As HI’s current librarian it’s pretty nice to check in on the collection every once and a while, you never know what you are going to find! Maybe, oh a collection of … “The Hardy Boys Nancy Drew Mysteries TV DVD Seasons”?! Yes, HI is quite thorough in their collecting!
I did a little sleuthing on the history of the television series (which was way before my time), and I found out that the Hardy Boys TV show ran primetime on ABC for three seasons! I watched a couple episodes on my breaks and heh, they were quite fun!
From the script (lots of “gosh” and “gee”) and sound effects to the wavy hairstyles and plaid suits, the TV series has an innate “70’s feel”.
I am also a huge fan of James Bond (I’ve seen each movie at least 3 times), and the the music in the TV series kind of reminded me of the scores used in some of the 1970’s JB movies, like Live and Let Die (listen to the music in the background, I love it!) It really has some heavy disco influences: violins, brass horns, retro guitar…
Anyways, for all the Hardy Boys (or Shaun Cassidy/Parker Stevenson) fans out there, I’m sure that you can find a copy or two of the DVD seasons in your local public library, or on Amazon.
BTW, you can check out the TV show opening here! See what I’m talking about? :P
