*Bonus: Commentary Track! – “Never Say Never Again” (1983)*

We can make this work… probably? 

*Movie commentary track starts around 5:42, followed by discussion (and post-credit bloopers) at 2:19:45. (Movie runtime: 2 hours, 14 minutes). You can download the track here.*

In this “special” bonus episode of Podcasters Assemble, Erik, Kory, Chris, Justin, and Meghan *attempt to* record a virtual commentary track for Sean Connery’s final (unofficial) Bond film, 1983’s “Never Say Never Again”, directed by Irvin Kershner (The Empire Strikes Back), based on Ian Fleming’s 8th Bond novel, “Thunderball” (1961).

Will the podcasters make it through the movie? Why did the producers decide to remake “Thunderball” with the same actor 20 years later? What does heroin, scuba diving with killer sharks, and high-stakes video game tournaments have to do with SPECTRE’s plans? Watch along with us to find out!

Starring Sean Connery returning as James Bond / 007, Kim Basinger as Domino, Klaus Maria Brandauer as Largo, Barbara Carrera as Fatima Blush, Bernie Casey as Felix Leiter, Edward Fox as M, Alec McCowen as Q, Rowan Atkinson as Nigel Small-Fawcett(?!), and Max von Sydow as Blofeld! 

Note: This commentary was recorded using the version of the film with the Orion logos, some versions of the movie open with the MGM logo for some weird and convoluted reason.

Unfortunately, due to some issues with streaming lag, there are parts of the commentary that don’t directly line up with the movie, but we’ve done our best to edit around these, so don’t panic if it un-syncs slightly here and there. We’ve included bits of audio from the movie throughout so that listeners can follow along without the movie as well.
