The second season of Discovery's post-apocalyptic simulation 'The Colony' (Tue., 10PM ET on DSC) is set in Louisiana. Otherwise, the reality TV show mirrors the first go-round: The "colonists" must figure out ways to filter water, cook food, create an electric current, etc. -- all the while securing themselves against "marauders."
To that end, a mob appears, throws smoke grenades and demands the colonists' medical supplies. When they don't hand them over, fighting ensues. The invaders disorient their opponents with pepper spray; the colonists' wooden sticks and metal poles are less than effective. After a brief battle, the raiders leave with the group's water containers and medicine. D'oh!
