Trivia:
Ford Motor Company actually marketed around 1,000 special edition Gran Torino hardtops during the 1976 model year with the Starsky and Hutch paint job - the shape of the white stripe was not the same as the TV cars; sadly, the Torino was redesigned for 1977 as the LTD II, with the station wagon the only sole survivor.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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 »
Quotes:
[Starsky is driving a car with a bomb in the trunk]
Det. Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson:[yells] Get him the hell out o' here!

Elements of the 70s, defining a decade., 30 June 2006
Author: Benjamin Wolfe from USA

I just watched the 'Pilot' episode again the other day and it has all the talent of a theater film, with all the intrigue! It's awesome. If you own the DVD set, see the pilot, again.

From that moment back in late 1975 (I remember) I was not supposed to be watching T.V. much less be awake and in a dark living room watching television my show ended and then as I waited, I saw this new show. It shot through me like cold water in the face. I was on the very edge of my seat and I was almost seven years old. These two guys in a red and white striped Ford Gran Torino come practically sideways out of an alleyway being chased by a black Lincoln and race down streets until pulling into a parking lot skidding to a halt and one of the guys (with dark curly hair) bolts across the hood of the car in boots leaving a small ding-mark on the hood. The other fellow was pulling another big guy out of the black car too! There's a pretty dancing girl, "Hey this isn't bad, I thought to myself." They are now searching on streets for somebody at night, the red car rolling with magnet police light flashing along side the blond man, who's carrying a 357! All of a sudden that blond guy is yelling at someone in a parking garage(really loud, it looks like too) all this action and it was good, these guys are the good guys! I really enjoyed it and then the second season started and the theme music was done by Mark snow and Tom Scott. Just at the moment those first notes hit my eardrums, it coursed through my mind making a sound track impression {almost dreamy} that would instantly pull me back to that spot whenever I would hear it again! Thirty one years later it has almost the same effect when I hear the theme from season two. It was like being with the brother I never had (Soul) and the cousin I always love to hang out with (glasser) and a GREAT BIG uncle named Dobey. I am amazed at the topics that they covered in the first season alone. Figuring that this show being cutting edge was first brought to the air in the 70's it shows how they took different cases from actual police investigation files and made them for a large viewing audience. Death, , kidnapping, gambling, racketeering, etc and that was all in the 1975 season. This is the new breed of cop and cop show.

As bad luck would have it, one night...I got caught watching the show by my parents and forbid by my dad to watch it anymore. What else can a regular 'Joe' like me say other than...I'm still hooked. I went and saw the Movie and it was pretty funny, although they didn't reach the emotional or story depth that the show had on most of the episodes, but I was amazed at the end of the (2004)Movie when David Soul and Paul Michael Glasser entered the scene even the second time I saw it in the theater, the audience applauded and whistled!! (just about thirty years later)I was caught off guard by the audiences 'cheering', three decades after the show was 'canceled'.

P.S: Back then in the seventies, My Father used to work for Ford Motor Company I would go with him and run around the whole big place. "Bud Meadows Ford" in Portland Oregon, the dealership. He ended up selling quite a few of those limited edition 2-dr Red and white striped Gran Torino's I don't quite know at that time if he knew that the car was from my favorite t.v. show or not.(***)
