Just 10 episodes last year was all it took. We bought in. We invested. We engaged with the Colony community. We even met Ryan Condal.
When you go out in a public forum, like a blog, Facebook, what have you, and say you like something, you are also saying some other stuff. What we let into our minds and souls as entertainment is one thing, but what we tell others we like is another. Coming out all public-like in support of a show in its freshman season can be fun… until its time for the Season 2 premiere. Then we’re all like, “please don’t suck. please don’t suck.”
We have good news for you. Colony Season 2 looks like it is off to a STRONG start. Where last season, we were left wondering about our characters’ backstories, this episode we got mostly backstory. BUT. Some of the details we learn only lead to more questions (funny how good writers can do that, huh?).
All the previous stuff I wrote I used a collective “we” to denote how Caroline and I feel about the show. This next bit is all Paul.
Alan Snyder, the once and future Proxy, is beginning to steal the show for me. Will Bowman has the action hero stuff and that’s cool, but Snyder is cunning and highly adaptable. He had me at, “She stays.”
