Storyline

Istanbul, September 1918. Posing as neutral Swedish journalist 'Nils Anderson', Indiana Jones is trying to convince Turkish general Mustafa Kemal to form a separate peace with the allies instead of the Germans. His mission becomes jeopardized when he learns there is a traitor, codenamed 'The Wolf' in his spy network. Afterwards, as part of a small team of special agents, Indy is sent to Transylvania to find out why the mysterious General Targo has raided a German P.O.W. camp. They soon found out the General had taken up impaling his enemies, just like Vlad Tepes used to in the 15th century. Written by Il Tesoro

Good feature demonstrating the different strengths of the series
11 November 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This latest episode sees yet more spying adventures for Young Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery). It was actually to be the last feature-length episode set in the midst of World War One (the following two deal with the ending and aftermath), and in a way you can see this was the probably the right time to start winding up his wartime adventures.

There is a sense of repetition to the plot, as Indy ends up in yet another exotic location (in this case Istanbul), trying to lure someone else onto the Allies' side (Turkish General Mustafa Kemal), while dealing with a traitor. Oh, he falls in love as well, with predictably tragic consequences. It is still skilfully produced and acted, and I liked the tilted camera shots that give a suitably creepy and disorienting feel to the smoky, harshly-lit streets of the city.

The second segment sees Indy dispatched to Transylvania, where he must stop the crazed General Targo (a wonderfully hammy Bob Peck), a descendant of Vlad the Impaler who is raising an army of the dead. Indy vs. Dracula is a novel idea, and with it's tongue-in-cheek mixing of humour and all-out body horror, it's the closest the series has come to evoking the spirit of the movies. There is no sensuality in the depiction of Dracula but there is still plenty of classic Gothic imagery including red skies, walking corpses and a generous helping of blood.

Another good quality episode, with something in here for everyone who likes Indiana Jones.
