I am sorry, but I really didn't enjoy this episode very much. Maybe I had expected it to be more like the real Indiana Jones and Selleck would be more like Harrison Ford. I havenät seen this episode for years though, but I recall I didn't particularly liked it.
Wasn't it to much humour, too funny? Or am I wrong? I my memory deceived me?
But I do beleive though that Tom Selleck would have been an excellent Indiana Jones if he was to play that role like Spielberg wanted at first.

Really?

I love it! Certainly in my top Ten. You can't make a parody of something and be very serious, can you?

Hmm,

What else is in my Top ten??

This one is definately in my top 10 too. It definately an odd Magnum episode though. Very Campy.
I love the "Hero" voice that TM uses throughout the ep.

I think that as a spoof/homage to Raiders of Lost Ark, it is brilliant.

Trust me.

Tralfaz,

Isn't Operation: Silent Night one of your favorites too?

I'm a huge fan of Raiders, so this is easily one of my favorite episodes. I love how our introduction to Connie is via a dance contest- a clever nod to Marion Ravenwood's drinking game. And kudos to whoever came up with the "whip falls short of the gunman" joke. :lol:

It's also interesting that the spoof occurs for "real", instead of relying on previous devices like dreams or novels. This is similar to The Black Orchid, although with the added benefit of having everyone involved in the fun.

Here you can have the gun, I have the whip! :wink: :D
Hilarious!!!!!

I love the Magnum tantrum at the beginning. Will our boy really ever grow up? Still wondering how he lost the shoe?

So, I wonder if Magnum was playing the Raider's of the Lost ark atari video game. You remember that one?

I actually bought one from ebay a few years ago, and it's definitely something that would've annoyed Thomas. :D

Here's a vintage "how to" videothat explains how to complete it. The game was so convoluted it's not even funny. I wonder how many kids attempted to play it without a manual? :lol:

Wow that really takes me back. I played that on my Atari too. I had to buy a hint book to solve it. (pre-internet) A pity I threw all that stuff away.

Wow Sherm, that's a blast from the past! I never had that one in my Atari collection, but I remember a friend of mine did. Even then, it was a strange, confusing little game!

The Indy game that I will always fondly remember is the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom coin-op arcade game (1985). I used to play that all the time at the local arcade, along with Zaxxon, Xevious, Galaga, Tron, etc. It's a really fun, exciting game - whipping Thugee's, racing through mine shafts....

I miss those times, hanging out at the arcade. ;)

I still can't believe they never made a MPI pinball game.
