so I was numbing the brain (aka watching TV) last night after wrestling with a particularly ugly assignment (really four attachments explaining the difference between an academic paper and a business memo...four?) when a commercial for Discovery Channel's newest show, "The Colony", popped up. Looks interesting, but....(you knew there was a but coming, didn't you?)
The premise is pretty simple...follow a group of ten survivors of a major global catastrophe and watch them rebuild. Sounds cool, huh? I was intrigued, really I still am. Even though I know deep down that there will be some MAJOR leaps made. Really, one of the first things you want to do is a solar panel? Okay. Yeah, I know...it's just on the commercial, they may actually make something good of this. I'm going to watch anyway, just to see what "they" think surviving and rebuilding should entail. (Quick, find the nearest Mickey D's and fire up the grills!! I need a Big Mac....sorry bub, hunt ya something, literally...hahaha)
It's interesting to see that the folks in charge of airing on the boob tube have taken a shine to the survivor thing at least (I'm not talking Survivorman or Man vs. Wild either...though I love both when I can catch them). Should be even more interesting to see where they take the whole thing, ya think?
