I am absolutely sure that at least 10% of the people on this site have heard of the new Discovery channel documentary entitled "The Colony". For those who haven't, I thought it'd be appropriate for this site.
The show is a 10-week human experiment about the apocalypse. 10 volunteers are put together and try to work to rebuild a colony, while they are studied psychologically and documented.
First, the 10 survivors were separated and put into rooms for 30 hours with no sleep, and almost no food or water. This is to simulate the psychological shock of the apocalypse. Then, they are given 15 minutes to scavenge food from an abandoned store, and walk 8 miles down the river to a designated "sanctuary", an abandoned warehouse with various materiel they could use for supplies. After that, they are on their own, with no interaction from the crew of the show other than the cameramen and the occasional interview.
It doesn't have to do with zombies, but for those of you who are interested in planning for the apocalypse, there are some really good tips and ideas that could save our lives when the time comes. When I watch the show, I come to think, "Other than the threat of the zombies, this is pretty accurate." They have to forage for food, design safe water filters, find a source of power, and deal with the constant threat of invaders and thieves.
If I could describe it simply... have you ever seen one of those really crappy MTV shows where they take a bunch of random, completely different people and put them together and watch them get into huge fights over absolutely nothing? It's kind of like that, but they have legit reasons to flip out and be pissed, while they deal with everything they need to survive.
If you are interested in watching the show, you are in luck. It's fairly new and only three episodes have been shot so far. Here is a link to a website that hosts the episodes. Watch them in order, and then prepare for the new episode, August 11th, 10pm on the discovery channel. G'day!
