Trivia:
In France, this series was dubbed in an irreverent way, ad-libing a lot thus departing from the original scripts and using very funny, often absurd colloquialisms and phrases. Because of that, although retaining its drama flair, in France, it had more of a comedy element to it, more so than its American version, making the characters even more quirky and lovable. The French dubbing owes a big part of this show's success and popularity in France. (The same thing happened there with the dubbing for The Persuaders, UK series).See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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 »
Quotes:
[Starsky is driving a car with a bomb in the trunk]
Det. Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson:[yells] Get him the hell out o' here!
Det. Dave Starsky:[checks watch] Come on, for *once* be fast...!

Season 5: Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda!!!, 16 March 2007
Author: doherty-elle from United Kingdom

As a second-generation fan I discovered this TV Gem from repeats in the mid-nineties. I've just finished watched the final series and you can't help but think that a fifth season would have rounded it off rather nicely, 'Sweet Revenge' intentionally leaves the door wide open for the fifth series but with it's cancellation we'll never know what becomes of our favourite duo; does Starsky return to work? do they quit, get their happy ending in the shape of happy love affairs that's not doomed for once - what?!

The dynamic of Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul as the loyal, live-wired cops has hardly ever been equalled: Glaser brings passion and humour - not to mention the sexy strut and a smile to die for - into Dave Starsky. While David Soul brings humility and quiet strength into Ken Hutchinson, together they really are quite something. Then you have the coolest sidekick on '70's TV Huggy Bear played by Antonio Fargas though acquiring odd clothes he usually hogged the best lines! The second and third season is really when Starsky & Hutch is at it's finest: whether it goofing around in Las Vegas or on an exotic island, the stories are gripping in one minute then sensitive and serious in the next. My particular favourites are 'Murder on Playboy Island', Starsky's Lady, 'A Body worth Guarding', 'Murder at Sea' and 'Gillian'

First Season is slow but has some memorable episodes, the fourth is very gritty, realist and uneven at times. Showcasing the actors' restlessness. But episodes like Targets without a badge and of course Sweet Revenge proved that the show still had some sparkle left, pity really......
