Dove Review

“The Hardy Boys – Season 1” is a gripping, who-done-it mystery that is fun to watch. It features two handsome young men as the Hardy Boys, Paul Popowich as Joe Hardy, and Colin K. Gray as Frank. There are 13 first-season episodes that feature mystery, adventure, and family devotion.

The series features episodes like “The Jazz Man”, in which an older gentleman disappears on his wedding day. He was a witness to a murder years before. Someone can identify him, so he goes into hiding. His fiancĂ©, knowing it isn’t like him to disappear, gets the Hardy Boys on the case.

Another episode, “No Dice”, features Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys’ partner, in solving a mystery. At an accident scene, Nancy finds some big dice and picks them up. It seems the dice hold a secret to a crime, and it is up to Nancy and the Hardy Boys to solve it.

These 13 episodes will keep the viewer’s attention as the Hardy Boys, and occasionally Nancy Drew, work at solving clues and catching culprits. If you are ready for action, then you are ready for “The Hardy Boys.” We are awarding this series our Dove Family-Approved Seal for ages 12-plus. If you want The Hardy Boys to join your family, watch this series. It helps to have them on your side!
