Summary of "Volume 1: The Early Years - Absolutely Amazing!":
This set is absolutely amazing. I knew it would be packed with material, but I expected some of it to be fluff pieces - I was wrong. Every documentary is awesome, giving you historical insight into the people and events in the episodes. I started to view the episodes as a warm-up for the featurettes, and considering I enjoyed the shows, I think it speaks volumes on the quality of the extras. There are 38 documentaries, and one lecture, which total nearly 17 and a half hours of material, nearly twice that of the episodes themselves. It was a long wait, but wow, it was worth it.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to access the DVD-ROM material on the set, even after manually trying to access it on the disc, and looking in every folder available. It just didn't want to run on my Mac, which is apparently supported according to the material on the DVD. It's a shame, because it was the only flaw I could find with the bonus material.

Young Indiana Jones may not have been the best show ever created, but this DVD set is the most thorough I've seen. The documentaries enhance the episodes in a way I haven't seen done before, and this is one of the most impressive sets in my vast collection. I strongly recommend Young Indy, even though the episodes are edited from their original airings; the bonus material is that good. (read entire review)
