    This is one of my top 10 favorite new shows of 2019. I love how they mix mystery, drama, and horror all in one show. The writing and storyline are phenomenal, I love all of the horror elements. The acting is excellent especially from Leah Lewis, Alex Saxon, Maddison Jaizani, Kennedy McMann, and Scott Wolf. The visual effects are outstanding especially Dead Lucy.

    Different than other adaptations of Nancy Drew, but I like where it's going after 3 episodes. Very different casting, interesting backgrounds on the characters.

    Too many people Pidgeon Hole adaptations to be true to the book. So you either have it in 1930's America, or you update it. The only thing I don't like is the location it is filmed. You can really easily tell that it's on

    This grown-up re-imagination of the teen detective series fits right in the The CW's mold of shows with a gloomy small-town atmosphere and a broody, reluctant hero with a tragic history at the center (see also: Pretty Little Liars, Riverdale). If you're looking for a show that combines that signature mood with a friendly poltergeist element, well, this oughta do it.

    This series has some considerable flaws, and as you might guess, can be fairly derivative, but it’s got a great lead in Kennedy McCann.

    While this series goes forth as a supernatural thriller approach to the Nancy Drew story, it doesn’t go overboard with the supernatural element, realizing that less is more in this type of story. ... McMann’s Nancy Drew is quite likable early on, save for the character’s obvious flaws and immature reactions to certain things.
