The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977)

Tried watching the first episode of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (1977) on DVD from Netflix. To be honest, I’m not sure I ever watched these when they were first on television. Like many old shows, HB/NDM was probably best left to some vague, youthful memory. The quality definitely did not hold up all these years later. Even giving a handicap for time period. But honestly, when I look back at 1977, there’s no handicap necessary. This was the year American television gave us All in the Family, MASH, Charlie’s Angels, Happy Days, Barney Miller, One Day at a Time, Soap, The Jeffersons, Lou Grant, Rhoda, Alice, The Waltons, The Rockford Files, Family, Roots, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and Maude! The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew just didn’t rank at the top of the heap. Too bad because those feathered haircuts sure were dreamy. LOL. Best to stick to the classic novels which still enthrall young readers today. 2 out of 5. Next.
