6-7 "Split Decision"

Thanks for all the reviews you guys have been sending lately--keep it up over the course of this season! "Split Decision" gives you another opportunity to weigh in on a S6 episode, as Caleb struggles with a split personality (hence the episode title). Once you've heard 6-7 please leave us a comment on the show (Spoilers follow)!
  • How do you feel about bowling? Do you think the DGL characters' different reactions to bowling were realistic?
  • Was Caleb's bad attitude and challenging behavior (and the characters' responses to it) too similar to another DGL episode? Did you like the way that "Split Decision" discussed mercy?
  • Did you expect Caleb to show up to go bowling at the end? Do you think this show could have actually had more impact if Caleb hadn't come?
You have until 6PM Wednesday (August 17) to get your thoughts in (remember that you can always send us an audio review via e-mail!)

Slow Walk DGL Episode #73!

We're finally on to discussing Season Six on the SWDGL! In our 73rd podcast, we give our concluding thoughts on S5 before starting on S6 with "Deal with It," an episode which prompts discussion on kickboxing, slights toward Stanley, confusion about storyline connections, generally blasé opinions toward Zach, silliness from Dave because of feeling sick, and the resurgence of a once-popular chorus (or is it really a children's song?). We hope that we transfer some of our excitement for DGL on to you during this week's slow walk!

The Football Fun Continues!

How will last week's episode conclude? Will Coleraine win the big game? How will Caleb respond to being in the game? Will Tiffany get fulfillment? So many questions, all of which will be answered in part two of "Hometown Heroes"! But once you've heard them answered, be sure to send us your thoughts on how it all ended! (Note: 6-6 spoilers follow!)
  • What did you think of the Richter's plans for a Caleb Burger? Would you go out of your way to try a Cougar Burger if the Burger Barn really existed?
  • Was the Richter's gleeful attitude toward Anthony's injury entertaining or unsettling? Which character did you think was the least considerate about it?
  • Do you think Anthony's encouragement to Caleb felt forced?
  • Was it too unrealistic for Coleraine to win the big game? Why do you think that Caleb acknowledged Anthony after Coleraine won?
  • Did the subplot about Tiffany struggling with fulfillment add to the episode?
  • Do you think the message about witnessing was carried over from part one, or was there a different focus in this show?
Be sure to give the show a rating as well! You have until 2PM on Thursday, August 4, to get your review in. :-)

  • Did you think Maya was a good witness? What did you think of the talk between her and Grace?
You have until 2PM Thursday (August 4) to get your thoughts in. :-)
