Crusoe

Series Summary
Daniel Defoe's classic novel gets a makeover (with a bit of a comedic twist) in this saga of a young man, Robinson Crusoe, shipwrecked on a desert island, where his unlikely friendship with a native named Friday helps him hold onto his sanity as he desires to return home to his wife and children. While the current lives of the two men are filled with hungry cannibals, wild animals and terrifying lightning storms, flashbacks reveal Crusoe's life with his wife, Susannah, before he became a castaway.

  • Once you figure out that the show is pure fluffy action-adventure and uses the book only as a flimsy guidepost, it's actually pretty entertaining. Show More

  • The chemistry between Winchester and Chirisa is great and very believeable, which goes to the acting ability of both men. It's not easy to make relationships seem real in this out-there fantasy. Show More

  • Hokey and poorly paced with unfathomably lame flashbacks, it's like a relentlessly mediocre movie of the week that still has 11 more hours to go. Show More
