Episode 16 of Upon Further Review!

We’re having a party for our sweet sixteenth episode of Upon Further Review, and you’re invited! In this episode we get right down to business (so we can get back down to our half hour length!) with our three items for review: first, we admit that the Force is our ally as we review Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy; second, we pass judgement on ABC’s hit show Boston Legal; and finally, we hang out with a couple and their kids as we review the Me and the Bean podcast. As always, we appreciate your support and feedback–please keep both things coming, and 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”).)

The reviews just keep on coming…

We just wanted to take a moment to thank Bernadette (a long time listener) for her thoughtful review of Upon Further Review at Podcast Fanatic, where she has become a regular podcast review columnist–we’ll take her suggestions under advisement, and we appreciate the feedback.  Speaking of feedback:  one of Bernadette’s comments is that our “comments” sections are underutilized…and we’re looking at all of YOU, dear listeners!  :)  Seriously, we understand that everyone’s busy, and the most important thing to us is that you’re listening to and being entertained and educated by our show…but please drop us a line or a comment when you can, since (as you know) we always appreciate and welcome thoughtful opinions.  She also suggests that we implement an additional method of organization for our reviews, and we wanted to remind everyone that you can find such a method at our Reviewed Items page, where every item we’ve reviewed on the show is listed by category (along with the episode where you can find the review).  Hopefully this will address some of Bernadette’s suggestions–and our thanks again for making them!

P.S. We don’t want to forget to thank all those who have left positive reviews for us on iTunes…thanks so much, and more such reviews from other listeners would be very much appreciated if you’re inclined to leave them!

Episode 15 of Upon Further Review!

We try not to take ourselves that seriously to begin with, but we’re definitely just playing around in Episode 15 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we welcome our guest reviewer, Steve from the Wicked Good Podcast and the Extra Points Fantasy Football Podcast, who joins us in our survey of gaming fun:  first, we take a look at the wild world of online game rentals with our review of Gamefly; second, we’re ready for some football with our take on Yahoo Fantasy Football; and finally, we wander through a pop culture paradise as we review the Nowhere in Mulberry podcast.  As always, we are grateful for your continued support and encouragement, and ask that you spread the word about our show–and pat yourself on the back for being the loyal UFR listener you are!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 14 of Upon Further Review!

We’re in a musico-cartoonish-scientific mood with the release of Episode 14 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank a few people, and preview our guest reviewer for next week, before moving on to the show proper:  first, we get in touch with our inner rock god with our review of Guitar Center; second, we enter the strange, quirky, and Flash-based world of an athlete with invisible arms and a 70s-era Mexican wrestler with boxing gloves as we review Homestar Runner; and finally, we study the formation of the universe with our review of the meaning of li–er, we mean the Absolute Science podcast.  Thanks for listening, and please continue to send us suggestions for things to review, comments to consider, and opinions to appreciate!  (By the way, that strange squeaking sound you may hear in the background in this episode is our dog Lilo attacking her squeaky fish toy.  We’ve given her a good stern talking-to, though, and the fish will not make a return appearance.  :) )  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”) .)

Episode 13 of Upon Further Review!

We’re feeling lucky this week despite the arrival of the ominous Episode 13 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we get right to business:  first, we serve up our review of the U.S. Open (it’s all about the love); second, we take a new look at an old tale with our quick review of the movie Hoodwinked; and finally, we wrap up the show with a house call to Pediacast: A Pediatric Podcast For Parents.  As always, we’re grateful for your support, which continues to grow weekly–please spread the word about our show, get in contact with us, and keep those opinions coming!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

So we saw this great show, and…

Episode 12 of Upon Further Review!

We’ve hit an even dozen shows this week, and to celebrate we’re adding an extra glazed donut (okay, actually just another mini-review) in Episode 12 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we do a quick mini-review of/shout-out to (we’ll figure out what we want to call these short reviews soon) B&H Photo Video, then thank Steve from Wicked Good Podcast and Spartacus from the Spartacus Roosevelt podcast for their E-mails before moving on to the full reviews: first, we get wired with our review of Starbucks; second, we spend some time with the Piano Man in our review of Billy Joel’s new 12 Gardens concert album; and finally, we play the odds with our review of the podcast(s) from the sports betting site NBX.com. As always, thanks so much for your continued support–please get in contact with us, spread the word about the show, and keep sending us those opinions (as you know, such things are always welcome with us)! (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
