Television

Drive

I didn't like Drive, so I don't mourn its cancellation. Actually, after last night's ep I'd developed a dislike for it akin to the dislike I had for The Inside. I'm just not interested in a show that's basic premise is sadists manipulating their puppets. When they ran the two women off the road, and then decided to make sure they were dead (and didn't do a very good job of it for such omnipotent beings, I might add), I decided I'd had enough. It doesn't surprise me in the least that the ratings plummeted with each new ep.

I'm not all that sure I'll even bother with the next show Minear does. His artistic vision seems to have become too gruesome for me. However, I do have one last thought about last night's ep. My uneducated guess is that the security guard that got shot will turn out to have been another employee of the race committee, because they always go for the maximum pain. Just a hunch.
