Regarding your review of Hardy Boys Season 3:
I used to think that the ONLY thing that could be more DEGRADING for Joe Hardy actually being LAUGHED AT by Iola after being bound and gagged with a time-bomb and saved by her brain-dead brother at end of the all-time WORST While the Clock Ticked would be for Joe BOUND AND GAGGED BY ONE PRETTY GIRL, RESCUED BY ANOTHER. Here (Game Plan), they actually DID IT! Show may as well have ended, Joe's character FINISHED with that, should NEVER been season AT ALL. See my review of While the Clock Ticked with ALTERNATE PLOT where the Hardys are NOT saved--because THEY'RE doing the saving, of Callie (Iola's social standing, along with family farm, destroyed by Chet).
