Re: The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

He is featured a lot in the early episodes with the younger Indy, and the actor playing the younger version of Henry Sr. does a pretty good Connery impression while not coming off like a parody. He's also something of (mostly-offscreen) presence in the later episodes, as Indy was still a minor when he ran away from home to enlist in WWI.

Re: The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

I just watched the Transylvania episode on Netflix and that certainly seemed paranormal to me. People were floating and freezing and catching on fire and the "vampire" fell five stories to the ground and survived.

Yep, I think that was the one episode of the show that had something clearly supernatural.

I enjoyed the series, but I never felt I was watching the early adventures of Ford's character. The various guest actors were a pleasant surprise (the aforementioned Liz Hurley, Jon Pertwee, Daniel Craig, Terry Jones, Christopher Lee, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Paul Freeman - though not as Belloq).

I recently rewatched the DVDs on my HD screen, and the effects didn't great.The digital ones were pretty obviously standard res.

Which fits the premise I mentioned above, that Ford's character was a fictionalized version of the "real" Indiana Jones played by Carrier and Flanery. Sort of like how that Real Ghostbusters episode explained away the movie as an in-universe fictionalization of the actual origin of the Ghostbusters, accounting for the differences between the movie and the show.

Re: The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles

As a teenager at the time I frankly found most of the show to be pretty dull. I certainly loved the idea of seeing Indy in the middle of real historical events, but the stories just dragged way too much. It felt like the show was more interested in simply giving dry history lessons than in making these events really come alive in a compelling way.

Which is a shame, because Sean Patrick Flanery was a just about perfect young Indy. And was pretty convincing and fun to watch whenever he did get something cool to do.
