This was produced by Aaron Spelling, who later created Charlie's Angels (1976). The similarities between the two series cannot be ignored. This show may have been ahead of its time, lasting only one season. However, by 1976, times had changed and, sprinkled with the proper camp elements, Charlie's Angels (1976) was a runaway hit.

The style of the detective agency's name changes from episode to episode. Sometimes it is "H. West & Company, Private Investigators" and other times it is "Honey West & Co., Private Investigators." In the novels on which the series is based, it was sometimes "H. West, Private Investigators" and other times "H. West, Private Investigations." The reason it was "H. West" in the novels and not "Honey West" was twofold: Honey did not want potential clients to know she was a woman before they met her, and the business, which she had inherited from her father, Hank West, had always been called "H. West." See more »
I recently got my hands on a few episodes of this show and I still don't understand why it only lasted one season, just as I wondered in 1965...! Not only good looking people, but interesting story lines, good guest stars, great clothes & cars, hip apartments, delicious banter and a very unique camera/editing style! Who's cuter than Anne Francis?? and wow, John Ericson is gorgeous! I also enjoy the comic relief of Jack Jones' mother, Irene Hervey as Aunt Meg. I plan to find more episodes of this show, maybe ALL of them! I recommend this show to anyone who enjoys private eye fare, good looking blonds, 60s hunks and good 60s TV!
