Plot-wise, a lot went down on the season one finale of USA’s Colony but despite all the interesting cliffhangers, I was left feeling like it was missing some good emotional beats.
We’ve come to the second to last episode of the first season of USA’s Colony. There are still many questions, but a couple storylines did come to a head in this episode, leaving me wondering what surprises are left for the finale next week.
Last night’s episode of Colony gave us a couple Lost-esque moments. Were they “We have to go back, Kate!” moments? No. But they wet the pallet enough for me to believe the show can perhaps get close to that one day.
Stuff is about to go down in the world of Colony. If they can sprinkle in some actual sci-fi for me in the final three episodes and keep up this level of storytelling, I’ll be happy.
Last night’s episode of USA’s Colony gave us a lot to chew on. In ways, it was the heartiest episode yet.
Things are heating up in the Los Angeles bloc and the Green Zone alike, as questions about Phyllis’s brutal murder cause Will to take a close look at his own wife, Katie. The episode felt strong for mid-season, with hints of great drama to come in clashes between principal characters.
Well this series is definitely blurring the lines of who to root for. Obviously the “Visitors” aka alien invaders are the big baddies, but they have yet to be revealed on the show. So we’re left watching our fellow humans running around, scrambling to get the upperhand.
When I first heard of FX’s latest, American Crime Story, and that it was to be focusing on the infamous O.J. Simpson trial, I was skeptical. I’m pretty excited to report that they pretty much nailed it.
This week’s episode of USA’s new series Colony was a step back in the right direction after a mostly “meh” second episode. Don’t mistake me, I wasn’t blown away, but they planted some interesting story seeds this episode that have me curious enough to keep following.
The second episode of a series can make or break a show. The pilot, a single dot on a chart, can stand or fall on its own. But once the second episode airs, lines must connect to plot a clear direction. Unfortunately I’m not sure that this episode sends us in the best direction.
Aliens. Okay, yeah we’ve seen it before, we’ve even seen it in Los Angeles before. Many times. But this is less a story of the invasion than it is about the occupation. What happens after the invasion, or as the characters in this story call it, The Arrival.
