Overview

Survivor was that rare television show that grew into a genuine pop-culture phenomenon; it became the highest-rated summer series in the history of American television, and the only program broadcast in 2000 to draw a larger audience than Survivor's final episode was that year's Super Bowl. Survivor: Season One - Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments compiles two-and-a-half hours of footage from the series, presented uncensored for the first time (language that was bleeped and nudity that was blurred for broadcast is featured here in all its R-rated glory), including previously unseen outtakes, audition reels from the participants, all the tribal council meetings (and the often angry reactions of those voted off the island), and the notorious rat-eating sequence. The video also includes interviews with Mark Burnett, creator of Survivor, and Jeff Probst, the show's host.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
When CBS launched Survivor, no one could have predicted the viewing frenzy that followed: The country was immediately hooked on the weekly action-adventure series that felt a bit wicked -- like spying on your neighbors. The premise -- sixteen real people dropped on an island on the South Pacific for 40 nights, with one person being kicked off the island each week and the last remaining "survivor" pocketing a million dollars - proved more interesting than a voyeuristic game-show. Sure, there was the ultra-hokey ritualism, spewed straightfaced by host Jeff Probst, but the drama inherent in this competitive setup grew more compelling each week. Survivor: Season One pieces together some of the holes left in the plot by the constraints of a weekly slot. There's cursing and nudity aplenty (a warning, though: the latter comes courtesy of Richard Hatch) as well as some graphic footage of the show's infamous rat eating. Did you hate Gretchen Cordy and wonder how in the world she ended up on the island? Now see what the producers saw in her with the contestants' audition tapes, previously guarded to the death by CBS. And for everyone whose VCR wasn't running that fateful night in August 2000, Susan Hawk's departing speech -- you know, the really angry one -- is here in its entirety as it, like the rest of the castaways, continues to seep into the country's collective psyche. The DVD of Survivor: Season One has enough goodies to keep it from being banished from your viewing rotation. Aside from detailed island maps and contestant profiles, it features each contestant's voting history and complete voting confessions -- which are especially enlightening, considering the short shrift CBS gave them each week. Interviews with Probst and the mastermind behind Survivor, executive producer Mark Burnett, will satisfy and fascinate even the most jaded reality show fan.
