Sam McCloud is a rustic country sheriff from a rural part of the United States. He travels to the big city and joins the police force, using his country ways and laid-back approach to nab the bad guys.
Tough Starsky and educated Hutch are plainclothes cops taking on dope dealers, muggers and other thugs, aided by their red 1974 Torino and informant Huggy Bear. Both bachelors' private lives play as interweaving threads in the drama. Written by

In the pilot Starsky uses a Baretta 9mm automatic pistol and Hutch a Smith & Wesson .38 Special revolver. In the regular series, Starsky has swapped to a Colt .45 and Hutch a Colt Python .357 Magnum revolver. Hutch's handgun is actually the same weapon used by David Soul's vigilante cop character in the Dirty Harry film Magnum Force (1973). See more »
Throughout the series the rear-view mirror of Starsky's car is often missing when we see a two-shot of the guys in the car from the front through the windscreen. However in other shots of the car in the same scenes the mirror is almost always clearly in place. See more »
I love crime shows, old ones or new ones, it doesn't matter. My favourite part of "Starksy & Hutch" is the two main characters, Dave Starksy and Ken Hutchinson. They are so sweet and such good friends, they are a joy to watch together. This was back when characters on TV shows were actually likable, and these two are a prime example of that. Some of the writing leaves a little to be desired, but the cases are interesting and it's a fun show. It doesn't take itself too seriously. So if you're looking for violence and gore, find a different cop show. If you're looking for interesting cases and good characters, you will enjoy "Starsky & Hutch".
