When you are discussing some of the better episodes of Tales from the Darkside, the odds are good that The Odds will be at the top of that list. Which is of course why the Projectionist and myself chose it discuss on this latest Saturday Frights podcast!
On this show we will discuss the full synopsis for The Odds. As well as the rather amazing cast featured in the 1984 episode. Such as the likes of Danny Aiello (Moonstruck) and Tom Noonan (The Monster Squad) to start with. Of course we talk a bit about the other cast and crew who helped to make The Odds such a memorable episode.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of watching The Odds. In a nutshell it concerns a bookie who has taken great pleasure in never refusing a bet. However that personal creed will be put to the test thanks to a visit from the Darkside.
I certainly hope you will enjoy listening to the Projectionist and myself talk about The Odds. Furthermore feel free to discuss your own favorite Tales from the Darkside episodes in the comments!
We are also joined on this show by none other than Rockford Jay! Who you might indeed recognize from his writing on the Saturday Frights Facebook page.
