  • Could this be the end of the show...

    8.6
    Ok I just heard a rumor and I really hope it is not true... I heard that Drive is getting cancled and not even finishing the season.If this is true then people probley know this so sorry. But I guess they couldn't cut it. I loved this show and this episode. It always surprises me in the face of tv to watch the Mother with her child some how in danger. This show was made to at least go two short or one full season. Speaking of LOST. They have stayed way to long on that island. Well I hope Drive stays Driven.moreless
  • The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia.....and it's lights out for the series.

    7.5
    the thrid and finale epiosde of the series I continue to follow Melanie Lynskey's character as she wants to go to Ohio to get her baby. Big miskate, you are in a race and babies do not belong in races. and there's a bank robbery among the few racers and one was wounded. As I was preparing the review, Fox pull the series due to low rating. A big miskate. Can't you give that show a chance? With Fox, you just can't take a chance at anything. No matter I'm sick of having shows pulled from the air. I haven't even got over ABC pulling of "The Nine."moreless
  • It seems that this week nearly all the drivers have a problem of their own.

    9.5
    Alex along with Corinna win some sort of get a head of the rest prize for being first in the last section of the race, problem was there was a catch and it meant robbing a bank to get the info they needed to get to the next check point and shave miles off there race, so teaming up with Winston & Sean they rob the bank and get what they need, problems arise when Sean is shot by one of the bad race organisers, Wendy receives a call that her son is in danger so she decides to leave the race but her new team mate Ivy pulls a gun on her and demands she stay in the race, Ivy’s ex partners Leigh and Susan though disqualified from the race for not reporting at the last check point on time decide to stay on track and follow one of the racers but come to a untimely accident that resort’s to them being knocked off the road and Susan being killed, Rob the Marine finds out that he’s officially A.W.O.L and it’s all his wife’s fault, he face’s court marshal and has to report to his Marine H.Q thus possibly leaving the race. The only two that we didn’t focus on this week was John and daughter Violet however next week we may find out more about these two. Another nice action packed episode that was a little lacking from the previous episodes.moreless

  • Wow...hands down great episode with a nailbiting ending

    9.2
    This episode started out kind of slow, however, it picked up really fast. We start the episode finding out that Alex has won a get ahead pass. We see Winston back to his ways of trying to be a bad ass and dragging Sean with him. They follow Alex and Corinna to try to get ahead of the other racers, but Alex fools him and eventually lose them. Then we see that Wendy received a call saying her child may be in danger, which provokes her to turn her van around and Ivy pulling a gun on her. I smell a trap for Wendy, which is really sad because she seems very innocent and only wanting the best for her child. Too bad Ivy is depending on her since she doesn't know how to drive. We see Susan and Leigh truck on through the race even though they were cheated out of it and they needed a new car. They find a phone Rob, who apparently is out of the race I guess, and which Susan believes is a sign from God. However, she forgot to tell Leigh that God told her Leigh would win the race, not Susan. It's just too bad that they were run off the road by that hugh truck, which I think is from the officials of the race; and its too bad that since Susan finally got to have more of a part in the series in this episode, they had to kill her off. At least we can be rooting for Leigh because she's going where "Lee surrendered", but not this Leigh like she said. We come back to Alex and Corrina as they figure out the only way to get ahead is to rob a bank, but they need a little help so they recruit Winston and Sean, which were vital assets, but things take a turn for the worst as Sean is shot and he shoots the cop trying to catch them. The ending of the episode showed how Alex's old self is coming back only in the effort to save his wife and it showed his leadership as he took Sean to apparently an unlicensed surgeon. The previews for the next episode look great and I am really looking forward to this series as it develops into a greater series.moreless

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Susan: Even the garden of Eden had a snake.

      This is an allusion to the Biblical garden of Eden, the place where God placed Adam and Eve, the first people created to live. The garden of Eden was a paradise where Adam and Eve had perfect communion with God. However, Satan, in the form of a snake, tempted the couple to disobey God. They did, committing the first sin, and were banished from the garden. This is recounted in the second and third chapters of the book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible.
