Good to see you back amongst us, c.u. Was Brosnan Remington Steele? God, that was a silly show.
When I say surprisingly good, the emphasis is definitely on'surprisingly;'—I agree he has a certain smarmy British punk quality totally lacking in the preceding iterations. I like Connery, but his Bond has quite the mysogynist flavor. Favorite is probably Roger Moore—let's face it, this is not serious drama, and his tongue in cheek delivery seems to fit.

doesn't north korea fall into the category of the cold war?
Technically it probably does—it certainly qualifies as one at the moment. At the time I think it was a pretty warm little war, or police action, as they called it back then. (And you thought political correctness came in in the nineties!) I was thinking more of the 'From Russia with Total Improbability' stuff in the Connery flicks.
