Colony: Season 1 Review

I’m a little late to the game with talking about this one, but after finishing season 1 I just had to write a blog post about it! Something you’ll notice about this blog is that I go by UK release dates seen as I’m in the UK, however, even here this show aired a little while ago.

Colony is set in the near future and follows a family (fronted by Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies) who live in a dystopian Los Angeles after an invasion from an extraterrestrial force. The season follows their struggle as they try to survive in a post-invasion world.

You can watch the trailer here.

Despite this the science-fiction elements are pretty non-existance and the dyspotan ones are limited. However, according to the minds behind the show, this was intentional and I’ll admit it does work. Mostly because it’s getting a second season.

In the first season we’re introduced to the world, including new names for things, people, and places, and the rules behind the world. Future sience-fiction elements are hinted at throughout, and glimpsed at in the finale. In the first season we get to know characters and build relationships, ready for season 2 which should hopefully take us deeper into everything.

By the end of the season a lot of questions are answered, but a lot of new ones also pop up. It was a great way to get some indiciation of what might happen during the next season. This show is very entertaining and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Colony will return in 2017 for season 2.

Below the cut are some things I hope to see in the second seasons (contains spoilers).
