2 Fast 2 Forever #126 – Fast & Furious 6 (Lap 7)
We welcome the return of Michelle Rodriguez — even if she can’t remember who she or the family are — as well as the return of Nico Vasilo and Kevo Risse as guests for our next stop at Fast & Furious 6! After discussing the seeming reality that the family is headed to space in #F9 and dissecting the three deleted scenes that accompany Fast & Furious 6, we’re joined by Nico and Kevo to dive deep into the franchise’s soap opera elements (and the evolution of these tropes through time). We also talk a lot about David Lynch, wonder why this movie continually says having no memory makes you a “perfect girl,” and track the transformation of Letty (and the further removal of her agency). We also talk about how Letty’s Shawty Shift helped her survive and the clumsy way that Elena’s exit from the family is handled. Joe gets a lesson in polyamory (and math?), we tie the family into TMNT (hi, Wes!) and New Girl, and we reminisce about Chadwick Boseman. (Movie conversation begins around 28:25.)
