An interesting comic experiment

8/10

I have fond memories of this episode. Starsky and Hutch were strangely largely absent. Instead Huggy teams up with a friend to solve a case. It's essentially an attempt to create a comic detective pilot. I think it worked and was very funny as a sort of crude blaxploitation genre parody. There is good chemistry between Huggy and the Turkey and lots of interesting comical African American characters. It's a shame it didn't take off as it had a lot of potential with some further refinement. Maybe the TV audience just wasn't ready for an inter racial comic detective duo. One bi product of the pilot not being picked up was at least Huggy continued in the main Starsky and Hutch series. One of the greatest comic characters of 70s cop shows.
