I can't figure out why I keep thinking it either just ND or HB? :-\

No. I'm pretty sure Olivia just put that by mistake- The Lady on Thursday at Ten is strictly Nancy Drew. It's the last solo episode for Nancy Drew in the series and the last to feature Pamela Sue Martin in the title role.

Thanks. Wow, I thought I was going crazy! :)

Sole Survivor would have to be my favorite! It has a very interesting plot, the case becomes personal for the Hardy's, & there's lots of Joe peril in it! Too bad that Frank wasn't very emotional.

I'd like to know other people's thoughts on the episode.

With Sole Survivor I found that it was really interesting that the writers and producers had seperated Frank and Joe not just physically, but emotionally, since you had both thinking that the other was dead (and in Joe's case that his dad was dead as well) and that he was the only Hardy left. 

But then I also enjoyed Sole Survivor for the guest appearance of Diana Muldaur who had appeared in the Star Trek episodes Return to Tomorrow and Is There In Truth No Beauty? (as two different doctors), and who would go on to play Dr. Katherine Pulaski in the second Season of Star Trek The Next Generation.

Yeah- Diana Muldaur did a great job in that episode. And I definitely remember her best as Dr. Katherine Pulaski on Star Trek: The Next Generation. :D

But as to the Sole Survivor episode itself, I thought the storyline was really interesting and definitely pretty intense for the first time viewers. That was such an interesting twist to have Joe and Frank separated and each thinking the other was dead- and particularly the whole thing with Joe waking up to find out that he had apparently been in a coma for a year... all of those elements, along with Joe trying to find the truth in that episode- made for very interesting and entertaining viewing. 8)

I love how you put that!!

I'm glad that others enjoyed that episode as much as I did! The 70's show is actually what got me into the HBs. Over a year ago, my mom was flipping through the channels and suddenly exclaimed, "The Hardy Boys! I used to watch this show!" So of course, we all had to watch it. I thought that it was pretty awesome, and after watching a few more episodes over a few weeks I figured that it was about time to check out the books. Ever since then, I haven't been able to get enough of the Hardy Boys!

Cool! It's neat to know that the Hardy Boys TV shows (at least the '70s one anyway) have helped bring in new fans of the books. :) 8)
