Avid Survivor Fan---Not that impressed

"I bought this for my parents since they didn't get to watch the first season. I would have rather watched the full season again than what they considered to be the "highlights". The DVD starts out showing the castaways upon the boat and traveling to the island. Then you get to see them arriving on the island and setting up camp. From here, the DVD starts introducing the castaways by showing their audition tapes, their audition interview and then a few highlights of their stay on the island. Then they proceed to show you each person getting voted off and what they said after they were eliminated. They follow the order of who was voted off first, second, etc. The DVD also shows a few challenges and more emotional moments of the series, but they didn't show the best parts of the season. I watched the whole first season and was really surprised of the things they left out during the editting of this DVD. I was very dissappointed and thought that this would be something that my parents would love since they had started watching the shows in the last few seasons. But my dad was nodding off during the viewing and it looked like several (my whole family was watching) were getting bored and watching the clock. It did cause a little discussion after we were finished, but we were mainly talking about what we missed. I really wish they would have shown just the highlights of the season instead of all the interviews and auditions. Watching the whole season in its entirity would have been nice too."
Full season coming--avoid this

"On May 18, 2004, the entire first season of Survivor will be released on a 5-disc set. The first four contain the episodes and bonus features. This is the 5th disc in the set. DON'T BUY THIS DISC IF YOU PLAN TO PURCHASE THE BOX SET.This disc isn't as bad as most people say, but the season set will definitely be the better buy."
