Colony S1 Gets ‘Pick’ed Up

colony_banner_2880x1260
I’m going to state up front that I am not sure if this is a new thing or not.  I may have not noticed this before because I haven’t been keeping a close eye on such things.

Tomorrow (15th Jan) Pick TV in the UK is showing the USA Network sci-fi-ish drama series Colony from episode one.  It starts at 10pm.  This could very well be a première for the channel.

Pick is one of Sky Televisions many channels, it used to be called Sky 3, and is available on the British free-to-air Freeview system as channel 11.  The schedules are largely made up of slightly older show repeats.

For those that haven’t been paying attention, Colony involves a near future Earth that has been invaded by an alien force.  They have contained what is left of the human population inside massive walled city ‘colonies’.  People are largely free to go about their lives but are under constant surveillance and will be banished to ‘The Factory’ for disobedience.  The show focuses on one particular family headed up by Josh Holloway (Lost) and Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break).  She runs a bar in Los Angeles and he is an ex-FBI agent recruited by the ‘powers that be’ as part of a human law enforcement team working on behalf of the aliens to root out rebellious elements.  Only, he’s not entirely loyal to his employers.

We only really covered season 1 here on KM UK because that is the one Kathryn starred in.  Her character of Charlotte Burgess, the wife of a Adrian Pasdar’s (Heroes) ambitious (and keen to stay alive) politician, was in just 3 episodes (plus a few ‘previously on’ flashbacks).  We have lots of Gallery content to enjoy.

Colony first aired in America in very early 2016 and came to the UK on Sky 1 in April of that year.  A DVD release came not too long afterwards.  Since then the show has had two more seasons, with a major shift in setting for the 3rd, but it was cancelled last summer.

Reverie Comes To An End

The silence made this virtually (a small joke there to lighten the mood!) inevitable news.

Reverie has been cancelled after just the one season, as reported by the Deadline site HERE.

Sadly the numbers didn’t stack up for the little sci-fi-ish drama series that could.  Host network, NBC has decided not to renew for a second run.

Here on KM UK we’d like to thank all those involved in the show for trying something a bit different and bringing Kathryn back to our small screens.

KM UK, however, is not yet done with the show.  We’ll be returning to it with new and improved images.

Japanese Cold Case Season 2 Due Soon

Cold_Case_Japan_Promo_photo_1600x1190It has been two years but the Kanagawa Prefectural Police’s First Investigative Division squad are returning to Japanese television screens in the autumn.

The WOWOW TV network is airing 10 new episodes of their version of Cold Case starting on the 13th of October.  WOWOW is the Japanese home of the original American version too.

Yo Yoshida returns as the Japanese Lilly Rush.  Her character is called Yuri Ishikawa and, as I noted previously, in a nice touch Yuri is Japanese for Lily.  The rest of the core cast looks to be the same as in season 1 too.

Read all the details on the WOWOW website HERE.

If you know of a localised version of Cold Case in your part of the world then please do let me know.

Reverie S01E10 – Preview Video + Promo Photos

artwork_002Looks like we’re only going to be seeing Kathryn in six of the 10 episodes in Reverie‘s first season.  No news yet on whether there will be a second.

Reverie_s01e10_previewKathryn did not feature in this week’s episode, number 9 called ‘The Key’.  However, the post-show preview for the season finale gave us a glimmer of hope for the next.  And I do mean a glimmer.  It is a blink and you’ll miss it moment about 10 seconds into the half-minute long clip.  The video is now in the Gallery.  Any promotional photos will be added if/when they are released.

The press release for the upcoming episode mentions one of the team being kidnapped.  You can work out which person it is from the clip without too much difficulty.  Looks like Kathryn’s Monica Shaw is roped in to help out.

See the last episode next week.

Update:  Five, yes 5!, promo photos from Point Of Origin that include Kathryn have been released.  That does suggest she will be in the episode a reasonable amount. See all five, count ’em, in the Gallery now. Expect bigger and better versions soon.

Update (3 August):  As promised the promo photos have all been upgraded to versions that are significantly bigger.  Enjoy.

Reverie S01E09 – Preview Video + Clip

artwork_002Unfortunately my prediction about the lack of Kathryn in episode 8 of Reverie, ‘Despedida’, came to pass.  Sorry about that, I’ll try and do better for you this time.

Reverie_s01e09_previewKathryn will definitely, almost certainly, possibly, maybe be in the next episode.  It is called ‘The Key’ and will be on US televisions next week.  It is also the penultimate episode.  Kathryn is not in the preview video though.  See it in the Gallery now.

Without spoiling it for anyone that hasn’t seen it, ‘Despedida’, made references to the military’s use of the Onira-Tech’s VR technology.  It was a good reference.  It was very much an angry one too.

Reverie_s01e09_clip_001That and the press release for ‘The Key’ stating the team has to work together gives me a bit of hope we’ll be getting some Monica Shaw of the DoD before the season ends.

Update (1st August):  A 3 minute-long clip from this episode has now been added to the Gallery.  It shows Sarah Shahi’s Mara explaining to the team what happened to her at the end of the previous episode.  Kathryn does not feature.
