This is something that has been on my watch list for ages because it’s different from what you usually get on TV, a new concept. This is one of those TV shows where everything is a mystery.

So Colony first episode lets just say I’m hazy on everything from what happening to whose who so this is probably gonna be a short review (lol). Basically what I have gathered so far is that this is centred around a family with a dad that has a past and it is set in a futuristic world set in LA with two sides and a curfew, drones and if you have diabetes your screwed cause they don’t give you incillin. So yeah it’s an interesting one!

Everything about this TV show has me interested mainly because of the dystopian side to it and the mystery of how the resistance came about. It has a slight hunger games feel to it but in a more grown up style but I think that will go as more of the back story is revealed.

Both main characters; Will and Katie are intriguing and have a lot of depth to them which starts the show off strong. Also what makes it strong is the ever ending questions of the poor and rich divide which makes the show relatable.

Overall, I thought it was a very good pilot which nowadays because of the amount TV shows being created and the quality and the lack of money put into tv shows they are become more and more okay but not great. I think this has great potential and intrigue that will definitely keep viewers interested. This is one for the lovers of dystopian genre and sci-fi genre.

As usual comment below if you are fan of Colony or want to start watching it.
