And does anyone else wonder whether Acker is actually in on the whole thing? It seems they plan their choice of runners or riders over some length of time rather than out of thin air.


Noooo! Not my Amy!

It seems to me that Drive was doomed from the start. Someone at the network must have taken a dislike to it and the low figures were just the excuse they needed to pull the plug early.It never had a chance.  And I think it would be very interesting to see what Tim Minear would do on a cable network

I think it would be interesting to see what Joss Whedon could come up with on a cable network.

Indeed, I was just agreeing with someone. Joss on HBO would be cool

The wierd thing is, Whedon wants to do TV again, but he got burned by Firefly, and swore never to work with Fox ever again...which is problematic because they bankrolled all of his shows so far.

I've heard he;s going to try again when Goners is finished...and with David Fury leaving 24 and Minear screwed with by FOX (assholes), a new Whedon tv show seems likely.  Eventually.

Back on topic, Drive was very, very good and could have quickly become great.   Stupid FOX.

So how many episodes are they actually going to screen?

That's your lot, basically.  The original order was 13, but that was cut to six.  The final 2 will be burnt off during the summer in some graveyard slot where FOX can't find anything else to show, or streamed online.

As for DVDs...i'm actually hearing it's unlikely, because of awkward FOX legal stuff and the fact that there are only six episodes in existence.  Hell, The Inside did better, had more episodes and a six of completed unaired episodes and two unaired pilots- plenty for a dvd release, and that, apparently is never going to get released either.

The show is dead, and it seems highly doubtful we'll see it again except for that 'burnoff' and midnight reruns.

STUPID FOX.

Final 2 episodes will air on July 4th.

American Independence Day.

When everyone will be out or watching Transformers at the cinema.

Except those who didn't watch the cartoon, that was cycnially created solely to market ridiculous robot toys?

I assume we'll still see these shown tomorrow. Fillion mentions the show in his interview in this month's Total Film.

Thanks for the info. I only tried Tv.com and they're still showing the 4th so you've saved me wasting my time ...waiting for my cousin in the US to send it on Thursday....

I should add though - in total fairness - if it works as a film I'll be completely objective and hope to enjoy it.

Doesn't look like they'll be showing the final two episodes at all now;

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/33246.

Also some interesting information with regards to where the show might have gone had it not been cancelled, I'd warn against spoilers but.................well it's never gonna get made anyway;

I thought DVD before I read it - it would encourage more to buy to see it finish. But a DVD release with only  6 epis seemed less likely.

Fox are idiots.

Actually - read the dates and the second article. The first seemed to be posted after the July 4th cancellation BUT the second one (dated 3 days later) refers to the last 2 epis likely being shown in the next few days on Fox. It might still be on on Friday.

Plus - its great being right!

It'll be shown sure enough, but not on TV, the episodes will be put up on fox.com, which most of the time restrict viewing/streaming to US only. Hopefully someone will do a rip of some sort and stick them online.

Does anyone know if the Fox site can be fooled with an anonymiser?

From the second link *Spoilers (but as its cancelled I wouldn't worry)*:

- Eliza Dushku as a sociopathic serial killer? - Awesome.

- A second series focusing on a new race? - Rubbish really. Highlights the limitations of the concept.

So has anyone worked out how to view the US only Fox online epis yet? I can't see them 'available' elsewhere.

Mmm - files are oddly small though. But kudos to someone finally getting them out there.

Very, very annoying. Just as Amy Acker comes into it properly as well.

Still good couple of episodes though.

So, I was discussing Drive with my little brother and we can't for the life of us remember what happened in the last episode. The last thing we remember was the younger of the two Mexican brothers being shot.... then what?
