Goodbye Nancy Drew
19 September 2019 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

After dropping her father at the airport, Nancy gets lost on her way home. She makes a wrong turn and hits a guy. The next day, Nancy heads to the local precinct as instructed to make her report, but there's no record of an accident. In fact, the police officer she spoke to the night before doesn't exist. Nancy, quite naturally, sets out to investigate.

What a sorry way to send off Pamela Sue Martin. The Lady on Thursday at Ten has a multitude of problems, including poor direction, lazy editing, and distractingly bad ADR work. The absurd plot turns Nancy into an idiot, while making the bad guys look like magicians. The way they were able to clean-up all traces of Nancy's wreck in one night is nothing short of a miracle. By the time the episode's finale rolled around, I had lost all interest in what was going on. It's as if the people behind the show couldn't have cared less about the quality of what they were churning out. Overall, it's pretty much a disaster.

I really hate that Martin went out with such a whimper. Some of her Season 1 episodes are very well made and incredibly entertaining. Instead of this piece of garbage, judge Nancy Drew and Pamela Sue Martin by episodes like The Mystery of Pirate's Cove, A Haunting We Will Go, or, my favorite, The Secret of the Whispering Walls.
