Sir Roger is a legend, but I have to disagree about the villains having the best lines and also about him being the worst bond. For me he is the best, purely because of his classic one liners. They made those films for me. I still laugh everytime he has jaws up on that giant magnet and comes out with the line of "How does that grab you?" Genius!

Karl Stromberg was the best villain for me. Expertly portrayed by Curt Jurgens, a very fine actor.

I honestly thought Jonathan Pryce played a good villian. Moore was great as 007. I thought he was better than Connery. He had that dry wit. I remember one line, "Stinging in the rain?" and Q said, "Not funny, 007."

Moore was already far too old to play Bond when he started. Why was a 50-year-old cast as Bond?
