You like me! Of course, you probably don't know me very well.

I’m really excited for The Colony (even though in writing this I realized that I missed the premier last night).

What would you do in the wake of a global catastrophe? Even if you survived it, could you survive the aftermath?

Season Two of THE COLONY introduces viewers to a new group of volunteers with differing backgrounds, skills and personalities, to bear witness to how these colonists will survive and rebuild in a world without electricity, running water, government or outside communication.

Empty buildings, weedy streets and the backwoods are all the colonists have to work with as they scavenge essentials for survival from their surroundings while fending off threats such as wild animals and malicious outsiders.

I don’t know what it is about post-apocalyptic story lines that appeals to me so much. I, like everyone else, am pretty sure I’d survive… but not sure enough to sign up for this show.

These people are fucking insane.

I’d be selling my body for water by the second episode.

  1. I think they did a casting call for this show about six months back in Denver. I, too, have an unhealthy love of post-apocalyptic anything and honestly thought about sending my husband to that open casting call. He grows his own food, makes his own soap and can start a fire from scratch.

    Don’t tell him…but that’s why I married him. I’m totally surviving the apocalypse. With his help, of course.

    (Checking out that show as soon as humanly possible…)

    I remember “ALAS, BABYLON” and “ON THE BEACH” from when I was a kid and nuclear war didn’t seem like such a far fetched idea….. so I googled ARMAGEDDON literature and came up with this..

    Could keep one busy for a while, ehh?

    Everything I know about making soap I learned from Fight Club.

    I’m guessing that won’t be all that useful. I should probably find a husband like yours.
