Casino Night Revisited w/ Ken Kwapis

This week we're shaking things up and revisiting Casino Night! We're answering more fan questions and covering things we missed from that episode like, Mindy's hair extensions, why some actors share their characters' names, and we clear up the My Buddy - Kid Sister debacle. We're also joined by Casino Night director and early The Office visionary himself, Ken Kwapis. Ken gives us his The Office origin story, chats about his favorite moments from the show, and helps us dig a little deeper into Casino Night. We hope you...you know what, go ahead.    You can find Ken's book, But What I Really Want To Do Is Direct, here https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781250260123 and here https://www.amazon.com/But-What-Really-Want-Direct/dp/1250260124

Branch Closing w/ Charles Esten

This week we're breaking down Branch Closing and we have a lot to cover. We have to start by mentioning this is the episode that spawned the famous Michael Scott "This Is The Worst" meme, we dig into those Angela and Roy flirtations, and get into the intricacies of low-pony tails. Then, we get a great fan catch at David Wallace's house, and we find out Jim is coming back to Scranton. Finally, we couldn't say goodbye to Josh Porter without bringing on the amazing Charles Esten (Outer Banks on Netflix). Charles gives us his The Office origin story, talks about his family's love of the show, and gives us inside info about his last scenes with Andy (Ed Helms).

Finally, we connect with Jaysha Patel, who played one of Mindy's sisters and get her memories of filming this episode, why sushi and bottle service don't mix, and we end with a great BFF catch.
