Drive- “Pilot” Recap

with one comment

So did anyone else enjoy the ride tonight on Drive?  I’m always hesitant going into a show that’s been so highly promoted.  After the way The Nine started on ABC, with all those critics saying it was “the best thing on television”, I was wary that this was another situation like that.

….Man, was this so not that kind of show.  After the first 5 minutes, I was totally into the show.  It starts off with Tully (Nathan Fillon, who’s awesome in this role!) racing against another driver down a busy highway….Lots of action…..Anyway, the music coupled with the awesome racing/car chase stuff was spot-on awesome.  I don’t think I’ve thought an old F-150 was a badass looking car, but they do a good job of pulling it off.

There’s a lot of twists and turns throughout the episode that kept me entertained….The show has the whole Lost dynamic, with the mysterious people behind the race (should we call them “The Others”?), but it moves along at a much faster pace… Most all the characters are entertaining as well….I never really connected with the housewives car….

And how cool is it to see the guy from American Graffiti ?  He’s actually quite convincing, and I’m wondering what role he’s going to play in all this…clearly, he reports to someone above him…But who?   One of the many questions left.

I won’t spoil the cliffhanger-ish ending they had, but man was it cool…..I’m looking forward to continuing this ride tomorrow night when Drive moves to it’s permanent timeslot at 8/7c, in the place of the recently departed Prison Break……

Preview the possible Grey’s spinoff…

leave a comment »

TV Addict has some pictures up from the upcoming two-part Grey’s Anatomy episode.

Honestly, it has a much different look than I expected……I’m not as confident that it will work as well as Grey’s has, but I think it’s a pretty sure bet that it will at least get a few lookers from Grey’s to follow it.

Check out the pictures via the link below and see what you think…..Will Addison make it on her own?

A Lost episode without flashbacks?!

leave a comment »

So I just read some news regarding the line up for the rest of this season’s Lost episodes.

I had heard that Jack was going to be the flashback for the final 2-hour finale, but he was also slated for another episode as well.  Apparently that has changed again, and the change is indeed an intriguing one.

Episode 3.19 is going to be the first flashback-free episode of Lost ever….And there’s also going to be a flashback for one of my favorite new characters sooner than expected

To avoid any spoilers, I’ll stop there….

Check out the scoop for yourself.  I’m just intrigued to see how this episode without flashbacks compares to all the others….Could it convince them to use the flashbacks more sparingly?  Who knows?

Lost 3.16 “One of Us” Recap

leave a comment »

So tonight Lost was back in form, and the episode lived up to the hype of what I had read about it. Seriously….let’s get to it….I’ll go with almost all positive tonight, because tonight’s episode was very satisfying.

The Very Good

  • We finally got some freakin’ answers! And a lot of them! The illness, Ethan, etc….I’ll have to watch again!
  • How about that last second encounter between Juliet and Ben…seriously, just when you start to root for Juliet…BAM! Up there with the eating the cereal moment last year.
  • I thought it was hilarious when they were approaching the communication station, and Ben was yelling “Don’t shoot us”…….
  • The flashbacks were enjoyable….I don’t know what it is about Juliet, but she really just fits in as a normal character on this show……
  • Juliet….she’s 2/2 in her episodes rockin’…..I’m seriously thinking that Elizabeth Mitchell deserves some sort of award.

The Bad

  • That it wasn’t longer…..seriously….great stuff. This is setting up the final set of episodes, and has re-energized the show tremendously…..Let’s hope they can keep it up.

Sorry this is so short….I’m thinking this will be updated later, because, once again, I didn’t live blog it….I think that would help a lot…

Discuss!

A look at the next chapter of Heroes

leave a comment »

TV Addict has a preview up for Chapter 19 in the Heroes saga, which returns on April 23rd.

I’m staying away for risk of spoilers within, but if you’re up for it, follow the links.  All I know is Heroes is tops on my list of “Most Awaited TV Shows to return from 7-week long hiatuses”.

Wednesday TV Outlook

leave a comment »

Tonight is somewhat exciting for me…

Friday Night Lights“State“- The title says it all.  The Panthers are playing for the state championship against their former QB, Voodoo.  I’ll be interested in seeing what they wrap up and what they leave open for this one…At least they ordered more scripts for the show….a good sign of things to come, considering this show really……REALLY deserves a second season.  Personally, I’m hoping there’s more development in the Landry storyline….that’s been the highlight the last few episodes.

Lost-“One of Us”- Jack returns to camp with Juliet, and I’m sensing some confrontations brewing.  I also hear Claire comes down with a mystery illness.  Considering that creepy shot of Ethan in all the previews ,could it possibly have something to do with the time he kidnapped her way back when…..I loved the last Juliet episode, and by the looks of it (and according to Ausiello) it will be one of the better episodes this season.  I’m so there!
