Blood Drive is set in the dystopian "distant future" of the year 1999, after the "Great Fracking Quakes" have literally split the United States apart, with a giant ravine called "the Scar" being formed roughly along the route of the Mississippi River. A mega-corporation, Heart Enterprises, exploits strange discoveries from the bottom of the Scar to become ubiquitous across American politics, society, and the economy. Meanwhile, as a result of environmental decline, water has become scarce and gasoline prohibitively expensive.

 

The series features Los Angeles Police Department officer Arthur Bailey (Alan Ritchson), aka Barbie, being forced to partner up with Grace D'Argento (Christina Ochoa), a dangerous femme fatale who has an agenda of her own, as they take part in a death race where the cars run on human blood - the titular Blood Drive, whose master of ceremonies, Julian Slink (Colin Cunningham), is secretly a Heart employee. As they make their way through the Blood Drive, Arthur and Grace realize that Heart has been involved in their own pasts, as well.

I am hooked on this ridiculous show. It's chock full of over the top death race action, camp and gore. I'm actually pretty surprised a show this severe made it onto regular cable. If you're into grindhouse, dark humor, ultra violence and dystopian themes, this series is for you. Every episode is like a mini grindhouse feature.

Apparently, the show has been offending a lot of people so they added a complaint line.

I watched the first episode a couple of days ago, really enjoyed it, it's a stylised crimson filled gore fest and it does it very well. At times it reminded me of Machete with Danny Trejo which is a good thing. Looking forward to what the rest of the series brings.

Yeah, Machete is grindhouse so it's in the same genre. I just finished ep 10 and can safely say that this sh*t definitely gets more and more insane with every episode.

Some bad news, it's been cancelled.

It's a pity, the show was very different from anything else on tv.

I had a feeling it wouldn't last past season one. It seems a little too severe to grab a mainstream following. Maybe they'll spin it off into a new series on another network or streaming service. That prison thing could be interesting.

Yeah I can't help but think that a streaming service like Netflix would have been a good fit, although they cancelled it SyFy brought it to us too, so kudos to them for that.
