Episode 84 – Final Destination 2 (2003)

Buckle up, bitches. Troy and Roger are about to merge their daddy’s red SUV onto Route 23, and you’re all invited to come along for the ride! Join the boys as they cover all the topics including the underestimated likability factor possessed by the delicate and demure AJ Cook, the importance of having a diverse and dynamic cast, the fact that completely implausible plot twists are slightly more palatable when the kills are great, and THAT scene… oh yeah… THAT one. The moment we even hinted at this title we know exactly where your minds went… We’ve never looked at a log truck the same way since. So get ready for a fast paced ride on the Highway to Hell… It’s Final Destination 2!
