Sounds like it will be interesting.

So is the warehouse their limit or can they venture outside into the lot?

It appears they can venture out, but that there are as yet unspecified risks associated with leaving the compound.

Looking forward to all the rat-pigeon recipes. What kind of wild edibles grow in a warehouse?

---"unspecified risks"---

It's Los Angeles in a warehouse district. What more could you ask for in the risk department. crazy

From watching a clip on YouTube, it looks like it's going to be Lord of the Flies meets Junkyard Wars. Might be interesting.

Perhaps if they are supposed to be Bugging In, this will work. I will have faith it will be compelling. I will keep an open mind. I wouldn't have minded them using say a gated community instead, with lots of houses, some destroyed, some livable and finding things to help them along as they progress through the community and connect with people.

Do you think there will be Zombies outside trying to get in. haha.



I saw a show with a title something like "There goes the neighborhood". They actually put up a huge 12 - 20 foot wall around something like 8 hours. No TV. No internet. No contact with the outside. They're supposed to "survive". Of course, the show had some "challenge" the families could do. I do not remember the name.

Did anyone watch this program? I got sucked into Hells Kitchen and totally missed it.

Watched Hells Kitchen, recorded The Colony on DVR & watched it last night...first take on this show was that at least it may make some people think, the premise is interesting...
