Seeing Starsky & hutch back on dvd over the past year or so has been a joy (the movie wasn't such a big joy, I didn't like the way they chose to turn the characters around and rappers should in my mind stay away from, well, everything). These guys are so likeable, the car is so retro cool and Huggy bear is actualy kind of a sweet guy (and not a spaced out weed head like Snoop, whatever the name is this week, is), I've run through the episode like i was adicted, and I've seen them all again all over again after that. And since I like a lot of music from the time period and a lot of my favorite movies were made back then, it fits into my... well, like Rob said in High Fidelity, it's my personal fettish.
The third season is a bit more drama, a bit more characters and toned down action.Read more ›
However, I felt a bit disappointed as soon as I started watching the very first episode and felt increasingly thwarted in hope after viewing almost every additional one.
Most scripts -and I am comparing to nothing else than just seasons 1 and 2 of Starsky & Hutch- are blatantly inauthentic and lack of consistence and wittiness.
One of the episodes - sorry, I cannot recall which one of them- uses a big deal of footage previously used in an earlier episode, showing how producers started to lose respect for viewers. And nope, I am not talking of "Previous", a flashback episode in which Hutch recounts some stories of other episodes (this is not the worse one of this set.)
I ignore how good could be the fourth season but I am pleased about not having bought the complete set that included it. Enough is enough.
It's probably best to keep fond memories of the shows you grew up with as just that: memories. Most disappoint on some level when revisited years later, this one more than most although, it has to be said, not as much as The Man From UNCLE. At least the sets don't wobble in S&H. Something that surprised me was that David Soul wasn't nearly as good looking as I remembered. Pity.
