5.0 out of 5 stars amazing reality TV show 17 Oct 2010
By lorzx
Format:DVD
Survivor is my favourite reality TV programme. I completely agree with the other review, I have no idea why this hasn't taken off in the UK because it is amazing! It's such an interesting game, which no contest has a sure fire strategy for, which is what makes it such great viewing!

Mark Burnett is the creator of the show and he got the idea for it after reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding. It is basically about two competing tribes whom have to battle it out in challenges and also survive the other people around them to win a prize. This is a fantasic strategy game which makes for excellent viewing.

I would recommend not just this season but every single one, I've seen almost 10 seasons all up, and they have each been unique, with different characterful contestants all with varying strategies, which is why this is a must see!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius! 10 April 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show is hugely popular in America, but hardly known in the UK for some reason which I just can't understand. But if you ever want to watch reality tv at its finest, you can't do better than invest in this DVD.

This is actually the second series of the show Survivor, and considered by fans to be the all-time best. It features 16 individuals, divided into two teams in the Australian outback, who have to learn to work together as a team to survive and progress so that they have a chance of winning a cool $1,000,000.

It's not just about physical excellence. It's a political game where you have to be able to forge alliances, sometimes with people you can't stand, so you can get ahead in the game. And the more ruthless characters will ruin someone's chances by subtly turning other members of their own team against them. As the motto of this show says, "Trust no one!"

It's a brilliant show - and I just can't understand why it's not shown on British terrestial tv. So pick up a copy and marvel at what some people will do or put themselves through in order to win a millionn dollars!

5.0 out of 5 stars 42 Days, 16 people . . . One Survivor 28 July 2005
By Joshua Spaulding - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was never a fan of reality television, and to this day only watch two reality shows, Survivor being one of them. Thus, I watched only one episode of The Australian Outback when it was on television. The first contestant voted off, Debb Eaton, lived in the next town over from where I grew up, so I tuned in to see how she did and after that, didn't tune back.

And now after watching this fantastic DVD set, I am disappointed I didn't keep watching. While I have seen only the three most recent seasons (All-Stars, Vanuatu and Palau) plus the DVD of the first season, I can understand why people who are big fans of this series consistently rank Survivor Australia as one of the best seasons ever. The perfect mix of people in a great environment led to a truly captivating series.

The second season provided some very memorable moments, moments that can probably be included among the very best in Survivor history. Of course there is the famous beef jerky incident where "aspiring actress" and resident evil woman Jerri Manthey accuses Army officer Kel Gleason of smuggling beef jerky. Who wasn't thrilled for farmer-schoolteacher Rodger "Kentucky Joe" Bingham when he confronted his fear of heights and his lack of swimming ability by leaping off a huge cliff into the water below? I am sure everyone was happy for gourmet (yes I think he can cook rice) chef Keith Famie when he proposed to his girlfriend in a quick internet chat from the Outback and she said yes. His emotion was genuine as he grabbed Jeff Probst and hugged him. Of course, the incredible relationship between Kentucky Joe and young footwear designer Elisabeth Filarski was a unique one, but one that kept them together until the last few days. Jerri's flirting with Colby Donaldson was amazingly pathetic, and it was actually funny to watch him as you knew he wasn't even remotely interested. And who can forget Michael Skupin's fall in the fire, the one move that essentially changed the game.

Of course, when Colby, the auto customizer from Texas, chose Tennessee mom Tina Wesson to join him in the final two, he assured he would finish second, but knew that Tina would be a deserving winner. This was a great moment in Survivor history, as a player put his friendship and alliance ahead of his own personal game. Not until Ian in Pulau did we see something quite like that again. It was a good move and Colby came out, although not with a million dollars, looking like the good guy.

Throw in some great characters, such as Maralyn "Mad Dog" Hershey, the retired cop from Virginia, Amber Brkich, the youngest of the group, who would go on to win the All-Stars edition, yet who in this edition was quite tentative, but hung tough, the conniving Jeff Varner who would start a battle between others and watch it brew, trainer Alicia Callaway and her finger-waving, and vegetarian Kimmi Kappenberg, the butt of much of Alicia's finger waves and you have the makings of a great season.

By comparison to the seasons now, these Survivors were given a lot to help their survival and the challenges weren't quite as difficult as the ones we have seen in the past few years, but they were still quite entertaining and it was great to see the original challenges that some of the newer seasons have used, or built off of.

The story of the season early on was the domination of Kucha at the challenges. They had Ogakor feeling down and depressed and it looked like, heading into the merge, that Kucha would have the numbers to just pick off Ogakor one-by-one. Then came Michael's fall in the fire. When he was airlifted out of the game, Kucha lost their advantage and the planning by Ogakor came into play and they were successful, as the final three were all members of the original Ogakor. In the end, it was Colby's domination that helped to push him to the finals, where he chose Tina to sit next to him and the rest is history.

