The optimum time to watch Bond films… or is it just me?

Before I go on I should just stress that this is very much a tongue-in-cheek entry… I wasn’t going to write it at all, but then thought what the hell, we need more silliness…

I’ve been watching Bond films for years and I find there is a definite optimum time in the week for me which corresponds to each film… in other words I seem to enjoy watching Moonraker on a Sunday afternoon, sometimes with undivided attention, sometimes while doing other stuff, whereas Dr No has always been an early hours watcher… don’t know why, but that’s the way it goes.

You can, of course, enjoy these films to their maximum at ANY time and this is just how the rhythm has worked out for me over the years.

Does this make sense to anyone else out there?
