Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: No Time for Love Indeed

The Indiana Jones Drill Down’s latest installment is now available at the Nerd Lunch podcast. This time we dive into Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom. Sadly we were down a panel member thanks to a hurricane threat and that person happened to be the one who read the movie’s novelization. Luckily though, Pax and his family are safe.

For CT, Jeeg, Todd, and me – I’m pretty sure none of us would call this our favorite Indiana Jones story. But we aimed to break down the characters, plot, visuals, and behind the scenes elements with respect and a bit of a therapy session. We also discuss how this tale affects the overall Indy story, as it’s set before Raiders of the Lost Ark – something I didn’t realize 

Podcast Episode 247: Temple of Doom Drill Down is available on iTunes, Stitcher, and Libsyn as well as embedded below.
