Episode 9 of Upon Further Review!

Okay, okay, so we’re a bit late with Episode 9 of Upon Further Review too…but now that we’re finally settled in to Eagle Studios, things should be much smoother from here on out (including the air conditioner which will no longer be on during recording…sigh.) In this episode we send a shout out to Steve from The Wicked Good Podcast as he weighs in on the EB Games controversy before welcoming our guest reviewer Cathryn, who helps us review our two items for the week: first, we leap tall buildings in a single bound with our review of Superman Returns; second, we brush up on our grammar skills as we review the Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing podcast. Thanks for your continued support–please continue to submit things you’d like us to review, and keep those comments, E-mails, and phone calls coming…and don’t forget to spread the word about the show! (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

    What’s with all the Jesus bashing?
    I know some Christians are hypocritical and such, but not all of us!

    Jesus bashing? Wow, that’s a new one…and certainly not anything we would engage in. Are you referring to something specific?

  3. Upon Further Review » Episode 29 of Upon Further Review!:

    […] After a short hiatus for the holidays and other such realities of daily life, we’re back in Episode 29 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we welcome back Cathryn, star of Episode 9 of UFR, into the guest review spot before plunging into the first show of 2007:  first, we ask what kind of sport doesn’t decide its results on the field (and who thought doing so was a good idea?) with our review of the college football Bowl Championship Series; second, we look at the strange merging of anti-Fascism and fantasy in the new movie Pan’s Labyrinth; and finally, we get motivated and hip (at least that’s what we’re told!) in our review of the Hey Josh vidcast.  Thanks as always for your support–we apologize for the delay in getting this show out, and look forward to a great new year with all of you!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (”You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (”We Gotta Go”).)

    Greg, Clea, Cathryn,

    Loved the show, loved the guest reviewer. Look forward to more guest reviewers once in a while – it’s a nice way to change up the show and it really worked.

    Had some interest in Superman Returns, and now I’m going to put it in my Netflix queue. Did laugh to myself at Greg’s claim that 3D doesn’t really work for him. Must be an interesting life, without the dimension of depth ;-)

    Partial to grammar, and had heard about the Grammar Girl podcast before. I’ll make sure to check it out.

    Thanks, again, for keeping the show going. See you on ep10!

    – Chris

    Glad you liked the guest review slot…you’ll hear more, including one in the upcoming Episode 39. As for 3D…Greg doesn’t know, but HD doesn’t blow him away either. Could he be the variable? :)
