Review of The Island

Mondays, 10:00 PM ET on NBC

60 minutes

Generations have wondered if they could survive being stranded on a desert island. But how would people cope if they had to do it, for real, and with only themselves to rely on? Adventurer Bear Grylls abandons American men on a remote, uninhabited Pacific island for a month. They will be completely alone, filming themselves, and with only the clothes they're wearing and some basic tools. The island may look like paradise but behind the beaches it can be hell on earth. When stripped of all the luxuries and conveniences of 21st-century living, does modern American man still have the spirit and resources to survive?

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Watch 14 men struggle on a desert pacific island. If you like this type of survival show and don't need the American patriotism I'd recommend the British version though: To me the camera work is better, the men are less overly confident at first and less whiny after they realise it isn't so easy after all.
