Very few shows capture my attention this well
14 January 2016 | by thirdlocksteveSee all my reviews

Josh Holloway (Sawyer, from "Lost") heads a fine cast that includes Peter Jacobson (Taub, from "House") in a thrilling dramatic take on what the world might become once aliens have landed and divided humanity into those who collaborate, and those who suffer if they don't. A wall has been erected to keep the huddled masses out of the 'good' part of California, and the stage is set for conflict and character development. Jacobson's character heads the 'Red Hats', the security forces that enforce the division of mankind into the 'regular' people & 'the new elite'. Smuggling and resistance is a large part of daily life under the alien overlords' rule. The parallels between real life in the 21st century & the fictional world of 'Colony' are nicely handled, and the political statement that the writers are making is clear: there already is a division between the haves & the have-nots is real and disturbing. Robotic drones patrol the skies, your neighbors may turn on you at any minute, and the tension is palpable from the very first scene. I liked the first episode a lot, and I hope the quality of writing stays this high. 'Colony' stands a good chance of being a hit if people tune in, it's really well done.
