We thought we’d seen it all, but it turns out, there’s always more gas in the tank. That’s right, F9: The Fast Saga has more secrets to unveil in a planned director’s cut coming soon to DVD and Bluray. What does the existence of a director’s cut mean for the Fast and Furious coverage we’ve done so far? We don’t know. We really didn’t expect something like this to happen. We have this, plus Henry and John fight about moving to a different country to raise children for some reason, this week on Zero Credit(s)
We’ve got an exciting new addition to the Zero Credit(s) family line of products today as we introduce the OLED Model. Now with a crisp 7in OLED screen, you can enjoy our audio-only podcast in a much brighter setting. Also included is a wired LAN port so you can listen to the podcast on the stay without all that pesky buffering. Also included is a Fast and Furious themed game corner and the latest update of our far-flung future franchise – the Venomverse.
In 2020, a man had a vision. Car go space? Justin Lin was assigned the task and boy, does he ever technically deliver. But is the 9th installment of this time-honored franchise a good entry into the official canon of American muscle cars? Only time will tell, folks. Only time will tell. Until then, here’s our hastily rendered opinions based on vague memories and feelings of sitting in a theatre without the ability to take notes!
After a year plus delay, the time is finally here – Henry and John are going to see the next installment of that time-honored film franchise that is Fast and Furious. But first, let’s check in on Quibi and get lots of things wrong about how podcasts work. It’s all right here, on Zero Credit(s).
From January 24, 2020 to March 20, 2020, Zero Credit(s) dedicated one segment per episode to the Netflix Original Series Fast and Furious: Spyracers. With the advent of a season two and three (?!) of the aforementioned show, Henry and John made the executive decision to never cover a show in this manner again, choosing instead to do one dedicated episode per season from here on out. That being said, it only made sense to collect all of the coverage of the first season in one episode. This decision was made before realizing that this would make said episode over three hours long… So buckle up and prepare to get Frosty, folks, this is a three hour super cut of Spyracers content that no one asked for, but is certainly a thing that exists now. Right here, on Zero Credit(s).
We don’t reveal a lot of things on this show, but one thing becomes very clear in this week’s episode. Henry doesn’t know a thing. It’s true. He’s been talking all this time, all these years, and he doesn’t know a thing. Come find out what Henry doesn’t know, although the tags will probably spoil a little of it. Also we discuss the current political landscape, so that’s fun as well!
The year is 2020. The place, America. Newly elected President Bernie Sanders takes the podium in front of the newly renovated Black House. He’s all decked out in his black eye liner, black painted nails, and his executive studded leather choker around his neck. “America,” he says, “My fourth act as Goth President is upon you. Behold. Our new national anthem.” Release the Bats by The Birthday Party begins broadcasting nationwide on all channels. Right before the first chorus, Bernie speaks again, “And now, America, behold our new national bird.” Thousands of bats are released from holding cages hidden behind stage. They swarm through the crowd, confused and chattering. “Our flag,” Bernie says, holding up a perfect replica of the United States flag, only it’s completely black. “The America you knew is dead. This is the new America. This is how things are now. It’s not a phase.” The crowd goes wild.
Also, Fast and Furious: Spyracers episode six is discussed.
Spyracers gets okayish, we make a huge FFCU discovery, and then we make another huge FFCU discovery.
It’s all Fast and Furious all the time here at Zero Credit(s). You ride. You fight.
Four years, 200+ episodes over three shows, and 167 episodes of the main show. It’s been a journey. When John and I set out to create this podcast, we had but one goal in mind: to one day have over 50% of each episode dedicated solely to the Fast and Furious franchise of movies, television shows, and video games. We hadn’t even watched the films when we started four years ago, but somehow we knew this was going to be the goal. It was knowledge we didn’t understand filtered through the inky blackness of the cultural zeitgeist. Now here we are, with the third installment of our MiniSupRed of Fast and Furious: Spyracers and a live-listening of the trailer for F9: The Fast Saga serving as the bread of our content sandwich today. In the middle, a nice juicy look at where corporate America thinks the common interest lie through the BIG GAME commercials that the world watches with awe. This year, like many years before it, companies demonstrated a deft out-of-touch quality with an over saturation of celebrity gags and heartfelt, gaslighting messages about firefighters. But anyway, here we go.
From everyone here at the Zero Credit(s) podcast studios, John and I want to thank everyone for listening to this dumb podcast. We would absolutely probably be doing this without you, but it’s so much nicer with you hear. So thanks for listening and here’s to four more years of not knowing what the hell we’re talking about.
The long awaited conclusion to the ongoing and very serious Chili’s Saga arrives. Are you prepared for this thrilling end to the longest ongoing ZC saga ever put forth on this podcast? Probably. We also have the second edition of our Fast and Furious: Spyracers MiniSupRed for you with some even more long awaited news of the ninth installment of the time honored Fast and Furious Cinematic Universe. I’m going to keep this short.
The audio is a little off in this episode and we’re still investigating why. So if it sounds a little weird, that’s why. Hope it doesn’t ruin the experience too much.
