Long Live Nancy Drew

post by Michelle Griep
I was a nerd. Okay, so I still am, but back in junior high, I was the nerd queen of Nerdsville. Every Friday night, when other little punks were hanging at the mall, I holed up in my room with an open-faced tuna sandwich and a Nancy Drew book. I started at 7 p.m. and generally finished up by 11. Ahh. Now that's living.

But all good things must come to an end. After 56 weeks of my Friday night ritual, my tuna sandwich evenings screeched to a halt. Sure, I could've read the knock-offs after I finished the original series, but it just wasn't the same.

So imagine my surprise when I came across a tidbit of news that CBS is planning on pulling together a new adaptation of Nancy Drew. They'll portray her as a 30-year-old detective who works for the New York Police Department. Hmm. Not sure how I feel about that. It definitely won't be the same.

Still, if it airs on a Friday night, I just might open me up a can of Chicken of the Sea and give it a whirl.

It can't be any worse than the first Nancy Drew series.
