(D.O.A) A' La (Starsky & Hutch) !

What a plot ! And they utilized it just to serve the state of the show at the time perfectly. It's hot with fast events, good looking girls (the evil man's woman, the girls of the porn movie), a twist, an emotional situation (if we were in a cowboy's movie.. I would give you my shoes), nice music (the sensitive guitar at the hospital), and a climax where the rescue will be in the nick of time.

It's fun. And by this lovely era's measures where the channels were limited, it's super fun. (Paul Michael Glaser) is as always the most charismatic, prince of cool, and the funniest. (David Soul) is not having the same qualities, with some chilliness despite the famous gracefulness. I think the whole story of the avenger father was so late and a bit lame. I disliked the forced laughable finale, it was always unbearable (even at its time !), my only consolation that it was here less stupid than others like, earlier in the same season, the one at (The Hostages)'s end.. OHHH that was cruel !

For sure they didn't want to make it deep or profound. It's the plot of 1950's D.O.A for dynamic and entertaining 60 minutes. And it worked, for the plot, the formula of the show, or the strong producers' creativity. Moreover it still works for the great nostalgic feeling of having an afternoon's foreign show, or a Wednesday's night one as we used to have in Egypt during the good old 1970s and 1980s when we enjoyed too many sweet, plain, and innocent Starskys & Hutchs.
