Re: RARA-AVIS: Honey West

Date: 23 Aug 2001

I happened to catch an episode as an adult and was surprised that it held up.
 A lot of shows from my childhood don't. But at a half hour per episode, there wasn't a lot of room for extraneous bullshit.

I've got a couple of the books, read one: DIG A DEAD DOLL. In tone, I'd compare it to say, a Shell Scott. They seem to be pretty much a goof. Each chapter is an excuse for Honey to get her blouse removed.

Are they hardboiled? Yeah, right.

Anne Francis was a helluva lot hotter than Reese Weatherspoon will ever be. If the same folks who did her flick LEGALLY BLONDE are involved, I don't expect a great detective series here.
