I used to love watching these when they came out on VHS, but because they weren't all released I hated to feel 'disconnected' from the main timeline watching them. This is going to be cool, especially with historical docs. My favorite was Trenches of Hell.

The only one I've seen (and it seems to be the only one everybody owns) was "legend of the Peacocks eye".


I didn't like it when I first saw it 10 years ago. The opening WW1 trench sequence was the only thing worth watching in my opinion.
Maybe a second viewing is in order, although I won't be rushing to watch it.
From watching the previews to other episodes I'm only interested in watching the Transylvania one.

Legend of the Peacocks Eye came with the VHS set, that's why I have it.  It was a looong time ago when I watched it.  I remember thinking it was ok.

That seems to be the reason that it is the only episode anybody owns.

I thought they would mix it up with each VHS box set.

I liked Peacock's Eye when I first saw it because I felt it was the closest they came to the original Indy style, but afterward I despised it for the cheesiness. Trenches of Hell is the most WWI of all of them, if you know what I mean. Trenches galore 8) Phantom Train of Doom is also cool, it takes place in Africa and also has a WWI-related plot. Actually they all kind of do, but in reference to those I mean directly, as in war movie territory.
