ATAC agents, so they can end the UBs, and instead have someone else work for ATAC. That way the HB can solve cases on their own, and hang out with thier freinds, instead of ATAC being their only lives,

I don't know about a series just about ATAC agents, since it seems that whenever we see another ATAC agent in the regular novels by Simon & Schuster, that agent always goes rogue. (ie. Rocky Road, Club Dread)

Personally, I'd like to see Chet, Biff, Tony, Phil get together and form The Bayport Detective Agency.

  • Chet - A master of disguise and frequent source of humour
  • Biff - brawn of the operation
  • Phil - brains of the operation
  • Tony - ladies man, perhaps?

Better hope there are no cases involving ladies clothing stores, otherwise, I think we'd know where Tony would be.

Not bad, not bad. I'd still like to see Fenton, though.

I think that a series about Fenton on the NYPD would be pretty cool. Given the right plot development, it might even be better than the original Hardy Boys (though, given the publication of the UBs, Junie B. Jones would probably be better than the original Hardy Boys nowadays). It could feature actual grown up elements and crimes that don't take 10 seconds to piece together. It could have guest appearances by Lara Hardy and explain how they fell in love and how Aunt "Trudy" came to live with Fenton and his new wife. Heck, they could even throw in a few team-ups with a straight-out-of-Law School Carson Drew.

I think the cousins would still be good, I mean, who doesn't want to see what Frank and Joe's kids are like? ;D

I agree. Also Sam Peterson could be the co-star of the series. And later on in the series, you could even work Jake Johansen into the story.

Especially considering that on the 1977 TV Show The Hardy Boys Nancy Drew Mysteries Fenton Hardy and Carson Drew were especially chummy during the Arson and Old Lace episode.

lol XD No one wants to see the Mortons........  :o  :o

It wouldn?t really be a detective series. Or if it was, it would be more of a comedic one. But it would be funny.

Heck, they could even throw in a few team-ups with a straight-out-of-Law School Carson Drew. 

I especially like that, but then again, I always like it when people team up.

I think the cousins would still be good, I mean, who doesn't want to see what Frank and Joe's kids are like? ;D

There was going to be a series about Chet Morton, never made it past plot summeries though.

Yeah, I read about that proposed Chet Morton series once a while back- it seems it would have involved Chet and his many, many, many hobbies. Could've been interesting, and I would suspect pretty funny. But I don't know that I would've have cared that much about it- other than something of a Hardy Boys oddity kind of spin-off.

That would certainly be interesting... I would read it, if the first book was good.  ;D
Currently reading: I have no clue. I know it's a Casefile, but I think I finished it. (Basically, I'm trying to read to many Casefiles at the same time)

That would be sweet. I always kind of liked Sam.

Well, the series could show that they aren't all crooked.
