Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Frequently throughout the series, a criminal will be seen using a revolver with a silencer attached. A silencer is useless on a revolver (except for the Russian Nagant M1895) as the sound of the gunshot will escape through the cylinder gap, the space between the front of the cylinder and the muzzle.

Starsky and hutch never gets old
15 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – 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 .
