    The Colony

    What would you do in the wake of a global catastrophe? How would you find food? Water? Shelter?

    The Colony is a controlled experiment to see exactly what it would take to survive and rebuild under these circumstances. For 10 weeks, a group of 10 volunteers, whose backgrounds and expertise represent a cross-section of modern society, are isolated in an urban environment outside Los Angeles and tasked with creating a livable society.

    With no electricity from the grid, no running water and no communication with the outside world, all the volunteers have to work with are their skills and whatever tools and supplies they can scavenge from their surroundings.

    Experts from the fields of homeland security, engineering and psychology have helped design the world of The Colony to reflect elements from both real-life disasters and models of what the future could look like after a global viral outbreak.

    Over the course of the 10-week experiment, the Colonists must work together to build the necessities of survival, such as a water-filtration system, a battery bank that powered their electricity, a solar cooker, a shower system and a greenhouse – and even some niceties (a coffee maker!).

    I've watched the first 2 episodes of this show and it's got my attention, they do some pretty neat things, and the concept is very interesting, i will continue to watch it, and i figured i would get the word around in case some others are interested in this sort of TV show.

    Somehow I don't think a global catatrohpe would end up like that... but that's just me. I'll take a look at the show.

    roflmao. of all people it would be some teenagers, a few adults, and an old dude. I can see it in my head.

    The teenagers all get mad at eachother. The adults try to keep control and the teenagers revolt agaisnt the adults. And the old dude is like the mentor.

    But, it is made by discovery channel. I respect their opninions/views/experiments with people.

    Knowing that it is a controlled environment. makes it unrealistic to me
