In the not-too-distant future, Los Angeles has been invaded and occupied by outside forces, causing a rift between the city's residents; some have collaborated with the occupation, while others are rebelling and suffering the consequences that come with that choice. Former FBI agent Will Bowman and his wife, Katie, must consider their familial obligations when making their decision because they were separated from their son, Bram, during the invasion. Proxy Snyder, a cunning and powerful leader within the occupational government, offers Will the opportunity to get Bram back if he works with the invading faction. Will's decision doesn't sit well with Katie, but the couple risk their lives -- and their relationship -- to protect their family.
If most genre shows earn devoted followings by creating a unique flavor all their own, then "Colony" is a gumbo that throws in everything it thinks might taste good. Borrowing tropes, storylines, and even actors from noteworthy series that came before, the new USA series isn’t the most original or inventive program out there. But damn, it’s a lot of fun...The larger mysteries of the series also pull the viewer in, because they’re legitimately abstract, and yet have large consequences for the story. It’s unclear who the aliens are or what their larger plan is—no one Will knows has ever seen one (so far as he knows, anyway), despite seeing their ships roar into and out of the sky at night. That frustrated sense of not knowing lends weight to both the anger of the resistance and the resigned inevitability, on the part of the collaborators, of things as they are. No one is really right, and no one is wholly wrong...Again, these are compelling stories, not merely because they hold conceptual appeal, but because "Colony" executes them with fast-paced fun and breathless verve.--Alex McLevy, A.V.
