For Sean Patrick Flanery, Young Indiana Jones Never Grows Old

Sean Patrick Flanery

More than 15 years ago, Indiana Jones got a younger counterpart with the series The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. Young Indy was not only a non-stop source of historical adventures, he was also the break-out role for Sean Patrick Flanery. Since his years as Young Indy, for which he shot shows in more than 35 countries and saw a plethora of guest stars, Flanery has gone on to act in films like The Boondock Saints and shows, such as The Dead Zone (USA). Now, Young Indy's back on the scene with a ten-disc DVD set of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones: Volume Three: The Years of Change (ready for action today). As the DVD arrives, TVGuide.com reminisced with Flanery about his real-life Indy adventures in places from Rome to Prague (where Catherine Zeta-Jones made a cameo). We also mused about the paparazzi's ethics, both in Indy's time and ours, and got the back story on what he's up to next, in his post-Indy era. TVGuide.com: Young Indy was one o read more

In fact, the third and final collection ships on April 29th.Pre-order Young Indiana Jones - Vol. 3 on Amazon.comBut if it weren't for the upcoming return of this illustrious character, would the television series have ever seen the light of day? Maybe...but possibly not at this particular time, and probably not with such an in-depth production job on episodes and extras. Oh, these TV-DVDs have certainly been in the works since 2002. But then again, the new film has been planned for a very lon... read more

Young Indiana Jones, Old Variety Shows and Twin Freaks...awwww yeah!

Still feeling grateful folks. I can’t help it, it’s this month. Ya got Thanksgiving coming up, the weather’s finally changing (although this Philly humidity is total bullshizz) and the DVD coffers are filled to the rim with causes for celebration these days.And with this TV writers’ strike shaping up to suck long and big, having a few great DVDs to keep your flat-screen toasty is never a bad thing. Especially if the DVDs themselves are bad-ass weirdness like this week’s basket of goodies.First up, and huge props to the geniuses (geniui?) at Paramount Home Video, is Twin Peaks: The Definitive Gold Box Edition. Oh, holy Log Lady, is this set stellar! Not only package-wise, but also in what's going on inside the sleek box. 10 discs, including the pilot that was woefully absent from the original first-season set, and oodles of extras on the making of the show that confused so many of us between 1990 and ’91. Trust me, as soon as you see poor plastic-wrapped... read more

Premise: The youthful adventures of the `Raiders of the Lost Ark' hero, as recalled by Indy at age 93. `Raiders' producer George Lucas created this clever and entertaining prequel to his movie series, in which young Indy met such figures as Teddy Roosevelt, Picasso, Mata Hari, T.E. Lawrence, Hemingway and Freud. The series never gained a wide audience, but four TV-movies aired on the Family Channel between 1994 and '96. Harrison Ford appeared as the adult Indy in a 1993 episode set in 1920s Chicago.
