I think it's safe to say there are a lot more mistakes in other books, and maybe even other HBs series.

Also, it might not be that they didn't do the research or have the knowledge. Sometimes a detail could be forgotten or since there is a limited amount of space in a book, they skip over things.

Um, so what DO you like about the Hardy Boys? You seem to dislike the main premise!

devoika86 - It has to be like that in a series like this. Otherwise they'll actually get older. Or, the amount of books that can be written will be very limited.

Of all the things to pick on, that is the one thing that can't change or the whole series won't work.

You must hate TV too ;)

I think it would generally put a damper on it if they were college-age. It's almost like they are too old and have more responsibility or something. Not that it couldn't work or wouldn't be just as good, but still.

I don't mean "too old" as in "Wow, they're old!" Because hello, I'm obviously a certain age too ::) I just mean for the sake of the series their their original age works well (16-18).

But I have read a couple of fan fiction (haven't read any in a long time though, and I'm really selective) where they do pull them off in their 20's very well.

well at least in the casefiles they should be older, like 19 and 20 or whatever. but the hardy boys are still good and all, but some are just more unbelievable than others is all
