Not the same thing though, not the same thing in the least. I mean, yikes!
My issues with this “in name only” adaptation are entirely different from, say, people being upset that Nick is African American. Heck, if Nancy Drew herself was African American (yes, black people can be red headed) and she was still an ace detective solving non-supernatural murders with a respected father and long-dead mom, it would be a far more faithful adaptation than this live-action Scooby Doo show.
In this show, Nancy is a detective in name only. What she really is is a Ghost Whisperer. Nobody watching “Random Girl & Friends Solves Ghost Crimes” would connect it to Nancy Drew. They’d probably think it was a Riverdale spin off.
