‘Drive’ Screencaps (Part 1)

You may have noticed the frequent updates of late; I’m aiming to update at least once a week, until all of the missing screencaps have been added to the gallery.

In this update, I’ve added MQ screencaptures from Drive – although Amy isn’t credited in episode 1×01, I’ve added the caps (photo frame; posters) anyway – I shall be going through the other episodes to see if Amy has popped up in those, as well as the credited ones. Gallery links and previews are below, enjoy!

Gallery Updates

I’ve updated the gallery with the LQ scans that were mentioned in the previous post (simply for reference, hopefully I’ll be able to replace them myself with full HQ scans) as well as new-old outtakes from ‘The Book LA’ – view the page online titled ‘New Faces’ – and a promotional image for Drive, which I didn’t get around to adding. Hopefully, I’ll be able to add screencaps from that show very soon as well. Gallery links and previews are below, enjoy!

‘Drive’ makes primetime Emmy history

Not Amy related but if Drive wins an Emmy, perhaps the episodes will be released on DVD. Just pure speculation on my part.

Fox’s quickly canceled drama “Drive” has inadvertently made TV academy history on Thursday, becoming the first-ever Primetime Emmy broadband nominee.

Twenty years from now, when Emmy only recognizes programming found on the Internet, historians will point to the mostly forgotten “Drive” as the show that started it all.

Only 50 seconds of the three-minute “Drive” clip nommed Thursday actually aired on TV. Instead, the special effect, titled “The Starting Line,” was streamed on Fox.com — and only ever seen on Fox.com.

The clip – which took a year and a half for special effects shop Zoic Studio to produce – opened up “Drive” by introducing characters as a camera slid from car to car racing down a busy freeway. “The Starting Line” scored a nomination under new rules enacted this year by the org.

Drive; Final Episodes

I’m unsure if Amy will be guest-starring in these episodes but for those of you that have been following the show, the official website states that the final two episodes will be aired back-to-back on July 13th, 8/7c.

EDIT: According to The Futon Critic, Amy only guest-starred in the following episodes: 1×02 – Partners and 1×04 – No Turning Back; both of which you can view at FOX On Demand although, unfortunately, it isn’t available to people outside of the States.

Drive; Final Episodes Update

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but for those of you that have been following the now cancelled series, Drive, FOX has decided not to air the final episodes after all. This has been confirmed by Futon Critic (opens in a new window) which states that season 1 consists of 6 episodes, 2 of which never aired.

I shall try to get hold of the episodes Amy did star in (1×02 and 1×04) so I can add screencaps to the gallery.

Canceled: Drive

If you follow the ratings, surely you’ve noticed that despite Fox’s huge promotional push for Drive, people just weren’t tuning in to the fast-paced drama. While it was up against ABC’s powerhouse Dancing with the Stars, the series didn’t pull in the same ratings as its previous occupant Prison Break. The cancellation is effective immediately and there is no word as to whether Fox plans to air the remaining episodes on the tube or the internet in the near future.

EDIT: The official website has the following posted: “Final 2 Episodes To Air This Summer. Stay Tuned. July 4th, 8/7c”


The Futon Critic has the remaining episodes listed, if you’re interested to see what you might be missing out on.

‘Drive’ Lands Fox In Third Place, ABC Grabs Sunday

SHOULD EVERY FOX SHOW BE given an “American Idol” launching pad?

A case could be made for Fox’s race-themed ensemble drama “Drive,” which didn’t have “Idol” to offer it a jump-start. That said, Fox wanted to give the show a two-hour premiere, so there were fewer slots put in the show.

Fox’s “Drive” could only manage an idling 2.6 rating/7 share among 18-49 viewers on Sunday night, according to preliminary Nielsen results. Such numbers landed the network in third place for the night. The show wasn’t helped by a repeat hour of “The Simpsons” that ran before it, earning a 2.1/7.

Behind the Wheel With the Cast of Drive

IGN TV: Your fellow Joss Whedon/Tim Minear alum Amy Acker plays your kidnapped wife on the show. Have you gotten to work with her yet?

Fillion: Yes. Yes I have. And this is another one of those cases where Tim Minear and I have worked together in the past, and I’m a huge fan of his work and his talent. And he knows what to expect from me when he’s asking me to come and do the show Drive. He knows exactly what to expect from me. Same in regards to Amy Acker. He’s worked with her before, he knows exactly what to expect, and she’s there for a reason. She’s there because she’s extremely talented and she does such a fantastic job. And again, I’m a fan, so it’s real nice for me to be able to work with people who not only I enjoy their company, but I can really respect their talent.
