Young Indiana Jones 2.2 – Germany, 1916

Picking up from the previous episode’s cliffhanger ending, tonight’s installment is the big prison break episode. Both parts were originally shown in the US on ABC during The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles‘ truncated run on Monday nights in the fall of 1992. It’s really entertaining. Indy and another member of his Belgian company, who had been captured at the Somme, take the identities and uniforms of two French officers who didn’t survive the transportation behind the lines. Unfortunately for Indy, the man he’s pretending to be has made one too many escape attempts, so they ship him to a maximum security prison for “incorrigibles.” Fortunately, if there’s one man who can break out of any prison, it’s Indiana Jones. Unfortunately, he’s only seventeen at this point…

Among the guest cast this week, a famous French actor called Hervé Pauchon plays one of Indy’s fellow captives, Charles de Gaulle. Sean Pertwee plays a German officer, and we’ll see another member of the Pertwee family in the show a little while down the line. Julian Firth plays an imprisoned British officer, which is interesting because Firth has a completely different part in a couple of other episodes later on!