There is a reason that five of these castaways (Alicia, Colby, Tina, Amber, Jerri) were chosen to participate in the All-Star version. This group of people was one of the finest casts assembled and the dynamics that came into play really made this season a joy to watch.

And of course, I would be remiss if I didn't mention Elisabeth one more time. In the first season, the incredibly beautiful Colleen Haskell became "America's Sweetheart." In this season, the incredibly cute Elisabeth took over that role. Her relationship with Rodger gave her a very real feel, and to anyone watching, she felt like she would be someone you would be friends with in the outside world.

The bonus features on this disc are very solid. There are six different commentary tracks, with two from Alicia, Kimmi and Michael (including the one where he falls in the fire), two from Keith, Rodger, Amber and Tina and two from Colby and Jeff Probst, who really began defining the role of realilty show host in this season. To this day, there is nobody who has that role down as well as he does. The two with Colby and Jeff are really, really good, while the others are very good and insightful. There are a couple of documentaries as well and the mid-season recap episode is included. Also included in the set is the previously released "Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments" which among other things features little bits on every Survivor and their time in the Outback.

On a personal note, I was watching that bonus disc and during the spot on Debb, they showed her sitting on her motorcycle on my mother's front lawn, which happens to be right next to a covered bridge. It was pretty funny to see and took me by surprise.

So whether you've been a fan of the show since day one, or it something you are learning to like, this set is top-notch. You will not be disappointed. Now let's hope they consider releasing more season sets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still my favorite... after all these years. 25 Mar 2005
By M. Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: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.

Additional Comment:
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars MAYBE THE BEST SURVIVOR EVER 6 April 2005
By Tim Janson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a better season of Survivor than season number two. It not only had some of the most memorable contestants, but also some very memorable moments. This seasons would produce no fewer than five Survivor all-stars! I mean just look who was on season two from the Australian Outback:

Amber Brkich, one of the hottest women ever on Survivor who would go onto win Survivor All-stars and now competing in the Amazing Race.

Alicia Callaway: the Buff, brazen no-nonsense one who got into the famous finger waving match with Kimmi. A Survivor All-star.

Michael Skupin, who suffered one of the worst injuries in Survivor history when he fell into a fire and badly burned his hands.

Jerri Manthey: Probably the all time B*tch Queen of Survivor. Also a Survivor all-star.

Colby Donaldson: The hunky runner-up now turned actor. Another Survivor all-star.

Tina Wesson. The Winner. A Very HOT forty-something! Another All-star!

Elisabeth Filarski..now Elisabeth Hasselbeck of "The View"

Keith Famie, the much maligned chef who got engaged over the internet.

Rodger Bingham, the All-time good guy of Survivor!

This season really had it all. Great looking women and men, intrigue, romance, injuries and more. Who can forget Jerri accusing Kel of eating a hidden beef jerky in the second episode leading to Kel's being voted off. Or what about Kimmi and Alicia getting into a fight over eating the chickens...

Later, Colby gets a reward to visit the coral reef and brings back coral for everyone which we find out is illegal in Australia. Then the tribe has their camp wiped out by a flood including all of their rice. And in one of Survivors all-time dumbest moves, when it came down to 3 final candidates, Colby voted out keith, instead of the more popular and univerally loved Tina, assuring that Tina would win the Million bucks!

What a great show and season!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Survivor Season 23 Feb 2005
By G. Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Yep, Richard and Susan needs to take a back seat to this one.

Can't wait. Back to when Survivor wasn't all pretty boys & girls. Except Elisabeth of course ;) The flood, the fire, the pig hunting, the vegetarian. Was an excellent combination. These survivors were hungry. Not like the latest episodes. They had to hunt and find food. Roger over-coming his fear of water is a good inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King Of All Seasons 18 Feb 2005
By Mikey B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I have waited a very long time to see Survivor's second installation again. Following the success of the Richard Hatch-helmed adventure the previous summer, "Outback" aired in the spring of 2001, drawing the highest ratings of any prior or successive Survivor season. It's highlights:

The final four featured "Outback" winner Tina Wesson, runner-up Colby Donaldson (that's his face you see on Schick Razor ads), arrogant TV chef Keith Famie, and blonde and tearful sweetheart Elisabeth Filarski. Relive the rise and fall of Survivor's greatest femme villain, Jerri Manthey. See the sizzling hot and eventual "All-Stars" winner Amber Brkich play for the first time...in a different bikini! Entertain yourself with intense fueding, as Alicia Calaway's finger-wagging has never looked better in digital performance. Burn your eyes in the sight of Michael Skupin's tragic hands-first fall into the campfire, prematurely ending his game. Witness the underdog Ogakor tribe battle its way back into the fight against Kucha, and dominate the game post-merge. Hear out sassy Jeff Varner's quips as he...well, you get the point. Enjoy the season!
