The Colony Is Fun To Watch

The Colony is a fun movie to watch. This is a movie that is great for whole families to watch.I think that teenagers would get a kick out of this movie.Hal Linden who played the owner of The Colony was very effective.I remember when he played the character of the cop in the 1970s made for television series Barney Miller.This is a very different character for him to play.June Lockhart as the head of the school in The Colony was sinister to say the least.I was thinking that I wouldn't want to have her for the head of any school that I went to.Remember June Lockhart in the television series in the 1960s called LostIn Space? She was a sweet mother in that role.John Ritter was very good as the concerned dad and husband.John Ritter was such a good actor.I really liked the character of the head of security at The Colony.That man was scary!This is one of television's fun movies.
