"The Intrepids" are Tom and Julie, a Frenchman and a Quebecker, who became half-brother and half-sister when their parents remarried. In Montreal or in Paris, they host a secret call-in radio show, helping out other teenagers and solving crimes and unusual events. All of that, without the parents knowing or the other kids being aware of their true identity. Written by
They used to show this on TVO and I remember tuning in to watch it almost every single day. It was so cool! It was like the James Bond for kids. They have cool gadgets and ideas and plans, they actually get into dangerous situations and fly planes in emergencies or jump into fires or whatever. They did everything kids wanted to do. They were characters you could connect to, and it was so much fun going along with them to see them help a bunch of other kids, whatever it was. Kidnap, abuse, kidnap (there was actually a lot of this), art frauds and the like. It was a very intelligent show, and I'm glad they didn't condescend kids. This IS a real classic. In fact, I'm pretty sure I would watch the reruns, what? ten years down the road.
