clarkson, Hammond, and May....

Will this be followed up with a Bond Girl reality show?
 
2022-03-26 11:26:41 AM  
Next you'll tell me Bond is going to sell out for marketing stunts and product placement. Art never stays pure, I guess.

Jack O'Neill-with-two-Ls is hopefully coming soon!

Please correct me if I am wrong... but this is just the Amazing Race with a different name?   Two person teams running around the world doing challenges for a million dollars?   I wanted to do a game show where people competed in costume for the chance to win a lifetime supply of various pickles but they said Let's Make a Dill would be open to lawsuits for similarity.

did not rtfa (why would i?) and i cant quite tell from the comments whats happening, maybe a game show?

that said...
'boil down the legacy'? to boil something down is to remove extraneous elements and reduce the thing to its essence, to its simplest form. subby maybe meant to say 'dilute' or 'cheapen' or perhaps 'besmirch the legacy of james bond'.
unless the subby thinks the purest essence of james bond is a game show.

She's the daughter of Albert "Cubby" Broccoli, the original producer of the Bond series.

/"broccoli" means "little sprout" in Italian
