The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles: Season 1 (1992)
Critic Consensus: The adventures of Young Indiana Jones are realized with impressive production design in this ambitious series, but George Lucas' gambit to use his creation as a tour guide through history proves more didactic than informative.

Tv Season Info
Young Indiana could end up restoring the good name of two-fisted, swashbuckling, prime-time pulp.
Boring... The writing largely suffers in its attempts to entertain and educate.
Young Indiana Jones is a marvelous show. The stories are engrossing, the characters well-drawn and played, and the production values are extraordinarily lush for a weekly program.
Each episode tries to shoehorn in bold a history and an ethics lesson with the period dress and picturesque ports of call. The result, though visually rich, is like a fuddy-duddy theme-park ride.
The narrative of this series is one of multiple riches. It's a boy's coming-of-age story, a hero quest, a travelogue, a class in multiculturalism, and a simple, solid action-adventure serial all rolled into one sprawling, seat-of-the-pants yarn.
