Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Billed as "the greatest Survivor ever" when it launched following the Super Bowl in January 2004, Survivor All-Stars broke new ground for the hit reality series by bringing back 18 of its most famous (and infamous) characters from the previous seven installments to battle it out in a quest for affirmation or redemption (and, of course, the million-dollar prize). Half the fun was seeing who was picked to return, and there were many tasty selections: original winner Richard (natch) from Borneo; Colby, Jerri, and Tina from the Australian Outback; Ethan, Lex, and Big Tom from Africa; and the newest alumnus, Rupert from the just-completed Pearl Islands. (There were, of course, many omissions, such as Mike Skupin, who deserved a second chance after falling into the fire in Australia.)

Right from the beginning, it was clear that this Survivor was going to be different. Because people now knew each other (from sharing a previous game, watching on TV, or mixing at Survivor-related functions), some of the schemers were quickly sniffed out and snuffed out, and players were more aggressive about creating alliances (which sometimes overlapped, but hey, it's only a problem if you get caught). In addition, because no one wanted to see someone win a second million dollars, previous champions found that they had targets on their backs. As a result, there was an entirely new wave of power players. Along the way there were some surprising and very emotional developments (which had the unfortunate side effect of killing some of the show's action) and the first on-screen Survivor romance. In the end, Survivor All-Stars didn't live up to its billing as the best ever (that title would remain with season 2 in the Australian Outback), but it did bring a new twist and some genuinely memorable moments to a long-running series.

The DVD set adds significant value to the season, including some welcome behind-the-scenes info on the series as a whole. The bonus footage consists of much longer versions of each member's "confessional" after being voted out, and 57 minutes of scenes that are edited and scored like the regular episodes. Among those scenes are a tribal council that was never seen on TV and Rob Cesternino's dead-on impression of host Jeff Probst at a mock tribal council, which was seen during the season as new footage in the midseason "recap" episode. That episode is the only one not included in the set, but with the above-mentioned moment preserved, only the most hardcore fan would object to the loss of this dead spot in every season. Three different quartets of cast members recorded commentary tracks on a total of 10 episodes, including the final four on the last episode and the first reunion (the second is also included). They provide a lot of insight and fun stories, though there's a bit too much yelling over each other. There are also featurettes that should appeal to all fans of the show: how the challenges are created and tested, the casting process, behind the scenes at the final show, and TV promos for the previous seven seasons. The individual profiles of all 16 All-Stars consist of footage of their original appearances, which may help remind you why they were picked to return, and interviews before the the season started. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

Although these all-stars may be familiar with the show’s premise, a few things have been changed for the show’s eighth season in order to offer some change into the mix. Players were divided into three tribes named Chapera, Saboga and Mogo Mogo, and marooned on separate beaches off the Panama coast where they cope with the most unpredictable weather yet. Promising to be the most manipulative season yet, SURVIVOR: ALL-STARS would not be complete without a little conflict between the players, and this time around, there is plenty of that to go around.. Commentaries on 10 episodes by (variously) Rob Cesternino, Jenna Morasca, Rudy Boesch, Tina Wesson, Lex Van Den Berghe, Alicia Calaway, Kathy Vavrick-O’Brien, Shii Ann Huang, Rupert Boneham, Jenna Lewis, Amber Brkich and Rob Mariano

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Season August 26, 2004
By Dusty
Format:DVD
When you get the best of the best together to play this game you are guarenteed a great season and it delievered with player Outwititng, Outplaying and Outlasting each other. I personally was disappointed that a bunch of All-stars didn't figure out how powerful Rob and Amber was and didn't get them out. Even though i dont really consider Amber an Allstar...did anybody really notice her in the Outback. Way more entertaining people should have filed her spot. I hope they release all the seasons. I am also surprised they jumped right into Allstars. Well buy this item if you can't get enough of survivor.

How I rank the seasons:

8. Thailand (Figures their was only one allstar from here)

7. Marquesas (Nothing special)

6. Amazon (Some bright moment, not the most exciting, most exciting Jenna and Heidi taking it off)

5. Africa (Location boring, great cast though)

4. Pearl Islands (3 amazing players : Sandra, Jon, and of course Rupert)

3. Allstars (Great season, dissappointed by the result)

2. Australian Outback (So close to #1, great location, amazing cast)

1. Borneo (The thing that started it all, the oringal alliance was born in this game..Rich, Kelly , Rudy, and Sue...hey why wasn't kelly on stars...Jenna ahead of her??)

Who ever is the genius idiot who decided to put the faces of the people eliminated on the disc they are eliminated? Did anyone ever think that some people may not have watched the show and did NOT want to know who was going to win, which was clear from the order of the faces on each disc? Once you know this the element of surprise is gone forever.. How sad...

Don't look at the pictures on front of every disk if you want surprises. If you don't care then you'll know who exactly get voted off with each disc and worse, you'll know who wins when you see them on the last sole disc.

Otherwise, this show was GREAT!! and therefore gets 4 stars, but really zero stars for ruining the surprises. Fire that putz that decided to blow it for people that have not watched it. Me, one of them.

The only other thing that was pathetic was the commentary by Lex, Kathy and Alicia who spend their valuable audio time on the bonus commentary bickering like teenagers over Boston Rob. Making ridiculous statements that Rob betrayed Lex etc. and that people were lying. Duh!!! The game is about outwitting, betraying, lying, and outsmarting everyone. Their bitterness of not winning makes me sick. What did anyone expect? That they were going to hold hands all the way to the finish line?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Season yet December 19, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was the best season. The only con is the fact that they ordered the pictures on the front in how they were voted out. Terrible idea. If you have forgotten the order then hide the cover for at least some surprise to remain. Whoever decided to do the cover like that needs to bring me their torch!! Having said that, it is risky to do an all stars. It's kind of like the risk Amazing Race took with the Family Edition. The AR special edition season did not pay off. Fortunately Survivor's risk did. It paid off big time. This is the only season I actually own on DVD and that is because it is good enough to watch it over and over again. The main reason for that is because of Rob Mariano. He is a hoot. I think he's the best player of the game yet. If you don't like Rob then don't buy this season. This DVD could be more aptly titled the Mariano edition. I would not have necessarily picked all of these individuals to be considered "all stars" but a lot of that has to do with who agreed to actually put themselves through this one more time. Rob was only slightly memorable from the first time he was on the show but this time he was ruthless. If you are the type that watches Survivor in hopes that no one will actually "play" then you'll hate this one!! People you loved last time may become villains. Those who were masterful before are easily voted out. This is truly full of surprises. No matter how many times these people play the game of Survivor the outcome is going to be different every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best purchase ever! June 26, 2005
Format:DVD
I still don't understand why so many people thought that Survivor All-Stars was a bad season. Anybody who is a true survior-fanatic thrives on watching the extreme politics, fierce mental and physical competition and the strategic moves of the players. This season has all of this, and then some.

What made it so great was that it invloved the most memorable chracters from previous seasons. Some of the most loved, most hated and most devious people were brought back (like Shii-Ann, Rob C, Rob M and of course the infamous Richard Hatch) and thrown together, resulting in a mosaic of so many different types of gameplay.

However, what made this box set truly incredible were the special features. There are so many aspects of the season that weren't aired (such as the inter-tribal letters), and every disc is jam packed with snippets of game-twists, various strategic moves and interesting events, which viewers otherwise would have been in the dark about. Other examples of special features are the complete "final words" for ALL the contestants and audio commentaries from contestants for most of the episodes.

I highly recommend this purchase, however if you are not acquainted with the characters, it is probably best to hold off until you have seen most of them in action in there previous seasons.
