plausive: (Gaga bow)
This is something I've been meaning to talk about for a while now. It's something I bought eons ago, watched, and then put back on the shelf saying, 'Holy shit that was bad, I should cap that and talk about it on my LJ...'

And so now I am.

Here is the background, via the tiny blurb that Wikipidia has to offer on the series: In 1995, a TV show called simply The Hardy Boys was produced and syndicated by New Line Television, a division of New Line Cinema. The show was co-produced by Canadian broadcasting company Nelvana and was dubbed in French for airing in Quebec and France as well as in the United States. Colin Gray starred as Frank Hardy and Paul Popowich played Joe. The characters were portrayed as in their early 20s, Frank working as a reporter and Joe still in college. The show only lasted for one season of 13 episodes due to poor ratings.

I should clarify that despite what that poorly written sentence might have you believe, it was not dubbed in French for an American audience (though that might have been an improvement). Also, though the boys were meant to be in their 20's, Frank looked like he was having some kind of early midlife crises. I wouldn't have batted an eye if you'd told me he was 35. >_>

Let's start with the opening credits.
