Nancy and the disappearing car
16 February 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

From the vantage point of a glider, Nancy watches a car run off the road. The police investigate, but can't find anything and tell Nancy she must be mistaken. The road Nancy identifies has been closed because of a washed out bridge. However, the police later find the burnt out remains of a car matching Nancy's description, but on a different road. It's nowhere near the spot Nancy had pointed to. The police suspect insurance fraud, but not Nancy.

The Mystery of the Diamond Triangle is a decent enough episode - not the worst nor the best of the series. Nancy's big break in the case has little to do with her detective skills and more to do with sheer luck. She and George just happen to be in the right place at the right time to see how the car got past the washed out bridge. It's a fairly creative way to get a car over a missing bridge, but I wish Nancy would have discovered the truth in a different manner. Nancy and George's escape from the baddies was a bit far-fetched, but fun. Nancy gets to show off a little skateboarding skill. Also, it was a pleasure seeing Gordon Jump in a supporting role. I think he appeared in every show made in the 70s.

I'll call this one better than average and give it a 6/10.
