An ambitious adaptation of Daniel Defoe’s masterpiece, Crusoe explores the perils and challenges facing the world’s most famous castaway (Philip Winchester, Flyboys) and his native friend Friday (Tongayi Chirisa) who struggle to survive on a desert island with little more than their wits. Far from the bonds of 17th-century life, the ingenious Crusoe builds a breathtaking and altogether modern home high up in the trees to elude his enemies. Overcoming marauding militias, hungry cannibals, wild cats, starvation and apocalyptic lightning storms, Crusoe dreams of the day he will be reunited with his true love. Part MacGyver, part Castaway and part Pirates of the Caribbean, this contemporary tale about love, friendship, survival and personal discovery is rife with unforgettable action and inspired humor.

Pirates! In an Adventure with Handsome Leading Men. . ..
What's not to love about this series opener? It has Adventure! It has Castaways! It has Pirates! Not to mention a Scrappy Dog and Handsome Leading Men! It was like watching a movie! I also learned how much treehouse you can build out of the hull of a capsized ship.
What a Great Surprise!
Saw this the night it aired and it was better than I expected, in my opinion. Sure its not an exact retelling of the classic Robinson Crusoe story but these days what is. Its meant to be a fun adventure show and thats what is. Hope it can keep it up and i'll be catching every episode from now on.
