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.

Great & Original Series That Inspired 'Lost'
26 May 2012 | by (Ukraine) – See all my reviews

"Amazon" is one of my favorite series. I was shocked when they canceled this awesome TV show. It had a great story line and the acting was wonderful. Not to mention the fact that jungle atmosphere looked so realistic. I'm sure, this series inspired Lost in many aspects but I still prefer 'Amazon'.

The final episode was kind of weird but I guess, they just planned to make season 2.

C.Thomas Howell, Fabiana Udenio, Carol Alt, Chris Martin and other actors did a great job here.

"Amazon" should have been a big HIT!!!
