Editorial Reviews

After a mysterious virus wipes out the world’s entire adult population, the surviving kids must learn to take care of not only themselves, but also of one another. With limited technology and life experience, can the children create a new functioning society even stronger than the one before?

Perfectly blending the stylized postapocalyptic look and feel of Mad Max with the teen angst of Degrassi, New Zealand’s The Tribe is one of the most remarkable series to ever hit the airwaves. No matter what your age, the first 26 episodes of this imaginative program are sure to keep you glued to your television, eager for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Great show December 20, 2011
Think of Mad Max meets Lord Of The Flies. Don't let the costumes, hair colors and makeup fool you. This show somehow pulls you in and makes you care about the characters and the world there now living in. For every teen that thought the world would be a better place without adults and think they could do a better job, think again. This is the world of THE TRIBE. How long could you live off tinned food (caned food) before you would have to organize farms? How would you get kids to work on a farm? Do you pay them? If so, with what? Or do you use kids as slaves? Who do you go to when you get sick? What to you do when all the antibiotics run out? All these and more are things that come up in THE TRIBE.

I have all 5 box sets that I bought from Amazon UK years ago, but now I plan on getting the USA version too.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Tribe: Season 1 part 1 US release March 31, 2012
By Myst
I've loved this show for years and was so happy that it is finally being released in Region 1. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes post-apocalyptic dramas.
However, I was disappointed that there were no extras at all on this first set. The menus are extremely plain and only get you to the episode you want to watch. This first half of season 1 includes episodes 1-26. There aren't even any subtitles available for those who either need them or can't watch with the sound up. If this is the extent of the plans for the US releases then I would recommend that fans invest in a cheap all region DVD player(often a code can turn your DVD player all region) and just purchase the R2 copies for their extras etc. You can pick up the Region 2 FULL season sets for less than they are selling this half of the first season anyway. I am so disappointed that after such a long wait, this is all there is to show for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dream Really DID Stay Alive!!! January 31, 2012
By Kyle
Can it really be!? The Tribe on dvd in region 1 aka America!? This is the best news I've heard in ages! No more having to watch grainy/wavy region 2 dvds on crap bootleg region-free dvd players! I'm going to snatch this first set up as soon as it comes out! Cannot WAIT to own all 5 seasons. Really hope Shout! Factory will release all 260 episodes. This show is awesome!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally The Tribe on DVD for the US! December 16, 2011
By Hil
I have been a fan since the show was first put on air. I was over joyed when I got the news that the DVD was coming out in the US. This show means a lot to tons of fans around the world. It is hard to explain but I have learned so much about myself and the world around me from watching this show brilliantly done from New Zealand.

While it can be cheesy at times, The Tribe has some great lessons for kids of all ages and it is entertaining enough that no matter what the age it can be enjoyable. If you are at all a fan of Lord of the Flies I highly suggest you check this out.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY! May 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
So, they finally came out on DVD! I randomly searched the Tribe on to see if they had anything on region 1 and they finally did, had to wait years for it but it happened.

Only downside of this DVD is that it's in two parts and I can't wait for June 12th. Every time I see an episode I need to watch them all, the show's amazing.

Finally a Tribe DVD available for America -now we need the other 4 seasons for U.S. fans. I discovered this New Zealand-U.k. series while in Germany on UKs Channel 5 in re-runs-first season. Was an adult in 20s & now as much older adult still enjoy The Tribe! :)
Not much available for fans of The Tribe, esp. years after series end... I'm not very familiar with the two more recent CD Soundtracks, but a NZ friend a few yrs back gifted me with ~the ORIGINAL 2000 ABE MESSIAH CD~ which is a good album with the theme song & a variety of pop songs sung by The Tribes cast members. Unfortunately I now must sell this htf Soundtrack currently on Ebay (as of April.'14).
The Tribe lives on ~ Dream On!

I had been wanting to watch this series from the beginning but could not find one that would play on our DVD. I didn't want to have to buy an extra DVD for just this series!! Hope they keep transferring the other seasons

If we can get seasons 2 and 3 out I'd buy them. Very happy to finally own this show after so many years. This is a better set up than the original releases in my opinion.
