got some more connections i'll edit into the list for y'all...
1. Both James Bond and Inspector Clouseau were married briefly in the '60s, but the lead characters' major nemesis (Blofeld; The Phantom) was instrumental in destroying the characters' marriages.
2. Despite having their marriages broken up, both Bond and Clouseau can be seen wooing women in their very next respective films, so neither apparently mourned their losses for an extended period of time.
3. For both series, the films released in 2006 were seen more or less as reboots for their respective franchises.
