I recently finished watching Volume 1 of the "Young Indiana Jones" DVD set, and was extremely impressed. I saw all of the episodes when they were originally aired on US TV in 1992/1993, and had forgotten how good some of them were.
* The picture quality/sound on all of these episodes is, overall, superb! Much, much better than the original TV airing and the VHS films from the late 1990's. I was amazed at how much they cleaned the picture up. I remember starting to watch "Travels with Father" on a VHS tape back in the mid 1990's, and not being able to finish watching it because the picture quality was so poor. In watching it now on DVD, it's one of my favorite episodes.
* This is the first time I've seen all of the episodes at once and in order, which is probably the way they were meant to be seen.
* I was surprised that I liked the Correy Carrier episodes as much as I did. I never really cared for these when they first aired, but for some reason I really like them now. It was funny how little Indy kept getting into trouble, and I was especially amused at how he got the better of the would-be horse thief in the China episode.
* I miss the YIJC theme song in the beginning of the episodes (since it's not in any of the tele-films, at least not in it's entirety), but it's cool that they include it on the DVD menu.
* I don't miss the Old Indy (George Hall) bookends. Though it would be interesting to see them on a future DVD set (even though they wouldn't make much sense if taken out of context), they are not necessary and do interrupt the "flow" of the story. They did raise a lot of good questions, though, like: who did Indy marry, and how did he get the eyepatch?
* The only problem I have with these shows are the linking sequences. Most of them are unecessary and jarring, since it was obvious they were filmed at different times. I guess Lucas felt they should be there to connect the various episodes, but they weren't really needed.
* I have to say that I'm glad this show was released on DVD at all - I wanted this on DVD for years, and thought it would never come out. In fact, if there were no new Indiana Jones film coming out next year, I have a strong feeling we would still be waiting for these DVD's, probably indefinitely.
* Lastly, I have to say that, at the time of it's original airing, I thought that "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" was the best TV drama of all time up to that point, and still think so.
