Product Description

Twenty Americans are stranded in Palau, the South Pacific paradise some call the 8th natural wonder of the world, where colorful wildlife, dense jungles and an underwater world beyond belief are haunted by the wreckage and remnants of World War II. From the beginning, the game will be changed in a dramatic way: everything the Survivors have come to expect will be wiped out in the first 10 minutes. Who will outwit, outplay, and outlast all others in Palau?

Broadcast in early 2005, Survivor Palau was the tenth season of the kingpin reality show, and one of the best. The challenges were often brutal, and the cast was diverse and interesting: Tom, the NYC firefighter, one of the most dominating competitors in the history of the show; gangly dolphin trainer Ian; commanding Jolanda; tattooed fireball Angie; Southern gentleman Bobby Jon; towering Coby; redneck James; Vegas showgirl Janu; schoolteacher Wanda, who wrote her own lyrics for, and didn't stop singing, Survivor-themed songs; and arch-eyebrowed Stephenie. Before the season was over, there would be a setting of teams using a "schoolyard pick" system that eliminated two of the 20 contestants right off the bat, some romance, a shark kill, the first appearance of Exile Island (which would be a bigger factor in later seasons), a marathon final-three challenge with a surprising ending, and a contestant who some fans considered the best female competitor ever and others considered the most overrated.

Each season of Survivor has its signature moments, and in Palau two challenges stood out. One was the two tribes marching in a circle in the surf, each carrying weights while trying to catch up to the other tribe. The other was a slugfest in which contestants from the two tribes stood on a small platform and tried to knock each other into the water. Two of the contestants turned out to be popular enough to make a return appearance in a later season. On the DVDs are 45 minutes of featurettes with new interviews of Tom, Ian, Stephenie, Bobby Jon, Katie, Jen, Gregg, and Caryn remembering highlights of the season. The eight then broke into two groups of four to record spirited and nostalgic commentary tracks on a total of five episodes. In a well-meaning statement of the obvious, the menu warns against listening to the commentaries if you don't already know who won. --David Horiuchi

If "Survivor" seasons were novels, "Survivor: Palau" would be considered one of the finest volumes in the series. Why? Amazing, bigger-than-life characters wrapped in a suspenseful storyline that has a satisfying ending!

The first half tells the tale of a tribe who, through no obvious fault of their own, are seemingly cursed. All these years later, I still remember Bobby Jon as a heartbreaking tragic character. In mid-story, the heroine slips through the jaws of doom... we cheer! But, will she survive? I think that Stephanie is still, to this day, the most popular woman ever on "Survivor".

The "matter of the heart" as we near the climax is an unexpected twist, but totally works in context. And then, finally, FINALLY... the player who dominates the story wins in the end. Having found myself feeling cheated many times before by juries that could not rise above their own hurts and acknowledge the obvious (Colby in "Outback" and Boston Rob in "AllStars" come to mind) here credit is given where credit is due. Three cheers!

The producers are doing those who haven't seen "Survivor" a favor by releasing them in the order that they have: they've skipped over a number of seasons because, quite truthfully, they just aren't very good seasons. "Survivor: Palau" totally justifies its release. 4 stars only cuz I haven't seen the DVD release yet. Let's hope the technicals are as good as the superior storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Palau is great. Get it. However..... August 26, 2006
By livvie
My Consecutive Survivor Streak was snapped during this season (I missed 3 survivors due to the CBS March Madness, and forget to set my vcr accordingly), so it would be nice to see the whole series in its entirety.

I liked this season. I loved Coby, Angie. Bobby Jon was someone to cheer for, and stephanie was an inspiration of never to give up. The winnner for the first time was someone who obviously dominated the game and deserved to be there (however; if the final three did not end the way it did; it would have been a much closer battle, with maybe a different winner. ahh, the shoulda coulda wouldas of Survivor).

This is the season where the first Ulonging took place. Ulonging is like Pagonging (affectionaly named after the first tribe in Survivor who got picked off one by one after the merge), but when an entire tribe gets eaten up BEFORE merging. Never before had this happened, and I doubt it will ever happen again. This is the season where for the first time there was no tribes at the beginning of the show.

It, like the 9 before it, and the 2 after is a classic season, and needs to be placed on the shelf next to Borneo, the Outback, Pearl Islands and Allstars. It will be enjoyed, and I can't wait for the commentaries and get the insider information.

What DOES irk me, is that Palau was only on t.v. 2 years ago. I can remember the drama very clearly, while Africa, Marqueases, Thailand & the Amazon are slowly fading away. At least do what was originally being done, Current-eqsue season (like Palau) with an older season. Rumours have it that Vanuatu is being released for Christmas, and with everyone in love with Cirie from Exile Island it wouldn't surprise me if they release that one next. Step away from the current; and bring on what started the road to excellence.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of all released seasons so far ! March 18, 2008
If your considering purchasing a box set, this followed by the original in Borneo & Pearl Islands would be my 2nd and 3rd recomendations.

The cast was so likable. Bobby John was my absolute favourite surivor of all time. He wasa never slacking off, he amde friendships, he trusted people, he ahad ethics, he was athletic - if only had had lit that fire and made it to the merge instead of Stephanie, and the final two would have been Ian and Tom --- well, let's jsut say it would have been an A+ al around !

Sorry Stephanie fans, but asides from her athletic ability her feeling of entitlemnet was to arrogant and annyoying to watch. I am glad the merged tribe did not fall for her sob story and voted her off fairly quickly. I can't decide if I dislike her for getting rid of JOLANDA and ruining the Tibe's chances of doing well at the very start or the mean spirited immature (and I will add almost 30 yr old) KATIE for making it to the final two !

This season has some of the toughest and most exciting challanges I have ever seen on survivor. Even the characters you didn't like much at least made you laugh (AKA James and Karen!)

Alot of fun moments, sad ones and twists. Also, guys the scenery is breathtaking. Anyone watching this season with an HDTV will agree :)

I was so glad Bobby Jon was brought back on the very next season (Guatemalla) because he really was deserving.

Hope this review helps !

4.0 out of 5 stars It's in the upper half. June 2, 2006
This is at the bottom of the "quality" seasons of Survivor. The reason why - sheer dominance. Koror beats Ulong in almost every challenge pre-merge; and every immunity challenge. After merge, Tom and Ian take every immunity challenge. Never was such a show of dominance seen in Survivor.

On top of that, the season had the most deserving winner of any season. I won't spoil who it is, but you can probably guess from the DVD cover.

Let's push to get all the Survivors out on DVD!!
I'm going to the site, but I want to go a step farther, I think they should relese them all as uncensored. I was disappointed to buy the first season only to find that it was censored.

Who did you want to win?
I wanted Ian to go all the way! In my eyes, Tom was smug and condescending, and Jenn's question at the final tribal council pointed this out. I was cheering Caryn on as well, I suppose.
