The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume 1

With the latest Indiana Jones movie about to released this midyear "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull", Lucasfilm have finally released "The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume 1" on DVD which features the young Indiana Jones in a variety of adventures from boy to teenager.

Some of the adventures are quite "blockbuster" in proportion, whereas other episodes are a little lacklustre as our young archaeologist to be encounters a variety of famous people of the time.

The first part of the series revolves around 10-year old Indiana as he travels around the world with his father Professor Henry Jones, his mother Anna and English tutor Miss Seymour. Much of the earlier episodes are quite light hearted and Indiana bumps into Howard Carter and Sigmund Freud which assist in fuelling his passion for archaeology.

The best part of this volume are the last two episodes which feature a teenage Indiana (Sean Patrick Flanery, Stargate SG-1) who enrols to fight in World War I which is where the series begins to shine. Unfortunately you need to wait until volume 2 and 3 to experience more Sean Patrick Flanery.

The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones Volume 1 is an extremely professional endeavour by George Lucas with most episodes filmed on location and in some aspects is almost like a 20th century history lesson, however with Indiana Jones added for spice.

The video and audio quality of the discs are phenomenal, even though it was made for television. However, what really sets this volume apart from most series on the market at the moment are the amazing special features.... and I truly mean amazing. Featuring almost everything you wanted to know about Indiana Jones and the history of the early 20th century.

A brilliant box set from start to finish!
