Blood Drive 1.13 Season 1 finale

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 13: “Finish Line” (Season 1 Finale)
Created by James Roland
Directed by David Straiton
Written by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle, Alex McGregor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 10pm

Blood Drive on SYFY has gained a cult following since debuting over the Summer. Created by James Roland, the grindhouse series captures the essence of the grit and grainy genre, feeling like a companion piece to the Video Nasty sub-culture of the late ’70s and ’80s. The retro vibe influenced its die hard super fans to adopt the nickname Bleeders on social media. This is the final stretch of the Blood Drive, as the racers are now on course, heading straight toward the evil Heart Enterprises. The unlikely alliance of Grace (Christina Ochoa), Arthur (Alan Ritchson) and Slink (Colin Cunningham) is looking to destroy Heart once and for all.

Last week, Arthur was “Primo,” the Blood Drive King. That was until Grace helped him realize he was being set up to slaughter. Christopher (Thomas Dominique) betrayed him… but it was a Heart-produced robot Christopher, the real one locked away in Heart’s dungeons, along with his cybertronic girlfriend Aki (Marama Corlett). I have to be honest, this is awfully bittersweet. Blood Drive started as pure guilty pleasure, but evolved into a truly unique and memorable viewing experience, each week playing off a different grindhouse sub-genre. It very quickly became my favorite show of 2017. Hopefully, the relentless work of the Bleeders to trend #RenewBloodDrive will get to those in high places and it can somehow gain a second season.

Check out my review for the Season 1 finale of Blood Drive here below.

Blood Drive
Season 1 Episode 12: “Faces of Blood Drive”
Created by James Roland
Directed by David Straiton

Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent, Renee Castle, Alex McGregor
Syfy
Air Date: Wednesday, August 30th, 2017, 10pm

We’ve reached the penultimate episode for Syfy’s grindhouse summer series Blood Drive. That begs the question, WHY THE **** HASN’T THIS SHOW BEEN RENEWED YET?!?! Sorry… Blood Drive has quickly become a cult favorite akin to video nasty-style gore-tastic films it so often pays homage to. Its fanbase on social media are called #Bleeders.

Last week, we finally got to see goody-two-shoes cop Arthur Bailey (Alan Ritchson) snap. Thinking Grace (Christina Ochoa) was killed in the battle dome, he became the Primo, and singlehandedly murdered everyone left in the pit much to the applause of Slink (Colin Cunningham) and the execs at Heart Enterprises. We also watched in awe as Karma (Alex McGregor) emerged from the skin of Old Man Heart to surprise Grace. While all that mayhem and debauchery was taking place, Aki (Marama Corlett) and Christopher (Thomas Dominique) broke into Heart, overriding their systems, allowing them to move unfettered onward to help Arthur. If you couldn’t tell by this week’s title, this episode will likely be an homage to the notorious series of tapes that emerged in the 1980s…

Welcome Bleeders to another recap installment of SYFY’s original series, Blood Drive. Last week, Arthur encountered a town near The Scar which appeared as a paradise. The problem was a mind-altering gas leak from The Scar turned the reality (post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with morlocks) into fantasy (quaint little old timey town where everyone is beautiful). Grace (Christina Ochoa) figured this out quick, but Arthur (Alan Ritchson) was under the spell. Soon, both were in danger of drowning in shit if not for an unlikely hero… Slink (Colin Cunningham). Saving them from death was not a hero’s mission for him; he needed them back in the Blood Drive. Arthur and Grace finally came together. Meanwhile, Aki (Marama Corlett) and Christopher (Thomas Dominique) are finally on the same page and en route to save his old partner. How long will this “friendship” between Grace, Arthur, and Slink last? Let’s find out…

Last week on SYFY’s Blood Drive Grace (Christina Ochoa) drove a wounded and dying Arthur (Alan Ritchson) to the edge of the Scar. The only place around was a bizarre Chinese restaurant, a sort of purgatory for it’s owner. Meanwhile, poor Arthur went on the vision quest from Hell, being tortured physically and mentally, before ending up crucified by his personal demons. The ghosts of Blood Drive past all showed to torment him, and while he languished, Grace made a choice that could save Arthur and possibly put her life on the line. Such is life in the Scar.

