Storyline

The now legendary, almost mythical character of Indiana Jones once had a childhood. Every episode starts out with the elderly man that he is in the 1990's getting into a specific situation where he has to tell a story from his past. The stories go back to when he was ten years old and on a world tour with his father, and to his late-teens when he fought in World War I. Written by Steve Richer <sricher@sympatico.ca>

Goofs

In close up shots of 9-year-old Henry Jr., you can clearly see that his actor, Corey Carrier, has deep brown eyes instead of Harrison Ford's trademark greenish-hazel eyes, or Sean Patrick Flannery's bright blue eyes. See more »

I love it
5 September 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

a war and the roots of a hero. that could be all. but the stories, the humor, the adventure spirit, the memories about Indiana in Spielberg versions does it a rare memorable series. not exactly for details but for the state of spirit, for the inspired manner to present a grow - up, for the small pieces and, sure, for the performance of Sean Patrick Flanery. he does an admirable job and that fact is the axis of the series charm. vulnerable, courageous, naive, wise, the ideal good guy and the discoveries about himself in a delicate manner. I admit, it is one of my favorite series. it is not easy for explain but could be useful the fact than, after two decades , the memories about it remains at high level.
