Trivia

A third, privately owned Torino had to be rented as backup for "Starsky and Hutch Are Guilty" (the owner was also invited to watch as a guest of the studio) because of the need for an identical car. See more »

Quotes

Captain Ryan: [Discussing Oscar Newton] What do you know about him?
Det. Dave Starsky: He's a junkie. Takes a few tips, turns over a few hot items. Nothin' big. Makes enough to feed his habit, keep off welfare.
Captain Ryan: Real outstanding citizen that you never busted.
Det. Dave Starsky: That's right. If we bust him, what does he get? Thirty to sixty days to dry out? He's worth more to us on the street. He's a good snitch. I know you don't approve, Chief, but that's the way a cop's gotta operate these days.

Starsky and Hutch are suddenly getting accused of bad deeds in their dealings with the people they are supposed to be policing. First they are accused of beating up one of their snitches; there are even witnesses. Then a prostitute and some massage parlor workers also say Starsky and Hutch roughed them up. Befuddled, our guys have to figure out who is setting them up, how and why.

We know, as viewers, that there are impostors driving a look-alike Torino, following our guys around and doing bad things using their names. How anyone can mistake those two impostors for the real Starsky and Hutch is a bit beyond me. Maybe when encountered in the dark or from a distance, but certainly not in broad daylight up close. I suppose, if you aren't familiar with the charms of the real guys, it could happen. We'll let it go.

Starsky and Hutch fear they are being set up by their own chief and don disguises (please, no) to infiltrate his office and check up on him. They ultimately find out the real set-up and take down their doubles and are exonerated. Yay.

Not a bad episode, but nothing too special. You feel for them in their confusion and frustration when they are first getting accused of all these things they didn't do. It seems to veer away from a serious track once they start doing the disguise thing, though. The emotion of the situation shifts and the tension is gone. It doesn't seem to take much to push this show from serious to ho-hum to comic. The balance was so critical and so easy to lose. I can't help but think how differently the series might have turned out if that balance could have been found and maintained.
