Drive: Season 1 Reviews

October 5, 2019
It must be said that for all the PR hype about "Drive" using fantastic new special-effects technology, some of the driving looks totally fake, like animation on an arcade game.
October 5, 2019
The plot strains credulity so much that even that action-happy audience might reject the show.
October 5, 2019
The show still lacks the charisma that a serialized story requires to keep viewers coming back for more.
October 5, 2019
Muddled and befuddled from the outset, "Drive" represents a new kind of automotive hybrid -- a scripted treasure hunt designed to look like a reality show, well-stocked with the worst elements of both.

The first hour left me a bit cold, but the second, which arrived yesterday, filled in enough of the blanks to take me as far as Monday.

For the time being, I'm more than happy to strap in and enjoy the ride.
October 4, 2019
Much of "Drive" is unabashedly derivative.
October 4, 2019
The driving sequences are pretty cool, thanks to the latest in video-computer technology.
October 4, 2019
At once exasperating and mesmerizing, utterly ridiculous if you read too much into it but utterly beguiling on its face.
October 4, 2019
All in all, brainless fun.
October 4, 2019
Drive quickly asserts itself as an enjoyably diverting peel-out - brainless but not stupid, a well-stirred conspiracy/action mixture in keeping with Fox's no-seat-belts hits 24 and Prison Break.
October 4, 2019
It has the potential for out-there adventure.
October 4, 2019
With some fine-tuning and bolder steering, Drive could be one souped-up storytelling machine.

Does a solid job of introducing an intriguing, if not exactly convincing, story and some appealing actors.

"Drive" resembles nothing so much as high-end religious propaganda, or pornography before the sex starts: hollow drama with an ulterior motive.
October 3, 2019
With so many unknowns, curiosity compels viewers to watch.

Drive's appeal is fairly straightforward: Heavy-duty road choreography ignites the screen, flooring the action too much for angst or complicated scenarios to block the way.
