Crusoe TV Show Facts

Based on the three-hundred year old adventure novel Robinson Crusoe, Crusoe is the tale of a castaway who finds himself far from home and having to survive on a remote island in the Pacific. NBC revives this classic tale as a dramatic TV show!

Characters

  • Robinson Crusoe - The hero of the series, Robinson is a mariner (sailor) who heads to the high seas despite his parents’ wishes, leading to the fateful adventure that strands him on an island for several years.
  • Friday - A liberated slave (remember, this is the 1700s) who Robinson helps escape from a pack of cannibals on the island, with plans of employing him as a servant (1700s!). They soon become friends.
  • Susannah Crusoe - Robinson’s wife and true love, who is left behind in England to deal with life without him after he is cast away. The thought of getting back to her keeps Robinson sane on the island.
  • Santana - Captain of the Spanish guard, he befriends Robinson on one of his adventures.

I have read several long books, but one series I quite enjoyed years ago was the Daughters of the Moon series (I have the first six stories in two books) by  Lynne Ewing who in which come to a total of 1,655 pages. Other than that, I really enjoyed Witch World by Christopher Pike with 521 pages, The Help by Kathryn Stockett with 522 pages, and hands down, Grave Mercy by  Robin LaFevers with 566 pages.
