Episode 53 of Upon Further Review!

We’ve returned once again, and it’s time to ring in the new year with Episode 53 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we shock the world in revealing our New Year’s resolutions (okay, it’s not that shocking, but it is revealing!) and warn iWin of our displeasure with their latest action before moving on to the heart of the show:  first, we ask how big a scam artist you have to be to get in trouble for it with our review of vanity presses; second, we hook up our bounty hunter gear and blast off as we look at the Nintendo Wii game Metroid Prime III:  Corruption; and finally, we get all hip and musical (so to speak) with our take on The Stuart Bedasso Show podcast.  As always, we really appreciate your ideas and comments, and as always, we hope you’ll spread the word so others can join the smartest group of listeners on the Internet!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 52 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back, and just in time for the holidays–if you’re a last minute podcast shopper, welcome to the world of Upon Further Review! In Episode 52, we thank listeners for feedback and suggestions before moving on to the reviews: first, we contemplate mortality and minor characters as we look at Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead; second, we look at laughter and live audiences (do those go together?) with our review of Saturday Night Live; and finally, we hear the word (lots of them, actually) with our take on The Word Nerds podcast. As always, we appreciate all of your suggestions, feedback and continued support (our audience is continuing to grow!)–and as always, we ask that you pass the good word (as many of them as you like :) ) to others! (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 51 of Upon Further Review!

This week we deal with gnomes, Grendel, and green creatures from outer space (sort of) in Episode 51 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we thank our listeners and well-wishers before getting into the show: first, we fire up Flamingo Montoya and other garden-protecting gadgets as we review the new computer game (submitted by listener/co-programmer Mike) Garden Defense; second, we wonder openly when Grendel’s mother got so attractive as we review the movie Beowulf; and finally, we blast off for dimensions unknown with our review of the Dick Dynamo podcast. As always, we appreciate your ideas and comments…and as always, we appreciate your spreading the word about the show!

Episode 50 of Upon Further Review has arrived!

At long last (and we hope this lasts long!), we are proud to present Episode 50 of Upon Further Review! Since this is a special show for us, we thought it only appropriate to take a special approach to it–and since this is show fifty, what would be more appropriate than to review fifty things? In thirty minutes?

Crazy, you say? Impossible, you suggest? Then it’s time you learn of the power (and insanity) of The Reviewers! In this show we review six colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), six red meats (beef, lamb, venison, pork, ostrich, buffalo), nine different kinds of foods (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Ethiopian, Mexican, Italian, Irish), six pop stars (Britney Spears, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan), eight items suggested by listener “Classic Chris” (video game arcades, reality shows, Celebreality, Kathy Griffin, Clue The Movie, Aeon Flux, www.manager-tool.com, Ronald Reagan), twelve games (Blue Moon, Bohnanza, Rack-O, Hoopla, Murder To Go, Cranium, Loot, Shakespeare the Bard Game, Lord of the Rings Trivia Game, Civilization the Board Game, Cribbage, Are You A Werewolf), two miscellaneous items (What Should I Do With My Life and Cirque du Soleil’s Wintuk), and one very, very important item, which gets the highest rating we’ve ever given–and you’ll just have to listen to see what it is!

We are incredibly grateful to all of the people in our ever-growing listener base for sticking with us and telling friends about the show, and look forward to many episodes to come. Special thanks to Drum Intellected for recording the intro to the show (and unsolicited!). As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”); the remaining music in this episode is provided by Top Johnny! (“Kick It We Are The Masters TJs ClubHouse REMIX,” “Surrender Let It Go TJs ClubHouse REMIX”).

Episode 49 of Upon Further Review!

This week we talk babies, baseball players and brazen skeptics (well, actually humanists, but we wanted another “b”) in Episode 49 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we make a special announcement (you’ll just have to hear it for yourselves!) before moving on to the main portion of the show: first, we look at the power of infant registries with our take on Babies ‘R Us; second, we celebrate the power of America’s national pastime as we review the World Series; and finally, we examine the origins of the universe (sort of) with our review of the Humanist Network News Audio podcast. As always, we’re grateful for your ideas and suggestions–and as always, we ask that you please 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”).)

Episode 46 of Upon Further Review!

This week we take on rockers, secret agents and obsessive dog walkers (we’re nothing if not diverse!) in Episode 46 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we call out Ikea for some possibly naughty behavior before getting into the meat of the show: first, we sit down for a meeting with the Boss as we review Bruce Springsteen and his album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.; second, we go underground with our review of The Bourne Ultimatum; and finally, we question how OCD one can be as we look at Amanda Banana: The Obsessive Dogwalker Video Podcast.  As always, we appreciate your suggestions and ideas for future review topics, and ask that you keep them coming–and yourself listening!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
