SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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

The youthful adventures of the `Raiders of the Lost Ark' hero, as recalled by Indy at age 93. `Raiders' producer George Lucas created this clever and entertaining prequel to his movie series, in which young Indy met such figures as Teddy Roosevelt, Picasso, Mata Hari, T.E. Lawrence, Hemingway and Freud. The series never gained a wide audience, but four TV-movies aired on the Family Channel between 1994 and '96. Harrison Ford appeared as the adult Indy in a 1993 episode set in 1920s Chicago.

Critic Reviews for The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles: Season 1

All Critics (11)

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.

First, the good news: It's handsome, scenic and colorful, produced with a lavish flourish rare for television. Now, the bad news: It's a rompety, clompety bore.
