A Wonderful Show For All Ages
25 June 2001 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

A couple of years ago, I used to watch Nickelodeon all the time. Then, as I got a little older, I started to drift away from Nickelodeon, but there was still one show that I enjoyed watching- "The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo". It was such a great show with a wonderful cast! It was about a girl named Shelby who had a part-time job at the local police station. She would talk about all of the cases that the detective was in the process of solving, and she would usually end up solving the cases herself. Along the way to solving them, viewers would watch her talk to suspects, and hopefully, they could solve the mystery on their own. It was sort of like the Encyclopedia Brown book series. I think that the show lost a lot in the last season. The entire cast was replaced except for Shelby. I would still watch this show if the episodes were re-run. To anyone that missed this great show- The books are pretty good, too. :) I give this a 10 out of 10!
