The Fast & The Furious 1-3 – The Review Show 239

Crack open the Coronas for our first monthly ongoing series of the year, covering the Fast & Furious saga! We watched The Fast and The Furious (2001), 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003), and The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006), with the next three movies coming next month. Brian O’Conner is an undercover officer infiltrating the street-racing scene in Los Angeles, trying to stop a group of mysterious drivers from stealing 2001’s most precious commodity: DVD players. He bonds with the Toretto family, and struggles with choosing this bond over his mission when he finds they might be involved in the thefts. He then goes to Miami to bust another criminal boss, supported by an all new colorful team of racers. Finally, we meet high schooler Sean, who’s been sent to live with his estranged father in Japan after he’s busted for another street race. He’s the champ where he comes from, but now he has to learn the art of drifting to defeat an opponent with dangerous yakuza ties.

The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture. We cover a variety of genres and mediums movies, TV shows, comics, anime, manga, audio dramas picking out a specific piece of entertainment that we can cover in a week’s time. Every episode, your intrepid co-hosts Kyle and Melissa dive into the media of the week (with a spoiler warning!), give recommendations, and take turns pitching the next topic. For one episode a month, we check in with continuing coverage on a longer title, like a full TV series or comics run, and follow it all the way to the end. Join us for fun discussions on a wild variety of entertainment you should know!
