Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Thailand marks the first time contestants get to choose their tribes. The eldest survivors; Jake Billingsley and Jan Gentry; are both allowed to pick alliances making for an outrageously unpredictable game. Tension builds as members of the Sook Jai refuse to contribute to the shelter; which culminates in a tribe member trying to align herself with the Chuay Gahn only to have her own tribe turn against her. Watch as a mutiny backfires; and a merger is not what it seems. Twists abound in the thrilling fifth season. Discover who will be the sole survivor in this special-edition DVD set with revealing special features.

I'm glad to have Palau and Vanuatu coming out later this year; I'll happily purchase any seasons they release no matter what the order. But while these seasons are good (Vanuatu is my least favorite season ever but it's still entertaining), they aren't Africa or Marquesas, two of the better seasons in my view.
I, like I'm sure most fans, feel that they should release the series in order, but if that can't happen, at least throw fans a bone here and give us the ones that we didn't just watch a year ago. Let us have the seasons we haven't seen in a long time. The sooner Africa, Marquesas, Thailand, and Amazon are released the better.
There are a couple of exceptions though. Basically I consider the release of Survivor: Vanuatu to be the end of the first era of Survivor DVD sets. Those DVDs were packaged in compact cases and even came with a nice cardboard sleeve to put them all in. This set comes in 3 regular-sized plastic cases (talk about wanting to be more environmentally friendly) marked Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, etc. and does not have the box/sleeve. Makes it kind of difficult to organize things.
But the main disappointment, more than anything else, is the lack of what I consider to be the quality bonus features that were included on the previous DVD sets, most notably the commentaries, which I enjoyed immensely. They provided so much insight to the things that we don't see on TV. On these DVD sets, all we have as far as bonus features go are the full versions of the Tribal Council confessionals of each contestant, as well as their subsequent appearances on The Early Show. There's also a little video clip that basically is of a shot of the Tribal Council area at daytime. And that's it. No commentaries, no DVD exclusive interviews with the contestants, or anything you came to expect from the previous Survivor DVD sets.
On the plus side though I am happy to say that the overall quality of the DVDs seems to be about what we'd expect, also I am happy to say that they do play on my computer's DVD player (something that it said that they wouldn't do in the description on the main Amazon page).
So, aside from the minor disappointments, I am satisfied, and this is a must-have for any diehard Survivor fan.

|When will cbs release the remaining seasons of Survivor on dvd?||
My guess is that they're going to stick to two a year, with the special exception for Heroes vs. Villains, which was released earlier this year to promote Rob and Russell being on season 22. So we can expect to get Guatemala and Exile Island in 2012, Cook Islands and Fiji in 2013, etc. But again,... Read More
