I for one have never seen a single episode of Survivor.... for either of the seasons... And I was considering getting this as well. I am sure it is something I would be able to get into... but I was also worried about whether it was a good buy for repeat viewings. I been wanting to check it out... just never did for some reason.
Yeah, I bought it today and it's a really good set. I love the packaging; I thought it was just going to be a fold out digipack but they are in slimcases. The Survivor Greatest Moments DVD is even still shrink wrapped, with the security stickers on. I've already got through 4 episodes and its still exciting as ever. The commentary on the first episode is great to. For the price there is no reason to pass up on this set. About 13hrs of entertainment for $35; it's an absolute steal. Lets hope it sells well so we can get the other seasons.
I think it's great for repeat viewings. Watching the game again knowing things that you didn't know the first time, you see more clearly how things happened. It's interesting to watch how people condradict themselves.
As for the episodes, from what I understand (my set just shipped today) they are supposed to be exactly as aired. There is extra footage on the bonus disc, which as someone else said, is also uncensored.
I went to Target at 9:00am on Tuesday. I am so glad I did to because they only had 2 copies.Each were $34.99 which it is on sale so if you want it for that price buy it now.Also they had Friends the finale for $9.99.It's funny because the Friends dvd says Limited Edition and they had like 12-15 of it & the Survivor dvd they only had 2. I love the Survivor dvd!I really hope they come out with the others!
This is a great set, I'm glad Paramount went with the slim cases, the only nit is that they list the person voted off under the description for each episode on the back of each slim case, so if you are watching for the first time, be careful.
Hopefully this will sell well and we'll get future seasons, I think David L. mentioned a few weeks back that All-Stars is being readied for release next.
Really?? Survivor All Stars is next? Man.....why not Survivor 2.This can't be good.....After S1 release of Real World they released Real World 12 Las Vegas the latest show.And since then they haven't made any more.Now if Survivor was to go from S1 to S8 back to 2, 3, 4 ect. then I would be ok with that.PLEASE PLEASE just release Survivor 2.I love S1 & S2 the best.S3 was ok but S4-S7 I could live without.
