Hetty is a 60-year-old housewife, a late bloomer, who sets up shop as a private eye to supplement her husband's meager pension. With moral authority, salt-of-the-earth candor, and a fully-loaded handbag, Hetty dispenses hard-boiled justice and motherly empathy in equally satisfying doses. Geoffrey, a destitute teenager, becomes Hetty's trusted and able sidekick. Her husband, Robert, also lends a hand.

One thing I do not care for is the ending of some of the episodes - the bad people get away with things. I love the ending of Woman of the Year - Hetty and Robert dancing and humming the theme music of the series.

Hetty is great! A sixty-year old solving crimes, is definitely a new turn on a detective series. Enjoyable and has enough humor to make even serious episodes fun!

I was sorta disappointed in this show, usually she solves dull, unexciting cases. Most of the mysteries are pretty transparent, though sometimes entertaining. Love the theme song!
