It's o.k.

Too bad that the Secret series has not been filmed in the 50's...what suspense and atmosphere it could have had.
Especially if it would have been filmed in England instead of New Zealand.
What I don't like is the fact that Blyton's books have been modernized and so have the Blyton based TV series...why???
"Tom Sawyer" and "Robinson Crusoe" are still popular among young readers and never have been modernized. So why Blyton?

For me the charm and fascination of the many Blyton's books always came from the fact that they have been written in the 30's/40's/50's and that was much more interesting for me than the modernized Blyton series like "The Famous Five" from the 70's.

There is one good example that it still can be done the right way. Just watch the 90's remake of "The Famous Five" TV series and you will be pleasantly surprised.
The 90's series sticks to the time when it was written, the actors wear vintage clothes from the 50's, the cars are old etc.

The problem with the modernized Blyton TV series (The Secret series and the Adventure series) is the fact that New Zealand has no castles. This should have been filmed in the UK!

Another great Enid Blyton series!
Another great show from the team that made the Enid Blyton Adventure Series.

The Secret Series is just as awesome as the Adventure Series, with so many great characters and terrific episodes.

It was great to see that they had managed to retain the same feeling of old fashioned values, but at the same time ensuring that the characters and stories would appeal to modern children and families.

This series has so many great villains and so many great laughs. If you were looking for a series to binge watch, you could try both the Adventure and Secret Series back to back.

Good Clean Entertainment`
I really appreciated that this series is one of a handful that is good, wholesome entertainment for kids. One doesn't have to supervise every show to make sure there aren't any goings-on not suitable for children. We will watch this again and hope to see more like it.
