let's not forget that charlie's last act on earth was to use his kid sister as bait, so they could make their escape

he was a good kid.

Broussard shooting her in the face is a metaphor though, that time is a closed circle.

you can tell by the exit wound in the back of her head.

I always knew Wayne Brady would play a prominent role in the end times.

seattle is just a new take on how to internally govern a colony, more paris in '41 than dachau in '44. the original plan was to build death rays and death stars... and maybe that death blossom thing from the last starfighter... over a couple of decades, but now the raps need humans to go out there and whoop some rear end the old-fashioned way. red hats and grey hats are one thing, but there would never be enough of them.

they did say they were making a 'biological weapon' and no joke, we're probably earth's most perfect version of that.

pretty sure they're just be trucked off to work/concentration camps to build space lasers and poo poo.

also, the band is back together. nice to see Broussard back in the mix.

in all seriousness, wayne brady is some particularly inspired casting here. pretty sure we can all agree that if anyone is gonna pull a 180 and bring about the apocalypse, it's him right?

Which would mean man was the monster all along, which is what most fiction ends up being anyways?

man is being turned into the perfect biological weapon and from the way the drones react to the green-barfers, I think Will might have been one of their first attempts.

I was somewhat concerned with how they are going to keep dragging out the "Completely Invincible Alien Invaders In a Hopeless Situation" thing and manage to keep it fresh but if they give Broussard hundreds of other Bruce Lee/James Bond/Macguyver/Rambo/Master Chiefs with plot armor then the aliens don't stand a chance.

it's not plot armor though, it's gonna be real armor made from that bullet-proof membrane poo poo. just as contrived, but they did lay the groundwork for it.

might be more chemical based, like how trees 'talk' or whatever it's supposed to be called. the weapon seemed to induce some sort of reaction more than a tear out your soul psychic scouring and the giant, gently caress-off nostrils on the side of 'her' head made them out to be more primary sensory organs. thought maybe the alien produced the writing on kynes' arm, but I guess that was a silver sharpie in his epaulet.

sawyer was definitely off to make some hate, needed a reason to come home.

dude... there are africans who've been fighting since the age of eight that'd rip a loving ranger in two with their teeth.

pretty sure outlier is more 'seen combat, shot some dudes' than what sort of reputation you earned in the recon community.

it's cool man, my posts are hard to read.

more making the point that outliers are a global thing and the bowman's have only seen a list generated in america, which would really draw the bulk of their content from those fancy death squads. make that list up elsewhere and you'll get similar dudes but differing skill sets, which are just as useful. pretty sure there are some serious rules about morks never killing morks and stuff like nuking a city block is more of a calculated decision, they wanna use hate. hate that can be guided though, not the innate, reckless kind. it's a weapon they don't have.

besides, if you take away the fresh bullets and stale pop-tarts, you're left with 3600 fratboys that don't know the language. some gonna be more useful than others in that scenario but they still ain't gonna be no jihadi that can live off a diet of rocks and 'gently caress you'.

colony was a story about mr. and mrs. americana, plus their perfect nuclear family, doing jihad against a power structure that on it's face looks exactly like the one we have today. it got greenlit on a premise that was already subversive.

got cancelled cuz it took three years to find it's stride, which you really can't do when your hook is 'wacky times in the concentration camps'. poo poo is just bleak yo.
