Re: Colony on USA January 14, 2016

Josh Holloway was one of the best parts of an ultimately disappointing Lost. I hope he and his series does well. We'll see though if the show offers WalkingDeadesque Lori who wasn't very well liked. Hopefully Sarah Wayne Callies can break free of that identity.

Re: Colony on USA January 14, 2016

Wow! That was great first episode! If the rest of the series lives up to the pilot, then this will surely be a hit.

What do you do when everything you know is threatened? Do you rise up and fight back, risking everything and everyone you love or do you co-operate and protect your spouse and children? Talk about a rock and a hard place!

I think it's an easier decision when it's just you but when your children's safety is held over your head -- it's a different story. Josh Holloway was at his best, IMO. We saw the strong hero that he is and the vulnerable father and husband that he also is. And to think his wife is now his unknown target!

I'm in!

I did like Josh as usual. He has great screen presence and leading-man charisma. He's at that point of his career, kind of like Harrison Ford was at this stage, when the rascally side is giving way to more mature roles. I wouldn't mind if he could get a chance to flash the charm and smile a bit more here, but it's obviously an intense part.

It seemed to be a relatively competent and professional opener (I actually watched it weeks ago on the usa website). It has Cuse's touch. I only hope that as he doles out the developments, he knows where he's going. These sci-fi serials aren't as unusual as they were when Lost came out, but what would put it over would be a satisfying completion to the concept. I'm more likely to dip in and out of it from time to time; it hasn't quite hooked me yet.

As for the cast, I liked Josh of course, and the guy who played the oily businessman. But while I didn't mind the actress who played Josh's wife, I couldn't help picturing Evangeline Lilly in the role--she and JH just had such chemistry.

Good to see him back.

Re: Colony on USA January 14, 2016

I have this set up to record. The start time is 11pm here in the Mountain time zone, so we sort of got a crap time. But I have a series recording ready for it, so I plan to give it a chance.

I tried his last show, but found it too predictable. It got old quickly and got cancelled.

Re: Colony on USA January 14, 2016

I agree about Josh's previous show, Intelligence.

As for episode 1, I already don't like the wife. Nothing like being a mole. I really don't think that the resistance will give a damn about Wil. They would consider him collateral damage.

I did enjoy the episode. Lots more of setting up character and story arcs to come. Hope this show works out.

btw glad they left JH scruffy.

Re: Colony on USA January 14, 2016

JH's character is too strait and I feel this will also be too predictable.

They need to do a LOST spinoff for Sawyer.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I thought it was a great premiere. What I didn't like was Josh Holloway reprising his look as Sawyer. On a couple of occasions, I even found myself calling him Sawyer instead of Will. But, that was my only complaint.

I wasn't prepared for this to be another "aliens take-over the Earth" plot. I guess I should've read the series synopsis. But, I was glad they weren't shown. Or, were the "red hats" the aliens? I just don't think I'm ready for another rat eating lizard aliens series.

I was also very surprised I felt the emotional intensity in the series so early. When Will went missing and Katie went searching, I was seating on the edge of my seat expecting her to be caught as well. Then to find out she's part of the Resistance was completely surprising. I didn't see that coming.

All in all, a nice series premiere. I look forward to the next installment.

Re: Colony on USA January 14, 2016

I haven't watched it yet but will soon.

I was sure that Josh would have been a much bigger star by now. Maybe his accent is holding him back? I don't see how as Mconoughy does just fine with his.

EDIT: I've watched it and it was well produced. The wife being Lori from The Walking Dead will turn some people off as she was annoying at times. Although I didn't hate her as much as others seemed to. Her being a mole is a bit of a turnoff though. a bit too convenient.

Not to mention his wife is a brunette named "Katie." Really?

My problem with this is that Carleton Cuse is one of TPTB, and I've been burned before.
