Colony is a naturalistic drama about a family that's torn by opposing forces and makes difficult decisions as its members balance staying together with surviving the struggle of the human race. Set in the near future, the story takes place in Los Angeles, which exists in a state of occupation by a force of outside intruders. Some people choose to collaborate with the authorities and benefit from the new order, while others rebel and suffer the consequences. Josh Holloway stars in Colony as Will Bowman a former FBI agent who — in a bid to protect his family — is forced to collaborate with the occupational government to bring down the growing resistance movement inside the L.A. colony. Sarah Wayne Callies co-stars as Katie Bowman, Will's wife and a mother of three who struggles daily to keep her family safe and united in an occupied Los Angeles.
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.
