Still my favorite... after all these years.,
This review is from: Survivor - The Australian Outback: Season 2 (DVD)
Wow...this one takes me back. Has it really been four years since it aired? This is the season that really hooked me as a fan and has kept me watching to this day...even through some less than stellar seasons. Coming off the hot heels of the enormously successful Borneo; Survivor matured and solidified itself in Australia becoming one of the defining Reality Shows of all time.
I remember this season as being so huge that I had to listen to every radio/TV talk show and commentary. I rooted for Colby, sympathized with Roger, and was glued to the set. I even became addicted to the website. I still have my "Survivor II Field Guide" with map and tribe bios. I was truly a Survivor junky and I didn't think I would be. I have to add that Jeff Probst excellent hosting skills were a big part of that.
I think the other positive reviews have really expressed the same things I feel but I have to say that for fans of Survivor to get the feeling this season had for us, you have to remember how caught up we all were in this show in the Spring of 01. I'm not sure if any season since has really captured the drama that prevailed during Australia or held the media's attention. I wish there could have been more. (I did later become an advent Rupert fan.)
Best moment: The rainstorm that devastated the camp and had them scrambling out over a raging river for their last tin of rice. Oh, and Jeff scolding them for their bad rationing practices.
Finally got the video and it lives up to my expectations. Fantastic and all the extras you can shake a Didjeridu at!! I love the commentary. How can you beat Jeff and Colby discussing the show over margaritas?
