IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adventures Of Young Indiana Jones Vol.2 (9 Disc Box Set)  [DVD] (DVD)
A worthy successor to the excellent Season 1. Youthful Indiana (Sean Patrick Flanery) is now caught up in the events of 1916-1918 - meeting key figures who, if not already famous, very soon will be. Amongst much else,he experiences the horrors of trench warfare and suffers personal loss in the upheavals that beset Ireland and Russia. Throughout there is excitement and humour (a foretaste of the films), not to mention episodes that are genuinely moving. The photography is magnificent. (Just one dud - "Espionage Escapades" is a misguided attempt at farce, embarrassingly overacted and full of silly accents.)
What places the Young Indiana boxed sets in a class of their own are the accompanying documentaries (here over twenty four of them). These are frequently real eye-openers, shedding considerable light on the events depicted and people involved. (A pity, though, about the music - often it is not needed and intrudes.)
An ambitious project, on the whole splendidly realised. It offers much to entertain, inform and stimulate.
