In a dystopian future of 1999 Los Angeles, water is scarce and crime is so commonplace that only the worst violence is punished. In a city overrun with corrupt officials, Arthur Bailey is its last good cop and he runs afoul of the dirtiest underground car rally in the world known as Blood Drive.
Its a race where the master of ceremonies is a vaudevillian nightmare, the cars run on human blood, and the drivers are homicidal deviants. His only chance to survive is to partner up with a dangerous femme fatale on the twisted cross-country death race.
alot of time I watch it on demand to watch all the episodes but I love it and hope it gets renewed
I doubt it will be renewed, because the lead actress (Christina Ochoa) is co-starring in CW show coming out this Fall, but imho, Blood Drive should get a second run for next summer. Maybe a new set of lead actors... except Slink. Keep that guy on forever.
By the second episode, the show's (puerile but surprisingly well thought-out) sense of humor started to emerge more clearly and I've been hooked since.
Unlike most shows, which feel like they're written by not-so-bright people trying far too hard to be clever, this feels like it's written by smart people pretending to be dumb in a very self-aware, tongue in cheek way.
I just can't dislike a show that features a cult of post-apoc survivors who speak entirely in 90s corporate buzzwords, even if it gives me flashbacks to working as a management consultant at the time.
Not for everyone, but make sure to give it 2-3 episodes to convince you instead of just the pilot.
