45 - The Fast and the Furious

Released 10/04/2017

The Fast and the Furious franchise (The Fast and the Furious, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Fast and Furious, Fast Five, Furious 6 and Furious Seven) shows no signs of slowing down any time soon, and with the impending release of The Fate of the Furious (aka Fast and Furious 8), we decided to take a retroactive look at the franchise and do the usual thing of pitching our own sequels to the films.
Topics include the differences between Vin Diesel and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, driving in general and some really self-indulgent stuff about plums.
