Since the start of this special podcast series, Jake has repeatedly invoked his disdain for Sean Connery's final official cinematic outing in the role that made him famous (Remember that 1983's Never Say Never Again was made outside of the official franchise by a rival studio) in 1971's Diamonds Are Forever and in this episode the gang delves to why exactly that is. The start of Bond in a decade with an added emphasis on spectacle and appealing to American audiences, Diamonds Are Forever marks a clear transition for the cinematic franchise. See how Jake and the gang look back on the film!
