Trivia

The idea exploring the secret military experimental use of low-frequency waves is based on two real-life military experiments, Project HAARP and Project ELF. The former is an army experiment dealing with electromagnetic radiation in the Earth's ionosphere, and the second is a navy experiment dealing with long wavelengths. See more »

Goofs

The most fuel efficient version of the 1968 Chevy Caprice had a 24 gallon tank and is rated by the EPA as getting 10 miles per gallon. That puts the maximum range of the vehicle at 240 miles on a single tank of gas. Highway 36, as it winds through the mountains of California from Susanville to Hydesville, is 243 miles long. As the crow flies, Susanville is still over 30 miles from the Nevada border while Hydesville is still more than 10 miles from the coast. At the 80+ miles per hour speeds depicted in this episode, there is no way that vehicle could have made it from the Nevada state line to the coast on a single tank of gas. See more »

"On behalf of the international Jewish conspiracy, I just need to inform you that we're almost out of gas."
19 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Drive" continues an excellent stretch of episodes forming the canvas for season six and is one of the better stand-alone representatives of its particular year. As its title would imply it is a very driving episode, with tension escalating from the news-camera teaser all the way to the tragic final act. Though Mulder and Scully are dispatched to investigate surfeits of suspicious fertilizer, the two agents get caught up in a high-speed road trip when Mulder crosses paths with Patrick Crump (Bryan Cranston), who lived close to a military facility where electromagnetic experiments took place. As a result the frequency in his skull (forgive my scientific unenlightenment) is increasing, and unless Mulder can escort him west and at increasingly higher speeds, his head will explode. Forgive the far-fetched premise and you have one hell of a thrilling episode, penned by the great Vince Gilligan. "Drive" works well as an engaging isolated story, but also in the grander scheme of the overarching plot, where Mulder and Scully have been stripped of their former privileges and are forced to take greater risks on their pursuit of The Truth. This makes the build-up to the episode's denouement all the more exciting. I give it a 9/10.
