(Initial, and final, Impression) For someone who "discovered" the school library in sixth grade and then read all the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys novels they had in that same year, I was hoping for more. The writing for this series is bad. Aging up Nancy and her crew may have opened the door for the gratuitous sexual content but there was no reciprocal mature dialogue or adult social dynamics in this series. The interactions are juvenile. Just a big disappointment. Because I don't hold out hope that this series will get any better than this premiere, I'm giving it a 3 (bad) out of 10 and abandoning the series. [Mystery]

Yeah, this is a CW show, alright. Honestly, there are so many problems, none of them are worth bothering yourself with to mention, and would probably offend some people who'd pull the "it's an adaptation, it doesn't have to be exactly like the books" card if you do. But I'll willingly put myself in that position so you don't have to. This show should've never been "based on" the Nancy Drew novel series. It's an absolute disgrace. They made so many changes and added so much new material that doesn't fit or feel right within the Nancy Drew world or universe, it's not even funny. It is nothing like what it is supposedly based on, other than the obvious: the characters and their names, except for calling Ned Nickerson, Nick, and the mystery/female teenager-sleuth aspect. And that's only two. The intricate details of them and everything else are either not there or configured way differently. Sure, this is an adaptation. So what if that's the case? Right? Well, for one, it doesn't feel like what you'd expect from an adaptation of the Nancy Drew novels, AT ALL. You'd think, at the very least, any adaptation should feel like what it is supposedly "based on", right? Granted, that could be because it's on The CW, which is dumb, by the way. It was bound to turn out this way in some way, shape, or form. But, hey! You probably won't have to worry about it getting canceled any time soon, so there's that. The supernatural aspect is ridiculous and unneeded. Not to mention, wasn't very Nancy Drew-like, not even remotely, and was more of a disgrace than everything else that was a problem, but the writers clearly must've felt differently about that. Point is, and more concisely, this isn't Nancy Drew. It's a facade version of it that is something else, entirely, and should've been just that, another show, one that's the same as this one, just not based on the Nancy Drew novel series. That would've been much more preferable for many, I'm sure, and very simple to have done, too. If you can look past the fact that it's "based on" the Nancy Drew novel series and see it as JUST a show, it's enjoyable and entertaining, from The CW's standards. I didn't like it THAT much, and that's not including the embarrassing fact that I was confused for most of its entirety, barely managing to follow along, but as it was nearing the end (of its first season), I got somewhat into it. It's a decent enough show if you can free yourself from the expectations of it being like what it is based on because it won't stop at making those expectations crumble, which will then turn into fuel that will make you hate it more and more, it just isn't Nancy Drew, and it never should've been.

Why did it have to turn supernatural...? The Nancy Drew names bared the potential of a good detective story... Instead we got a poorly written ghost story!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
