I just found out that Blood Drive was cancelled. This is tragic. That show was fantastic. Pretty much every episode is an homage to a different 70s or 80s splatter movie, with a Death Race framing story around it. They do Big Trouble, they do A Boy and His Dog, one of the MacGuffins is 2-4-5 Trioxin, from Return of the Living Dead. They even went to a town called Cronenburgh -- I died. And the season doesn't end on a cliffhanger, so that's nice. They had more to tell, but they wrapped up the first story, more or less.
I had a couple of friends say, "Um, I watched the first episode and that was pretty stupid." No. That just means you haven't acclimated yet. Have another drink and let it wash over you.
Aww. I haven't watched any of it but I just assumed I would love it too. I guess the cancellation is my fault.
I heard the (political-at-the-network) thing that killed it was their refusal to do a 'Carpool Karaoke with James Corden'.
P.S. Ofc I'm making this up, aiming for humour. James Corden's gristle, blood and humour.
P.P.S. Sometimes we make jokes that transgress -- please don't kill anybody -- I live among Europe-resident people who have running jokes about how offensively bland Corden is. Failing to spot humour is crucial to the cancellation of Blood Drive.
I really enjoyed this show. It was nuts, and owned it hard. It's too bad we can't have nice things.
Maaaaaaan. I only just found about this because of this post. 2 episodes in and it has me.
We really can't have nice things.
Glad I saw that much! It'll catch on as E.R. fare, though. Maybe they'll bring back the 'Trams Gone Mad' thing from the 1870s. 'What happened to the Draft Horses/Chickens/Pugs/Monkeys/Ceramicists?'
