Honey West, a slinky, glamorous female private eye, was something new to television --- In an era when actresses were confined to sedate housewife and girlfriend roles, this series marked a unique and original departure. This was the first dramatic TV series in the U.S. with a female star in an action-adventure role traditionally played by a male actor. In addition to being television's first modern, independent, self-sufficient woman, Honey frequently engaged in energetic fight scenes and shootouts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honey honey Oct. 16 2008
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Every time a semi-intelligent, capable heroine appears on a hit TV show, we're told that now all those old cliched women's roles are passe, compared to Heroine X.

But Honey West was truly one of the groundbreaking TV heroines, way back in the mid 1960s when women were still classified either as housewives or girlfriends, and a sexy woman was usually an evil one. "Honey West: The Complete Series" ended up being a pretty solid, unique detective show, with a heroine who definitely broke the mold -- both back in the sixties, and in the current day.

Honey West (Anne Francis) inherited a detective agency from her father, and instead of living off other people's work she dove into it, along with her long-suffering (and very hot) partner Sam Bolt (John Ericson).

As the series opens, Honey attempts to nab a criminal for a client -- the baddies get lonely, wealthy widows and wives into sexual situations, photograph them, and then blackmail them for ridiculous amounts of money. To make herself a target, Honey stays at a luxurious resort and pretends to be the neglected wife of a senator... while Sam pretends to join the blackmailing gang. Of course, it doesn't take long for the bad guys to start catching onto them.

And as the series goes on, Honey and Sam have some interesting problems to deal with, both for themselves and for law and justice and all that -- firebugs, kidnapped pop singers, stolen designer dresses, a horrendously spoiled little girl, a jade owl, jewel thieves, gypsies, a mobster's ex, an amnesiac with way too much money, loads of counterfeiting, psychics, embezzlement, and lots and lots of assorted thieves. There's even one thief who impersonates the one and only Honey West. Now that's personal.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS HONEY IS REAL SWEET ! Feb. 1 2009
By The Critic TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Presented for the first time on DVD format from VCI Entertainment "Honey West" includes all 30 episodes remastered in glorious Black & White. Either the prints used for this DVD release were in great condition to start or VCI thoroughly cleaned them up because this show looks spectacular! The video image is crisp and clean and the sound is terrific. This incredible 4 single sided disc set with amazing artwork and solid packaging is a must for any "Honey West" fan new or old. Nothings Sweeter than Honey!

In the early 1960's British audiences were treated to Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman) the beautiful female co-star of the Avengers TV series in Britain. In 1965 just about the same time as Mrs. Emma Peel was introduced into U.S households the beautiful "Honey West" (Anne Francis) made her mark as one of televisions first female action / adventure stars in a lead role. The "Honey West" character was first introduced in an Episode of "Burke's Law" called "Who Killed the Jackpot?" where honey outwitted her male counterpart played by Gene Barry proving that she could be as good as any male detective.

Premiering in the fall of 1965 "Honey West" was given her own 30 minute television series from producer Aaron Spelling, sadly this show only lasted 30 episodes. Anne Francis was the perfect choice for the "Honey West" character she was beautiful, seductive, glamorous and everything her British counterpart Emma Peel was. In an era of television when women stayed mostly in the background or took lesser roles Anne Francis was a pioneer and she paved the way for many actresses who followed.

"Honey West" following in the footsteps of her late father a top notch investigator in his own right, inherited his private eye firm as well as his old partner Sam Bolt.
