A Hurricane nearly sinks the "United World", a ship holding 40 teenagers from all around the world. 35 flee the ship on time - 5 are left behind, and end up on 2 islands unknown to the outside world, inhabited by people who got there under similar circumstances 200 years ago. The islands are ruled by a supposedly 200 year old immortal tyrant called "The Que", who would very much like to see them dead, so while running for their lives they make friends among the locals, even local very close to the Que.

Lost Islands
4 January 2005 | by (Toronto Canada) – See all my reviews

Loved every episode that played. It was the first show that continued in a series with a conclusion. Loved the open and closing tunes. Hope this will come to DVD. It was wonderful to see how 5 people could come together on a sailing ship from many countries and end up on an island inhabited by people from the15/16th century. As it goes. There once was a wealthy man who had a wonderful idea. To bring children from all places with all kinds of faces. Together into a sailing ship there were forty boys and girls. They would sail their ship around the world so they called it. The "United World". The ship was just three weeks from show when a hurricane bore down. The waves were big as mountains. They thought they would surely drown. They jumped into the lifeboats and rowed away from the wreck. They didn't count them they hadn't time 5 children where left behind. The children fought the storm all night then finally fell asleep. They didn't realize the ship had been blown across the reef into the Lost Islands. But hiding in the bushes was a watchful pair of eyes and living in the valley were people lost in time. Ruled over by a tyrant whose face was in a mask. The children must defeat them so They can escape at last from the Lost Islands. The Lost Islands.
