The overall effect of these handsome, feature-length stories, all shot on glorious location, is of a certain audacity--Lucas having the nerve to name-drop all over the place and situate Jones with some of the greatest achievers in world culture. But each episode is nothing less than spectacularly educational as well as entertaining. Scripts are carefully written to reflect what these famous individuals actually contributed to mankind, and to give a sense of what their personalities were like. The last three shows in Volume One find Jones at age 20 (played by Sean Patrick Flanery), now more or less on his own as he gets into various scrapes in Mexico (where he rides with Pancho Villa) and Ireland (where he meets William Butler Yeats). There is so much to glean from these stories, but even more to bask in on the sets many special features, which include multiple, exquisitely produced documentaries about the historical figures, political and artistic movements, and crucial events that play into this series. This is a great set for kids (probably beginning at the 6th grade level) and adults as well, preferably to watch together. --Tom Keogh
Loved this...the history, the plots, the backdrops, the costumes. The best came last, and we were sorry it ended. But we'll probably watch it over and over. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Shelley J. Glodowski

I bought this series after learning that a friend of mine had enjoyed them as they aired. I remember thinking, "why bother," without Harrison Ford? Read morePublished 6 months ago by vettrek
Theses "adventures" are horrible. Uninspired and insipid. It's as if Lucas went through a Jar Jar Binks meltdown across all of the projects he had ever helped make - trying... Read morePublished 6 months ago by F. Limner

I purchased the set from TVDVD.com and while they say that the episodes are 'unedited as they appeared on TV' - they're wrong. They've taped the very same versions found on these releases (without George Hall and with the terrible editing decisions) as they appeared on the USA network (as... Read More

Considering i'm posting this late, i'm not sure if you will get this, but i will answer it anyway.
He would enjoy The Young Indiana Jones Vol. 1 because it is much more light hearted and age appropriate. Vol. 2 deals with WW1, so there are alot of battles, gunfire, and death so i would... Read More

|Young Indy series vs. Indy movies||
I also prefer the series because of the educational aspects. I find it more interesting. I love history, and this presents the events in a personalized way.
