TV Review: Blood Drive 1.1 “The F…ing Cop”

Blood Drive 101-01

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 1: “The F…ing Cop”
Directed by David Straiton
Written by James Roland
Created by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent
Air Date: Wednesday, June 14th, 2017, 10pm

Midnight Grindhouse debuted Blood Drive Wednesday night on Syfy. With a story straight out of a cheap schlocky drive thru double feature, and promising splatter effects akin to Peter Jackson’s early filmography, James Roland’s Blood Drive offered something wholly different from what you’re used to in mid-week cable dramas. Cars with engines that devour human beings, heroes that curse, and all sorts of horror-themed “grindhouse” characters… Blood Drive has it all. The previews promised all sorts of “grindhouse” inspired baddies like cults, cannibals, monsters, and all the raunch you can throw in. Plot and acting are not what is important here. This show proudly attempts to be as in your face and graphically visceral as possible. I’m genuinely excited to see not if the show crosses the line, but how far past the line the show can go.

TV Review: Minority Report 1.5 “The Present”

Minority Report 105-05

Minority Report
Season 1 Episode 5: “The Present”
Directed by David Straiton
Written by Shalisha Francis
Created by Max Borenstein
Starring Stark Sands, Meagan Good, Wilmer Valderrama, Nick Zano, Daniel London, Laura Regan, Zhane Hall, Li Jun Li
Air Date: Monday, October 19th, 2015, 9pm

Last week, Dash (Stark Sands) gained a lot of personality, as he connected with suspected victim, later suspect Fredi (Sheila Vand). He had to talk her down at the end from getting revenge on the preppy jerk who killed her sister. Detective Lara Vega (Meagan Good) is having trouble keeping her working relationship with a precog a secret. Already her partner Akeela (Li Jun Li) knows. Lt. Blake (Wilmer Valderrama) is close to figuring things out. And of course, Dash’s precog siblings are none too thrilled of his involvement in police work. Agatha (Laura Regan) has her own secrets. She was able to obtain stolen files to a new “milkbath” in development. She’s way too nervous and confident at the same time… much more than meets the eye there. Tonight’s Minority Report episode premiered at NYCC last weekend and it’s a doozy. We’ve learned that Vega wanted to follow in father’s footsteps. Now as the episode opens, we watch her father walking his beat, 8-months before pre-crime when he’s gunned down in the rain… and in the background, a certain eyeless man, fans of the film might remember!

Spoilers below.
