Editorial Reviews

It's the world's greatest teen super-sleuths to the rescue as Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys return in 22 hour-long episodes of The Hardy Boys Nancy Drew Mysteries Season Two! Based on the hugely popular books and starring teen idols Shaun Cassidy, Parker Stevenson and Pamela Sue Martin, these thrilling episodes follow the determined detectives on spooky mysteries in Dracula's Castle, at Mardi Gras in New Orleans and even in the Bermuda Triangle! Contributing to the fun and excitement are seven hit songs from Shaun Cassidy that made him a pop music sensation, including "That's Rock 'N Roll" and "Hey Deanie." Also, along for the chase in Season Two are such special guest stars as Casey Kasem, Rick Springfield, Melanie Griffith and Valerie Bertinelli. Follow the clues to fantastic music and adventures with TV's most famous teenage detectives!

I'm VERY excited that we're finally going to see another season make it to DVD. However, I do have a minor complaint:

Season TWO consists of "22 episodes" and three are "two-part" episodes (making the real "whole episode" count "19"). Here is a list of the "season two" episodes:

The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula (Part 1) - 09/11/77
The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula (Part 2) - 09/18/77
The Mystery of King Tut's Tomb 09/25/77
The Mystery of the Hollywood Phantom (Part 1) - 10/02/77
The Mystery of the Hollywood Phantom (Part 2) - 10/09/77
The Mystery of the African Safari - 10/16/77
The Creatures Who Came From Sunday - 10/30/77
The Strange Fate of Flight 608 - 11/06/77
Acapulco Spies - 11/13/77
Nancy Drew's Love Match - 01/20/77
The Silent Scream - 11/27/77
Will the Real Santa Claus..? - 12/18/77
The Lady on Thursday at Ten - 01/01/78
Oh Say Can You Sing - 01/08/78
The House on Possessed Hill - 02/22/78
Sole Survivor - 01/29/78
Voodoo Doll (Part 1) - 02/12/78
Voodoo Doll (Part 2) - 02/19/78
Mystery Of The Avalanche Express - 12/26/78
Death Surf - 03/12/78
Arson and Old Lace - 03/31/78
The Campus Terror - 05/06/78

"Season Three" consists of only "10 episodes" and two are "two parts" (which basically makes it an "8 episode" season). I think that it would have made more sense to release a "season two AND season three" combo box set. I realize that it would have added to the cost, but then we may end up having to wait a couple more years for the final "10" ("8") episodes. Let's hope not!!

This series is standard "Glen Larson" material and GREAT nostalgia entertainment! The chemistry of the cast helps to drive the series and make it a light hearted, fun, and quite enjoyable viewing experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun series March 8, 2007

Hate to sound like a demented fan - but I can't wait! This is the season that features the cross-over episodes of Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet Dracula/ Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew Meet the Hollywood Phantom. Plus I hope this has the "rare" Christmas ep of Nancy Drew - Will the Real Santa Claus... As mentioned, the major disappointment comes with Pamela Sue Martin's departure. In an interview she said she didn't want to turn into the girl that said - you boys solve the mystery while I go call the police. And sure enough that's what happened to the new Nancy. If anybody recalls - the first episode of Janet Louise Johnson as Nancy was one of the most idiotic episodes ever. First, her Nancy has been missing for months, kidnapped and held captive by an old geezer. That Nancy couldn't get out of that one herself was so preposterous. Then - to add further insult to injury, the Hardy Boys have to come rescue her and all she does the entire time is whine. Pamela's version of Nancy would've gotten out long before the Hardy Boys got there. Watch the Dracula and Phantom episodes and see how well she holds her own against the boys!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! Season Two is here! March 1, 2007
This is a terrific season for HB/ND fans, with some terrific guest stars such as Dennis Weaver, Jaclyn Smith, Rick Springfield, and Maureen McCormick. The only disappointment is Pamela Sue Martin's midseason departure as Nancy Drew. After two years, fans are finally getting this terrific season DVD box set.

There are many DVD sets in my collection and not one of them was as anticipated as this one. I'm pleased to say that Season Two of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries does not disappoint.

To put Season Two in perspective I must first say a few words about Season One. Released on DVD in March 2005, the first season episodes beautifully capture the essence of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew novels that have been a staple in children's literature since the 1920's. Frank, Joe, and Nancy helped solve mysteries around their hometowns, often assisting their fathers on important cases. In Season One the guys and Nancy are just getting started with their crime solving, sometimes making mistakes here and there. This could be debated but Nancy made far fewer mistakes than the boys ever did! In both seasons Nancy is a young woman who mostly works alone and gets the job done right the first time. Pamela Sue Martin's portrayal of Nancy was perfect. No one else could ever BE Nancy, then or now.

Nearing the end of Season One a phenomenon helped to transform this great children's series into "must-see-TV" for teens and pre-teens everywhere: The Brothers Hardy - wonderfully portrayed by Parker Stevenson and super singer Shaun Cassidy - became teen idols. And so began Season Two...

Though it has been done in print many times since, the first episode on this Season Two set has the characters of Frank, Joe, and Nancy meeting for the first time ever. The brothers are hardly ever home this season, though they do still assist their dad on occasion. The second season takes the guys to exotic lands and the danger quotient is slightly increased over the previous year. If you're a fan of The Hardy Boys Casefiles (novels written in the late '80's) this season is for you!

3.0 out of 5 stars look out world, here come the Hardy boys . . . January 3, 2010
In the first season, The Hardy Boys Mysteries and Nancy Drew Mysteries split time equally, alternating episodes each week. In second season, the series underwent a major change, placing the emphasis on the Hardy Boys, and making Nancy Drew secondary. Of the 22 episodes, only three were stand alone Nancy Drew Mysteries. Pamela Sue Martin also appeared as Nancy Drew, in two, two-part Hardy Boy adventures. Martin, left the series with several episodes remaining, resulting in Janet Louise Johnson being cast as a replacement. Johnson, appeared as Nancy Drew, in four additional episodes.

With more backing from the studio, The Hardy Boys Mysteries changed in several ways. The writing, while still not great, is improved. Many of the clichés remained, but the series featured colorful international settings outside of Bayport, Massachusetts, that created possibilities for the stories. Hollywood, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Hawaii, Hong Kong, Austria, Nassau, Egypt, and Africa, are some of the scenic spots on the Hardy boys' itinerary . The handsome brothers, Joe (Shaun Cassidy) and Frank (Parker Stevenson), while still prone to goofy foulups, display a higher level of maturity and competence. Still mostly pretty boy detectives, who usually run from trouble, at least the Hardy boys are now independent, and not constantly apologizing like schoolboys in the principal's office after messing up. While more lovers than fighters, the Hardy's are able to take on some physical tasks, without looking completely ridiculous.

With most of the action set outside of Bayport, first season regulars Aunt Gertrude (Edith Alwater), and Callie (Lisa Eilbacher) were written out of season two.
