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.

12 February 2000 | by quite_clumsySee all my reviews

Amazon is such a great show because of its vast diversity in characters, plot, and appeal for all ages and both sexes..The "survivors" each have their unique persona, and as a group they have such great chemistry on screen. I personally like the Native tribe the best, although I know so many Amazon fans prefer The Ghost Tribe because of certain "nice-looking" actors!! The natives have such great costumes, and they speak the language so convincingly..and they really do help add some spice to the diversity I mentioned. And of course, the set is beautiful. It's a change from the usual sit-com apartment or coffee shop. Congratulations Benchley! It's a wonderful show!!
