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.

Cold Case S01E09 – Sherry Darlin’ Promo Updates

promo_007 promo_008

By this stage in the history of the Cold Case squad, Lilly and co. have clearly gained a reputation for looking into old cases.  A man speaks to Lilly about a murder he claims he committed 14 years previously.

A lot of cop shows like their recurring characters.  Normally they are serial killers that keep cropping up through-out a season, giving the detectives involved another case to solve and a few more clues to their identity.  Personally I find these drawn out story lines rather tedious.  They are made even worse when, at the last moment, the killer gets away once again, free to return at some random time in future.

In the case of Sherry Darlin’, the killer didn’t get away, and the man that held himself responsible (and partly was) was jailed.  Case closed?  Yes, but that man actually came back to Lilly, whilst still in jail, having learned to trust her, to help solve another case in a future episode.  It is nice when shows bring back characters like that.

This photo update, the latest in our series going back through the series, is just two new promo images (see above) from this episode. Be a darlin’ and check them out in the KM UK Gallery.

Cold Case S01E06 – Love Conquers Al Promo Updates

s01e06_promo_003

See that guy in the middle in the photo below?  That’s Danny Pino.  I think you already knew that though.  It is not much of a stretch to assume you did.

It was this episode, number six in the first season of Cold Case, that we were introduced to Detective Scotty Valens.  He replaced the Chris Lassing character, as played by Justin Chambers (Grey’s Anatomy), who was Lilly’s cop partner in three of the first four episodes.

Speaking of partners we also got an initial brief glimpse into Lilly’s life outside work, though this peach doesn’t stray far from the tree, as we meet her beau Assistant District Attorney Kite (Josh Hopkins, Quantico).

Anyway, ‘Love Conquers Al’ involves the case of a high school athlete killed twenty two years earlier in 1981.   Summer Glau (a regular in Joss Whedon’s work such as Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse) was that runner in the flashbacks.  Her then boyfriend, the titular Al, was jailed for the crime. The previous week’s episode was called ‘The Runner’, someone on the production must have on a get fit kick.

The other man in these new photos is the actor Vincent Ventresca (Fun Bobby in two episodes of Friends, and lots of other things, including Dollhouse).  His Bennett Cahill wasn’t so fun in this.  Now a successful doctor, Bennett’s past catches up with him.

For this latest update in our series we have 3 new promo images from this episode. Run them down (see what I did there?) in the KM UK Gallery.

Reverie Comes To An End

artwork_002
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.

Cold Case S01E05 – The Runner Promo Updates

promo_011

There’s a phrase/idiom in English: “having your collar felt”.  It means to be arrested and probably relates to the idea of a police officer grabbing a ne’er-do-well by the collar to hold them still whilst questioning them.

Although not strict ‘by the collar’ Lilly is very much acting out the phrase in the photo above.  She’s got her man.

Sorry for the spoilers but it has been 15 years since ‘The Runner’, episode 5 of Cold Case‘s first season, so you’ve had more than enough time to find out who did it.  It’s that guy!

Continuing our CC photo updates on the same date as the original airing plus 15 years, we have 3 new large promo images from ‘The Runner’.  They are now in the KM UK Gallery.
