Special Features


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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most underrated season June 15, 2006
By BigAnt
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Survivor Africa September 22, 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLEASE OH PLEASE!!! December 29, 2006
By J. Getz
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Where is Africa? Bring Us Africa! January 26, 2006
By livvie
The place of civilization, a culture very unique of our own...Survivor Africa, taken place in Kenya. This was the Season where I learned to love Survivor and became addicted.

This was one of the HARDEST Survivors ever. Why? Yes, they had food, rations, (that stopped Survivor four), but they had no Water. Both Samburu and Boran had muddy watering holes where Elephants frequented frequently (lol). It had (to date) harder challenges, lions and other animals came dangerously close... It was real and exciting.

The first "twist" came here (the switching of the tribes). The Survivor that we all know and love, betray your teammates so you can get further, but basic morals still shine through. We still had the loyal inner sanctum (The Boran Boys of Ethan Lex and Tom). We had the first major boo-boo mistake by Jeff Probst, later rectifed.

So with the amazingness of this season, WHY on earth are we still waiting for? I am tired of Paramout releasing the later seasons of Survivor, ones that is still fresh in our minds. Survivor is more something that Survivor fans purchase than other people, so I speak for a lot of fans when I wish they would now go in order. Several shows have a season come out every 4 months. I wish Africa and Marqueases (not so eager for Thialand) would be realeased, rather than Palu (which is rumoured), and probably Guatemala after.

5.0 out of 5 stars Please come out soon!!!!!!!!!! October 8, 2005
A Kid's Review
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still Waiting... February 3, 2007
We have all the "Survivor" DVD sets and have enjoyed rewatching the heroes and villains but when is "Africa" -- one of the best seasons -- going to be realeased on DVD? Come on Burnett, work it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great season of survivor viewing May 16, 2006
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Underrated Season Finally Available! October 27, 2011
By Sam H
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I know Survivor: Thailand has this stigma attached to it amongst Survivor fans as a poor season and ask me a few years ago and I'd have to agree. However, years on I have come to appreciate it a lot more and would definetely count it amongst the underrated seasons now. I am very pleased to finally see it released on DVD.

In a world where Survivor is now so gameplay orientated and editing has degenerated into showing only a handful of people each season, rewatching Thailand is a breath of fresh air. It may have quite a few unlikeable players and a predictable endgame, but the episodes hold up remarkably well because it's packed full of those amazing character moments and camp life moments that go largely ignored nowadays. Jan's pet cemetary, Helen's birthday celebrations, the Chuay Gahn guys playing golf on the beach, Sook Jai bonding after so much fueding etc. etc. etc. Thailand is a testament to how well Survivor used to be produced compared to today. You only have to compare it to Redemption Island to see that even the bad seasons back then are still worth watching.

Now when it comes to the DVD's, I am pleased to see the number of disks has been downsized (Thailand is 5 discs all in one case) without any real noticeable dip in quality. Plus the bonus features aren't bad for a season that's about 9 years old now. Overall, I'm very happy with my Survivor DVD's as usual and really hope there are more to come in the future after Amazon finally gets its much anticipated release.

Boston Rob, Sean, and Cathy highlight this memorable installment of Survivor. Rosie O'Donnell host the reunion show and kills it. Worth the purchase just to watch O'Donnell.

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
