Storyline

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 ZeroG1

Groundbreaking
26 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is simply one of the big landmarks of TV history for better of worst.

The first season was addictive and insanely entertaining. It took awhile to figure it out but as one of the contestant soon realized, this is a simple game show at its core. Everything else is a matter of set dressing. It is however one of the most original game show ever. The best thing about the first few shows is that the contestants were still figuring out how to play the game. As the years have gone by, the contestants have settled on strategies and the game has become repetitive. No matter how many changes to the game, the shock of originality has been lost. But this show will always have its place in TV history. It signaled the start of a whole new genre and that doesn't happen every day.
