Editorial Reviews

Survivor: Thailand; the fifth season of the celebrated series; finds the Sook Jai tribe battling the Chuay Gahn in the rugged beauty of the mountainous island of Koh Tarutao; Thailand. Home to everything from wild buffalo to king cobra; the only thing more treacherous than the island is the cast; itself; in a season rife with double crosses and false alliances.

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 normally don't care for reviews written before a product is actually released, since they generally aren't very helpful. But how this season has not yet been released is beyond me. It may not have been very popular at the time, but if you go to just about any Survivor message board, it's clear that the fans are dying to see Survivor: Africa released on DVD as soon as possible.

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.

I just completely don't understand why the people at CBS won't release seasons 3-6 of Survivor! I am a new fan of the show who just started watching during the All-Stars season. I've purchased Borneo, Austrailian Outback, and Pearl Islands and loved them all. I'm DYING to see seasons 3-6! PLEASE BRING THEM TO DVD BEFORE RELEASING THE NEWER SEASONS!!!

This was one of my most favorite seasons. I am really surprised that it has not been released. I just read that Big Brother 3 was released and Survivor has much better ratings. I thought the condiditons were very hard for Survivor Africa. I don't know that I could have done it. I also just loved the characters. It is too bad that Teresa and Frank did not end up on the other team to begin with. Loved this season. This is the season where the "Survivor Twists" really started to happen. I hope they release all seasons soon.

A Kid's Review on October 8, 2005
Format: DVD
Survivor Africa was one of the best seasons of all time. It was arguably one of the most toughest ones. The climate thier was really hot and they were all inland so there was no body of water anywhere near them execpt for drinking water that was given to them before the show. The show is brilliant!!!!! It keeps you in suspense the whole time. The whole thirty-nine days takes you on a roller-coaster ride. And in the end a true, deserving winner wins. I really hope this season comes out soon!!!!!!! I have been waiting for this season to come out on dvd some time now. You will really regret it if you don't buy it. The show is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CBS, please get your butts in gear on this one. Marquesas is one of the two best (and most important) Survivor seasons of all time, and it's ridiculous that you haven't released it yet. I would only rank Pearl Islands ahead of marquesas in terms of watchability, unpredictability, and beautiful locations, and I'll be the first one to buy it when you actually release it. So hop to it! A lot of people are dying to watch this one again!

Well, if you're a diehard fan of Survivor like I am then you have probably waited a long time to see Survivor: Africa be released on DVD. Now that it's out I can say that for the most part I am satisfied.

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.

Two players stand out in this season of Survivor - Boston Rob and Kathy. No wonder they both went on to play in the all stars season. Marquessas was a wild and turbulent ride - its the first season when we see a final three that are not from an original alliance or friendship. Its the season where the people playing survivor got smart... It is also the season when there is the first kiss! Yes Boston Rob kissed Sarah but the film crews missed it, it would be another 5 seasons before they could get a kiss scene on survivor - and it was again Boston Rob! This season is a must see, I can recommend it to all.

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
