Description

The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was based on the Indiana Jones series of films. The series follows the Indiana Jones character (as a young boy and as a young man) as he was growing up and experiencing his early adventures, where he gets into trouble, learns life lessons and encounters various historical figures along the way. The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles was filmed on location all over the world ~ including England, Russia, Spain, Czechoslovakia, Kenya, France, India, China, Austria, Egypt, the United States, Morocco, Ireland, Italy, Africa, Turkey, Greece and Thailand.

It’s funny that Indiana Jones never bumped into any of his famous former acquaintances during his three globetrotting big screen adventures. In these final episodes from George Lucas’ ambitious edutainment TV series, Indy (Robert Sean Leonard) hobnobs with all manner of 20th-century icons and notables. Among his exploits: serving as translator at the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, helping Professor Robert Goddard with his liquid-fueled rocket experiments; jamming on tenor sax with Sidney Bechet; beating up bigots alongside his buddy Paul Robeson; busting bootleggers with Ernest Hemingway and classmate Elliot Ness, doing stuntwork for director John Ford; and trading quips with Alexander Wolcott, Dorothy Parker and the other wits of the Algonquin Round Table. If any names or events are unfamiliar, there’s no need to log ont o Wikipedia. Each episode is enhanced by an impressive array of handsomely produced biographical profiles and background docs that feature some A-list talent (Martin Scorsese appears in the featurette devoted to Ford). Enlightening, yes, but for those who prefer their Indy old school will thrill to the episode "Treasure of the Peacock’s Eye"--the most Raiders-like in this collection--in which a treasure map found on a dying man leads Indy on a search for a priceless gold statue once in the possession of Alexander the Great. Plus, it’s got pirates! The episode, "Masks of Evil" finds Indy against a modern-day (1918 to be exact) Vlad the Impaler. Best of all, Harrison Ford himself, appearing as the grown-up Indy, kicks off "Mystery of the Blues" on an exciting note, being relentlessly pursued for a Native-American artifact in his possession. Other episodes are amusing trifles. In "Scandal of 1920," a lovelorn Indy juggles the affections of three women (including a free-thinking critic portrayed by Anne Heche) while toiling backstage at a Broadway musical. Suffice to say, it’s more fun to watch Indy battle an army of the undead than it is to see him get romantic advice from George Gershwin and Irving Berlin, or, in the episode, "Hollywood Follies," tangle with temperamental director Eric von Stroheim. As with the previous two Young Indiana Jones sets, each feature-length program is comprised of two re-edited original broadcast episodes that chronologically carry on Indy’s extraordinary saga. With Indy back after a 19-year absence in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, this value-packed box set is an excellent way--especially for a new generation of fans--to keep up with the Joneses. --Donald Liebenson

They are learning about history in an entertaining way.

When you think in the production of a TV show like this you definately have to thank George Lucas and Rick McCallum for making a good quality product like this one.
Carlos Gomez Montoya
In my opinion this series is a good investment if you enjoy well done and entertaining family action movies.

The first two reviews which are very low in rankings are based on price, not the actual content of the show which is exceptional. If you want a great show that is very well done then this is a show for you and while you can wait and get it cheaper, price is never a judge of how good a show is, just on when you will see it.

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones, Volume Three - The Years of Change Whereas the first two volumes had most episodes relating the war years I found these episodes exciting & just plain fun. The overall quality is exceptional throughout the series. Was a bit reluctant to purchase as this volume was a bit more expensive but found it to be well worth the price. Hours of great entertainment, well researched & high quality historical documentaries I find it a great addition to an already great series.

Well, volume three is cut down to a more manageable 10 discs, of death-defying adventure in exotic locations, propitious meetings with interesting or soon-to-be famous people, and enough short informational features about historic people and events to satisfy anyone's History Channel jones. After watching all three sets and dimly recalling the series as it aired, though, I still have doubts about the wisdom of cobbling together two episodes to make one movie-length sequence. This results in some very odd pairings and a pronounced hiccup at about mid-point, where suddenly the story lurches off in another direction entirely. And omitting the poignant `bookend' character of `Old Indy' entirely?

At least this package included a guest appearance by Harrison Ford himself, as `somewhat middle-aged Indy', as well as some other nifty guest appearances; Anne Heche comes to mind almost at once (in the Scandal of 1920 episode). This series wraps up the last dying twitches of World War One (including an encounter with a still quite twitching Dracula - kind of an icky episode, that one. I wouldn't allow young children to watch it) and young Indy's attendance at the Paris Peace conference. Then, he returns home to pick up something of his old life again, scrounging summer jobs in Chicago, playing the blues, on Broadway and in Hollywood in the silent-movie era. As far as flamboyant and outsized characters went, Hollywood of that time would have been well worth a season of its own. As it is, Indy only scratches the surface, hanging out with young John Ford, Irving Thalberg and Erich von Stroheim.

I fell in love with the first volume of this DVD release - if only for the special features. (See my review under that title.) The re-edited stories on Volume one were confusing but the 10-½ hours (!) of NEW documentaries blew me away! George Lucas and Rick McCallum put their money where there mouth was (and Paramount went out on a limb by putting 10 DVDS in one set) and it shows. The documentaries are well researched and use the experts in the field.

I'm not a big War Years fan so Volume 2 was just okay for me but - again - high quality documentaries were attached.

Then came this volume. First, I headed to the documentaries - Jazz - Louis Armstrong - Ben Hecht - The Algonquin Round table. Each was better than the next with super footage in crisp quality prints and all the experts. Then I decided to watch the series episodes on the Blues and Hollywood. I'm as big music fan so I gave them a shot. WOW! Was I impressed! The Mystery of The Blues episode is loaded with great music - yes, full musical numbers. And each of the three women that Indy falls for is more gorgeous than the next. And how many films feature clarinetist Sidney Bechet as it's lead character for 90 minutes? (You even get a bit of Harrison Ford at beginning and end!). The last episode on early Hollywood was great too with lots of cool stunt work and an over-the-top performance by the actor playing eccentric Director Eric von Stroheim.

I was really sorry to hear that the series ended with this episode. I'm hooked!

All the volumes belong in every school and public library as a learning tool. Each of the 25-35 minute docs is a new learning tool for adults as well as older children. I certainly give this volume FIVE STARS! And a BIG thanks to Lucas, McCallum and Paramount!
