Nancy Drew Media: Mysteries Explained

Recommended Posts


A 22 episode season isn't a good idea for a show like this. That means a LOT of filler episodes and a lot of stretching of storylines to get to 22 episodes. A mystery show like this should be condensed for a cleaner story. 16 episodes would have been just fine, but 22 episodes is going to drag. 

See what happened to Riverdale the moment they expanded to 22 episodes for season 2. The mystery portion of the show made the show drag and made the stories messy and make little sense. And I see Nancy Drew going the exact same way.

I think the show will be better off if they do some mini mystery arcs rather than drawing out one mystery all season. Honestly, the only time I remember a season long mystery arm working was S1 of Veronica Mars.

So did anyone actually watch the panel and get an explanation of why this show is so silly?  The setup and talent, and especially the production, actually being fairly nice, but the actual execution so totally crap?

The CW is developing an updated "Tom Swift" series, with one episode of Nancy Drew this season possibly being used to introduce the character.  Sounds like it will be more of an Arrowverse-style introduction of the titular character, rather than a push-aside-the-regulars backdoor pilot.

From TVLine's write-up:

Quote

a potential new series centered on iconic inventor Tom Swift is being eyed at the network, albeit with a huge (and super-cool) asterisk attached: The formerly white, blonde and straight lead character will now be Black and gay.

From Deadline's write-up:

Quote

Plans are for Tom to crash into one of Nancy’s investigations, an event which Nancy interprets as supernatural and Tom believes to be cosmically paranormal.

I'm sure that will make sense in context.
