On the technical side, as Jonny Bones said, because Ian Fleming didn't write a code-name, he wrote a character. A character with his own backstory, personality, mannerisms likes & dislikes. A code-name would explain the changing faces and gadgets, but if you went with that idea, you would then have to explain how all the "James Bonds": Were Commanders ...

There's no concrete answers to why it's never acknowledged, but as Johnny Bones points outs, most of the films are based on books: Film                                        ...

It seems you simply misunderstood the quote. Here's the full quote: Andy: [reading Cornell magazine] Whoa. Libby Dirketts got married. Big Red mazel tov to the Libster. Ooh, says here Dan Becker fell off the side of Kilimanjaro in a climbing accident. It appears Dan's Sherpa survived to tell the tale-Oh, my God! Phyllis: What? Is Dan okay? ...

I have pieced this together before. Obviously Red Dwarf is not huge on continuity, but it makes sense if you think about the timeline this way: Lister was found under the pool table by a couple whose names we don't know (or maybe their names are mentioned in Ouroboros but I forget). Let's call them Bob and Sue. They raised him and he considered them his ...

To give another example of the fluid internal history of Red Dwarf - In "Thanks for the Memory" Lister copies the memory of an old girlfriend and gives it to Rimmer. When Rimmer finds out he realizes why some things didn't make sense, including why he had his appendix removed for a second time. It also means Rimmer had his appendix removed whilst fairly ...

Boston Public: Season 2, Episode 14: Chapter Thirty-Four This episode aired out of order so as to make more sense. Zach dies in this episode, but if the episodes are aired in the original order, he's alive again two episodes later. Boston Public: Season 4, Episode 10: Chapter Seventy-Five This episode was originally scheduled to air December ...

Lets take the questions one at a time. Were the escapees and cops running all night? Why wasn't day break shown? Its not uncommon for fugitives to keep running till they feel they have put some distance between themselves and their pursuers. And I bet the cops were willing to pursue them all night. After all there were some high value targets in the ...

I agree with the codename theory. Here's how to explain it. Let's start with the assumption that Bond 1 (played by Connery) was an agent whose real name was indeed James Bond. B1 set the standard for which all future 00 agents needed to follow, to the extent that the secret service decided to not only retain the number 007 for the best of the 00 agents, but ...

The two movies are ignored in the continuity of the show. Cynthia Cidre, the new show's writer and executive producer, addressed this in an interview: Interviewer: In JR Returns the scene was set for a continuation of the Barnes Ewing feud. Why did you move away from this? Cynthia - I was told, not necessarily to pick up where it left off but ...

I think many of these answers are excellent--including the chosen answer which is essentially stating "it may be more fuzzy memory" than statistical truth. I think the technology addition is good as well--both DVRs and DVD sales. On other possible reason that we have more serial shows now than before is that we simply have a lot more TV. Cable was the big ...
