Unprecedented! Exclusive! We are joined by two characters who were, sadly, cut from the feature: Mavis and Larry BJB. Chips on the table? 'Course. Chips on their shoulders? You bet. Find out what happens when people stop being polite... and start being ROUND. Then we are then joined by special guest Cailey Nickerson who gives us her take after a double-viewing in one week! What a way to end Season 1!
Down a man (our usual Tony) we attempt to locate him in the recesses of an apartment building while still rounding out all the facts, scenes, and themes as you have come to expect! A new segment tests Colin and Chris' memories, and Michael is the consummate segment host! We get a bit "Inside Poker" as we begin to explore the parallels of what you show on the table and in real life!
Special guest and incomparable human being Kate Jaeger (Jet City Improv! Seattle Theatre! The hearts and minds of everyone everywhere!) doesn't know the meaning of "Don't spash the pod!". She brings four pages of notes and a love for the great Martin Landau that really kicks this thing to the next level! You'll hear about Sleepers, Grinders, and a whole lot more!
Special guest Alyssa Yeoman, Seattle Stand-up extraordinaire, joins us in a very special episode where, despite her not having watched the movie or even the trailer, gives us her take. She went in blind and we get to see if it paid off. Tune in to see if we've made a Roundface out of her!
In the throes of Fantasy season (Football, Game of Thrones, etc.) we stage our own fantasy draft using characters, animate and inanimate, from-- you guessed it-- the movie Rounders. The stakes are high and the competition... competitive. With no rational scoring system in place we'll see which team owner's strategy will take them to the final table!
Time for reinforcements. We bring in our producer / graphic designer / lead intern Tony Morse to give us his take on the flick! We try our best to explain what it means to exist somewhere between 0 and 3 stacks of high society and hear all about what the film has meant to him over the years. Looks like this table just got a little more round!
Well, we couldn't contain ourselves. We had so much to round up and discuss that we decided to provide you Roundfaces with exactly what you wanted and needed-- another entire episode covering our favorite scenes from the film. As it occurs, at least in our world, this is nearly the entire movie. You're almost there!
What would a film be without scenes? Pretty uneventful, we think. This episode we begin to compile a list of every scene in the movie as they exist in our Rounders-loving brains. As always, we check in to see how many "stacks of high society" we find ourselves at. After all, this is a podcast about Life and the movie Rounders (mostly the movie Rounders).
Join us, Roundfaces, as we go ALL IN on our journey into the seedy underworld of Life and the 1998 poker classic movie Rounders (mostly Rounders). We'll start rounding up the facts, characters, scenes, and deeper meanings behind the film entirely from the existing knowledge in our heads, as our binding contract (blood oath) requires that we never watch the movie again. Join us around the table, would you?
