One of the best if not the best episode of "Honey West"
4 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series finale, written by William Link and Richard Levinson ("Columbo") is arguably the best "Honey West" of all. At that, it is not great so much as well above average for the rest of the show.

First, the story creates tension immediately. A man stands on the upper-storey ledge of a hotel, threatening to jump. Everyone else reacts to this dramatic situation.

Second, as Honey and Sam try to help resolve this crisis, they face obstacles that become puzzles that turn into riddles. The applicable cliché is "The plot thickens"; and this is a cliché precisely because it describes what a well-told story should do. Honey solves the riddles with a Jessica Fletcher-like insightfulness that is not alien to her character but is rarely so well employed as it is here.

Many of the gimmicks familiar from other "Honey West" stories are missing. There are no radios hidden in martini glasses, and Honey's solitary use of martial arts is off-camera. The tone is realistic rather than cartoonish and the comic relief in the denouement is both funny and appropriate to the story that has preceded rather than merely based on some strained pun.
