Finally Fast & Furious

I’ve always wanted to watch the Fast and Furious series as it seemed like a franchise I would enjoy. And when I saw Newcomers was going to cover it I thought, NOW IS MY CHANCE! So my sister and I have been watching the movies and listening to the episodes. Nicole and Gabrus make us laugh the entire time, but we do miss Lauren. So far F&F leaves something to be desired, like a plot, but Newcomers makes up for all of it with their humorous takes on car scenes reminiscent of the Willy Wonka boat scene and cars flying onto boats. Also they give me hope since I heard FFFive is where it all comes together.

If you’re looking to enjoy movies with fast cars and furious … wait who is furious exactly? Anyway, if you’re looking for a good time, call (or rather listen to) Nicole and Gabrus.

What a pod!!!

I thought I would be SO SAD at the end of the MCU/Tyler Perry episodes, because they were so fun and so funny. And yet! Star Wars with gabrus is so fun too!! The Tyler Perry theme song is…maybe my favorite song. Great theme music! This podcast is five stars!!!!!!

missemilyteehee ,

These episodes rock! I miss lapkis tho. Gabriel spoilers all the movies every episode.. good thing he’s just this season lol
