In general, people are pretty good at the code review process, but it's sometimes surprising what can slip through. A natural consequence of the way our brains look at the world is that it's easy to pay a lot of attention to small details and code style flubs, and completely miss the big picture.

Obviously, not everything is applicable for every change. If the review request isn't making any changes to UI, then skip the first two checklists entirely. If a change is a bug fix, typically don't review it for architecture and design principles.

Put the big stuff first (e.g. architecture). You don't want to work through a ton of small issues before realizing that everything has to be rewritten.

Surround a heredoc with quotes and you can continue the code on the same line:
render :status => 404, :text => <<-'EOH' and return unless setup

Quotes also give you more freedom/creativity with the terminal ID:

on run_command(command)
tell application "Terminal"
do script "clear" in selected tab of front window
do script command in selected tab of front window
end tell
