Great cast, fun premise, and a lot of talent involved.

It was someone at Fox's decision to pit this show against "Dancing With the Stars" and "Deal or No Deal"... that was just plain stupid.
J. Carson
Although, I'm not sure I want to support anything that comes from FOX, I would still want to buy this show on DVD.

First let me say, I hate FOX. I really, really hate FOX. They have shown time and time again that they have the ability to make absolutely brilliant shows, with fantastic, talented ensemble casts, with writing that is sharp, witty, funny and emotionally relevant without being sappy. Now, I'm not talking about shows like "America's next teenage idol's dog" or "Killer Chihuahuas" or any of the other "reality" shows that they are currently in love with on FOX. I'm talking about shows like Firefly, Wonderfalls and Drive. Shows that FOX will then sabotage (like Firefly, for example) by pre-empting the show for something stupid, or just pull the plug because they think that the show is going to tank, before they have actually given the show a chance to succeed (like Drive).

Now that I have that out of my system, I'll get on with my actual review of the show "Drive." I LOVED THIS SHOW. This was an adrenaline pumping, heart thumping, sit on the edge of my seat biting my nails, can't wait to see what happens next show. The cast was brilliant. Nathan Fillion was absolutely amazing as the heartbroken husband whose wife is kidnapped in order to blackmail him into joining "The Race." His transformation following his torture from "Alex the innocuous" good husband/good guy, into "Alex the bad guy" was one of the most chilling onscreen moments since the Anthony Hopkins introduction as Hannibal Lechter in Silence of the Lambs. And that's only the beginning. The remainder of the cast were also excellent. Melanie Lynskey was terrific as the mother of a newborn doing everything she could to protect her baby. I loved the conspiracy theory angle of the show, and trying to figure out who was behind it all and what was really happening and why.

I don't watch a lot of TV because most of it sucks, but this was one show that was just awesome. Yes, it was too good to be true as one other reviewer stated. Sure, the opening episode was a little shaky and some of the edits were a little cheesy, but once you got into the plot and story-line you were hooked. Watch episode 6, "Rearview," it is incredible. It didn't air, but it is available from iTunes. It is great. I really hope they do something about this and bring it back in 2009. It was someone at Fox's decision to pit this show against "Dancing With the Stars" and "Deal or No Deal"... that was just plain stupid. If they had any brains they would have put "Drive" in another time slot. The actors and plot in Drive are incredible. Please bring this show back or at least make a feature-length movie.

This show was something different and had an engaging cast. I could watch Nathan Fillion count blades of grass though, so I am a bit biased. Still, the show had potential, and once again Fox cancels a series before it has a chance to get a good start. Well, I will watch the extra episodes and hope Fox will eventually learn a lesson. I agree about the reality shows, YAWN.

I saw this show when it originally aired, and was absolutely heartbroken when Fox decided to pull it after airing only 4 episodes. There is a rumor that two other episodes, which were ready for release but never aired on tv, are available on the 'net somewhere.
The show synopsis makes it seem like a one-trick pony, but it was surprisingly really engaging. Each character is three-dimensional, complete with their own catchy backstory, occasionally stunning lines of dialogue, and motivations. That made it very, very difficult to have a 'favorite' character...or even a 'least favorite' character. There's real character development, plus plot, humor, romance/sexual tension, danger, crime, and oh yes, did I forget the wonderful special effects? Every episode felt like I was watching a really well-made movie, the effects were just that good. I've never been much of a car racing person before this, but I was on the edge of my seat every time there was a pursuit or any rally-type of scene. Really, I cannot recommend this series enough.
