    Re: The colony

    i think they're in an abandoned part of New Orleans. the point is to see how people will survive and to what lengths they'll go to

    Re: The colony

    Its supposedly to simulate what it would be like if the people had survived some sort of widespread disaster (biological maybe?) I have watched it on and off a couple times just because some of the ingenuity shown by the people on there is pretty cool. Not much of a fan though, seems like a lot of bickering and whining back and forth among the participants

    Basically it's a survival simulation for the apocalypse. I haven't watched last nights episode yet but I enjoy the show. The fake fighting is painful to watch though.

    Re: The colony

    yeah the fighting i think ruins a big portion of the show but i do like to see what they can come up with. Its a cool group of people they have mixed together with a good mix of talents

    Only if his producer has them killed first, and then delivered to him in his hotel.
