Storyline

Indiana Jones is late for a Broadway show and begins to recount his own experiences working backstage at George White's Scandals in 1920 to his disgruntled female cabdriver. Indy managed to woo no less than three girls in as many days: singer Peggy, poet Kate and socialite Gloria. Arriving at the theater, Old Indy has no time to finish his account to the cabbie and instead picks up the story in the course of lecturing a theatre critic about the hardships of the little people struggling to put on their show. Written by The TV Archeaologist

Scandals of Indy
31 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I recently watched the full series again, and while the various episodes are of varying quality, this was the only one which made me want to review it. Unfortunately not because of its sterling qualities, but because - as someone comments during the course of the episode - its trash.

As the blurb reads, in this episode, Indy woos three ladies. By now, any viewer of the series will have realized that Indy is a hopeless womanizer - wooing and discarding (or being discarded) ladies in every episode. This is not even the first episode where he has more than one leading lady. Nor is it the first one where he comes off as being a little callow and selfish.

Unfortunately, it is the first one where he comes off as having almost no redeeming qualities whatsoever. While the introduction is innocent enough, the Indy we are presented with here is a selfish, dishonest, self-absorbed liar - a far cry from the character established in other episodes. We are supposed to laugh at the antics in the episode - and that might have worked if it had been a short 45 minute episode - but stretched out over 90 minutes, it becomes hard to laugh when the protagonist is so unlikeable.

It's a pity, because the period drama itself is good. Tin Pan Alley and early Broadway are shown here in all its glory, and the three leading ladies are excellent (particularly Anne Heche). Unfortunately, it can't make up for the hopeless central plot that the episode is saddled with.
