It’s back to school for me and I don’t have my saddle shoes!
Anyone remember those? I got a new pair for the first 6 years I was in school. Or close to new. Actually, I usually got my sisters that she grew out of and had to cover the scuffmarks with that white shoe polish that never got as shiny as they claimed it would. Didn’t really matter to me though. What mattered was that those babies really hurt when I kicked someone in the shin with them. Ahhh yes… saddle shoes and metal lunchboxes. How did any of us survive?
Anyhow, tonight I start classes… in what I’m not saying. But it isn’t in archery or Nathan Fillion. Seriously… Nathan Fillion? Pfft. Please. I could teach that class. (Wait… what? Yeah, I don’t know what that means either.)
But speaking of Capt. Tightpants … are you watching Drive? It’s on FOX. Yeah, FOX. They already aired the first three episodes, two on Sunday and the third on Monday.
I liked it. Normally it isn’t really my kind of show but because I knew Tim Minear was involved I decided to give it a shot. Some of the characters annoy me, but the main focus is on Alex Tully, who is pretty damn interesting. At first you think he’s some mild mannered, yet panicked landscaper whose wife has just been kidnapped. But once he’s pulled into the race, you realize he is something else entirely... someone very dark and who isn’t very pleasant if you make the mistake of being on his bad side. Initially some people have compared him to Mal, but Mal was never this scary. It’s so much fun!!
Fox put the first three episodes up on a new My Space page for Drive, so if you want to get caught up you can watch them for free there. So… what are you waiting for! Go!! And then remember to watch the fourth episode this coming Monday at 8:00 PM.
