Rev those engines and buckle up ’cause it’s time for Geek Girl Riot to get into F9, the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise. 

Sherin, Julian, and Philip are joined by guest host Vanessa Jones to celebrate the new film’s release and revisit their golden F&F memories of days gone by. They share what they love about the Fast & Furious franchise overall and what they hope will come to the Fast universe next. Then they ring that Spoiler Siren and dive into F9, which in theaters now. Our Rioters give their first impressions and share their favorite moments—and things get wild, y’all. Sherin says, “I entertain no one having problems with any Fast & Furious movie past 6. You know what it is when you walk in the theater. This is a superhero world where BIPOCs roll up and do fantastic things with big brains and Teflon toughness.”

Next our hosts share their dreams of a Fast & Femme spinoff, before breaking down the cast. They talk about why it’s so important to see stories like this from diverse characters on screen. Ooh, and they shout out the styling and the casting, From the good guys to the villains, there is so much deliciousness to unpack and our Rioters serve it up! Sherin shares: “As a little girl I was always an action-adventure person—I loved the anime, the action movies, the samurai films—and Fast & Furious is all of those things. Plus it was birthed in the fires of Point Break. So it had its origins in a good place and it blossomed from there…Fast & Furious is like my brain put onto the screen and then exploded into an incredible high-octane extravaganza and I can’t get enough of it.”
