James Bond Movies

Sean Connery is honored with a Sunday series of old 007 flicks, to be followed by music and costume contests. In 1965's Thunderball, Bond cavorts around in swim trunks and wet-suits (Connery was, after all, a former body builder); in the bikini, Claudine Auger, also displays a nice bod. But, from an action standpoint, this is one of the better Bond spectaculars: You've got stolen nukes, a jet pack, the tricked-out Aston Martin, underwater scuba battles, and a yacht that turns into a hydrofoil. Even if the sex doesn't turn you on, the gadgets will. 21 and over. (PG). BRIAN MILLER

Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: Aug. 3. Continues through Aug. 31, 2008
