Yeah, me too. For me it's like... if all horror movies everywhere stopped being horror movies after like, the "Scary Movie" franchise started up. Why worry about that?

The Bond games released around the time Skyfall came in revealed Craig's Bond had gone through versions of missions the prior Bonds had been on.

Yeah right, I remember those. It was surreal seeing Craig in Goldeneye.

I don't know man. It's an unfortunate occurrence when parodies are super popular. The thing being poked fun at - even lovingly - and the people behind it get super self conscious and tend to course correct, or attempt to. It happens way too often.

See also, deconstructions that become popular, especially if they don't reconstruct by the end, and how the things being deconstructed take all the wrong lessons from it.

Oh yeah, that was a thing, wasn't it? I'd meant to play that. I don't remember why I didn't.

Daniel Craig doesn't hate doing Bond. Here's why he "didn't want to do it" as explained to Stephen Colbert:

I'd have no problem getting paid millions to star in the most expansive movie franchise of all time.

Both Apple and Amazon have expressed interest in the Bond distribution rights, in the lead for the bid presently is Warner Bros
