The countries that you have heard about from world history books or world`s mystery books show up with exciting adventures and a piece of world histoies just melted in each episode so smoothly.
Besides,I don`t know how they did it but the picture quality has been done nicely. Furthermore, I quite enjoyed special features of each disc.
It`s not only interesting but also educational.
The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones seems a bit expensive but if you like adventure, history or world`s mystery, I gotta tell ya whatever it costs it`s worthy.
First, when the series was originally broadcast each episode was introduced, sometimes had inserted narratives, and had an epilogue all performed by a very old Indiana played by George Hall. It was very charming and often provided a context for the stories that made them more meaningful or filled in the blanks. What a shame they aren't included. I hope I can find the missing scenes somewhere else so I can attempt to recreate the package myself.
Second, they were originally broadcast in a sequence that made sense to the old Indiana doing the story telling, not chronologically as the discs are organized. By jumping around in time with 10 year old Indy and then late teen Indy, the viewer didn't end up feeling in the early episodes so much like this was a kid's show - appropriately, the young Indy episodes are more childlike, but by putting them all together it's not as compelling to the viewer to watch all the episodes as I originally found when you didn't know what age of Indy you would get next.
Still, what a great series to have available after all these years. The bonus items sound interesting but I haven't viewed any of them yet. I recommend this series to anyone. And when another version is brought out with the missing old Indy parts and in the right order I'll buy that one, too!
I expected the series to revolve around him becoming an archaeologist, but it wasn't that at all. It was more of his life growing up and meeting people/legends who defined our history. A lot of the series then became about WWI and his role, which was not expected. A couple of episodes were almost ridiculous and pointless to his life and the series, but overall it was produced very well. The clothing, vehicles, weapons, ships all look authentic for the time period. The first season was a little confusing at times when the actors changed for spots during some episodes (Indy was 6 yrs old in the beginning of an episode, and then was played by a 10-yr old boy later in the same episode). It improved though, especially when Sean Patrick Flannery starred.
It's a very interesting series and definitely worth the purchase if you're interested in the Indiana Jones character, or want something worth watching on TV. It's a shame the show was canceled, especially since George Lucas had drafted up enough scripts for 70+ episodes to further detail his entire life.
One of the best weekends I ever spent with my son was when it downpoured all weekend but the owner of the cottage had a huge library of movies based on historical events, Lawrence of Arabia, Patton, Dr Zhivago etc. Watching this is like that experience all over....
Thanks for your request for info.

Really great especially all of the information behind the historic characters and events in the movies.Published 14 months ago by D. M. Renna
It filled in some of the blanks from the movies. Although Correy Carrier did ok he is not really the Indy type. Sean Patrick Flannery very good!Published on Nov. 15 2013 by Michael Michael
I enjoyed the tv show when it was on, and thought of it when watching one of the Indiana Jones movies with my grandson. Got this for him for his birthday.Published on Oct. 15 2013 by annie51
