Same here.. I am too spoiled to my nice living room HDTV to watch stuff on my small computer monitor anymore.

Well I managed to watch the final two episodes. I shouldn't have though, lots and lots of questions that will never be answered. Damn you Fox!

They have some spoilers that answer a few questions. Still leaves a lot to be answered. The show was just getting started. Fox really jumped the gun too quickley on canceling Drive.

I think Fox has a real disconnect between the folks buying shows and the those deciding what stays on the air. The have a bad history of putting unusual shows on the air, then pre-empting them, moving them around in the schedule, changing the order in which their shown (screwing up continuity), and then canceling the shows before they find an audience. And they usually spend big bucks promoting the shows before they even air.

I think that the more they promote an interesting show before it airs, the less likely it is that it'll make it through more than a few episodes. Maybe the promoting is a sign that they have little faith in the show...

They did this to two of my all time favorites: Wonderfalls and Serenity. At least both shows were released on DVD later.

Couldn't agree with you more. Wonderfalls was a great show. I don't know if they just do a bad job promoting these shows or what. I ended up getting the wonderfalls dvd and loved the entire season. I coldn't believe they paid t tape all the episodes and never aired them all. Seems to me fox has some big management issues.
