In television's first prime time series starring a female private eye, Honey West would take on any tough case. She could handle herself mingling with millionaires just as well as scaling a thirty foot wall. Along with colleague Sam Bolt, Honey West was sure to solve the case.Written by

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, too, have recently been enthralled by Honey West. I have 4 episodes (complete with glitches) that I watch over and over. This was a wonderful show. The batter is funny, too! Excellent job by all involved. But most of all there is the charming and glamorous Anne Francis. Knowing that Honor Blackman was originally in mind for the role is interesting, as I am a huge fan of the early Avengers episodes with Blackman. Anyone who loves The Avengers will love this show. It is too bad it only lasted one season, as it would have been great to have a color season as well, but what we do have are 30 fine half-hour episodes (plus the introduction of the character on an episode of "Burke's Law".) I am anxiously awaiting the release of "Honey West" on DVD here in America. It is already out in Europe, but a US release is coming in 2008. Can't wait.
