Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean an alien drone isn’t about to hunt you down and send you to “The Factory,” a great big prison camp (quite literally) in the sky.
That’s the unsettling reality that pervades every character motivation in Colony, USA Network’s tense new drama from executive producers Carlton Cuse (Lost) and Ryan Condal (Hercules) — premiering tonight at 10/9c — that benefits from an excellent ensemble cast led by Lost‘s Josh Holloway and The Walking Dead‘s Sarah Wayne Callies.

One episode watched for review
Writer and Producer Carlton Cuse has had a very prolific career, being involved with two series, The Strain and Bates Motel, that are currently on the air. One of the most famous shows he’s been involved in, however, is the ABC series Lost, which ended in 2010. Unwilling to rest with working on only two shows, Cuse is set to reunite with Lost star Josh Holloway on his new series on USA, Colony, which Cuse co-created with Ryan Condal. Unfortunately, despite the pedigree, the show itself shows little promise, as its hamstrung by generic plotlines and poorly developed characters.
One of the key issues with Colony is that its world-building provides nothing compelling, instead only raising numerous questions that the show seemingly has no interest in answering. »
