    July 27th @ 10PM on Discovery season 2 of "The Colony" starts.

    7 Strangers live together after a simulated biological disaster.

    50 days with no power, no running water and no communication from the outside world.

    I really enjoyed the first season and am looking forward to the start of the second.

    I enjoyed the first season as well except for the way it ended .. but wow! gotta say that I'm surprised that they are running a second round.

    Yeah I agree on the end not being the greatest, but what I enjoyed the most was the "projects" they came up with for electricity, water, comfort and other things. I thought it was a little wierd with the gangs trying to get in too, but I guess it shows that no matter what you need some security.

    Loved the first season so I'll be tuning in to Season 2. Also looks like it may have been filmed down here in South Florida based on what I see in the previews.

    Side note... Has anyone else seen the new IBM commercial with "The Professor" from Season 1?

    I will try it out, thanks for the heads up.

    I found the first 3 episodes of Season 1 on VOD. I would hope they will put the rest up before season 2 premier for those like me who missed it.

    The complete season 1 is on VOD for those interested. It is all in SD :(. But it will help me to keep up for season2.

    Nah, Season 2 starts all over. It's not a continuation from Season 1 by any means. You don't even have to watch Season 1 if you don't want to.

    While I think it's worth watching the first seaon, you're right this season will start fresh. If you start with the first episode of season 2 you will be as caught up as anyone.

    Ok, The Colony was on last night and I am curious if I was the only one who was a little disappointed in this episode?

    Seemed to me that they spent a little too much time on the security aspect of the show. The "fighting" part of last season took a bit away from the show, but the "fighting" in episode one almost was the show. Our only hope is they are going to get the folks involved to set up their security and show how they will defend themselves and then move on.

    Pretty amazing that they can get people to give up 50 days in a row to be on tv.

    I wasn't disappointed but I definitely see this season having a different outcome than last. I don't think this group is, or will be, as organized as last year. I also don't think you have enough of a wide range of skill sets. I think all 4 men are construction types, with one saying he's also an inventor. The woman who is the mechanic seems to be the smartest one of this group.

    I also predict this season will be more violent than last and someone will get hurt.

    I thought that I red some where that it is going to more about security.

    This season is definitely different than last year.

    From the looks of the previews, it is all about security and fighting.

    I believe there was more fighting on this first episode than all of last year.

    I sadly agree, the outcome will be different. One of the most interesting parts of the show for me was the problem solving, yes the new group got the water filter made (I probably would have made it larger), but they don't seem to put in a lot of effort.

    Maybe I just need to give it more time but if it turns into the fake fight night each week I won't make it very far.
