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 »
Way before the days of Charlie's Angels,there was Honey
During part of the swinging 1960's,there were several shows that depicted women is vast situations and encounters. That all changed when "Honey West" came when it premiered in 1965. This lady did it all,part detective,and part secret agent while maintaining her full figure. This was on the same venue as Emma Peel(who was played by Diana Rigg on the British series "The Avengers" which came out about the same time),but always manage to thwart the baddies and still remain sexy throughout. The show didn't last long when it was on the air(it only produced 30 episodes),but it still remains one of those forgotten shows that you'll
see only once.
NOTE: It would be grand if they did a big screen version of "Honey West" with either Pamela Anderson Lee or Kate Hudson in the title role.
