Wrecked (2016-) – a Lost spoof

About

A new comedy on TBS about a bunch of nobodies who get stranded on a desert island after their plane goes down and all hell breaks loose.

Storyline

Wrecked follows a group of extremely diverse survivors of a plane crash on a remote island who must adjust to life in a dangerous new world that poses unique threats — mostly brought upon themselves. No longer plugged in, the group must navigate this new society and learn to live without the comforts of modern life…like social media, Wi-Fi, indoor plumbing and Chipotle.

Cast

Ratings

IMDB 7.0/10

Audience Score 84%

Critics Consensus: Wrecked is an imaginative spoof of Lost with a game cast that doesn’t have enough good material to work with.

Trivia

Season 1 is filmed in Puerto Rico, Season 2 in Fiji.

“Wrecked” plays as an amalgamation of three different television series: “Lost”, “Gilligan’s Island”, and “Police Squad”, with the actors playing out the absurd situations (most of which they unwittingly create themselves) and dialogue completely straight.

The character of Liam is clearly an homage to the character of Jack in Lost. Liam dies in the pilot episode when the nose of the plane crushes him. The original idea in Lost was to have Jack killed off in the pilot episode

Personal View

Wrecked: a nice show that will not become primetime number 1 watched show of the week but will do just fine when you want to see something funny in under 25 minutes.
