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. Written by Sergio Ortega

DVD's Peter Benchley's Amazon
10 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just bought the DVD's for Peter Benchley's Amazon because I wanted to watch the show again.

I especially liked the part Rob Stewart played and was disappointed when the canceled the show after one season. I wanted to see if he would be cured of his illness by Prudence so he would be able to try to get home.

He was told he would become ill again if he left the Amazon because she had not found the cure yet.

The other actors were also great in the parts they played, but Rob is a actor who can play different roles.

It's too bad they can't bring the actors back to give us a final of what happens to them especially Jimmy and Karen.
