I give up.
After only two episodes, Fox -- the network which ironically continues to fund Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? -- has canceled Drive.
After watching the first two episodes, I can't say that I was blown away -- but then again, it was only two episodes into the fucking series.
You'd think Tim Minear and Nathan Fillion would've learned from their previous experience with Fox, as they were the co-creator and star (respectively) of my beloved Firefly -- another show that was vanquished quickly due to the moronic shortsightedness of the suits at NewsCorp programming.
So once again, all that hype, all that touting of Drive as the next great television drama, all that money spent on advertising -- only to be unceremoniously dumped like the unpopular girl in a John Hughes movie.
Fuck you, Fox -- just fuck you.
(For a quick refresher course on the kind of idiocy that goes on behind the scenes at a network's programming department, I invite you to take another look at Idiot vs. Predator/3.1.07)
