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”).)

Reviewed in this show:

    Good show guys. I like the wide ranging topics for your reviews. Very very occasionally I will skip ahead (such as the fantasy football segment last week) but I find that 90% of the time the stuff you are reviewing is interesting.

    By choosing a wide variety of topics you are reviewing topics that interest you and when you are interested you are more motivated to keep putting out shows.

    Take care,
    Tim

    Thanks, Tim–we appreciate it. We’ve thought about focusing, but the truth is that we just happen to be interested in lots of stuff, and it’s hard sometimes to ignore one interest in favor of another. But hey, I doubt you’re going to be hearing us review a math theorem any time soon, so at least we won’t be venturing into that territory… :)

    Clea, Greg,

    Awwwesommme.

    Lego SW was one of the first games I got for PSP. It does really well on that platform, too, with some of what are probably the same annoyances, but a great game. One thing I’m not wild about though it freeplay. Just would rather keep moving ahead than have to go back and replay a level without any promise of reward. Maybe that’s more a criticism of the term and the way it’s positioned in the game, though. Still, excellent game.

    In the lego sw review, you talked about friends that like board games. Got any board games to review? It’d be great to hear about a party board game, as well as a couple board game (maybe cranium and scrabble, respectively, or something else a little more on the fringe?)

    I think this is the episode where you mentioned Bernadette’s review re: comments and themes. Well, I guess you can tell that i’m having fun filling up the comments section… themes might be nice sometimes, but i like the mix! so, whatever strikes your fancy, i guess. either way. strong opinion, eh?

    Don’t stop now! See you on 17!

    – Chris

    For more on the game subject, keep listening, as we do indeed address games of the board (or at least card) variety soon. We’ll work on some other board games too, though (because we really, really dig those…)
