A real error on number 47 (How James Bond Changed Video Games):

You have cited the picture as Goldeneye 007 (presumably the 2010 version). However, that is not Goldeneye 007, it's just a Half Life 2 mod. Very poor considering that there are hundreds of pictures of either the 1997 or 2010 versions of Goldeneye.


Two quick corrections concerning the Bond-esque film spoofed by MST3k and starring Neil Connery:

* The title of the movie as show on MST3k episode 508 is "Operation Double 007" with "Operation Kid Brother" being the original Italian title and "OK Connery" the rename here in the U.S.* That episode isn't currently available on video, but it will be released on 12/4/2012 as part of "Shout! Factory's MST3k: Volume XXV".One other item of note about that film is that it featured a number of Bond film supporting actors, particularly Bernard Lee ("M") and Lois Maxwell ("Miss Moneypenny).
