Network Vs. ATAC
« on: August 06, 2008, 03:52:25 PM »
This is in response to the discussion "Calling All ATAC Fans".  I thought that I'd see which agency, out of the two agencies that the Hardy's have done a lot of work for in the books, do people like better or prefer?


For me, its the Network.

ATAC
"Hey! Don't do that here. You'll mess up my bedspread."
Rolling his eyes, Joe sat on the window sill and started sawing.
"Thank you, Joe."
"You're welcome, Martha Stewart."

If you can call it a discussion!

The Network for me! For one thing they don't take over the Hardy life, and for another while both are cheesy, The Network is the least cheesy.

The Network!

New Emanciptated Technicians Working On Real Kases. (The last word is suppose to be "cases" if you didn't catch on - hardy ha-ha).

;)

I don't know if that even makes sense.

I don't know this for sure (so correct me if I'm wrong) but it seems the Network is more far-reaching, both age-wise and globally.

Sure, ATAC is sometimes sent out of the country, but ultimately it seems to be restricted to young people for field work, and cases related to the U.S.

Yes, I know that's the whole point - young people + U.S. cases, but still!

Even in the recent Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super Mystery Danger Overseas the Hardy's were wondering why ATAC was sending them overseas when ATAC is, apparently, an American organization only and only has jurisdiction in the US.

Why do you think it is an American organization, Tom?

American Teens Against Crime

Plus, if you look at the chapter where Frank and Joe receive their mission, the author details ATAC a little bit.

It would make sense, but if it is just a private agency, it wouldn't really have "jurisdiction."

Well, considering that the books have mentioned that the FBI have called on ATAC a few times and I believe one book mentions that ATAC is an official government agency, just the cloak and dagger type, I would say that ATAC wasn't a private agency.

If its cloak and dagger, (black ops?), I don't believe it would have an official jurisdiction either.
