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.

i want the song Lost Islands
27 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember as a young boy watching this show breathlessly, and in Turkey!. No wonder none of my friends in US have no idea about this show, I now realize that it is an Australian product: an excellent one. The song stayed with me, and I noticed that the lyrics are available on a web-site TV Nostalgia. I wonder if they are available online somewhere. As far as I recall the suspense was amazing, the Q character was invincibly evil. There were some innocent islanders suffering in the hands of the pirates who control the islands. IT created a sensation in Turkey. To find this one was easy, but I also remember an Italian show about some people stranded on an island. There were some evil people who created a sense of supernatural cause for several murders. A very beautiful blonde falls to the island and she tries to escape to no avail. IT was a pretty scary show. I hope I will find the track of that one too. I wish The Lost Islands will appear on DVD some time soon.
