Reverse Sequels

Reverse Sequels is a podcast where two bad movie aficionados watch the sequel to a movie they've never seen and try to figure out what the original was all about.

The French Connection 2 (Part 1)

If you want a movie that details heroin use and addiction and withdrawal pitted against a broken man's dreams of being a minor league baseball player, then this movie is for you. Oh wait, that's just a 45 minute detour that this international cop drama takes. The rest of the movie follows Gene Hackman as Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle trying to take down a French drug dealer while he eats pickled eggs, jogs in a leather jacket, and calls his co-workers frogs. Grab your bags of skag and join us for the French Connection 2.
