How can a true Indiana Jones fan think that the "Young Indinana Jones and the...." books were BETTER than "Young Indiana Jones Chronicles"?!?! A shoe that HAD Harrison "Quit Whining About This" Ford in it? Where the YIJAT... books were mostly rips of the LC River Pheonix segment, with a whole buncha' wannnabe shit thrown in (OK I concede maybe SIX of FIFTEEN were pretty good), the YIJC actually took time to develop the character - much less finding Sean Patrick Flanery, a true AAACHTOR!!! to play him! Sean Patrick Flanery has much stronger dramatic abilities than even Ford. Take a closer look at the certain episodes (The Congo, Russia, Verdun, Travels With Father) and you'll see what I mean. The greatest failure of the books was pretending that a thirteen year old kid could POSSIBLY have that much of an interest in archeology. That Sean Patrick Flanery's adventures begin with Indy and his cousin hitchiking to Mexico looking for bordellos is a much more fascinating concept than anything that came about in those books!
