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.

January 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.

January 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.

January 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

The fight against alien occupation continues into a second action-packed season of Colony. Once outside of the Los Angeles bloc Will seeks out his old partner to help him find his lost son; meanwhile his wife Katie pressures her sister to use her influence with the new bloc governor to try to get her eldest son out of a work camp, but unknown to Katie her son has become radicalized by a new human terrorist group. The show tackles some interesting and controversial themes this season, such as suicide bombing and CCTV surveillance. And, the writers do a good job at ratcheting up the tension and suspense as Will and his family are beset on all sides by the totalitarian government, radical terrorists, and internal strife. There are also some interesting additions to the mythos, including an outside resistance movement and an alien inspired religion. However, the direction of the series necessitates the exit of several interesting recurring characters. Remarkably daring and gritty, Season 2 of Colony is a solid follow up to the first that expands and enriches the series.
