Over the spring of 2000, sixteen average Americans (divided into two tribes which eventually merge into one) were sequestered on the deserted island of Pulau Tiga for 39 days. For their stay, they must learn to live as a tribe, although eventually, it is everyone for themselves. They compete in challenges for "luxuries" (a barbecue, a phone call home, etc.) and immunity. Every three days, the losers of the latter challenges must face tribal council, where they will account for their actions by voting one person off of the island. At the end of day 39, there will be only one survivor left who will leave the island with one million dollars. Based on the Swedish game show, "Operation Robinson." Written by
I initially thought this show was pretty stupid, but when my cousin started watching it, I really started to get into it, and stayed with it until the final episode. While I don't think it's better than "...Millionaire", it's certainly more different than most of the stuff on TV these days, and has recently spawned many rip-offs. Still the saying rings true: there is only one original.
