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 show!
17 September 2005 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I love this show. Amazon is one my my favorite TV shows.

I would like to see continuation. I know there was script of 2nd season but only few people saw it :(

My best character is Karen. I would like to know what happen with her after last episode... I hope she will survive.

I like idea of Chosen and Morag's cannibals :) Great idea :) My best episode is "Escape" , "Home" and "White Which". These episodes are very thrilling. Hmm.. I wish Mr. Peter Benchley wrote about ending of this show... I wish... Doeas somebody have e-mail to Mr. Benchley? :)

I like shows and movies about survivors and castaways. I also like LOST, Blue Lagoon, Castaway, Robinson Crusoe :) Amazon is the first show not about island.. but about Amazon rain forest :)
