Critic Reviews for Colony Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Jan 20, 2017 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

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

Feb 2, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for Colony: Season 2

  • Aug 05, 2020
    Flagrant plot armour and odd character motivations strain it at times and the Nazi-occupation imagery is a little heavy-handed, but it continues to tell a sci-fi story full of moral gray areas.

    Actors game is good, while scenario lacks a lot. Can't remember any other shows which made me face-palming so much... These series were so magnetic on the idea and so repulsive and disappointing in episodes. Big story lines and challenges resolved with such simple "grand pianos in the bushes" in Season 2, that I started feeling myself stupid watching this.

    Very well written, acted and with a strong political backdrop. Fully recommend it!

    I would love to watch season four... That's only if It ever gets released.
  • Jun 01, 2019
    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
  • Jan 29, 2019
    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.
