How To Binge Watch The Fast And The Furious Movies
Warning: this article contains some spoiler alerts – especially the final video. You have been warned 🙂
Updated: 30 Sept 2021 – Added .5 Episodes and F9
I have long been a fan of The Fast & The Furious movies, but it has been a long time since I’ve watched them and I never did see parts 5 and up… So I started a binge watching, from episodes 1 to 4 to refresh my memory before watching 5 thru 8… All was going well until I get to what should be number 3 (Tokyo Drift 2006)…
It seemed OK, I was a bit lost, but then when I watched part 4 things got weird… A character who passed in number 3 (Tokyo Drift) was magically back in 4 – what the heck?? I totally missed this the first time I watched the series… Off to Google we go, surely others have noticed this! Indeed they had! Turns out there is a special order to watch the movies in so it all ‘flows’… I’ve outlined this below for those wanting a quick reference -AND- If you’ve never seen the franchise of “The Fast And The Furious” you should!!
1 – The Fast And The Furious 
1.5 – Short Film “Turbo Charged Prelude”  (Web Only)
-> This short film details events between the end of The Fast And The Furious  and the beginning of 2 Fast 2 Furious .
2 – 2 Fast 2 Furious 
2.5 – Short Film “Los Bandoleros”  (Web Only)
-> This short film bridges the gap between “The Fast And The Furious ” and “Fast & Furious ”
NOTE: (Due to Vimeo privacy settings, you need to click the blue “Watch on Vimeo” box to view this video)
3 – Fast & Furious 
4 – Fast Five 
5 – Fast And Furious 6 
6 – Tokyo Drift 
7 – Furious 7 
8 – The Fate Of The Furious 
8.5 – Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw 
9 – The Fast Saga (F9) 
I’m not sure why the filmmakers did this – with the short movies, which I’d never seen or heard of until today AND Tokyo Drift  should be watched AFTER the Fast And Furious 6  episode — it’s totally confusing, but if you watch in the above order – it all flows in a more natural way! Here is a video that gives some previews and the story:
