Serious suspense
1 August 2016 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

If only this had been the example of how Season 4 was going to go, I think the show would have lasted longer and gained a better following. The episode was dramatic and suspenseful and still had a good Starsky and Hutch vibe to it. Usually when PMG is directing, we barely see him in any scenes and we lose the aspect of the Starsky and Hutch team. They did a real good job in this one of keeping Starsky as part of the action. Even if his scenes were shot separately, it was well done and looked as if he was there, working in tandem with Hutch, waiting for the right time to strike against the criminal.

I liked most every scene, I liked the old lady and her dialog of calming nothingness. That was pretty perfectly played. I liked the ticking clock in the background. The episode had a lot going for it. It wasn't exactly typical Starsky and Hutch, but it was good, and high quality. If only they could have kept on this track, things could have ended so differently.
