Episode 78 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a look at fun, so to speak, in Episode 78 of Upon Further Review!  Just back from Gen Con in Indianapolis, in this episode we get in touch with our inner gamer, with some outdoor fun thrown in for good measure: first, we look at the new card game Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer; second, we enter a world of wonder (technically) with our review of the Dutch Wonderland theme park; finally, we get a bit meta as we look at the video game review show Zero Punctuation.  As always, we appreciate your continued interest in the show, and as always, we ask that you spread the word to friends, family, and anyone interested in some entertaining opinions!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 77 of Upon Further Review!

We’re doling out opinions with an international flair…in Episode 77 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we discuss travel plans before moving into the show proper:  first, we get in touch with our inner Italian plumber as we review Nintendo’s masterpiece, Super Mario Galaxy 2; second, we tackle an important (if somewhat controversial, but hey, never stopped us before, right?) topic with our look at vaccines; and finally, we consider all the possibilities, improbable as they may be, as we review the Sherlock Holmes movie.  As always, we appreciate you continuing to tune into the show, and as always, we respectfully ask that you spread the word to friends, family and even complete strangers!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 76 of Upon Further Review!

Spring has arrived in full force, and we’ve got the fever, all right…in Episode 76 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode Clea comes to grips with turning 34 (it’s really not that bad, trust us) before we head into the main portion of the show: first, we explain how books and technology CAN mix, with our review of the Barnes and Noble Nook; second, we fizz it up a bit as we look at the Sodastream; and finally, we head back to high school (no, not literally, thank the heavens) with our review of the Fox hit show Glee.  As always, we appreciate your continued dedication to the show, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word! (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Some help would be appreciated…

Hi all,

We’re trying to make the leap to a new podcasting program (Powerpress), and we want to make sure you’re all still receiving our shows via the feed–if you can let us know via a comment or an E-mail, we would appreciate it.  Thanks!

Episode 75 of Upon Further Review!

We’ve made it to our diamond anniversary (no, not us personally!), and to celebrate we’re going big this episode–big games, toys, and movies–in Episode 75 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we briefly talk Olympics and platinum medals (who knew?) before getting into the reviews: first, we walk the path of the shadows (so to speak) with our review of Assassin’s Creed II; second, we confess our undying affection for the old classic, Legos; and finally, we go planet (and native) side as we take a closer look at Avatar.  As always, we appreciate your continued interest in the show, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 74 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back with a look at robots, games, and geeks in Episode 74 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we explain our recent absence before getting into the show: first, we look at where one brave robot can go (and not go) in our review of Wall-E; second, we get hip with our look at the Playstation 3; and finally, we delve deep into the mind of, well, D and D as we examine the Dungeons and Dragons podcast.  As always, we appreciate your continued listening to the show, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 73 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back again with our annual discussion of all things game-related–and we’re not playing around–in Episode 73 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we get right into the heart of our annual post-Gen Con special: first, we ask how many ways a game can try to destroy you in The Isle of Dr. Necreaux; second, we tap the depths of Greg’s “can’t win this thing” frustration with our review of Arcana; third, we take a look at one of the hottest games out there, Dominion; and finally, we look at an adventure game with class (and downtime) in our review of Runebound.  As always, we appreciate your continued dedication to the show, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”)

Episode 72 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back once again with a discussion of trains, teams and troubled music video channels (kind of!) in Episode 72 of Upon Further Review!  In this show we dispense with any potentially distracting banter (well, except for a brief bonus rating of lemonade) and jump right into the meat of the show: first, we invite everyone to climb aboard as we review Amtrak; second, we return to Greg’s roots with our take on the Red Sox message board, Sons of Sam Horn: and finally, we get into our wayback machine as we look at the past, present and future of MTV.  As always, we appreciate your continued listening to the show–and as always, we ask that you spread the word to others!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (”You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (”We Gotta Go”).)
