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. Written by Sergio Ortega

Getting Better Every Episode
27 December 1999 | by VagarySee all my reviews

I didn't like this show at first, but I like C. Thomas Howell & Carol Alt so stuck with it. I didn't think this show could go anywhere stuck in the jungle with the same few people, but they've introduced some new exciting characters. And not just natives - but a real mystery of a people calling themselves the 'Chose Ones'. Peter Benchly and the writing staff are really starting to get things interesting. The Chosen Ones and Heathens upcoming war should be worth tuning in to.

If you're looking for an entertaining 'guilty pleasure' show, check out 'Amazon'. It's not going to win any Emmys, but it does what it sets out to do. It's my #1 'guily pleasure'!
