    Default Re: well-round job,out of place,take up a notch,nothing to throw a fit over

    1 Sounds a bit strange to be- well-rounded would be better for me, meaning that the cast were well-chosen and filled all the roles convincingly.
    2 If you take something up a notch, you move it to a higher level or standard
    3 The technology is not that exciting
