After USA’s recent success at the Golden Globes last week, it’s easy to expect big things from the network that brought us the sleeper hit of 2015 with Mr. Robot. Sadly, their new attempt to break the Internet with a sci-fi blockbuster entitled Colony, fails to deliver the goods.
Labeling the show as a failure is too cruel a thing to say after just one episode, since what this Carlton Cruse (Lost) produced show does bring to the table is potential. Oh yes, that dangerous “p-word” lingering behind everything that “could be” with a show that looks this good. Even with all of its overused tropes, Colony has some good things going for it as well.
