Marion Ravenwood is one of the most annoying characters in all the films. But, I must also agree that the maharaja was an annoying little brat. I hate his smug attitude, but he was under the Black Sleep during the banquet scene, so I'll give him a free pass.

Since we've gained another film (granted some may not agree it falls in the same category as the others), as well as another novel and the pre-existing TV series, it may be more appropriate to discuss it in the General Indy Discussion table. Esp since the conversation seems to be expanding towards KOTCS and the EU anyway.
Marion 2.0 is definitely a shadow of her former self. But, for whatever reason, I find Vicky annoying in Young Indy. To be honest though, that ep is really not on my favourites list either. And I find much of the characters in the AotD novel, pretty thinly drawn, which to me, equals bad.
I have to agree, to take the best supporting character in all the films and drag her down to the lowest circles of hell inhabited by the likes of Willie Scott is the worst thing they could have done to a character!
Marion Ravenwood, 2nd edition. Even when Allen herself wasn't grinning, the material she was given still managed to be smirking at us.
I agree with this. She was completely unrecognisable from the first Marion we all loved in Raiders..such a shame that she was reduced to a grinning buffoon, after being such a tough woman in the first film.
But then again, it's easy to pick on the characters in KOCS, they were all pretty much ridiculous...
As for the first three films, I have always cringed a bit when the Maharajah speaks... he just irks me
Lucky he never had a lot to say.
