Storyline

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.

Each Ep Leaves Me Wanting More!
30 November 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm really enjoying this series. The writing is good, the sets are interesting, and the cast is not only pretty, but good at what they do. Amazon is the only new series this Fall that has kept my interest. Each episode leaves me wanting to know what will happen next, which is very rare for a tv series of late. I hope this show lasts awhile despite the Football season messing up my local station's programming and putting Amazon on at 2am on a Sunday night. The Networks never know a good thing when they have it anymore. Anyway, Long Live Amazon!
