A vengeance-seeking fiend injects Starsky with a chemical compound that will kill him in 24 hours, sparking Starsky and Hutch to race against time to track down the criminal and his poison formula so...
Tough Detective Dave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and educated Detective Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (David Soul) are plainclothes cops taking on dope dealers, muggers, and other thugs, aided by their red-and-white 1974 Ford Gran Torino and informant Huggy Bear (Antonio Fargas). Both bachelors' private lives play as interweaving threads in the drama.Written by

Apparently, motel managers in the '70s didn't so much as have a glass partition, nor a door protecting them from the general public. The reception area in the sleazy motels Starsky & Hutch visit is invariably the same: a desk in the middle of the lobby, with stairs to the left and an open way to the backroom, to the right.

The Ford Gran Torino was an automatic, yet Starsky's car always had the very obvious sound that could only be made by a standard (or stick) shift. See more »
How can I begin to describe one of the best buddy/cop shows on the air in the Seventies? I looked forward to each episode and hated it when I had to miss it for some reason. The chemistry between David Soul and Paul M. Glaser was superb, with each man giving to his character that special something that can't be duplicated. The blond and the cute, the dark and the handsome, one a thinker, the other a doer, one quiet, one a little bit loud, but both very appealing....Did their best work in a red and white Torino. The show was at it's best when the powers that be let them do their own thing, at it's worst when it tried to comply with those who wanted it to be something it was not...it was not a show about social workers. It was a show about two cops and two men who cared about each other. It was at its greatest when it found the humor of life after all the chaos of the evenings episode. It was and is truly one of its kind. I loved it and cherish it as one of my favorite childhood shows. Thank you Paul and David!!
