Should Blofeld/Spectre be in 26 ?

Personally, I think they should never have been brought back at all, and the fact that they made a complete dogs dinner of the Blofeld character with the step brothers nonsense, is unforgivable imo but I think unfortunately like the DB5, Blofeld/Spectre will be flogged to death and become a semi permanent feature from now on, indeed an number of foolish Bond fans over the years have said that they wish the bond villains in all the 70s/80s/90s Bond movies were working for Spectre

    No, no, that's not accurate: not ALL the Bond villains, John.

    I don't think Blofeld should return during the tenure of Bond7, probably not SPECTRE either. Saying they should never ever return is a tall order I think.

    I would like to see us have a break from Blofeld for a little while, but I certainly wouldn't oppose him or SPECTRE returning at some point.

    Blofeld and Spectre, no. A criminal organization and the head of the organization, sure. Doesn't have to be in every movie, but if the new Bond movies are to be connected somehow, do it from the start. Don't retcon things several movies in.

    Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

    They shouldn’t have returned for NTTD. Spectre was dreadful but I guess they thought the Box Office take warranted bringing them back.

    Yes. Considerably!

    I have no problem bringing them back, as long as they could do it right this time.

    The only good (shown faced) Blofeld for me so far was Telly Savalas' version, but the rest of the Blofelds were meh..... (I'm not counting the faceless ones).
