Ok, I generally like to wait a season before I commit to recapping a show. I binge watched Colony over the holidays, so now I’m into it. In case you didn’t know Colony is basically V-The Miniseries without the aliens being at the forefront. It’s an alien invasion story without the aliens. It asks the question what would people do under these circumstances. Do you become a collaborator or try and resist? If you resist how do you do it? Season 2 returned to USA Network this week. At the end of the season everyone was left in a precarious place at the end of last season I’m pretty curious to see where season 2 is going. Colony airs on USA Network Thursday nights at 10pm.
USA Network will kick off the holidays beginning Monday, December 12, with WWE HOLIDAY WEEK. In addition to regularly scheduled live WWE events, USA will feature movies starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and the 14th annual WWE’S TRIBUTE TO THE TROOPS – a special that honors our servicemen and women and celebrates their dedication and commitment to our country.
USA Network’s recently debuted series Eyewitness, based on an original Norwegian project called Øyevitne, is a nice departure from the supernatural/sci-fi/superhero fare that I normally wallow in. The 10-episode anthology series at times is tight procedural that threatens to spiral out of control with it’s multi-level conspiracies and double crosses but somehow maintains equilibrium throughout the 10 episodes.
Season 6.2 of Suits is set to rerun in late January, picking things up immediately following events of the fall finale – which is to say, in the midst of chaos, with Pearson Specter Litt in the hands of managing partners Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) following Jessica Pearson’s departure.
Earlier this week I had a chance to participate in an intimate conference call (only 4 others) with Veronica Falcon of USA Network’s latest series Queen of the South. In the series Veronica plays Camila Vargas, a ruthless Mexican cartel lord. Veronica is a well known Mexican actress, but this is her first big American role. QOS debuted on USA Network last week and airs Thursday nights. Check your local time.
One of USA Network’s big gets for the 2016-17 season was Shooter – an excellent thriller of a novel by Stephen Hunter – the story of a top-flight sniper who went off the grid when he returned home from the war and is sought for a dangerous mission that turns out far differently than he could ever have imagined.
Falling Water (pictured above), on the other hand, is a series that is built on the premise that our dreams are not unique to us but, rather, a kind of open world in which we can move from our dreams into someone else’s – kind of Inception cubed.
Check out the first teasers for both shows following the jump.
