Product Description

In the wake of a deadly virus that has wiped out the adult population, the children of the world must now survive on their own. The sophisticated hi-tech society created by their forefathers has collapsed into anarchy, confusion and fear.

The future is theirs to create.

LANGUAGE: ENGLISH, FRENCH, GERMAN

From Amazon.co.uk

Let's admit it right away, The Tribe may just be the best kids' TV show ever. To be precise, it's for older children and teenagers (and their parents will find it insightful, too), the very age group that occupies all the roles in this post-apocalyptic tale. Mixing the scenario of Lord of the Flies (except there are girls in it as well) with the visual imagery of Mad Max and the angst-ridden psychodrama of Sweet Valley High, The Tribe tells of a near-future in which the world's adult population has been wiped out by a virus. Of course, society's infrastructure has gone, too, so the youthful survivors not only have to deal with all the usual trials and tribulations of childhood and adolescence but must also develop some form of functioning society of their own, without any form of adult intervention and with only the barest amount of technology. What happens, of course, is that all the social ills of the old world, from bullying to teenage pregnancy, are writ 10 times larger. The ways in which the characters cope (or fail to cope) with these issues are both exasperating and deeply moving. --Roger Thomas --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The release of THE TRIBE on video is great. It's taken 4 years to release it, but here it is. The boxset consists of seven tapes that seem to come to an end all too soon. Re-living the early days of 'The Tribe' when Amber and Bray were but teenagers and Patsy and Cloe argued over who was going to feed Porky and Bob! It was great to see how the The Tribe has changed and the characters grown, and to revisit some past charaters. Anyone who likes The Tribe should have this in their collection. I recommend you go and buy it right now!

The Tribe is one of the best kid's TV shows of all time. This set includes all 52 half-hour episodes from the first season. It tells the story of a world where all the adults have been killed off by a deadly virus and only children and teenagers remain. The streets are dangerous as many of the teenagers form into vicious and violent gangs or 'tribes' who fight to obtain food, water and supplies.

The programme focuses on a group of kids who come together by accident to form a different kind of tribe, one where they help each other. The 'Mallrats' include some very different personalities, from the fiesty and moral Amber to the sweet motherly Salene, the airheaded Zandra and the sexist but gorgeous Lex. Despite lots of arguments they soon become a strong Tribe, but they have a lot to deal with as they suffer from attacks and kidnappings by other tribes, food shortages, and the return of the virus.

The acting is pretty good for a kid's programme, the characters are realistic and likeable, the storylines are really exciting and the make-up and costumes are brilliant! The Tribe is pretty addictive viewing - watch one episode and you'll probably watch the next 5 too.

This set also contains special features - a Making Of featurette, character profiles, half an hour of outtakes, and a Tribe on Tour featurette with a commentary by Lex (Caleb Ross).

A couple of words of warning = NOT ALL THE STORYLINES ARE SUITABLE FOR YOUNG KIDS. The programme deals with teenage pregnancy, attempted suicide, eating disorders, sex, and death, although it does it all in a responsible and non-explicit manner. I would say it's main target audience is from about 10/11 to 21.

I personally love The Tribe. I started watching it by accident when I was usrfing one day and it's one of my favourite shows now. A virus has wiped out all adults, so the world is in anarchy and the kids have to form tribes to survive.

The Tribe centres on one city and the life of the tribes there, mostly on one tribe called The Mallrats. The Mallrats are the 'good' tribe, and are mostly in conflict with the other tribes, there's a lot of tension and angst. You have to be harsh to survive.

I particularly like the visual aspect of The Tribe, especially the amazing costumes and make up, and also the gritty surroundings of the city. I seriously reccommend buying this DVD.

I've seen this series on tv two times and let me tell you: I can watch these episodes over and over again! They're absolutely wonderful and I'm a big Tribe-fan. Series 1 is the best series of The Tribe, but the other ones are great too! I would definitely recommend these videos!

This is a Great show. 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 5 seasons, 260 episodes of THE TRIBE.

The bad news is this was never released in a USA DVD format (NTSC) and it never will be. I got all 5 of my box sets from right here. They shipped them from the UK right to my door here in USA with no problems. Don't worry to much about them being in PAL format. Many of the big box mart stores sell DVD players that will play both PAL and NTSC formats for around $40 US. Most of the time it will tell you on the outside box or you can ask to look at the owners manual and it will be listed on the specifications page.

If your from North America and sitting on the fence waiting for a USA DVD format you can forget it. It's not going to happen. There were only so many copies of THE TRIBE produced and when there gone there gone. Do some footwork and I guarantee you'll find a player at a box mart store near you that will play both PAL and NTSC format. Then come back here and get all 5 seasons. You'll never forgive yourself if you don't.

The Tribe Season 1 is easily my favourite season, although Season 2 had the better storylines season 1 was The Tribe for me and was the only season to show the Mall Rats as a close nit group. As the show was originally intended to be a one season series there is a lot of character development for various characters, especially Trudy portrayed by Antonia Prebble who becomes very likelable character during the second half of the season compared to the first half. The storylines keept on getting better as the series progressed, and as far as the acting goes there were quite a few talented actors/actresses among the cast who defintely made the first season for me Antonia Prebble,Beth Allen,Caleb Ross,Victoria Spence and Amy Morrison to name a few were all very enjoyable to watch in their roles.

The Tribe was my favourite show when it aired on Channel 5 back in 99 and was very disappointed when the show wrapped although the last couple of season's weren't up to scratch. I defintely recommened the first season of the show to anyone who hasn't seen it, your defintely missing out.
