S.W.A.T. Reviews: Fall 2011 Pt. 3

With the success of the S.W.A.T. reviews last season we’re trying it again with the autumn line up. The premise of these reviews is simple: watch the first episode of a series and then immediately sit down to record a review mini-podcast. The reviews are five- to ten-minutes long and entirely off the cuff. As always we only review new shows (so no sequels or continuations) and try to avoid anything that just looks outright awful. These are the last two (for us) of the new season:

Listen – Episode 1 of Guilty Crown from Production I.G with the opening “My Dearest” by supercell and is streaming on Hulu.

Listen – Episode 1 of UN-GO from BONES with the opening “How to Go” by School Food Punishment and is streaming on Crunchyroll.
