    Looks right at home on the CW. Plenty of books to work from, if they're doing that. Go high school kids!

    Growing up I used to read the Hardy Boys books and my sister used to read Nancy Drew books that my uncle used to buy for us, I don't think I'll be able to bring myself to watch this show as both my uncle and sister are no longer with us but I am smiling thinking of them after watching that trailer.

    Watched the recent film and quite enjoyed it.


    Just need a good Hardy Boys now.

    I used to love The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Mysteries back in the 70's. Theme music was great too. Thought the actress who played Nancy Drew was gorgeous.

    This first episode wasn't great at all. Reviews online comparing it to Riverdale. Some folks may like that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,212 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    I watched it
    Would prefer that any of the supernatural stuff was just part of the mystery and not real, but the way it's going, that would be hard to justify now.
    And why dig up a box with the dress from its hiding place, only to put it somewhere much more accessible to a curious kid/teen?

    Was that drugs in the car?

    Not sure what to make of it to be honest I give it a few episodes to find it's feet.


    I really liked Sophia Lillis portrayal of Nancy in the film earlier this year so that might be putting me off this ones Nancy.

    Ah yeah, that Sophia Lillis film was a weird one
    in the sense that the twist was in the title.

    Scott Wolf probably saw this series was similar to Veronica Mars so was hoping they would get someone Kristen Bell's height to play the part. :)

    Will give this one more episode. Reminds me of Riverdale more than Veronica Mars.
    If they went the case of the week route, as well as the overall arc it would be better. But as it stands they have 2 season long mysteries and nothing else.

    Watching this with bandana girl as she loved the books and tv show as a kid , but I am finding it very very boring , none of the fun and like ability of Veronica mars .

    Ended up watching the first season and liked it. May have to watch the finale again.
