Colony isn't exactly dense with hope. But here in Season 2, it remains filled with great ideas that make it challenging television, in the best way.

Like any good sci-fi show, Colony is tuned in to the world at large.

In fact, as of this moment, I have absolutely no idea where Colony Season 2 is heading, and I freakin' love it.

Jan 22, 2017 | Rating: 4.75/5 | Full Review…

Even though the first Ep starts off painfully slow and is worth skipping, the next 3 eps of S2 brings back the intrigue and mystery that I love.

Jan 16, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Colony's nebulous storytelling style is its hook. Piecing together its story is half, if not all of, the fun.

Jan 13, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Colony is a vastly improved show in season two. It's going to give fans exactly what they want while also building on the mythology it's already presented. If one wasn't a fan of season one, there's reason to tune in for season two.

    Better than the first season, this season was lots of fun to watch, even if the narrative did jump around a bit sometimes.

    Interesting progression from Season 1. Characters continue to develop. Enjoy the classic multi-plot theme as it unfolds

    Really good show, only spoilt by the breaking of belief as Kate and the elder son would both be dead multiple times. Totally unrealistic in its handling of those characters. Apart from that with a lot of luck the rest would be reasonable within the plot. Given that they aren't your adverse characters to start with. Great premise and the handling of the human relationships is honest is a bit over friendly. I would suspect that the vicious and treacherous nature of man and woman would be more in evidence under that level of stress. It sadly ignores the caprious side of real life with little sight of "wipe out" , instant death or loss , no sign of the maiming of people. They are all fine and dandy and oddly win cash and prizes in the plot. Job offers easy access to insulin know where a hoard of art treasures lie evade all survalence and when caught it's an unaccknolaged freind who wipe the evidence out. The list is long of their luck. Still overall outstanding as it does cover for me in a much more real way the times and issues we would face if such an event happened and they do it in an engaging way. Well worth a watch

    The series is really going great now. The main characters have been established and have depth, bigger picture is being revealed and lovers of sci-fi will be much happier.

    I love the actors. However, the story is extremely drawn out. Two seasons, and we still don't know what the aliens look like, why they are here, and what their plans are. I wouldn't be surprised if the writers still haven't decided. So instead of developing the alien aspect of the show, the characters were busy playing politics, turning on one another, trying to save their own asses, and killing one another. I really don't see how they are going to successfully fight the aliens. It's a shame. The show had a lot of potential. But by the middle of the second season, I started fast forwarding all the bickering, just to find out what the aliens plans for the colony was, which was nothing telling. I live in California, so I also keep wondering why L.A. never had a water shortage when it was walled in and very few could get through the wall.

    Getting better and better

    Colony began brilliantly but has degraded terribly. The creativity seen int he first season has become an exercise in how dysfunctional the writers can make the Bowman family. After killig off one child, they have written the unbelievable abandonment of the family into the remaining children and the father too, perhaps even the mother. The show has fallen into a pit where the drama is created not by brilliant story telling but by repeatedly poking the viewers in the eye with a sharp stick. The young son should not be dead. The elder son and daughter should not have abandoned their parents. The father should not be wandering the streets of Seattle searching for a way to commit suicide by combat.. Where in season 1 i could have seen this show run a five year arc, now i am hoping it will end with season 2. such a waste.

    Edge of my sear rekinds me of BSG and Incant wait for the next episode.

    This is one of my favorite TV shows of all time!
  • Jun 28, 2018
    This is the greatest show of all time, no doubt about it. It's filmed mostly POV (Point Of View). Aliens come to earth and wall up the big cities. The government declares Martial Law and collaborates with the hosts (The Aliens) to install a Totalitarian and Authoritarian government regime. The new Dictatorship is installed and a resistance up-rises to end the Occupation. Those who resist the new Law go to the Factory (Forced Labor Camp in Space)The Bowman family is caught in the middle of the dispute between the Occupation and the Resistance. This show is how the Bowman family navigates through the new reality.
