"Mission: Impossible" Detour - The 60s TV show with guest Bill Koenig Part 2

The James Bond Complex

Hello dear listeners, We’re back this week to continue our very special Detour mission, a deep dive into the Mission: Impossible 60s tv show with special agent Bill Koenig from the Spy Command blog. There was simply too much suspense, too much action, too many twists and turns, too many masks for the conversation to be limited to a single episode, and so here we go with Part 2. And there’s no question that when Bill is on the show, no stone is left unturned. If you thought we couldn’t come up with any more topics to dissect with unfathomable minutia, get ready for: quality directing flourishes, sustaining tension over 2-part episodes (how “meta”!), the spy craze of the 60s being the comic book movie domination of its time, Emmy glory for M:I, Mad Magazine and Get Smart parodies, and a bold new technology by which people rolling in their graves serve as perpetual motion energy sources (just listen to the show). So sit back, relax, play the tape and make sure to open the window when the message self-destructs and produces that annoying little bit of thick smoke. Really bad for one’s health.

"Mission: Impossible" Detour - The 60s TV show with guest Bill Koenig Part 1

The James Bond Complex

Hello dear listeners, When we prepare our content, we like to think that our listeners should expect the unexpected. To expect…the impossible! The debate, perhaps annoyingly so, that has been raging in recent years is which film franchise is serving the masses better: James Bond or Mission: Impossible? The podcast answers: why can’t we love both? While Matt and Edgar will inevitably go through the adventures of Ethan Hunt soon enough, they figured to go back and start with the franchise’s original incarnation, the 1960s television show. Of course, if they’re talking about a spy show from the 60s, that can only mean one thing: guidance from special agent Bill Koenig from The Spy Command blog! There’s so much to talk about, this is only Part 1 of the mission. Among the topics: the thrilling subject of actors contract negotiations, being locked out one’s own studio lot as a producer, the links that bond M:I and Star Trek, muscle acting, remaking episodes of the same series, the 80s tv show revival, kitty cat heists, and so much more. So sit back, relax, mould your mask to perfection while listening to Part 1 of our Mission: Impossible 60s tv show Detour.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) - With Bill Koenig

The James Bond Complex

Hello dear listeners! This is a critical moment for the entire James Bond fan community. As you download this episode on Wednesday March 11th we are exactly 1 week removed from…you know what. Just as we were all so terribly excited about No Time to Die, circumstances beyond almost anybody’s control had the film temporarily pulled away from under our feet, at least until November. Suddenly, Bond is nowhere to be found on the April cinema calendar. Fitting, therefore, that Bond is nowhere to be found this week on the show either, although his spirit and that of Ian Fleming cast a long shadow over this week’s topic: The Man From U.N.C.L.E., both the 2015 film directed by Guy Ritchie and the television series that exploded onto tv sets in the 1960s. Heaven forbid hosts Mathieu and Edgar pretend they know U.N.C.L.E. as well as they do Bond. Nay, the lads bring in reinforcements this week to lay the groundwork of what The Man From U.N.C.L.E. franchise is and how it got started.  We welcome Bill Koenig, also as the The Spy Command (or, we as like to say, simply the Spy Commander), who runs a fantastic blog about the espionage pop culture phenomenon in all its shapes forms. Effortless pop and U.N.C.L.E. scholar, Bill regales Matt and Edgar in the history of the entire series before diving into a mini-review of the 2015 motion picture adaptation. The usual hosts, frankly, just bask in the glory that is Bill’s knowledge and insight. So sit back and enjoy a different spin on the spy pop culture phenomenon, albeit with obvious 007 echoes. Cry U.N.C.L.E.? Bob’s your U.N.C.L.E.? Forget about it. We have you covered this week!
