Talk Colony Podcast #48: S3 finale discussion with director Tim Southam

Talk Colony Podcast revisits the Colony season 3 finale with director Tim Southam.

We welcomed the opportunity to speak with director Tim Southam about the Colony finale. Tim confirms that the episode was produced as a season finale with hopes of a season 4. The news of Colony‘s cancellation came well after episode 3.13 was finalized.

Tim provides fascinating details about directing this episode among many others since season 1. He has so many wonderful things to share about the cast and crew. Tim speaks so fondly of the fans and their dedication to Colony.

After our “therapeutic” chat with Tim, we visit our usual segments one last time:

  • Who “owned” the episode?
  • Biggest Reveal
  • Josh Holloway hair flip ratings

While Colony has come to a close earlier than anticipated, we will be fans forever! Thank you for celebrating Colony with us!

Talk Colony Podcast #47: Discuss episode 3.12 ‘Bonzo’

We are talking Colony episode 3.12 titled ‘Bonzo’. Jay is back to help Tracey break down an action packed installment of the series.

We talk about Kynes communicating with one of the hosts’ enemy aliens whom Kynes refers to as “her”. It is a mysterious encounter that leaves Kynes a little winded with a message scribbled on his arm.

Jay and Tracey talk about Katie being sidelined from the Resistance action while Amy gets called up for her medical skill set. Jay breaks down the rescue mission to get Kynes out of the Bonzo black site. There are close calls, casualties, and a very narrow escape for an injured Everett Kynes.

The episode leaves us with the Bowman family separated. Will is operating dangerously solo. Katie is alone at home, but she does not even know it. Bram and Gracie take refuge at Meadow’s house.

Talk Colony Podcast #45: Discuss 3.10 and Buzz with Sergio Osuna

Talk Colony Podcast breaks down the latest episode of Colony called ‘Sea Spray’ and interviews Sergio Osuna who plays Everett Kynes’ assistant.

Tracey and Jay review the story lines from the episode and take a look at the character interactions this week. We have a lot to talk about with new information on the number of outliers living “under the radar” and outside the stasis chambers in Seattle.

Amy steps aside while Katie joins forces with Will and Broussard to track down the list of outliers living in Seattle. Snyder pairs with Garland from the IGA to uncover more about Kynes’ agenda for Seattle. There is a lot of sniffing around from all angles this week!

We share our thoughts on:

  • Who “owned” the episode?
  • Biggest Reveal
  • Favorite lines
  • Josh Holloway hair flip ratings

Buzz From The Bloc

We also have the pleasure of speaking with Sergio Osuna who plays Glen on Colony. We find out more about Glen’s job as Kynes’ faithful assistant.

You may recognize Sergio from his role of Rafe on The Magicians. He has also been busy working on a short film called Empty.

We really appreciate Sergio giving us some great “Buzz From The Bloc” and cannot wait to see more from his character this season on Colony.

Talk Colony Podcast #44: Discuss episode 3.09 ‘The Big Empty’

Talk Colony Podcast breaks down Colony episode 3.09 and the intense emotional exchanges between the characters.

Sarah Wayne Callies does a fantastic job both in front of and behind the camera in this week’s episode. As a first time director, she captures powerful moments on screen, some with words and some without. As Jay said, the episode is “riveting”.

Tracey and Jay discuss major plot points. Will’s scowl, and the usual segments:

  • Who owned the episode?
  • Biggest Reveal
  • Best Line
  • Burning Questions
  • Josh Holloway Hair Flip ratings

Talk Colony Podcast #43: Discuss episode 3.08 ‘Lazarus’

Talk Colony Podcast breaks down Colony episode 3.08 this week. Questions and reveals abound as we take an even closer look at the Seattle colony.

Tracey and Jay have a lot of thoughts on Snyder’s visit to the Seattle colony. We have a few questions as well. We speculate on Snyder’s full agenda behind his meeting with the eccentric Everett Kynes.

The co-hosts also talk about a visit Katie backs via Bus D. She is unnerved about the revelation of the bus being re-routed to Portland and the presence of a Transitional Authority bus.

Will teams up with Broussard and Amy for a mission, at least for a little while. Will switches targets, however, when he finds Snyder inside the Seattle colony.

Bram makes a career change and Bramy (Broussard and Amy, I mean, why not?) discover a curious material inside the mystery briefcase.

Talk Colony Podcast #41: Discuss episode 3.07 ‘A Clean, Well-Lighted Place”

Talk Colony Podcast drops some theories about the latest episode of Colony. What’s the real story behind Seattle?

Tune in for our discussion of Colony episode 3.07. The Bowmans, or should I say Daltons, are settled into a new home in Seattle. And “settling” seems to be exactly what Katie (Laura) is doing. Will (James) still has some fight in him, but will Katie come around again?

Everett Kynes had a “model Colony” in mind for Seattle. Things sure like good from a distance, but when you get up close and personal, things seem fishy at best. Everyone is not accounted for.

Tracey and Jay break down the episode and cover their signature segments:

  • Who “owned” the episode?
  • Biggest Reveal
  • Favorite Line

Talk Colony Podcast #36: Discuss Colony S3E3 ‘Sierra Maestra’

Talk Colony Podcast discusses Colony episode 3.03 ‘Sierra Maestra” and gives the Click a name.

