10:32 am - Hear There Was an Idea Regarding Beagles?
So, you guys remember when I wrote about Tim Minear's new series, Drive? I read the pilot and it was awesome? Do you read anything I write? Come on, you guys. It's about cars! That go vroom vroom! And probably kill people. There's a race, and it's a thing, and it's going to be a great show.

NATHAN FILLION WILL BE STARRING.

Yeah, that got your attention, huh? (My reaction was: HOLY MOTHERFUCKING FUCK FUCK BANANAS.)

Why isn't it spring yet?

Poll #888815 NOW watch this *Drive*?

How excited are you about Drive now?

You do realize it's on FOX, right?

Is Nick Lea still attached? Because that is who got me excited. I like Nathan Fillion enough, but don't go gaga like most apparently do. And the Lost comparisons have me a bit "meh."

Sadly, Nick Lea is no longer attached. Nathan makes up for it, for me, but I'd rather have both of them. I'm excited about Nathan because he can play both comedy and drama really well, often at the same time.

As far as the Lost comparisons go, I trust Tim not to make the same mistakes.

Too bad Fox will air it out of order and then cancel it. What? We aren't just assuming that at this point?

I think this could actually be a hit. Viewers love conspiracies these days, right? It's The Amazing Race: Conspiracy Edition!

Hmmmm - I think I have a wait and see attitude. I like Nathan and you're right, he does do drama and comedy equally well. Still . . . . . I think I'm in the wait and see camp and you have no wait and see option. But I do like the fuck banannas option. (why does everything sound incredibly dirty today)

I don't think I've EVER been this excited for new show. Well, except Alias and we all know how THAT turned out.

Hey, it was totally awesome for two seasons, at least.

Not that excited. I've never been thrilled with his acting.

I had also heard that it's set to shoot in the Spring, not air in the Spring. If it is airing, that'd be awesome.

If there were a "Nathan Fillion = SIGN ME UP" option, I'd have picked it. Yay for show!

Pretty much all of these comments crack me up. You should point people to that Prodigy video as a demonstration of what the show will be like. And the guys running into the pillars is what we will feel like when FOX does the FOX thing that they do when they do what they do because they are JERKS. With a capital J. :-p

Heeeee, yeah, I considered linking that video! But then I got lazy.

Actually, the guys running into the pillars is what the characters will feel like when TIM does the TIM thing that he does does when he does what he does because he is EVIL. With a capital E.

Come for the Tim, stay for the Nathan. Or vice versa.

You know Tim is Will right? Which means Tim is Erin. Confusing.

Anyway Tim = Will, Nathan Fillion = Mal, Tim + Nathan = KIBA SPLODEY HAPPY!

You do realize, Sunil, that I had to pick "HOLY MOTHERFUCKING FUCK FUCK BANANAS" just for the reason that it made me giggle uncontrollably? Regardless of the fact that I am indeed way psyched about the potential of Tim and Nathan awesomeshowyaycantwait! =D

Regardless of that, "HOLY MOTHERFUCKING FUCK FUCK BANANAS" is the trump card and scores for the win.

Hee. It does seem to be a hit.

Maybe it should be an icon. Like eirefaerie's pretty HOLY FUCKING CRAPBALLS icon.

Damn you, Fox. I was looking through my entries from 2002, and every single entry about Firefly ends with some variation on "...too bad this will be off the air by the end of the year because Fox sucks." I didn't even watch more than half of Wonderfalls because I already knew it would be cancelled and I didn't want to get attached.

But...Nathan...!!
