Flight 29 Down

Show Summary

As a school trip, a group of students embark upon an eco-adventure camping trip in Micronesia. But when their charter plane suddenly crashes during a tropical storm and flies off a cliff, the young students find themselves on a deserted island. They have no radio contact and they think they won't be there for long - but they're wrong.
The show centers on seven of the students. The survivors consist of:
Nathan: A wilderness lover, strong Daley: Politician, good student Taylor: Popular, future model Eric: Funny, not serious Melissa: Peace maker, not athletic Jackson: New kid, quiet, mysterious Lex: Daley's step-brother, smart
Now these kids, and their pilot, are going to have to survive with each other and develop relationships. Obstacles will appear that will make it difficult to survive. Some of the students do not take the situation seriously but they come to realize it's no vacation.

  • It's like a cheap lost! Without the great plot line that makes it worth watching! I'm reallt giving this a 0.0

    1.0
    Let's see, were to start. Yes, the plane crashed am I right. Last time I checked crashes BAD! Crashes make the engine of the plane fail, yet how to they listen to radio? How do they have a complex system of wires running threw the island, and they can't even call the coast guard? Kids can be stupid, but not this stupid!

    So why did I watch this show in the first place? It's simple, it was a show I've never seen before, it looked like it was like Lost, and I can't handed all the blood that the show has, and the in one show, putting fire on an open cut.

    But it's not anything like lost, Lost is good! This just is embarrassing to watch.





    The next thing is the "flashbacks". There one every five minutes or less of something we just saw! The plane, a coconut, a pair of sandals. Wow. I just saw them!Hey Lost has flashbacks,ones that we never saw! You know, ones that gose deap into there lives! That show why the make there decisions, these are just stupid! What do they thing we are stupid? Well, I guess they are onto something, if you watch this show and like it, you must be pretty stupid.

    ANYWAY. One *little* kid is the smartest person on the island, that's pretty embarrassing wouldn't you think? I'm just saying.





    Another thing, why the dell computer would KIDS be "driving" an AIRPLANE! Last time I checked there was an age and certain ability level you must reach first! But, I guess that the show producers would thin we're just little kids and to stupid to realize it. Not happening!Another thing a dederted island! Wow, doesn't that sound like lost, AGAIN! They really can't think of anything in the bounds of reality and that is not copying lost.Wow! I but before long there's going to be an wild animal on the loose, and a whole other side of the island with other people! There might even be a bomb!



    Before you have you noticed there acting like it was a TRUE STORY? They have a little video record thing that you know, records everything.Talking like it's really happening. Acting like there never going to see the light of another day again!Those dumb little DAY 1 -morning DAY 2 - night DAY109289 - The middle os the sea at hlf past noon.



    Do you get it yet? This is just a cheap version of lost. And I thought Lost was copyrighted! I wonder, how long will it be before this is sued! Ha ha! I can't wait!



    I give it, 0.0! I hope this will get off the air! Oh yeah, for you n00b supporters, feel free to send me hate mail. I love it!moreless
  • It's no Lost but...

    It's not Lost but you gotta hand it to the creators of Flight 29 Down. They copied alot of Lost's good story telling elements and toned it down just to the right level for younger audiences to enjoy and learn. I'm a little older than the audience this show was designed for and Lost happens to be my addicted drug, but this show is quite impressive. The teen stereotypes are not so spiteful as they are in other teen shows. Some are funny, others are annoying, but for some reason I still seem to enjoy watching all the characters. I like the setup of the video diary. The show's educational purpose (as it is a Saturday morning program) is to teach kids about the basic elements of outdoor survival and more importantly, the necessity of working together as a team. And with a group like this one, working together becomes a tough but interesting challenge. Keep this show going, I got high hopes for it.moreless
  • Jackson(johnny pacar) is the hottest character on the show he keeps everyone together.

    Johnny Pacar (Jackson) keeps everyone together on flight 29 down. He is the most cooperative of the group and goes along with whatever everyone says.He is the most charming of the set, and adventurous. He finds himself in a criss cross relationship between melissa and Taylor.But I think he liked Taylor more... I hope they have a renunion of the show sometime, and release some more behind the scenes info on the show on dvd.By the way to the folks @DK I would like to know some more information on the set of flight 29 down and its choice of location for the original show.What made you all chose the "island". By the way are you all planning on having another season ??moreless
  • Teens on a school vacation, then suddenly there is a plane crash and they are on a deserted tropical island. The group splits up, but the show is mostly made up of 7 characters. There is hate, love, reality, and the importance of sticking together.moreless

    I instantly got addicted to this show. Sure, it is sorta like lost, but if you missed a second, you understood it. Sure there were a couple "I don't get it" episodes, but it all made sense in the end. The show was not surrounded by love, but love got its few moments, and they were sweet. There was jelousy, which made me want to watch more and more. You had your stereotypes, and the mysterious one, which got you hooked. There were natural disasters, and human made disasters, and the thought soon hits them that they may be there for a long time. Near the end episode, the groups split up, and there are fights. The people sometimes wanna make you punch the character in the face, but you love them anyway. I would love to tell you all the whole story, but then there would be nothing for you to watch. Enjoy, you'll love it!moreless
  • a plane crashes on an uninhabited island... same general idea as lost only geared to a younger age level.

    5.0
    The show's main theme is much like that of "lord of the flies" in that their main struggle is to work together to survive, reflecting the theories of john lock's "natural laws". while the basic principles of the show are intriguing, the plot was too centered on relationships and minor altercations. The story line could have been improved by adding a source of major conflict in the group and cutting the sappy "i wonder if he likes me" crap. in a real life scenario they would focus on the every day stuff like survival and rescue rather than dating. personaly i think that far too little credit is given to the teenage generation's ability to set aside popularity, fashion, and dating.moreless
