This show looks kinda gay to me.


Are you 11?



So what if I am?  At least I have a reason to be bitching about meaningless shit on the internet.  Why don't you go get a job or a girlfriend since you're so much more mature.



So you are 11?


I'll tell you what, I'll be any age you want me to be.



So, you're 11?


No, I'm 42.

So why are you acting like an 11 year old who thinks 'gay' is a valid criticism of something?

This show looks kinda gay to me.  And it hurts me to say it, but what I saw from the preview, Nathan Fillion is a bad actor.  Seems like he can't play anyone else besides Mal.


Well the part was originally written for him, or at least he was the first choice for the role- it's Tim Minear, he Knows what Nathan Fillion does well and he's playing to his strengths.  And, frankly, even if it is just a schtick, I don't think it's a schtick that'll ever get old.

Oh, and kinda gay?  Is that really the only response you could come up with?


Actually that wasn't a response at all, a response would require me responding to someone else who said something to me. 

What you saw there was just my commentary on this subject.



Ok, it may have been unclear, but I meant response to the show- as in, you've seen the promos, read the description and the best response to those things is to claim it looks 'gay', rather than silly or stupid or bad or whatever.

Oh my God you actually believe that?  Yes I do think 'gay' is a valid criticism, and you'd be surprised how many people above 11 use the term 'gay' to reference something they don't like.  Hell, the most prejudice against gay people in this world are probably seniors.

And to clarify, I'm no homophobe (sure I think men on men action is gross, but that's just natural since I'm not a homosexual).  But to reference something I think will be 'bad' or 'uncool', don't be surprised if I use the word 'gay', it's just my character.

Because 'gay' is easier to type.  Sure 'bad' is the same amount of letters, but it's so cliche.

Ah, right so. Don't be suprised either, if I refer to you as a 'twat', it's just my character.

You have Diplomatic Immunity to being called a twat? Doesn't matter where you're from, an insult's an insult.

But is there any chance we can get back on topic?

Ok ... so, I don't think this show looks 'kinda gay', infact I think it looks well .... kinda cool. And no this is not merely for my love of Nathan

Double bill kicking it off on April 15th I believe .... i'm guessing this will transform into the US speed thread

Yeah, I was wondering about that.  And I have firm belief that this show will be excellent.

I just found an interview with Nathan Fillion that ends with a clip (which is kind of cool) from the pilot  Here-
http://www.thetvaddict.com/movie4/screeningroom.php

Edit:  i've also found out Drive will air 5 episodes to 7th May (my Birthday!  Bitchin', etc) and the rest will air at 'a later date'.  This is because of time constraints on filming, not FOX being assholes.

Do you have any idea if the shows first 3 hours count as one of those episodes, or three? It does seem a bit stupid to start a show so late into the season. I don't see why Fox don't just wait untill next season and air all 13 then? I'm just think audiences may be a bit unwilling to start a show so late into the game.

I think they count as 2- a 2 hour pilot, then a scond episode.  I could be wrong, though.    The only reason it's being delayed is so they can actually get it filmed in time for broadcast.  It would make more sense to wait until next season, but they're already kind of commited to the timeslot and the decision only came about a week ago.  It's actually good news for me- I have exams starting on the 14th of May.

The first two episodes appear to have been uploaded onto the torrents. Not sure if they're genuine as yet.

Seems that they are, as Canada aired the double episode last night, so they've been un-nuked. :)

spoiler-ish 101

Have watched the first episode and I love it! Didn't know anything about it, apart from the Tim  Minear/Nathan Fillion connection, and was gripped from the beginning. It is like a cross between Wacky Races and Battle Royale - excellent. And not a bad looking cast either - Nathan Fillion, Kevin Alejandro and Riley Smith all pretty good looking :)

woooo! That was a great Pilot (Episodes 1 and 2) Pure Non-Stop action on the roads! I am liking all the characters (my least fav are the brothers) I'm expecting lots of twist and turn along the way. Pray this dosn't get cancelled!!!
I am loving Emma Stone.  She's got something very Lindsay Lohan (in her Mean Girl days) going on, I think it's just the hair!!!

Currently watching it now.

Amy Acker is Fillions wife in the pictures

Oh, and if this show was set in Britain, they'd all be getting fined for using their mobiles while driving

Hmm interesting pilot. Nathan Fillion is an excellent leading man, don't think the show would have been half as interesting with the original actor in the role. A few interesting characters set up and an intriguing central mystery - who are 'they'? I also liked the various connotations of the title. Funny in places but still needs to find its feet. I think this one can be filed alongside Prison Break as sheer entertainment that doesn't take itself too seriously.
 
On with episode 2!
