    Really nice! Fun "Aha!" moment for each themer since they were all missing something different. I think there was a bit of a typo on SOIC
    22A SOICBreaking the sound barrier, except missing something (NOTE: there is a typo here, the second letter should have been a U. Sorry about that!)
    though: SUIC would make it suPERSONic. Otherwise SUPER fun!

      Oh geez, yes there is a typo, doh! Thanks for the review!

        I didn't get it until your comment now I feel dumb. I still don't understand 28a, but the rest make sense.

          The theme is admittedly a bit tough to see. For the record, on 28a I was going for TAKE A BEATING/MISSING A BEAT.

        Very nice!

          I'm not sure if I enjoyed this one. The flow was off. Sorry..

            TBH, I cashed out when I saw the note at 22A
            22A SOICBreaking the sound barrier, except missing something (NOTE: there is a typo here, the second letter should have been a U. Sorry about that!)
            that the answer contains a typo... this misstep kind of took the wind out of my sails, although I was enjoying the solve up to that point. Bigger picture, this would have been next-level great if the words were still legit even after the "missing" component was removed.
