|Produced by Aaron Spelling (TV's "Charlie's Angels," TV's "S.W.A.T."), STARSKY AND HUTCH roared onto small screens in 1975 to become one of the most popular, iconic series of the decade. This was TV's coolest buddy cop show, fueled by full-throttle car chases, offbeat humor, colorful characters and a hip vibe. The hit series (1975-1979) followed streetwise undercover detectives Dave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (David Soul) as they cruised around town in Starsky's red and white-striped Gran Torino, battling thugs and hoodlums with the help of their gruff boss, Captain Harold Dobey (Bernie Hamilton; Blacula, Scream!) and jive-talking informant Huggy Bear (Antonia Fargas; Shaft, Car Wash). Includes all 22 episodes from the first season on 5 Discs.|
Editor's NoteDave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (David Soul) are plainclothes cops patrolling the streets of an unnamed American city (portrayed by Los Angeles) in a 1973 red Grand Torino. Dark-haired Starsky, who has an unflagging appetite and a quick quip for any situation, and tall, blond, Hutch, who is more soulful and serious, are not just partners on the job--they are also close friends. But their unorthodox methods are endlessly frustrating for their boss, Captain Dobey (Bernie Hamilton). The duo has a powerful ally on the street, however, in Huggy Bear (Antonio Fargas), a shady character who proves Starsky and Hutch with plenty of inside information. Perhaps the prototypical 1970's American cop program, the series ran on ABC-TV in the U.S. from 1975 to 1980. Season one contains 22 episodes.
