It's been a long time since I saw any episodes of this show, and finally, after much waiting, the third volume of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones is available on DVD. It's quite worth the wait, I must say! The episodes themselves are quite excellent and intriguing historically (I can see why the History Channel would be interested), but in addition to that are excellent documentaries included to enhance the viewing experience. See Indy tussle with Ernest Hemingway over a girl while in the French Foreign Legion, then see the documentary of Hemingway's life and another on the Legion. Watch Indy run afoul of Vlad the Impaler (Count Dracula), and then watch Dracula: Fact and Fiction to learn more. The whole set is like this, too.

Indy struggles through the rest of World War I and survives using cunning and the thirty-some languages he knows. Indy's life is changing, and the world is changing in serious ways. Indy's there as the League of Nations struggles to its feet. He crosses paths with Ho Chi Minh as he waits tables in Paris, hoping to gain some strength for Vietnam. Truly, we see that it's possible to live a life in such amazing times as to experience so much that is now legendary, and that's what The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones is all about. Watch it with your children. While it may not be entirely accurate (I'm told that Indiana Jones is actually a fictional character...), it may pique curiosity in the history of the world in the early twentieth century. You will see much of the world here as well: the series was shot in exotic locales around the world and really makes history come alive.
