All of this talk about the new CBS Nancy Drew pilot, has made me nostalgic for the old TV Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. Sure it ticked me off when Nancy wound up taking a back seat to Parker Stevenson and Shawn Cassidy's Hardy Boys, but I loved the show anyway.
Here's a little bit to refresh your memory.
The new CBS show, called Drew, features Nancy all grown up and played by Sarah Shahi. Shahi is not the titian-haired girl from the books, but a grown-up detective in the LAPD. It's an interesting take on an old favorite no matter how far from River Heights it takes us. It's too soon to tell if the new show will work or not, but we still have memories of 70s Nancy.