We have a guest host this week. Mike Caputo from Pop Culture Review and So Many Shows joins Tracey to dissect Colony episode 3.03.

Episode 3.03 follows the stories of the Bowmans and Uncle Alan settling in at “Resistance Camp” as well as Broussard and Amy’s journey north.

Tracey and Mike talk about the game changers in the episode as well as new mysteries that are unveiled. We walk through the episode in recap fashion and then hit our usual segments.

  • Who “owned” the episode?
  • Biggest Reveal
  • Josh Holloway hair flip ratings

We add a new segment this week – “Best Line” of the episode. Surely, Snyder’s name comes up in this category!

Also, Mike is not a big fan calling the RAP a Click, so he decides to call it “Skippy” instead. It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think? Or, maybe I should say a nice high frequency shriek!

Talk Colony Podcast #35: Discuss S3E2 with Buzz from the Bloc from Tory Kittles

Talk Colony Podcast dissects Colony episode 3.02 and gets some “Buzz from the Bloc” from Tory Kittles who plays Broussard.

It’s time to talk about season 3 episode 2 of Colony on the Talk Colony Podcast. Eric Broussard is literally trying to put the pieces back together after the Rendition of the Los Angeles Bloc. He makes some new friends along the way and uncovers some disturbing information.

Helena learns that the Factory is no more and Snyder plays uncle to the Bowman kids. The Bowmans take a cereal train ride to the Resistance camp.

Tracey and Jay comment on the storylines and raise some interesting questions. The co-hosts also tackle the usual podcast segments:

  • Who “owned” the episode?
  • Biggest Reveal
  • Josh Holloway hair flip ratings

And, finally, we get the “buzz” that Jay has been waiting for – great scoop straight from our hero, actor Tory Kittles.

Colony season 3 – Let’s do this!

It is almost time for Colony to return to USA Network for season 3.

Yes, it was tough waiting for a premiere date, especially after we had become accustomed to the season beginning in January. But it’s coming on May 2nd!

The footage from the trailer has me very intrigued about seeing the story play out, at least in part, outside the confines of a city. The Bowmans are in the woods! And if you watch closely, you will see Snyder with them donning his best lumberjack gear.

Will’s hair is shorter. Oh my gosh, how will we cope without the hair flips?  I’m just hoping he still needs to toss his bangs out of his eyes now and then. Snyder’s hair is a tad longer though and he’s sporting a beard.

Is it hard to see Snyder without the sleek suit and perfectly groomed hair? I kind of wonder if he keeps a table set up inside a tent with a chalice and full place setting even though they are “roughing it”! You can take the Snyder out of the city, but can you take the city out of Snyder? I have a feeling we will get some great “fish out of water” moments.

I would encourage you to take time to check out the videos of the Colony set visits that Amy Vorpahl makes on behalf of Nerdist.com. Hysterical! It doesn’t matter if you are #TeamSnyder or #TeamBroussard. Each have their moments to shine. (Okay, maybe Tory has an edge on Peter in the videos, wink wink!)

Here is Part 1. You can find more on the Nerdist website.

I never tire of the smack talk between Tory Kittles and Peter Jacobson. In fact, I’d like to think I have facilitated (or is it instigated?) that banter historically!

Speaking of #TeamSnyder and #TeamBroussard, be sure to check out Wendy’s shirt designs at ColonyIvasion.com. You’ll never guess which one I chose! Okay, maybe you will. With all my fan love for Broussard, the show would never be complete without Snyder. I need my Snyder too!

And how about Wayne Brady joining the cast? Check out Melissa’s article on So Many Shows for highlights from Wayne and more.

Sarah Wayne Callies makes her directorial debut this season. And it looks like her character gets an up close look at a fallen alien aircraft.

Get ready for more Talk Colony Podcast! Jay and I will be back to break down each episode and bring you lots of fun coverage for Colony! Be sure to let us know what you are most excited about for the new season!

And, remember RAPs are (random alien) people, too! I look forward to enjoying the new season with you all!

 

Talk Colony Podcast #33: Interview with Sgt. Holman actor, Jamison Haase

We are so excited to be back for another episode of the Talk Colony Podcast, especially since we get to bring you a fun-filled, insightful interview with Jamison Haase.

Jamison played Sgt. Holman in the very pivotal scene in the finale of Colony season 2. Holman makes the brave decision to allow the Bowman family and Alan Snyder to leave the Los Angeles Bloc. Of course, then we encounter Snyder pressing that pesky button! But I digress!

Sit back, tune in, and enjoy a truly delightful conversation with Jamison Haase. And don’t miss our special fan guest that pops up to talk to Jamison.

  • What does Broussard really know about Alan Snyder?

Tory also plays the “Will or Katie” game choosing one of the two popular characters for a “host” crazy hypothetical scenarios penned by Jay. And much like Broussard himself, Tory is not afraid to sometimes make his own rules for the game!

