As with most History presentations, it certainly is more of a surface look than an in-depth analysis. But I enjoyed seeing how the tech elements and contraptions evolved as the series progressed through the decades. I wouldn't necessarily call the gadget information essential or particularly revelatory, but it's interesting enough if the topic appeals to you. One of my favorite segments included a visit to the Spy Museum which I didn't know existed, but is now on my Bucket List of places to go before I expire!
A major selling point of this DVD release is its singular Bonus Feature. You also get the episode of Biography that profiled Bond creator Ian Fleming. Fleming led a fascinating life, and this really rounds out the package for Bond lovers. For me, the Gadgets Feature was about 3 1/2 stars with the Ian Fleming special really sealing the deal for a higher rating. Again, though, the market for this release knows who it is. If you like Bond, this is a fun addition to your collection. If you don't, I can't imagine you'd even be shopping this page. KGHarris, 8/12.
If you are a fan of James Bond, this is a must have as an addition to your collection of movies and memorobilia. Highly recommended.
