Honey For the Prince is a wonderful episode, although to some modern eyes the harem sex set-up might not be approved.

But, it is really a light-hearted, interesting, fun, original episode. You have to praise the commitment of the Ministry agents! After being shot, instead of seeking medical care at a hospital, one instead chooses to go to Steed's flat, and instead die giving him some vague information. The Quite Quite Fantastic business is a unique Avengers creation and should be highly lauded. Fans bemusingly regret the death of B. Bumble, no doubt gone to join the well populated "Avengers Minor Character Death Section" of heaven.

Steed wins over Prince Ali by being a cricker "all-rounder," much to the dismay of a large vase. Emma's infamous dance (equal to her dress in "A Touch of Brimstone") got the ire of the censors. I love how Emma's delicate order "Steed!" has him immediately forgetting all the harem women to directly follow her.

I think it is pretty clear at the end--when Emma disappears below, knocks hard on the floor, only to have Steed join her out of the camera's view--that they have good old fashioned welcomed sex.

I've mixed thoughts on this one. Love Mr Bumble and the supporting sequences but the harem scenes leave me rather bored.

On the contrary, the harem scenes are among the good points of the episode. Nowadays, it would arouse inappropriate criticisms.