Colony ‘Zero Day’: a CON-frontational episode

While there were several showdowns between certain characters in the latest installment of COLONY, there were some cons at work as well, thus the emphasis on “con” in confrontational.  Let us take a look at some of the key interactions in episode 1.09 ‘Zero Day’.

Will and Beau vs. Proxy Snyder

Will and Beau are set on finding a way out of the Los Angeles Bloc.  They begin using the chaotic events that occur on the anniversary of the Arrival to weave a tale of insurgency going on beyond the Wall.  They plant the seed that some insurgents are operating both inside and outside of the bloc boundary.  And thus begins a long con to convince Snyder into giving them safe passage out of the Colony.

Snyder gives them permission to investigate outside the Wall to look for an active cell there.  They plan to scope out a skyscraper that just happens to provide an excellent view of the outlying area.  But they have to take Lagarza’s team with them.

Will cleverly suggests that he and Beau take the even floors while Lagarza’s group takes the odd ones. Having found a way to separate themselves from Lagarza, Will and Beau fake a shootout on the top floor and plant an insurgency map beneath a napkin on the ground. They call for backup and “explain” that they lost the suspects who “escaped” down the back stairwell.  Lagarza finds the map and is convinced there is indeed a cell operating there, one that has found a way in and out of the bloc.

Will, Beau, and Lagarza return to Homeland and report the “shooting” to Snyder.  In a fortuitous turn of events, Snyder reports that his engineers have found an open tunnel beneath the DWP.  This would explain the cell’s access in and out of the bloc. Snyder wants to shut the tunnel down, but Will quickly suggests that use it as a trap instead.  Lagarza agrees.

Maddie vs. Charlotte

Maddie refuses to let anything stand in the way of her son Hudson getting his medication.  She is also not keen on the idea of living a life without means.  Charlotte’s manipulations, however, are getting in the way of both.

After a long day of cleaning Charlotte’s kitchen, Maddie confronts her boss about the lack of trust Charlotte now has in her.  She “apologizes” and makes a peace-offering by sharing the location of some very distinguished pieces of art that no one else knows.  In actuality, Maddie is plotting a con of her own.

Charlotte uses the tip to track down the valuable items and Maddie agrees not to log the Gauguin piece.  Charlotte thinks she has the upper hand now.  Little does she know that Maddie plans to blow the whistle on Charlotte’s art embezzling.

Snyder vs. Nolan

Meanwhile, we learn that Charlotte’s husband, Nolan Burgess, reports to Proxy Snyder.  Snyder tries to find out from Nolan what the Authority’s plans are for undermining the Proxy’s regime and replacing him.  Nolan denies knowing anything about such a proposal. Is Nolan lying? Can Snyder trust him?

Upon learning of Charlotte’s thievery, Snyder uses the information to test Nolan’s loyalty to him. Snyder and the Redhats ascend upon the Burgess property and find the stolen artwork in Charlotte’s office.  Charlotte is carted away and Snyder gives Nolan a pass on the crime in exchange for his loyalty.  I believe some call that blackmail. But in one fell swoop, Maddie gets rid of Charlotte and Snyder gets the upper hand on Nolan.

Broussard and Katie vs. Eckhart’s cell

Broussard and Katie plan to join forces with a new cell consisting of Eckhart, Morgan, and BB.  But first they must be approved by members of the new cell.  The new cell questions Katie’s experience, but Broussard stands by her.  Then the new cell resists giving full disclosure about their intel.  Katie confronts them saying there will be full disclosure or she and Broussard are out.  The two groups merge and embark on their mission to kidnap VIP Hyperion who is traveling on the Metro.

Katie vs. Gracie (and Lindsey)

Katie discovers Gracie reading “The Greatest Day” book that Lindsey had secretly given her.  Katie confronts Gracie about the book when Gracie says things to the effect of kids being the Hosts’ favorites.  Katie is livid when she looks through the book and learns that Lindsey has been trying to indoctrinate Gracie with the agenda of the Hosts. Gracie storms off and Will arrives home.

Will vs. Katie

Finally, we have the confrontation we have all been waiting for!  Will has a plan for Katie and the kids to escape the Colony with Beau via the tunnel while he finds Charlie.  They can all meet up in Black Bear to live a life off the grid and get out from under the Hosts’ thumb.  Brilliant, right? No, Katie does not accept the offer and insists on completing her mission with Broussard for what she considers to be the greater good.

 The couple comes to blows over Katie’s duplicity and wrestle with the state of their marriage.  Katie leaves and Will goes to tell Beau they will not be joining him. It appears that Beau will make the escape on his own and exchanges goodbyes with Will.

The Resistance vs. Hyperion

In the final scenes of ‘Zero Day’, we see the new Resistance team mistakenly blow up the Metro train instead of just nudging it off the tracks.  When they investigate the carnage, they find who or what they believe to be Hyperion.  They are awestruck when they find a robotic, perhaps alien-like masked figure.

Some characters seem to have come out victorious in this episode.  Others lost one or more battles.  And our beloved Bowmans are clearly at a standstill with conflicting points of view.

Next week’s season finale is sure to be as “explosive” as USA Network has been suggesting. Do we really have to wait a whole week?  Until then . . .
