So the big news tonight is the return of Heroes. After what’s seemed to be an eternity (well, 7 weeks anyway) we finally start the final chapter of Season 1…..
Drive-“No Turning Back”- You know, I still don’t easily recognize all the names of the racers yet, so I’ll stick to the description posted at Meevee. All I know is Tully has a sweet ride starting this week.
“Corinna is skeptical of an offer that may give her and Alex an advantage; Susan and Leigh weigh their options after Ivy’s actions; Wendy worries about her baby; Rob gets shocking news; and a driver is removed from the race.”
24-“12:00 a.m. – 1:00 a.m.”-At the end of last week, we were left watching Jack leave Doyle on the side of the highway as he went after Audrey….My gut is telling me that people over at CTU won’t be too happy about this….We’ll see. I’ve once again successfully avoided the previews…
Heroes-“.07%”- Sylar confronts Peter, and possibly others, in his continued rampage on all the people with abilities. Also, Nathan and Linderman will be discussing some decisions….Thompson is on the hunt for Claire…..and Hiro renews his vow to “save the world”….This is gonna be good!
This is the first time in weeks that both the Tivo and VCR will be fired up folks…..Get excited!
So I’m glad to have another addition to my TV schedule….Drive rocks!
Drive-“Let the Games Begin”– The preview yesterday went really fast, but I went ahead and took a look at the episode summary via Meevee.
“Legal trouble separates Alex from Corinna; John and Violet try to keep their participation a secret from loved ones; Wendy gets used to a new partner; and Winston attracts unwanted attention.”
I’m still getting all the names straight, but I think I remember seeing some sort of showdown between the military guy and the girl that was on the hitlist last night….I think….Either way, should be another great hour of television.
24-11:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m.- I stayed away from the preview last week because they always seem to reveal so much…but, they do tend to trick me a lot…..I’m guessing something happens when Jack tries to tell CTU he’s going after Audrey…..What is in store for this final set of episodes? They’ve definitely majorly switched over now that all the nukes have been found.
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……
Just a reminder post….It’s only a few short hours until the premiere of Drive on FOX. Honestly, if you haven’t seen at least on preview or commercial for this on TV in the past month or two, I’d be extremely surprised.
Hopefully it’s not the next The Nine, which everybody loves, yet it somehow manages to bomb….At least they’re not calling it the “next big thing in television”, or some crap like that.
Seeing as it is two hours tonight, and another hour tomorrow, I think we’ll have a pretty good idea of just how good or bad it will be by the end of the week.
