In the new series COLONY from USA Network, the Los Angeles area is now under a mysterious state of occupation. The ColonyTV website gives stories of the arrival of the new regime. There are tales of mayhem, separation of families, and threats of violence.
After the initial shock, “Colonists” begin their new lives with new rules and far fewer privileges. Some join a Resistance movement. Others enlist in the new “Red Hat” militia and enforce the laws of the Transitional Authority. Some keep their heads down and hope it all blows over sooner rather than later. Perhaps some try to play more than one side.
So, how would I respond? How would YOU respond? It’s certainly easier to envision how I would hope I would respond rather than have to consider my actual fears.
However, it is these questions that make said story so engaging. This story makes you think outside of your safety net and consider your own strengths and weaknesses.
Once again, I have turned to the growing number of COLONY fans to find out their thoughts on the best way to navigate the travails facing our survivors on screen. I posed three options to fans:
- Lay low
- Join the Resistance asap
- Enlist with the Red Hats
But leave it to the very intelligent fans of COLONY to provide much more creative options. Consider the following ideas shared by fans!
@TalkColonyTV First, lay low, observe and assess. Then join the resistance and enlist with the red hats as a spie. ^__^ I’d do it all. Lol

What can I say? COLONY fans cannot be limited to a mere 3 choices. They are too smart for that!
Complex scenarios and really tough choices already have viewers engaged in COLONY, even ahead of its official premiere this Thursday, January 14th, on USA Network. Thank you Carlton Cuse, Ryan Condal, cast and crew for giving us such a complex story to sink our teeth into! Fans are ready to immerse themselves in the mystery and intrigue of COLONY.
