Agree with this! It's what makes ToD such a good entry in the series - because it dares to be a bit different.
With regards to excluding the supernatural, I'd like to see an Indy film where everyone THINKS the Macguffin is of a supernatural nature, only to have it turn out to be nothing of the sort! It'd never happen, but a guy can dream!
