Remaining "The Inside" scripts posted online at TimMinear.net. Also available is the shooting script for the Firefly episode 'Bushwhacked'.

FWIW, Tim today also posted the shooting script (PDF) for the Firefly episode Bushwacked. I think this may be available elsewhere, but this time it's official!

I noticed that they've also put a Firefly script as well so I added that to your subject line.
Well, now. Amn't I redundant?
Any word on Tim's future plans?
Madhatter, I think he is still shooting Drive at the moment.
Thanks, Kessie.
Holy crap, I don't know if the last episode is one of the scripts made just available, but the Serenity reference in the teaser is great! I wish I would have gotten the chance to see Adam Baldwin yawning at his own film. Any word on the DVD?
The first The Inside scripts posted were Tim in all his creepy goodness. I can't wait to read the "new" ones -- thanks for the link, Jackal!
Tim is indeed shooting Drive still, I believe, in LA. I think the director of NBC's "Heroes" is doing it, but might be wrong - either way, they waited for a good director Tim said, rather than rushing into it. Which is a good thing.

I'm looking at having a campaign thing for the (official) The Inside DVDs in a few months time.

Also, as if it wasn't already evident, I'm looking forward to Drive, like, a lot. It seems very accessible (read: hopefully it gets picked) and I'd imagine could run for a good while. Plus, the spoilers out there sound great. Not that I've read them, or anything.
I think "The Inside" is beginning in July in france (and, that's not a joke, the 4th of july).

What's the concept of "Drive"?
Well, now. Amn't I redundant?


Nah. Owing to heavy traffic earlier (no idea why but I will find out, oh yes), it took ages for me post that comment.
Drive is an illegal roadrace started by Howard Hughes and Hearst way back. People register for it, are coerced into it, and accidently find themselves in it. The winner(s) receive a cash prize of 32 million dollars. Sort of like Fight Club, the first rule of the Race is that you don't talk about The Race, which makes the thing very mythic to its participants, who are kept in the dark about many of the hurdles they must overcome to complete each leg.

It's part character study of what ordinary people will do to themselves and each other in order to win/stay alive, and part nailbiter action flick.

It reminds me a little bit of the Stephen King short story, "The Long Walk," in that there's a life or death aspect to winning, but that the nature of the race is such that you build intense relationships with those around you even though your winning means that something terrible probably happens to the others. It has that sort of vibe of intensity.

Um. Why aren't I writing? Back to it.
I'm depressed even further that this ended.
Wonder if Minear is still working on The Moon is a Harsh Mistress? The IMDB said something about it a while back...
wouldestous, they were finding a director for it last I heard... I think. Don't quote me on that.

This side, the relationships built during the race, was also at the heart of King's "The Long Walk" (and this was even bitter since they all knew only one of the walkers could survive!).

"Drive" makes me think about a mix between King's book and this old movie with Tony Curtis (it was "Les fous du volants" in french, and gave birth to a series of cartoon by WB I believe). If I get a chance, I'll give Drive a chance.
I'm just wondering how a show about a race can hold several seasons.

Oh, my bad, it only needs to make 13 episodes. :-/

(I, too, want to know what's going on with Moon is a Harsh Mistress. I love that book, and I'm really looking forward to seeing what Tim can do with it)
The Inside will apparantly air in Ireland on Channel 6, "sometime after the summer". At least that's what they told me when I emailed them a few months ago. Side note: I also asked them about the possibility of airing Firefly too, they said thay had no plans at present, but thanked me for my recommendation. Any Irish fans out there, get emailing, and maybe they'll consider it more seriously.

Any news on when Drive will air? Is it likely to be amid-season show at this point?

I need my Minear fix!!
