Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The made-for-TV Exile can be summed up as a kindler, gentler Lord of the Flies. Twenty somewhat sheltered American students are marooned on a Malaysian island. The "survival of the fittest" theme is shunted aside in a spirit of camaraderie and cooperation, as the kids pull together to survive. Corey Feldman heads the cast of young Hollywood "hunks" and "babes," each given ample opportunity to show off their physical attributes (within TV-censor limits). Exile premiered January 14, 1990, on -- of all places -- The Magical World of Disney.
