Save Tim Minear's Drive: Season 1 to your Netflix movie list. Never too early I say!

Went to Netflix and came across, "Drive: Season 1" on the Save list. How does that happen?! Not one episode is aired, but there is already a deal with Netflix? Interesting...

I thought there was already a drive (hehe) to save the show from cancellation...

Netflix always puts these things up well ahead of time (e.g. the next Harry Potter movie is up). Plus these are the days of DVDs the day after the premiere (24) and pilots on DVD before they air (Studio 60, Kidnapped).

That would be located here: http://www.drivefans.com/
Is it completely unreasonable to want people to have a postiive attitude about the longevity of this show? TV's next big hit, Drive will be a fantastic success and last for many many seasons.

IJS!
I'm totally excited for Drive. For my part, the macabre humor is purely jest (and honestly, Tim himself started it ;-). I am very much looking forward to it being a great show for years.
Edited to remove signature.
TamaraC, that's exactly what I'm afraid of. Angel is the only Minear show that didn't jump the shark every season after the first!

(But for serious, I think most of us do expect (once again) that this show will be the one for Tim. We just put on a cynical front because we've been hurt before.)

Don't you have to have a second season before you can jump the shark?
So has anybody who has Netflix added Drive to their movie list?
I've added it. Pretty straightforward.

This seems to work better with stuff that's already out, but not available in their library. I asked for Space: Above and Beyond, and now it's available, when it was not available before. I have no doubt they'll pick up Drive on DVD when it becomes available.
The Netflix show description incorrectly lists Alan Ruck as still being a cast member. Sigh. He's not listed under cast, however.

I suppose the benefit of our adding this to our respective queues is to prompt Netflix to pre-order a sufficient bunch of discs. I don't know if they share data with Fox Television, (before the DVDs are released,) but that might also help the network gauge prospective interest...

Also, yes, I added Drive to my Netflix save queue as well.

Added as well, though I do wonder what the result will be (probably just pre-order datamining on the part of NetFlix).
I've added it to my queue as well. I really hope this series is as great as it can be and makes Mr. Fillion a HUGE tv star.

Wish they would have some pre-order datamining for Two guys and a girl/Two guys, a girl and a pizza place.
