Netflix & Thrill(er) – Colonisation Comes Early

colony_banner_2880x1260Waaaaaay back in March (remember then? happy times) in amongst news of Colony season one coming to the UK via Sky there was mention of Netflix acquiring the global rights.

At the time the streaming network was said to be making the sci-fi-ish drama series available to all subscribers early in 2017.

Well, Xmas has come early to sci-fi fans paying [insert correct amount here in local currency] per month to watch Netflix’s bought-in and original shows.  Colony series one will be released on Tuesday (13th Dec 2016).

Kathryn guest stars in four episodes across the season, starting with number three.  She plays a wealthy art collector helping the invading aliens gather paintings from across Los Angeles.  As Charlotte she is also the wife of a political figure (Adrian Pasdar).

Season two of Colony is due to start in one month from tomorrow, with the first episode due to hit the USA Network on the 12th of January, as reported here last month.

Colony DVD In UK… When?!?

colony_season_1_dvd_artwork_003It’s been a bit of a Colony-fest here on KM UK the past few weeks.  Well, you know what us Brits are like with our colonies.  We can’t let them go.

After the US season one release of the sci-fi-ish drama series Colony on DVD last week, and the recent UK broadcast of the show on Sky, it was only a matter of time before we got the discs over here.

The Amazon UK website has now got the home release listed for 16 January 2017.

Saywhatnow?  THE 16th of January, 2017?  As in next year?  Around the time the second season starts in America?  That’s taking the mickey isn’t it?

Presumably it is part of the deal done for the broadcasting of season one and two and hopes to maximise revenue for both Sky and the production company.  It will allow the promotion of the boxset on the back that for the new run soon afterwards on TV.

Or, it is a six months hence guestimate by Amazon that will be corrected nearer the correct time when it is know.

Either way HERE is link to the online retailer’s webpage for the Colony season one DVD so you can pre-order it if you wish.  At the time of writing the price is £24.99 (~$33 at the current rate).  That’s possibly another place-holder which will be changed later.  Submit your purchase before release and if the price drops, as it likely will, you’ll pay the lower amount.

I’ll let you know if anything changes substantially.

Colony S01E09 – Zero Day Full HD Screencaps

Colony_S01E09_093Tomorrow is ‘zero day’ for Colony season 1 being released on DVD in America.  To celebrate this event KM UK has been running a short special Summer Of HD series of posts based around the show.  The first two parts are here and here.  This is the last of this set.

Episode nine of the ten was ‘zero day’ for Kathryn’s character Charlotte Burgess.  She’d enacted punishment on Maddie (Amanda Righetti, The Mentalist) for a perceived breaking of her rules regarding certain… things… involving Mr Burgess.  Maddie’s smart though and cleverly gets herself back on Charlotte’s good side, whilst simultaneously setting the scene for bringing her down a peg or twenty.

It did not end well for Charlotte, not that we know exactly what happened so the door is still open for her return come season 2 next year.  It was Kathryn’s last appearance in the season.

So, we need to make the most of the 129 new Full HD (1080p) screencaps now added to the Gallery.

Colony Out On US DVD On Tuesday

colony_season_1_dvd_artwork_003A quick reminder to close out the weekend.

On Tuesday (12th July 2016) the first season of the USA Network TV series Colony will be released on DVD in America.

It is available here on the Amazon US website.  When I first wrote about this the price was set (possibly as a place holder) at $24.  It has now dropped to below $20.

Also, on that page there has been additional information about the contents of the discs.  Obviously it has the all 10 episodes (Kathryn was in three: 4, 7 & 9) but now there is a description in the ‘Special Features’ section.  It says:

Disc 1 – Colony Season One:

Deleted Scenes

Disc 3 – Colony Season One:

Zero Day Deleted Scenes

Colony: Behind The Wall

Colony: Behind The Wall is likely to be one of the documentary pieces put out by the USA Network during the run-up to the broadcasting of the show.  I don’t believe Kathryn appeared in any of those.  The deleted scenes, especially from the ‘Zero Day’ episode, could be of interest though.  Released publicity shots did show Kathryn in a scene that did not feature in the show as we’ve seen it so far.

Tomorrow we’ll continue KM UK’s Summer Of HD 2016 with a set of new screencaps of Kathryn in the aforementioned ‘Zero Day’.  It looks like the end for Charlotte but with sci-fi you never know.

Colony S01E07 – Broussard Full HD Screencaps

Colony_S01E07_1080p_003The word ‘Independence’ has been a word much banded about in the last few weeks in the UK.  Whether it be related to our relationship with mainland Europe or the release of a much delayed sequel to a well known sci-fi action movie.  In both cases a person taking a lead role bowed out before the follow-up!

Today an ex-colony of the British Empire celebrates its independence from the mother country.  Happy 4th of July to all our friends on the other side of ‘the pond’.

Here on KM UK we are marking the forthcoming release of the appropriately named USA Network TV series Colony on DVD  later this month.  And we do that in the best we know with a Summer Of HD update bringing you a new set of full HD images of Kathryn in her role of Charlotte, an art curator and wife of a politician.

Talking of independence day:  if the show continues we may eventually get to see an ID4-style re-taking of the streets from their new alien overlords.

From the 7th episode, Broussard (named after a significant character in the show), we have 41 new Full HD (1080p) screencaps now in the Gallery.
