I wasnt around when the original series first aired, and really only got into Starsky and Hutch watching re-runs on Granada Plus. Whats not to love about this program, there is action, drama, comedy, angst, a little romance, two of the best looking screen cops ever and the most WONDERFUL car in creation!!
The second series is definately my favorite. PMG and DS are so at ease with each other, and every movement, every line seems effortless, you forget that this is a scripted TV show, it just seems like real life....only a lot more exciting..
And sure its the late 70's and the clothes and hair are dated now, but its real action, no computers or forensics, just two guys taking on the world..its everyone's dream i think!!
And of course, probably the main reason i love Starsky and Hutch so much is their fantastic on screen (and off) relationship..its buddy TV at its best and i love it!!
My favorite episodes have to be Bust Amboy, Little Girl Lost and of course as a DS fan, the Psychic. We see the boys in a variety of different roles in Season two, theres a lot more angst, and a lot more interaction...its just wonderful...
