Fast and Furious – Tokyo Drift

In our first regular episode recorded during lockdown, Tom takes Morgan back to 2006 (or so we thought) to the underrated entry in the Fast & Furious saga: Tokyo Drift.

We try and work out the film’s timeline, discover hilarious character names in the credits, and hear Tom’s god awful Channing Tatum impression.

Also, hear the grumpy hilarity that ensues when almost half the episode has to be re-recorded due to Zoom malfunctioning!

Tokyo Drift was released in 2006 as the third film in the Fast & Furious franchise. However, it didn’t star Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, but drifted over to Japan for a new adventure starring Lucas Black as Sean Boswell.

Introducing a new cast including Sung Kang as Han, the film became something of a cult favourite with fans, and managed to just about keep the franchise going, before Vin and Paul returned for 2009’s Fast and Furious.

With the upcoming Fast 9 set to bring back Sean and other Tokyo Drift characters, it’s a treat to go back to when flip phones and Devon Aoki were cool.

About the Podcast

Two Geeks Two Beers
Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
