Total Drama Island

Show Summary

This animated take on the reality genre sees twenty-two teens competing in physical challenges in a dilapidated summer camp setting over a sixty day period. Season Two sees the name of the show change to Total Drama Action with fourteen teens competing in movie related challenges on a run down movie studio lot. In the third season, which has been titled Total Drama - World Tour, fifteen contestants - including brand new characters - travelled the world and burst into spontaneous every episode. The fifth season, titled Revenge ofthe Island, had an all new cast return to the island featured in the inaugural season.

  • Man, it's such an awesome show!

    The funniest parts were: Lindsay's dumbness, the characters barfing, Harold saying "boobies" and Leshawna fighting Heather.



    Characters: Designs are aweschum! The characters I hate are: Heather, Courtney, Alejandro, Eva and Staci.
  • One of the best, and probably only animated reality tv series there is!

    Awesome show! I was sad when the season ended. Then I got glad again when i found out there would be more seasons to it. Total Drama World Tour was by far the best season so far to me. But TTI was a great show. The characters were likable and they had that one bitchy character (Heather) who would manipulate others to stay in the game. The show kept me entertained and I wouldn't mind rewatching the episodes over again.moreless

    I'm not really into reality tv shows. The only one I ever was interested in was VH1's rock of love season 1 and 2. Other than that, reality tv shows annoy the hell out of me. So when Total Drama Island came out, I was very skeptical.



    Indeed, the show does run on stereotypes an awful lot but I decided to try watching it. To start things off, I really HATE how lazy the art style is. This cartoon came out when art style (in my opinion) started to decline in quality. Not that I hate eccentric type of designs but TDI's style is just lazy. The characters anatomy is just an eyesore to me. Anyway, on to the show itself.



    The one thing that kept me watching was seeing how far they'd go with the situations in the show. In that one episode where they did a boat challenge and Heather's top got caught on a tree branch and ripped off, I was flabbergasted that they actually went that far on a kids show. So I just had to see what else they'd try to get away. Needless to say, there were a few parts that made me chuckle but due to the excess toilet humor, it was very rare as I'm not into constant toilet humor.



    As for the characters, I only really liked "The weird goth girl" Gwen but only because as you learn more about the character, you see how level headed she is and plus, I could somewhat relate to the character, Bridget the surfer girl, Izzy the crazy girl, and Jeff the party guy. All the others were just meh to me.



    The only thing that really annoys me about the show is that it wouldn't die. Island was, mediocre at best but watchable if there was nothing else on. The second season was okay but I tuned out halfway through as I got bored. I tried watching the debut of the third and just found it stupid. I just didn't like how they tried to milk this mediocre cartoon and wouldn't let it die.



    The funny thing is that if they went with a more intricate art style that didn't look so lazy and done in flash, I would have been a lot more interested in it. But alas, it was not.moreless
  • Zzzzzzzzzzzzz...........

    3.0
    Sorry but I can't stand reality shows in any form. Sugar coating stuff like this isn't going to may it any more interesting. When stuff like this is on I'll 1. watch something interesting or 2. shut the TV.



    But because its animated I'll give it a score for effort. Nice try.
