Who the hell is James Bond?

That question has been haunting the cinematic landscape for over half a century now, and it’s not easy to answer. Like any character who has had ongoing adventures for decades, the specifics of Agent 007 shift with the times. He collects baggage. He absorbs new traits. He reflects what people want out of him. Bond is less of a consistent character and more of a living time capsule – current popular culture stores itself within him, photographs him for two hours, and then catches up with him a few years later for another round.

So who was James Bond? Who is James Bond? Who will James Bond be next? These are the questions fans have been asking for years. Let’s try to answer them.

Donald Trump Saturday Night Live

Last night, protesters gathered outside 30 Rock in New York City to protest presidential candidate Donald Trump hosting Saturday Night Live, and earlier this week there was an offer on the table from a website called offering $5,000 to any audience member in attendance to yell “Deport Trump” or “Trump is racist” during the live broadcast of the show. Add that to all the think pieces and uproar, and there was quite an upset concerning the politician hosting the sketch show for a second time.

However, in the end it didn’t really turn out to be worth all that much trouble because thanks to concerns over equal time on network television, Trump was only given 12 total minutes of screentime during the entire episode. And not only did this episode fail to heal any wounds that Trump might have created for some in his presidential campaign, but it just wasn’t a good episode in general.
