Eh...they only had two episodes left to burn anyway (only six hours were actually filmed). Better to pull it now and reap the "Includes 2 never before seen episodes!" on an upcoming DVD release.

Watched the premiere and enjoyed it, but haven't watched the others. Guess I won't bother now. I need the extra space on my DVR anyway ...

And why don't you wash your balls, ivelostr2? You know, you really should.

Fox is the worst EVER! They expect everything to be a huge hit right out of the gate it seems. They giving nothing a chance to grow. Also, it might have helped if the promos didn't suck.

I wouldn't say it was great, but it was SOMETHING to watch on Mondays.

I was wondering why I couldn't find it when I tried to add it to my new dish DVR que.

I thought the word on The Inside was that they weren't going to bother.

Maybe they'll reconsider now that they can offer a Drive/The Inside two pack.

Crap! It was the only thing I had to look forward to on Monday night. I guess I'll make it an extended movie night.

I called this after those horrid previews, but only 4 episodes?! Wow...I'm honestly starting to think Firefly had a fair shot (and that's not saying much!)

Maybe they should let the shows run -- preferably when scheduled -- and yank a few Fox execs. What a pathetic excuse for a network.

Nathan Fillon is a B-list actor who couldn't carry a show if he tried. Firefly was horrible and Drive was no exception. Maybe Nathan's agent can get him some commercials to star in.

I seriously think you'd have to be souless to think Firefly was horrible, well I mean if I believed in souls anyway.

** Too stunned to reply **

According to Drive's official site, the two remaining episodes will air back-to-back on July 4th.

I thought twelve episodes were filmed? With six airing now and then the other six airing later this summer?

They ordered 13 episodes, but only 6 were filmed. So the two airing on July 4 will do it for the series.

I usually enjoy thought provoking tv, but once in a while I like to get lost in mindless entertainment. Drive did that for me. I really dug Fastlane and got mocked for it, but didn't care...

I just don't get network's nowadays. Don't they realize that there are other stations out there that are airing shows also. Not EVERY show can pull in American-Idol like numbers!

All I ask for is 7 original nights of programming. Re-airing shows like Grey's Anatomy and House on different nights in the same week is tiresome....

Yes, but when you have the TiVo tuner capacity for 3 shows and there's 4 on you want to watch, that Friday Grey's repeat comes in handy.

He's cursed on both the big and the small screen. Not sure if it's him or the projects he chooses, but I personally am inclined towards the latter since I haven't liked any of his shows or movies.

In case anyone still cares, FOX has rescheduled the burn off of the final two episodes. The episodes are now scheduled to air on Friday, July 13 from 8-10 ET. I emphasize the phrase scheduled to air.
