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

In The pilot episode, both Starsky and Hutch jump/fall into a swimming pool. A close-up of Starsky in the water shows him in his blue shirt without his sweater, and his gun in his right hand. But the next cut to him shows him standing up out of the water with his sweater back on, and his gun in his left hand. See more »

Simply the best, better than all the rest!
4 December 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

How can I begin to describe one of the best buddy/cop shows on the air in the Seventies? I looked forward to each episode and hated it when I had to miss it for some reason. The chemistry between David Soul and Paul M. Glaser was superb, with each man giving to his character that special something that can't be duplicated. The blond and the cute, the dark and the handsome, one a thinker, the other a doer, one quiet, one a little bit loud, but both very appealing....Did their best work in a red and white Torino. The show was at it's best when the powers that be let them do their own thing, at it's worst when it tried to comply with those who wanted it to be something it was not...it was not a show about social workers. It was a show about two cops and two men who cared about each other. It was at its greatest when it found the humor of life after all the chaos of the evenings episode. It was and is truly one of its kind. I loved it and cherish it as one of my favorite childhood shows. Thank you Paul and David!!
