Starsky & Hutch


Starsky & Hutch
First screeching onto television screens in 1975, Starsky & Hutch brought viewers the same streetwise grit, violence and excitement from movies such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Dirty Harry. On the surface, plain-clothes Detectives Starsky and Hutch were like chalk and cheese. Ken Hutchinson opted very much for the quiet life, being well read, a deep thinker and enjoying fine cuisine. Dave Starsky, on the other hand, was louder, more brash, enjoyed street life and a diet of junk food. Their personalities might have contrasted, but once together, they meshed perfectly, practically operating and thinking as one as they cleaned the streets of criminals. Unlike other police series, Starsky & Hutch was a hip and modern spin on the genre and became a massive hit among audiences. It now stands as one of the iconic cop shows of the 1970s, particularly thanks to the fashion and infamous car chases that were packed into each episode. Starring: Paul Michael Glaser as Det. Dave Starsky; David Soul as Det. Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson; Bernie Hamilton as Capt. Harold Dobey; and Antonio Fargas as Huggy Bear.
