Is anyone else watching Blood Drive on Syfy? This is so not my usual type of show - I've never been a fan of grindhouse/exploitation stuff or anything like that - but I tuned in for Colin Cunningham and ended up really impressed by the quality of what they're doing. It starts out very silly and over the top and gratuitous but quickly starts to have interesting things to say about corporate greed, social mores, and looooots of meta about production companies and the entertainment industry. Plus, it's seriously funny.

It also looks good, especially considering the low tv budget they were working with. Excellent makeup, costuming, cinematography, practical effects, etc. So far they've done send-ups of everything from death race style films to zombies to cannibals to Mad Max wasteland type themes.

Most of the fannish squee is on Twitter, and I only have one other friend watching it afaik. Anyone else? Hannibal crowd, you might like this, though it's about as opposite in tone as you can get. Possibly more graphic, though, so if you don't like that then stay far away. I'm actually surprised by what they get away with, considering this isn't HBO or Showtime. Evidently you can say "fuck" on Syfy now, who knew.
