Show Summary

This show exhibits a controlled experiment that makes us think about how we would survive in the midst of a catastrophe. It tries to see exactly what we would need to survive and rebuild society under the worst circumstances. For 10 weeks, 10 isolated volunteers will have the task of rebuilding what is left of society after a viral outbreak, while finding ways to communicate and get electricity, water and food.

    They got most of the items by the producers placing items there..



    Season one mentioned a number of times that items were left around the area...



    Vladimir Beck's knife was a keep-sake from his son he " on " always kept by his side



    Keep in mind this is a simulation of how people survive by hunting forging and building with materials around them

    I like the theory but all my brain keeps questioning is "Where did they get that from? That fitting? That switch? That bulb? That cable? 12 days food? That material? Those tools? Those torches? That welding gear? Those knives?" I could go on and US we'll gloss over the details for entertainments sake.
  • I really hope they do someday come out with a new season.

    My family sat togather watching EVERY episode of The Colony, season one amd two. We all felt that we really learned from the show. Not only entertaining but also educational. I have a large family of 6 four teenagers and we discussed what our seperate rolls would be and the things we would do for protection, food, shelter, water ect. The posibility of mass distruction, end to current times is a real possibility, one that people do not think about in there normal day to day lives. I really love this show.moreless
  • Different from all reality shows

    I'm not the type of person to watch reality shows. Shows like "Survivor" and "Real World" have never interested me. I figured that "The Colony" would be similar but decided to give it a shot anyway because I was running out of shows to watch at the gym. I fell in love with this show just from the first episode. It's realistic and the emotions and situations are very raw and you feel like it really is happening; because it is.

    Granted, it's not that likely that this perfect blend of people would happen. They consist of very intelligent people: an ER nurse, a doctor, a professor, an aerospace engineer, a machinist, a handyman, a marine biologist...you get the picture. Nonetheless, this show still outlines how hard it is to survive and what people need to focus on for survival. I don't know how they pulled off the apocalyptic atmosphere in an LA urban setting but it was a great show.

    Although I love this show, I hope they aren't any more seasons because I feel like the show would deteriorate and be less realistic. I would recommend this show to anyone who likes shows like Walking Dead.moreless
  • DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S NEWEST REALITY SHOW TAKES ON GLOBAL CATASTROPHE -- AND DOES IT ALL WRONG.

    First Look: The Colony is Just Another Senseless "Social Experiment"

    Why is Hollywood so obsessed with the destruction of the world? Maybe it's because post-apocalyptic societies are fun for the special effects crew. Think about it: They get to engineer over-the-top explosions and large-scale disasters, and the makeup artists get…
