Today I decided to take a look at the new series that is set to start on January 14th on USA called Colony. This is a new series featuring Josh Holloway, for you Lost fans that is the person that played Sawyer. This series is slotted for a 10 episode first season and the pilot episode released on USA’s website for early viewing, which is what I done. I am going to share my thoughts about what the series is about, what I think of it and so on from my perspective below. Keep in mind, I could be completely wrong in my assumptions of what is happening, but hey, that’s what makes blogging fun, right?
So the episode throws us into the world pretty quickly and it’s very apparent that something is going on, something major has changed the world. It is portrayed as an occupation, by whom…or what, I am not sure. After watching the first episode I am assuming it’s some sort of alien, but that’s never really shown in the episode, except the ship hyper-accelerating as a show at one point. But anyway, the show is following two character, a husband and wife (and their kids) as they try to survive in this world. By the end of the episode we learn that the dad was ex-military and FBI in the fugitive program and the people that are part of the occupation want him to work for them. His wife, however, is part of the resistance to get rid of the occupation. Based on what we have seen so far I don’t think the husband knows she is part of the resistance. It seems that there is a line drawn in the sand for those that side with the occupation and those that do not.
After watching the first episode I have to say that I am indeed intrigued and I am in fact excited to see where this series goes. It really does seem like a pretty large undertaking that should be a fun thing to watch!
