Drive: Series Premiere 04.15.2007

I really like Nathan Fillion. He was awesome in Firefly. He was awesome in Slither. He’s also fairly awesome in the new Fox show Drive.

Nathan Fillion isn’t the problem.

The problem is the rest of the cast. None of them are inspiring. Their characters are neither interesting nor funny. Either one of the two would make the show better. Instead, they are flat, boring, and cliche.

Even the plot is pretty decent. And the shooting and the pacing are pretty good. It’s just the other characters.

I’ll keep watching this, but they need to get their characters up to par fast. Fillion is funny, witty and engaging. The rest of them aren’t.
