Okay, so I dropped off with my Nancy posts for a bit. In that time I’ve gone from saying “this show is the most ridiculous thing. The real Nancy Drew would be ashamed!” to being like “WHEN IS THE NEXT EPISODE!” In case you’re wondering, it’s still ridiculous. And, unless you are a Winchester, I… Continue reading Nancy Drew…I Might Love It
Remember the end of summer ritual where you kick over a bucket of water and if BLOOD spills out you’re going to die? Remember when I said to get out of a town with a ritual like that because there is definitely going to be something weirder and more sinister going on? Enter the Velvet… Continue reading The Mystery of Blackwood Lodge
There is no longer any question if ghosts are real. If you’d been holding on to the slim hope that the hauntings were some elaborate setup by a clever murder/ real-estate investor you would have been wrong. I was wrong. Ghost possession is not only real in Horseshoe Bay it’s also doing splendidly. Mrs. Hudson’s… Continue reading The Case of the Wayward Spirit
Nancy Drew, episode four was about a 180 from the last episode. There were no fun clues or puzzles. No riddles where the key to the answer was a book ISBN number. Instead, this episode was all about ghosts (yes there is now more than one) and a funeral. Two ghosts, and a Funeral… The… Continue reading The Haunted Ring
I have to admit something… This episode sort of pulled me in. Here I am snarkily analyzing all the brooding drama and then they go and pull a Nancy Drew clue hunt that ticked all the right boxes leaving me, almost, gleeful. We find out that Ned did indeed have a relationship with the deceased… Continue reading Nancy Drew Episode Three
Episode two The Secret of the Old Morgue, picked up right where we left off with Nancy in the attic wondering if her parents had something to do with the “dead” part of Dead Lucy. From there it’s back to work where she’s on her phone looking at mugshot photos of Ned she obtained by… Continue reading Nancy Drew Episode Two
Recap of the first episode of the CW’s Nancy Drew and how it compares to the books.
Most writers have a book or book series that was hugely influential to them in their younger years and I’m no exception. For me it was Nancy Drew. Not the paperback ones that were already slightly out of date when I was in sixth grade, but the old yellow ones. I l loved them and… Continue reading Nancy Drew
Lately I have been on a Nancy Drew binge. I started reading one I found in the library and then I couldn’t stop. Nancy and I have been reading mates since I was very young. In the small town I grew up in the middle school and high school shared a building (opposite wings) and it… Continue reading Nancy Drew
It’s true, it’s one of the hundreds of things I learned from Nancy Drew. Nancy also taught me to call a regular purse a “hand bag” which, I think, sounds way fancier and a purse with no straps a “clutch”. I also learned how to signal SOS with a flash light and the importance of… Continue reading Every Fine Lady Needs A Change Purse.
