The Colony: reality TV apocalypse

Posted by: Dave In: TV

I’m not sure which is worse: post-apocalyptic cannibal zombies or the TV executives who dream up this stuff.

I wonder which one of them is “the cannibal” in this gritty post-apocalyptic scenario? I would immediately attempt to eat the weakest cast member on the show.

I wonder if that would get me “kicked off the island?”

Ya know, a few years ago, when Bill and I were watching Survivor, the first season, which is the best one really, he not surprisingly commented on how quickly he’d take to cannibalism.
I was joking that before the boat even hit the island, someone would be mysteriously missing.
That’s Bill.
I wonder if he watches the Office, ‘cuz he is so Dwight Schrute.

Watched most all the shows. And found it interesting and somewhat informative. But the reality of a bunch of highly educated “survivors” banding together in an end of world situation…not going to happen. Most likely, people will be like the ‘marauders’…preying upon each other. People will be killed on the spot for something as simple as a glass of water, or for the shoes on their feet! Mostly I think the show was an eye-opener for what is about to come in the not too distant future….So get ready folks….For it will be ….’Day of the Dog’!

I liked Angry Republican Man, Black Liberal Martial Arts Woman, Crazy Mad Scientist, Foreign Guy, X-Con Handyman and Whiny Nurse.
If only you’re next disaster could be so well cast.

What, you don’t think everyone can make a Telsa coil?
Screw stealing their food and water, that Mad Scientist Guy was a goldmine!
I would put him in a cage and force him to do his crazy science-magic.

Oh, and I would feed him other members of his “tribe”.
I thought that that last bit mighta been understood.

“Do your science-magic for me, or no Foreign Guy for you!”

“He’s de-liiiiiiiii-cious.”

Oh and, instead of calling him Crazy Mad Scientist Guy, I would call him Lucky.
As in lucky I’m not eating you.

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
