I haven’t spoken much about the new Nancy Drew TV show… but I thought to bring it up for some discussion! I have watched the first three episodes and will watch the fourth tonight. (Just so you all know – we at HeR Interactive had no part in the making or consulting of the CW’s Nancy Drew TV show.) Here’s my personal recommendation: if you are under the age of 16, I would seek your parents permission to watch the show. If you are a parent of a minor who is interested, please read the reviews for the show, do a little research and learn about the content that is in the series. If you are a parent, I suggest watching an episode first before deciding to let your children view it. The show has adult content and is rated TV14 for this, among other things.
That being said, the show also has scary moments, and I have a suspicion that the ghosts are “real” in this world. Here is my brief review of the show, as a long-term Nancy Drew fan who has read the books and has seen all the old movies and shows: I’m excited for a new Nancy Drew show. I’m excited for the scariness and the mystery. I’m disappointed about the adult content, as “my Nancy” doesn’t need this to solve a great mystery.
That’s a great point, too. “My Nancy” is a regularly used term these days, and because Nancy has been transformed so many times across the decades, we all have different preferences to who she is and what she does. And that’s ok to have your preferred Nancy, and other people to have different Nancys.
Ok, so if you HAD to modernize Nancy Drew into 2019, what would this Nancy keep from her past, and what would you give Nancy? Example: I would have Nancy keep her vintage fashion style, her vintage car, her kindness, curiosity and helpfulness to people. To modernize her, I would give her a cell phone, laptop, and give her coffee. LOL
How would YOU modernize Nancy?
