Love's Sweet Song - it connects Spring Break Adventure and sets up Indy in WWI
Trenches of Hell - I know this sequence (and the unmade part III) were important to George. It also serves as a contrast to Hawkmen in some way
Oganga, Giver and Taker of Life - An adventure (that starts fun and turns serious) with lots of life lessons for Indy.
Updated in order:
-My First Adventure
-Travels with Father
-Spring Break Adventure
-Love's Sweet Song
-Trenches of Hell
-Oganga, Giver and Taker of Life
-Attack of the Hawkmen
-Daredevils of the Desert
-Masks of Evil
-Treasure of the Peacock's Eye
-Winds of Change
-Mystery of the Blues
And maybe add the first half of Demons of Deception (Verdun). Of course, I like something about all of them.
The ones I picked I did because they contain a good bulk of the story, are episodes that expand on Indy's background, and would I feel be the most accessible to new watchers.
