Starsky and hutch never gets old
15 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Action , Drama , humor . Romance . all combined into one even at 15 years old and nearly 45 years old i love this show the exquisite chemistry and performances from the best star sky and hutch David soul , Paul Micheal Glaser so convincing at every moment exhilarating car chases wonderfully choreographed shootout sequences . I recommend if you have just discovered this series begin with it and maybe leave the movie out of you're collection again it was not bad movie just lacked the magic of the original show that couldn't be replicated in any cop show that preceded it with the exception of the Sweeney which starred the late great John thaw which had a completely different tone to this show being more violent and tough with less humor .
