Never say Octopussy Again! In 1983 Connery and Moore had dueling double-o's in theaters. Why did this happen? Which one was better? Jovial Jay and Shua break down their memories and share some facts about more Bond stories on Enjoy Stuff!
We look back at the 40th anniversary of two James Bond movies that came out in the same year, with two different Bonds! Join us as we break down Never Say Never Again and Octopussy.

What we’re Enjoying
Shua is on a Potter kick right now from all his date nights at the Alamo with his wife. So he found a playlist on Spotify that includes music from the soundtracks of all eight movies. It’s magical! Jay got to see a screening of The Big Lebowski at his local Warehouse Cinema. Their re-release schedules really bring the room together.
Due to legal issues, lawyers, stolen writing credits, and a variety of other boring behind the scenes issues, we got to see two, yes two, James Bond movies with the most iconic Bond actors in history. Sean Connery and Roger Moore both revise the the role in Never Say Never Again and Octopussy.
We break them both down, compare them with our own personal feelings about them, and share some of the history of how they both got made.
