Product Description

Thirty-nine days, eighteen Survivors, three tribes, dozens of lies, a gender war and now, one Sole Survivor.

Amazon.com

Against a backdrop of volcanoes and earthquakes, the ninth season of Survivor, called Vanuatu: Islands of Fire, got off to a rousing start at a native ritual ceremony full of spears, nasty drinks, a fertility idol, and a lot of sexist attitudes. When the natives divided the 18 Americans into groups of men and women, it stuck, and another battle of the sexes was on. Among the Lopevi members: Lea, the "Sarge" barking out orders; Travis, a.k.a. "Bubba," wearing his Bob Barker T-shirt; Brady, the FBI agent; Chris, whose struggles on the balance beam made him an early target; and outspoken Rory. Among the Yasur members: power broker Ami; big-eyed Eliza, whose motor mouth overshadowed a surprising resilience; acid-tongued Twila; and sheep farmer Dolly. Also on the teams were two players with physical impediments: Chad, with a prosthetic leg, and the spiritual Scout, whose artificial knee made her the most immobile Survivor contestant ever. Age lines were drawn as well, with one group dubbed the "Fat Five." But just when the tide seemed certain, a number of reversals, one infamous broken promise, plenty of tears, and host Jeff Probst's corniest-ever final entrance kept things interesting. Trivia: one contestant with a penchant for nude sunbathing ended up dating Probst after the season ended. Probst, Chris, Twila, Eliza, Chad, Scout, Julie, and Ami return for commentary on five episodes and 35 minutes of featurettes on the DVDs. --David Horiuchi

Survivor Vanuatu: Islands of Fire, the ninth season of the series, is definitely among the best seasons of Survivor. This season featured many interesting and unpredictable plot twists: an earthquake; nude sunbathing; shocking tribal council outcomes; and, of course, the winner. The DVDs' features are great. The four featurettes, along with the audio commentaries, add much insight and intrigue into what happened behind the scenes. Overall this was an excellent season of Survivor, and this DVD set is a must-have for any true Survivor fan.

This season of "Survivor" I thought should be called "dumb and dumber!" I found it to be one of the funnest seasons to watch that is out on video. The thing that was great was it's girls vs guys. You get to watch how each tribe handles this. Watching this season with my girlfriend was fun, I found the guys to be irritatingly stupid, and she found the girls to be irritatingly catty and stupid. There are a few surprises and lots of irritation to the viewer as you watch these people create so much drama and problems for themselves. I liked the variety of women on the show and watching them interact. The guys were pretty boring and stupid I thought, but didn't detract from the show, only making it better because you couldn't believe how stupid they were playing! I found myself wanting them to keep playing so dumb so I could say "told ya so!" I was VERY surprised at the final two, and was compelled enough throughout the entire season. Not the best played "Survivor" per say, but fun on it's own merit of pretty much what NOT to do. Worth watching!

The characters in this season weren't as strong as they have been in past seasons. It was ok but a bit dull towards the end.

This is among the few shows our entire family watches together covering ages of 4 to 70! Great scenary, challenges and people interactions. Jeff Probst is a great host.

I didn't like this season that much when it first aired. Having viewed it again recently I enjoyed it way more. After the tribal switch (yeah a rare spoiler but keep reading) my reaction to the season greatly improved. Challenges become tougher and looked brutal. Tribal dynamics were much more interesting after the first few episodes. Friendships, alliances, rivalries and fights to stay, all kept me interested.

The cast was very interesting to view, everyone got roughly the same air time (minus about 3 of them) and all of it was deserved and showed their development. Also a few people I despised when I first viewed the season I grew to enjoy (Twila being the main example).

Even knowing the results, the fun didn't let up and the merge was very fun to watch with quite a few twists to the game appearing there. All in all I really enjoyed watching the season again and do plan to pick the dvd's up, not having had an interest in doing so before. A very good season that deserves its praise.

Thought we'd seen all of these, but nothing's been familiar so far. Perhaps as it goes along we'll remember why we didn't remember this one, but after a few episodes it's managing to hold interest. The place itself is fascinating. Live volcanoes, beautiful beaches, and th usual assortment of Survivor types (remember, this show is limited to people who can get off work for two months), the episodes are worth the hour's investment.

There isn't one season of Survivor that I don't like...Vanuatu is definitely a good season of watching "ordinary" people thrown together to scrap their way, whether physically or mentally, to the 1M prize. Even if you know who the winner was, watching the interaction of the survivors makes it worth while. I guess I'm a hooked Survivor fan!

No spoilers.

Survivor is one of the best reality shows ever made imo. I recall seeing the previews for the first season and was immediately intrigued. Although I have not seen every season since, I have seen almost all of them.

After the conclusion of the last season on tv. I decided I would buy a DVD set. I picked Vanuatu, which I watched the original airing of, but I did not recall who won. I did recall that one of the tribe received an extra clothing in an unusual way and thought that was pretty cool. Unfortunately, having read several reviews here on Amazon a few decided to give away the ending. THANKS ALOT!

I still like watching it quite a bit and usually sit down and watch two or three episodes back to back. It is fun to watch the challenges and personal hustling over votes the tribe members do with each other. I had hoped there would be some extra footage thrown in but this is just the original episode. Yes there are some extra features, but I would have preferred to see them integrated into a seamless episode.

Which brings up a interesting point. That is the editors who put the show together. They could just show all the scheming among members so that you would more or less know the outcome of the vote beforehand. But they choose the footage to show so that you get an idea of what is going on but are not always sure of the outcome. And that is one of the things that makes the series so great. Now how is it that the people who created the DVD set chose to put the Survivors on the DVD covers in the order they are voted out!? So when you get your set, close your eyes try to load the DVD's WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED! DUH!
