This box-set sees Indy (again played by Sean Patrick Flannery) survive World War One, attempt a reconciliation with his father back home and become involved with gangsters, Broadway stage actors, and Hollywood film directors during his time at university.
The best episodes are "Masks of Evil", where Indy has a tragic love affair working in Istanbul and is then sent to Transylvania, in probably his first encounter with the supernatural, to tackle a crazed descendant of Vlad the Impaler who is raising an army of the dead. The first part is notable for it's complex realism, and the second part for it's hoary but still enjoyable Gothic horror imagery.
An intriguing episode is "Winds of Change" where Indy finds himself in France at the end of World War One, and faces the horrifying treatment of the Germans, who unfairly shoulder blame for the entire war as well as marginalised individuals like the Vietnamese whose fate is cruelly ignored in the process. This episode some good thoughts on the nature of war and evil, and an excellent recreation of the tortured President Woodrow Wilson by actor Josef Summer. Lloyd Owen also makes a welcome return as Indy's distant father.
"Mystery of the Blues" is bookended by 1950 segment with Harrison Ford playing an older Indy recounting his days at college playing the blues.Read more ›
This review is a combined one for all three seasons of Young Indiana.
I remembered watching some of these as a youth. They sparked a free-spirited ambition in a lot of boys and girls of the era I'm sure. When I saw them on offer at amazon I figured I'd snap them all up to re-live some of my past, being an Indie fan anyway.
Turns out, I'd probably not seen over 50% of the full series as I couldn't remember a lot of it.
Season one sees Indie (Henry Junior) as a boy, played by Cory Carrier, who never really seemed to carry on in acting. His father was talently played by Lloyd Owen who sounds the spit of Sean Connery's depiction in the earlier feature-films, which really helped with the feeling of continuity. Margaret Tyzack rounds out the key characters from my opinion, playing the part of Indie's tutor, Miss Seymour. I don't feel Indie's mother was much of a character and was incidental to most of the series.
During the season, you see him being the insolent youth you expect, perhaps rather big-headed and overly arrogant in his portrayal (perhaps reasons why Cory didn't go on to much more?). They travel from place to place, meeting various important and note-worthy people from that era.
As you enter season 2, Indie quickly ages into the dashing figure of Sean Patrick Flanery, and we see his portrayal through "The War Years" where he progresses up through the ranks in the Belgian Army with his pal Remy. Again, various note-worthy occasions, and the odd dash of archeology, but mostly it's his cheeky mis-adventures through the era that endears. I would say this is my favourite season and contains the episodes that I recalled from my youth.Read more ›
10 discs, one of them inter-active. 7 feature length adventures. 15+ hours of absorbing follow-up documentaries.
The result stuns, valuable insights given of turbulent, rapidly changing times:- The end of The Great War; The Paris Peace Conference (greedy victors unwittingly sowing seeds for World War II and a host of other major troubles); Prohibition; Colour Prejudice; the Births of Jazz, Musical Comedies and Films. Excellent documentaries tell of Hemingway, Al Capone, Eliot Ness, Paul Robeson, Louis Armstrong, Dracula (yes, Indy meets Vlad!). Most moving perhaps is the account of Harlem's Hellfighters - denied the recognition deserved for their war heroism. Amongst other illuminating features are those on the creation of modern Iraq and the background to Vietnam.
There are weaknesses. Indy is at times unconvincingly propelled into new situations; attempts at comedy do not always work; it is hard to believe in some of the younger depictions (especially of Hemingway), though others (Robeson, etc.) are splendid; Indy's repeatedly falling for the latest pretty face becomes tiresome. Overall, however, there is fun and much to please - not least Sean Patrick Flanery's spirited performance.
In one episode Harrison Ford himself appears, the older Indy reminiscing. In fact all three boxed sets skilfully pave the way for the films - as with the portrayal of Indy's uneasy relationship with his dad.
An ideal family present. Initially it will entertain in the spirit of the films, but let it not end there. The documentaries are an education in themselves, opening eyes and provoking thought.