Last week on Syfy’s Blood Drive, Arthur and Grace entered the Wild West town of Red River. They were able to get their brain bombs removed, but more problems followed soon after. Grace (Christina Ochoa) squared off with Slink (Colin Cunningham) in an intense showdown in a saloon. Meanwhile Arthur (Alan Ritchson) was a pawn for the evil eyeless sheriff and ended up with a bullet in him near the end. Add this to the list of things Grace feels guilty for…

Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

Sharknado 5: Global Swarming
Directed by Anthony C Ferrante
Written by Thunder Levin, Scotty Mullen
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Cassandra Scerbo, Masiela Lusha, Cody Linley, Charo, Chris Kattan, Fabio, Olivia Newton-John
SyFy | Asylum Productions
Release Date: Sunday, August 6th, 2017, 8:00pm ET

The most wonderful time of the summer is upon us; it’s Sharknado Time! Back in 2013, the Asylum produced the first Sharknado and it “stormed” social media and became an overnight sensation. Here we are, 4 films later ready for the fifth installment of the franchise that helped resurrect the careers of Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. These films are very dear to me, as this marks my 4-year anniversary writing and reviewing for Geeks of Doom. The Sharknado franchise checks all the boxes: sharks, disaster movies, celebrity cameos, hilariously awful special effects… in other words, it’s event TV. This time, the ‘nado has gone global!

Let’s be real, reviewing Sharknado 5: Global Swarming in the same way you review other films or television series it just pointless. You knew years ago from the title alone if these movies were for you. This is now an annual American event, like Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. Fans gather to watch the ridiculousness, laugh at the cameos, and see what crazy stuff the creators come up with next.

Air Date: Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017, 10pm

Last week on Syfy’s original series Blood Drive, a giant monster ran amok, slaughtering Blood Drivers. Sadly, we bade farewell to the Gentleman (Andrew Hall) who went out in an orgy of one liners, and sexual innuendos. Julian Slink (Colin Cunningham) is back in control of the Blood Drive, and has Heart Enterprises by the balls. Of course his glorious victory came with the revelation that he lead Karma to her death… and oh that was not what Grace (Christina Ochoa) wanted to hear. Her entire purpose in the Drive was to rescue Karma and use the winnings to start over. Now her motive is revenge and she has a target. This week, the Blood Drive heads to the wild west town of Red River where Slink and Grace will square off Back to the Future Part III-style.

Sharknado 5 Global Swarming

It’s summer, it was just Shark Week, so it must be time for another Sharknado! Syfy channel’s annual event is soon approaching and this time, the ‘nados are going all over the planet, hitting some of the biggest cities with the largest populations of people aka bait. Whereas the 2013 original from The Asylum focused the hilarious weather phenomenon over Los Angeles, and its sequel went east to New York, things got out of hand quickly, heading to outer space by the time we got to sequels 3 and 4. This time, the jokes seems to edge political, with its title: Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, and its catchphrase, “Make America Bait Again.” No one and nowhere is off limits this time including the Queen of England (Charo), the Prime Minister (Chris Kattan), and the Pope (Fabio)!

Blood Drive on Syfy is television’s weekly foray into grindhouse madness. Last week there were Mad Max-style Amazon biker babes who used men as milk machines, you know the usual. Things came crashing down though for Grace (Christina Ochoa) whose entire motivation for joining the Drive was to rescue and help her sister Karma (Alex McGregor), found out Karma died initiating a rebellion that created the female-dominated society in the desert. The range of of emotions shown by Ochoa was fascinating. Usually such a sarcastic stone-cold badass, the episode ended with her heartbroken to silence as Arthur (Alan Ritchson), ever the steadfast and stoic good guy, tried desperately to reassure her things would get better. Getting better, is staying alive in the Blood Drive and defeating Heart Enterprises.
