Goofs

When S & H are racing back to save Molly, they are shown turning onto a wide boulevard with a dump truck in the background; this footage is from a previous episode. For most of this episode, they used car #3 with the chrome mirrors, but in this scene, the car has the red teardrop side mirrors. See more »

Molly Edwards: What's that?
Det. Ken 'Hutch' Hutchinson: This... is a concoction I whip up every morning. Hey, what do you want for breakfast, huh? I have Granola and I have wheat germ and I got All Bran and I got Coconut Stripes... and I, uh, and I got some uh, some blackstrap squares. Hmm?
Molly Edwards: [indicating Hutch's drink] What's in that?
Det. Ken 'Hutch' Hutchinson: Most of the above. And some vitamins and minerals.

Season 2 seems to give Starsky and Hutch a lot of opportunities to be caring and nurturing, in between moments of chasing down the bad guys. This is not necessarily bad, but it does start to put them in the position of being perfect, and of having to save the world. Starsky and Hutch as super heroes.

So this episode turns out to be okay. DS gives Hutch the right amount of caring and concern for the newly-orphaned Molly. It doesn't drop into maudlin territory, which it could easily have done. (With Earl Bellamy directing, we seem to be pretty safe from disaster.) Starsky and Hutch still have a case to handle in trying to track down who killed Molly's father and why. Fortunately the criminals are pretty stupid, since Molly can escape their clutches not once but twice by biting the guy's hand. Starsky and Hutch will get them in the end, with some help from Molly and ball glove

Some of the scenes and dialog are quite contrived - Starsky and Hutch surveying Molly's neglected home, Molly acting like a tough tom-boy type who doesn't need anyone, Starsky trying to make friends with a belligerent Molly by talking baseball. I've seen this story before and I'll probably see it again. Even so, David Soul has some nice scenes being a kind father-figure to Molly; Hutch is natural-born nurturer. But I almost like it best in the scene where he is listening to her cry in the other room and just doesn't know what to do. He really can't save the world or fix every problem, and that's okay, too.
