It tries to see exactly what we would need to survive and rebuild society under the worst circumstances.

    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…

      Yep. I'm volunteering for the next season lol. But season 1 was far better than season 2 in my opinion. The participants were far more creative, granted almost all of them had degrees in every subject known to man. Still very entertaining, thought-provoking, and insightful.
    • I wish they make a new season

      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.
