Third-episode verdict: Drive

Drive is proving somewhat erratic. After a not terribly great start, it perked right up with a cracking second episode that completely flipped Nathan Fillion’s character. It’s third episode, though, was pretty rubbish, despite a couple of interesting moments. The poor old Carusometer doesn’t know which way to look (does it ever?), so we’re going to hold out for a fifth-episode verdict this time.

The theme tune, incidentally, is growing on me. I’m not sure it’s a great choice for the show itself – I’m petitioning Fox to acquire the rights to ‘Drive!‘, the theme tune to 80s tatt Hardcastle and McCormick – but it’s quite nice in itself.
