Lets discuss The Colony sci-fi series on USA Network. Alien invasion apocalypse. Now partway into season 2.

One of my daughters and I absolutely love this show. What we like so far.
1) Premium production values with sharp cinematography
2) Multilayered plotlines with plenty of breadth and depth. Season 2 really notching up how a fractional part of humanity sells out the masses.
3) Interesting science tropes.
4) Talented cast

I haven't watched any of season 2 yet, I need to get caught up. But yeah, year 1 was pretty interesting.

It was kind of annoying how the aliens went back and forth between competent omnipotence (when they took down all the world's defenses in what, 45 minutes, I think they said?) but just one alien could be fairly easily captured by a small group of rebels.

Agreed, there are some discontinuities and plot holes...
Season 2 is a gem though and periodically flashes back to the start of the occupation and what enabled it..
