Blood Drive: Episode 3

In episode 3 Grace and Arthur find themselves having to make a detour in Steel City to fix their car. Something happened in the city and government sent the army to find out. Three times, they tried this. Three times, no one came back. It turns out city is infested with gas guzzling mutants called Glimmers. Oh yeah, there's also a cult of business jargon spewing former executives. The mutants were created when a Heart Enterprises chemical (Trioxin 245, an excellent nod to Return of the Living Dead)

In the episode we also learn more about racers, Cliff and Domi. They may seem like a perfect couple with a hybrid car, but they're in the Blood Drive, so you know they're messed up. In addition, Aki continues Christopher's reeducation. Finally Slink is on an extended conference call with management.

Once again, this bastard steals the show!
I was really entertained by episode. The glimmers of Steel City were cool, even if you didn't really see them much. The crazy corporate jargon cult was really funny. The Cliff and Domi stuff was surprisingly sweet, despite how messed up it was. Three episodes in and I can definitely say that I love this show!

Light causes glimmers to explode instantly. When added to a Blood Engine, Glimmer blood acts like nitrous oxide.
