The Hardy Boys have been iconic characters in the “Kid Detective’ genre basically since it’s inception, as a matter of face, I think the boys and Nancy Drew may have created the genre. My memory is a little fuzzy on the subject, but I want to say that the brothers didn’t always just solve the mystery of the missing ice cream cone or whatever, I feel like they did get more serious from time to time. Regardless of my memory Hulu has a new series based on the detecting duo that seems to take on a more adult tone. That’s the thing now isn’t it? Take properties aimed at young adults and grow it up a bit? Nancy Drew has already done it. That being said, production value is high and the story seems interesting. After something happens to their mother the two move to a new town with their dad and immediately get enraptured in a mystery that needs their solving. Netflix gets all the hype but Hulu has really been consistent as of late, releasing very few stinkers. The more I think of it Netflix has definitely subscribed to the “Throw it all at the wall and see what sticks” method where as Hulu seems more quality over quantity.
