Welcome back to another episode of The Playlist Podcast. On this episode, I’m joined by Bingeworthy host Kimber Myers and Adjust Your Tracking co-host Joe von Appen to discuss “The Fast and the Furious” franchise.

The Fate of the Furious” — the eighth entry into the 16-year-old series — had the biggest worldwide box office opening this past weekend, but we start our discussion with the series’ humble beginnings as a B-movie “Point Break” knockoff before it turned into blue-collar “Mission: Impossible.” We discuss the series as a whole, give our thoughts on the latest entry, and speculate on where the series should (or shouldn’t) go from here.
