A take on Craig era Bond I didn't know I needed

I was shocked at how well this turned out, taking 4 movies and splitting them into a Netflix style series I thought it would feel clunky but no it feels like this watching it in series format was how it was intended. Every episode was well paced and ended on those wonderful cliff hangers wanting you to keep watching. Quantum and Spectre benefitted most in this format taking them in one 45min bunches coupled with trims to scenes tightens the narrative that I no longer feeling bored at parts while watching them. Also well done on the color grading I had to watch my blurays to see the difference that couldn't have been easy.
Now while I love this edit I did miss certain lines of dialogue and certain scenes being trimmed the full parkour scene from Casino Royale in particular this is not a fault on the part of the editor its just if your a big fan of James Bond you will miss them. There is one thing I do feel needed to be added and that's a time stamp at the beginning of the Skyfall episode 6 (5 years later as an example) it always bugged me even in the original movies that we see James Bond go from being promoted to 00 status in Casino Royale than suddenly after avenging Vesper in Quantum he's now an over the hill agent that's unfit for duty. Its always been a minor nitpick and the series does show the passage of time better than the movies. Other than that this is a masterful edit now I want to see what he did with the no time to die episodes as I only got the episodes up to Spectre.
This is an edit added as the editor did send me The No Time to Die episodes they were just in another link, and this is my favorite viewing of No Time to Die color grading looked good and matched previous episodes. I was going to go into more detail but I don't want to spoil anything just know that I loved these episodes as much as the others and I highly recommend them.

One of my favourite edits of all time. Interesting that you only have up to Spectre as I also seem to be having problems getting 'No time to die'.

I found the No Time to Die files in the Tera link the editor sent me.
