Some of this show is laughably bad, but mostly it's just bad. For example, the first two clues the ladies find are 1) *gasp* footprints! In MUD! They seem to think themselves clever for finding them. 2) A torn piece of cloth caught on a sharp object nearby in clear view. They seem shocked by this. "What if she was...running *away* from someone?" one of our protagonists asks, as though nobody but her would have made such a connection. And then the rest of the episode spends as much or more time on makeup and giggling over fashionable clothes than it does pondering about the actual mystery. This might be bearable if the characters had any depth or reality to them, or any wit to their dialogue, or anything worthwhile in their mystery. Sadly they do not.
I like plenty of cheesy shows. But Nancy Drew herself would find the women in this show too immature for her, and Miss Marple would find them dull-minded. I'm glad we have other female detectives who can give us better stories and characters!
