So Bess and George are not cousins, but gay? Really, I have no words, I mean George was always tomboyish in the books, but definitely not gay.
Ned, maybe they took the Nick from Nickerson? And he's black, no problem with that, but he's white in the books,
If they were going to change things so drastically from the books, they could have put the Hardy boys into the show, and have Nancy hook up with Frank Hardy, it's always been a dream of mine anyways
