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.

Jungle Love
3 February 2000 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

This an amazing show! Rarely do I even bother getting involved in TV show fandom, but I will for "Amazon". OK, so it started out a little schlocky, with the fake blood and rubber snakes and all. But frankly, I found the concept of the "Ghost Tribe" fantastic! Stranger things have happened in the real world. The show's characters, show more depth and development as the show progresses. From the survivors like the spoilt but tender Pia, the angst adolescent Will, or aggressive but learning Dr Kennedy to the tribes people like the ever popular Falconer John, the feisty witch Prudence or the passionate widow Hekka. It taps into my lost in a jungle meet a renaissance village fantasy! And speaking as a Generation-X Asian-American, I choose to support the multicultural cast native "Spider-tribe" also, and the show's attempt to present both their hostile and compassionate sides. With the storyline linear, presenting increasingly complex interactions between all of the above groups and cultures, I think the show displays far more creativity and thoughtfulness than quite a few of the top network shows. But I'm not looking for "Star Trek" special effects or PC attitude, j ust good entertainment. And despite any of the aformentioned criticism, for me, "Amazon" just keeps going and going.
