On the latest Geek Girl Riotwe show a whole lotta love for the new Fast & Furious 9 trailer, plus we talk High Fidelity and Locke & Key.
Buckle Up for Fast and Furious 9 (+ 1–8 too) The Fast & Furious 9 trailer just exploded onto our screens and set our hearts on fire. Sherin and Julian break down the Fast & Furious franchise and why it means a whole lot to them, before getting into the Fast 9 trailer that broke the Furious Family. Ooh, and they also tell you what they want to see in the upcoming film(s)—let us know if you agree!
We Got High High Hopes for High Fidelity Many of us fell in love with Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel High Fidelity, or wished we could work at Championship Vinyl in the 2000 film adaptation. Now Hulu is turning the music-fueled rom-com into a TV series starring Zoë Kravitz as a cooler-than-you record store owner in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. High Fidelity takes a look back at her past loves with the soundtrack as her heartbeat. Sherin and Julian are cheering for this series and they talk about why it’s one to stick with, especially if you’re all about music. Sherin says: “It didn’t catch me at first but from Ep 5 the series finds what it wants to be… a mixture of High Fidelity (the book and the movie) and Sex and the City. And that’s a really good cocktail.” Catch it on Hulu on February 14th!

For those who don’t know the story, it’s a creepy tale of magical keys that transport you to new worlds but they come with some sinister secrets. Sherin and Alex get into what works and what doesn’t so you can decide for yourself whether to give it a try when it hits Netflix
