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

There aren't many modern American TV shows that I admire more than Survivor...
22 November 2006 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm extremely critical when it comes to television and there aren't many shows around that I DON'T pan. Survivor happens to be one of them. I can't get enough of this show! For me, it's really more of a game show with a mix of reality, drama and characterisation thrown in. The best part is that fact that these are real everyday people and not actors, who are thrown into a fantasy situation and left to their own devices (most of the time). I also enjoy the way certain characters grow on you and others are repulsed as each season draws closer and closer to the end. For some strange reason I particularly find the contestants more attractive when they're in their natural state and in their element than when they're back in the studio, all "glammed up" and civilised. I wonder if I'm alone in this...

Survivor Cook Islands happens to be my all time favourite at the moment. I don't understand the controversy surrounding the division of teams by racial background. I'm of Asian decent and I loved it! People will always judge and stereotype others by the way they look and this was a perfect means of showing the world how race alone is an unreliable measure of an individual's character. Americans seem to be so sensitive about these issues sometimes. Political-correctness is so ho-hum in this day and age.
