Inspiring Family Survival Series

I watched this with my husband and daughter, age 10. We absolutely loved it. The show is filled with life lessons about forgiveness, hope, communication, teamwork, etc. It drives home the ultimate lesson in life which is to look beyond yourself to the greater good of others. The cast is a group of everyday individuals but each with a willingness to grow and learn and overcome their short-comings as they face incredible adversity in life and on the islands.

Super impressed

This has amazing stories of amazing people and I am totally hooked. It’s great insight into the way people think, their struggles and things they have overcome and a fantastic reminder to not judge a book by its cover. So impressed with the casting and story telling.

The castaway part is secondary to every "castaway"continually reflects about life. No action at all, very boring. What was ABC thinking when they made this "Piece of work". The castaways are in paradise with luggage and somewhat limited resources and most only sit around and talk. Extremely boring. Crying and whining about life.
