The Colony

Recently, I began watching Discovery channel’s new series “The Colony”. It is an interesting take on reality TV pitting a cast of “average Joes” against the ruins of LA in a post-collapse scenario. However, I am not too sure how average the survivors are considering their number include a nurse, doctor, and several engineers. At any rate, each week, the cast faces a new challenge of building another contraption to improve their plight in addition to the standard fare of personality conflicts. Can’t we all just get along? The show makes you think and brings up some interesting solutions to such dilemmas as power generation and water purification.

All that said, in my opinion it is well worth your time. Check listings for show times.
