EP. 405.1 — Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom

Paul & Amy crack the whip on 1984’s Harrison Ford prequel adventure Indiana Jones and the Temple Of Doom! They take a close look at the film’s depiction of Indian culture, ask if Kate Capshaw’s Willie is a worthy companion for Indy, and try to figure out what was happening in Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’s lives that inspired such a dark story. Plus: What was the first PG-13 film?
