I haven’t had a chance to watch “The Colony”, but a new season of this TV series begins tonight on the Discovery Channel. From their press release:
What would you do in the wake of a global catastrophe? Even if you survived it, could you survive the aftermath? Discovery Channel puts these questions to the test in THE COLONY.
THE COLONY is not a competition, but a controlled experiment that places ordinary people from all walks of life in a simulated post-catastrophic environment and pushes them to their limits, in an ultimate test of personal will and survival skills.
The volunteers who will work together to survive are a model who grew up on a horse farm and a survivalist who keeps Bug Out Bags on hand and whose wife drops him out in the middle of the desert, alone, for days at a time. A woman auto mechanic is part of the group along with a former Marine/general contractor and a geology professor. A pretty darn cute construction worker and an “industrial artist” who fences and is SCUBA certified round out the group of three women and four men.
You can watch past seasons of “The Colony” on Netflix and online.
What I’m wondering is this. If you were in a desolate location following a devastating disaster, who would you want in your Colony?
