A memorable cast, but that's about it
8 March 2006 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

I recently finished watching "The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries" Season 1 DVD set and boy oh boy did it bring back memories. This particular episode may not have been the best, but it's one of the more memorable from the first season. The fact that it's memorable has nothing to do with the actual plot (it happens to be one of the weakest of the bunch), but instead, it's memorable for the cast. A pre-Halloween Jamie Lee Curtis and a pre-Nightmare on Elm Street Robert Englund have supporting roles. From what I could tell, there's not much here to suggest the pair would go on and have the careers they've had.

As for the episode itself, a wealthy couple hires a traveling carnival to help them put on a charity benefit. During the night, someone breaks into a safe and makes off with a fortune in jewelry. The carnival workers are immediately suspected. Nancy tags along to their next gig and, posing as a runaway, gets a job so she can investigate from the inside. As I said, it's one of the weakest episodes form Season 1. It's far fetched and features some of the lamest motorcycle action sequences put on tape. The series generally works better when the plots deal with ghosts and other mysterious happenings.
