Trivia

The producer actually wanted to use a green and white Camaro instead of the red and white Ford Torino but the Chevy company were unable to help them. See more »

Goofs

Frequently throughout the series, a criminal will be seen using a revolver with a silencer attached. A silencer is useless on a revolver (except for the Russian Nagant M1895) as the sound of the gunshot will escape through the cylinder gap, the space between the front of the cylinder and the muzzle.

Not just about screeching tires
4 January 2003 | by WhKnight2002See all my reviews

And thank goodness for that. Starsky and Hutch could've been like every other cop show out there, all about fists and bad guys, tough street talk and that car, but it wasn't. What makes Starsky and Hutch unique among cop shows, even today, was the relationship between the two partners. I know that isn't and wasn't everyone's cup of tea, and there are a lot of people who malign the show for the alleged homosexual overtones, but it was the friendship that has drawn me back over all these years. What Starsky and Hutch had was a relationship that spanned all situations...from the crises (The Fix, Shootout, A Coffin for Starsky, et al.) to the everyday humor and good-natured bantering that showed how their closeness and enjoyment of one another. Call me sentimental, but the clothes, the car, the talk, all are somewhat laughable today...but a friendship like that is rare, as well as special, and never goes out of style.
