I've always been a Roger Moore girl. My very first James Bond was For Your Eyes Only, and it became the benchmark with which I measured every Bond ever since: is he suave enough? funny enough? punny enough? are the gadgets as gadgety? the chase scenes as hilarious?
Timothy Dalton passed the test. But when Remington Steele entered the scene, he didn't do it for me. Not back then. Not sure why. Watching him again, though, I realise he's got it: he's suave, funny, punny, with gadgets. Nothing will beat the car chase from For Your Eyes Only, but Pierce Brosnan is a good Bond. He's unlucky with the plots, that's all.
