The Colony - The first and probably only season!
« on: August 16, 2009, 04:33:00 pm »
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Colony_(TV_series)

It's this pretty cool series on the Discovery Channel about ten people who survived a global pandemic that killed most everybody. It was filmed like a social experiment/reality show, with all the "survivors" chosen for their real life abilities. You can tell it's faked, but the "survivors" in the experiment treat it like it's really happening, even though there's a camera crew following them around. Hell, they even build a dough-claymore mine and a flamethrower after actors posing as marauders raided their HQ.

I like it. It's good to see some reality TV that doesn't involve a camera crew following people around documenting everything they do!

Oh wait, that's Survivor Man.

Actually Survivor Man is just him... Perhaps you're thinking of Man vs Wild?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Well Man versus Wild is incredibly staged. Though, he shows what to do in certain situations. Survivor Man is filming him surviving in general which is why I liked it. How staged is that show though. I mean making weapons do they expect to kill them..... ???

Is there a hidden sexual tone to that comment Yannick?

There's one in each of his posts, my friend.

Aaaaanyway, last night's show saw the colonists beat the crap out of two actors that showed up basically to piss them off and steal stuff. I don't think they told the colonists themselves not to hurt people, just the actors portraying "threats".

I like the show. I think it would be fun as a Sims video game.

Interesting show. I'm really enjoying it so far. It's like Survivor but in a post-apocalyptic setting and without all the challenges and voting people off bull****.
