Not as bad as they could... They still have the Hardy Boys charm and good manners and stuff now.

Well, for the most part I guess...except that now The Hardys get a lot more "slangy" in their speech and use foul language every now and then....

Pretty much. Except they were teenagers trying to be punk. Or act like they were from the 90s or something.

They used foul language in the Casefiles. ::)

I don't recall any actual cussing except for stuff like "Joe swore softly."

Yeah. ::)

Not everyone considers that a swear word, though.

I think maybe one time I can recall did they have this- and that was in Dead on Target when Joe was trying to get past Frank to save Iola from the burning car. But they never had any actual swear words written out- I'd prefer they didn't even have lines like "Joe swore softly", etc. - but it's good in some ways for kids to see such scenes if they also see that cursing and swearing are not good language and should not be used.
      But they certainly don't need words spelled out as they appear in the UB books and treated as if they are normal parts of conversation. Because if they are for some people- they shouldn't be.

You might like the new series, Hardy Boys Adventures, it has some good stuff and is in 1st person, also. :) There are two so far, Secret of the Red Arrow and Mystery of the Phantom Heist. :)
Joe Hardy said "Iola is alive, I can feel it. I couldn't feel this strongly about someone who was dead."

"Then I won't tell you to give up hope," Frank said softly. 8)
