Episode 41 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back into audio mode this week as we look at the serious business of games in Episode 41 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we thank everyone for their kind words and comments while we were in Norway and then move on to the heart of the show: first, we twist ourselves around a bit with our review of the board game Dungeon Twister; second, we get down and dirty with some dungeon crawling as we look at the board game Descent: Journeys in the Dark; and finally, we flip out over the latest Nintendo masterpiece, Super Paper Mario. We’re glad to be back on the recording routine, and hope you will all continue to send your suggestions for things to review, feedback on our shows, and general good vibes (and, of course, tell others to do the same). (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”); outro and in-episode music this week is provided by The Kode Secret with their appropriate “Mario Medley” tune (thanks, guys)!)

A Quick Announcement for iTunes users…

As the attached audio clip mentions, it’s come to our attention that for some reason iTunes doesn’t have the two parts of our film Upon Further Review in Norway listed…perplexing to say the least, since the feed is valid and nothing else (other than it being video rather than audio!) has changed.  Rather than fight the power of Apple, we figured we would just let the iTunes people know that we have released two weeks worth of shows (in the two parts of the movie form)–please head over to our website to check it out for yourselves.  We’ll be back with our standard audio show next week.

Part Two of Upon Further Review In Norway!

As promised, the second part of our film Upon Further Review In Norway has just been posted!  In this concluding section of the movie, we tackle trains, fjords, harbors, and salmon (not necessarily in that order) and give our final ratings of the country of Norway, adding our usual blend of humor and silliness (SERIOUS silliness!) along the way.  We will post a full version of the movie next week (as we return to our normal audio format) and, if there is any interest, announce how you can get the full length DVD quality film for yourselves and your loved ones (and your hated ones if you want, though we hope there aren’t many of those…).  As always, we appreciate your feedback, ideas and suggestions…and please continue to spread the word about the show!

Upon Further Review In Norway–Our First Video Has Arrived, Part One!

Well, we promised you something special after our trip, and we hope we’ve delivered with this, the first full-length film from Upon Further Review! In this episode you’ll both see and hear our experiences with the fjords, food, cities and people of Norway. Watch glaciers and high-speed ferries collide (no, not literally!) as we explore the fascinating Scandinavian land of Viking myth and legend–and, as you might expect, we’ll have a few ratings to dole out as well. Because of the length of the film, we’ve split it into two parts; we’ve posted Part One here, and will post Part Two here next week. After that we’ll post the full length video onsite, and may even make the full-length DVD available if people are interested in it. Either way, as always we’re grateful for feedback, ideas, and of course your continued listenership–and we hope you’ll continue to spread the word about the show!
