A commercial aircraft crashes in the Amazon rain forest in Brazil, leaving only a handful of survivors. Their hopes of being rescued aren't very good, as the Amazon proves to be even more hostile than the terrifying plane crash which brought them there: they must cope with an extremely hostile environment: piranhas, deadly snakes, flesh-eating ants, poisonous plants, hostile tribes, and more.

A big "Thank You!" to Peter Benchley for giving us what I feel is the best new show of the year. It is refreshing to finally watch a T.V. series with a totally unique concept. The cast is made up of a wonderful array of actors including C. Thomas Howell, Carol Alt, Fabiano Udenio (Austin Powers, Part 1), Rob Stewart, Chris Martin, Tyler Hynes and Gabriel Hogan(Traders) just to name a few. The actors have done a superb job of making their characters grow on you with each passing episode. I find the show to be filled with drama, suspense yet it also has heartwarming compassion. It may take a couple of episodes to get to know the characters and the storyline, but I believe most will find it well worth their while to watch it. I find myself anxiously awaiting each new episode. Gilligan's Island this is NOT! Long live Amazon!
