Colony is a new sci-fi action series set in the near future - the planet is apparently invaded by aliens, the people of Los Angeles are walled in and the city is held under strict military control. It is starring the guy from Lost, the chick from Walking Dead, the guy from House MD and Apollo Creed. Drama, action, mistery, patrolling killer drones, cool stuff.
And don't tell me you didn't see it, because I know you did: there's a damn Baofeng UV-5R on the table, right in the middle of their family drama scene. All the forces in Colony's occupied LA - military, detectives, the resistance move - use it for communications. These are all images from one episode !
So, you'd better learn to field-program Baofengs to prepare for the alien invasion, this is no joking matter.
