So who's gettin' it?
Who's got good memories of it?
Who just goes "meh" regarding it?

$70 at Bestbuy and Amazon (for a week, then it goes to $100)- but it's only the first set of 3...the other two come out in Dec. and Jan., if I understand correctly.

Yeah, and there's this other set of three films that I have, you'd probably like them too. It's when Indy is older though- like 40.

Some guy named Speelberg directed 'em Chrisisall

I'm torn on this one. I love Indy, and I'm a completist... so I want to buy the set. On the other hand, I didn't actually enjoy the show that much, and this first set is mostly the little kid version of Indy, who I didn't like at all.

That, and they cut out the "old" Indy bookends to each episode. Sure, they were goofy, but like I said, I'm a completist...

Maybe I'll wait for volume 2. I liked the Sean Patrick Flannery Indy much more than the little kid.

Yeah I know what you mean. I did not like the little kid episodes at all. The only plus side is the episodes were split 50/50 for the first few.

The more I've looked at it the more I'm probably going to pass. The box set only has the first 7 episodes and is mostly the documentary stuff. And for the price I honestly expected it was the full series.

Kinda ditto what you said...I want these , and while I much preferred the Sean Patrick Flannery 'Indy' , I also watched and enjoyed the 'little kid Indy' , too . Just not as much .

I'm disappointed about the absence of the bookends...Many of them were shot in the town where I live , as were some segments of the Flannery episodes...I came along a street downtown , and there was Flannery in front of the cameras at one of the storefronts...It was a cool Indy moment for me...

Has anyone here seen his work in 'Powder' ? I think it was an underrated film that showcased his considerable acting skills...

I wonder if 'Flan-nery' is a Browncoat ?

You know Chris, it's getting to the stage where I see the title of the thread and I just know that it's from you. And you got a DA mention in there.
Transgenics RULE!!

As for Young Indy, I'm in the 'I Don't Know' category. Love the movies of course, but I only vaguely remember watching the pilot to this show.
After that I think I gave up.
Although to the best of my (dodgy) memory it was shown on a Saturday in the summer over here so I wouldn't have wanted to be stuck inside in front of the TV.

Maybe when you get it (or if someone gets it first) you could give us all a review??

Huh. I heard rumours about this (amongst other things), but couldn't quite make heads or tails of 'em....

I liked a couple of the Young Indy episodes, and I only really remember SPF's role. Every episode had its ups and downs: 'The Phantom Train of Doom' was a mite cheesy, but I still enjoyed it for obvious reasons. 'Trenches of Hell'....exciting and compelling, but way too derivative of 'The Great Escape'. 'Adventures in the Secret Service', now that one was good - but of course I lent it to my mom's Russian professor and never got it back. Mayhaps a jaunt over to Borders is in the orders....

I would love to get a set, but I think it's definitely way over-priced. I will be waiting to get one used on Amazon or E-bay.
I am saving my money for the hd dvd set of season one of BSG.

I only vaugely remember this show. I forgot there was a younger boy. I remeber the teen version and the older version of Indy. Not really interested and won't go on my list of xmas presents. That's reserved for Heroes, Eureka, and the SEBDM.

To me the best and really only good version of young Indy was River Pheonix's in the third installment, maybe that's why it was hard getting into the show.

Young Indy is my second favorite television series after Firefly... followed closely at third by Twin Peaks.

The show has such a cool balance of drama, humor, history, character, plot, etc. It's obvious that a lot of love was put into every episode of the show by Lucas, the writers and directors, the actors, and the rest of the crew.

I highly recommend this series to any Browncoat and/or lover of great television.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sooooooo was not. As I see it Lydecker only FELT he was responcible for what he called "his kids." But he never gave it a thought when he hurt and/or KILLED them. I never saw shades of grey, he was fully bad and only helped (so called) the super soldiers when it was in his best interest to get them back and USE them again.

Bennet did bad things overall, but it was to PROTECT Clair and his family. He went out of his way to see she was never hurt or found out and even SACRIFICED himself and his carreer to protect her. He never hurt her and wouldn't think about doing her any harm. Hell if she lost her powers and someone was ready to shoot her Bennet would jump in front of the bullet.

Bennet is trying to take down the Company so his family and others like Claire would never be hunted and experimented on again.

Lydecker, for the most part, is the company and wants his experiments back.

Bennet was a father who did whatever was in his power to protect and hide his family.

Lydecker just wanted his "family" of super soldiers back so he could control them and put them to work. See where I'm going here?

Oh, one last thing. Clairbear loves her dad, whatshername? Not so much.

Sorry to sound pissy Chrisisall, I really love hearing your insights and reading your posts and I do respect your opinions, but this is something I will always defend.

Lydecker's a scumbag in it for himself,

Bennet's a scumbag in it for his family.

Nuff said.


Oh, one other thing. "His kids" were running away from him.

Clair and family turned to dad to help hide them.

Okay- fine tuning here...
Lydecker had a heart- where Max was concerned..,
Bennet has a heart- where his family is concerned...,

Complicated villains that turn out to be allies in the fight for good is the connection I'm trying to make here; Bennet is ultimately more 'good' than Lydecker...
Is there agreement on this point?



Heroes fan too Chrisisall

This is a library DVD for me. The library in Regina is really good at getting full season DVD's of shows I'd like to watch in pristine quality, but not necessarily want to rent or buy. With this one, I want to rent it definitely, but I'm not going to buy something I vaguely remember.

I don't know Chris, I really can't get on the Lydecker bandwagon. I probably never will. I will agree Bennet is more "good", and I will agree, Heroes is da bomb.

I do like Max and her lover. They did become lovers didn't they? Been a while since I saw it.

That's the way I felt about Seaquest DSV, but I found it for $20 used, and wow, was I happy about it!

'They don't make 'em like they used to' was a phrase I thought I'd never use, but here I am.

Each era has it's totally cool stuff, and this show, kitchy as it is, is something I want to re-visit.

I felt the same way about SLIDERS seasons's 1 and 2. But when I picked up 3, I felt my heart break for watching what was once an imaginative series go down the tubes, even before Arturo died.

If there is one old sci-fi show that needs to be remade, it's SLIDERS, because the concept is too good to waste.
