The Phantom Train of Doom was one of the best Young Indiana Jones. Taking place in World War I while Indy is in the Belgian Army, he and his fellow soldier take the wrong train (twice) while trying to meet up with their regiment, and Indy's sense of direction with a compass gets them lost even more. They meet up with a British troop of soldiers, and Indy's friend soldier stays with them to defend a fort. Indy meets a group of old commandos, but they prove to him that just becuase they're old doesn't mean anything. Their mission, which they trick Indy into joining, is to blow up a Nazi train, loaded with guns. After doing that, Indy and his friend meet up again and capture a german officer, escaping in a hot-air balloon. They crash land, and find the German Army on their tail. They figure that, while the British orders were to capture the officer, they are Belgium soldiers, and so their duty is to escape. Hopefully, Indy won't get in trouble for being late when he gets back to his regiment. This episode was well written, and we laughed a lot at some of the humurous dialog. Unfortunately, as it was a TV episode, it's special effects weren't spectacular (notable when they defend the fort), but as it wasn't an epic, like the movies, it didn't really matter.Was this review helpful?
