A wealthy mystery man named Charlie runs a detective agency via a speakerphone and his personal assistant, John Bosley. His detectives are three beautiful women, who end up in a variety of difficult situations.
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

Starsky appeared with his trademark cardigan sweater only three times: Starsky and Hutch: Pilot (1975), Starsky and Hutch: Terror on the Docks (1975), and Starsky and Hutch: Running (1976). However, it is featured in the opening credits and many publicity stills, and that's why he is famous for it. He said in an interview that it was bought in a Mexican shop, heart of downtown L.A. and was referred to as the "Mexican sweater". Fans refer to it as the "Starsky sweater". See more »
In The pilot episode, both Starsky and Hutch jump/fall into a swimming pool. A close-up of Starsky in the water shows him in his blue shirt without his sweater, and his gun in his right hand. But the next cut to him shows him standing up out of the water with his sweater back on, and his gun in his left hand. See more »
David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser were fabulous as the perennial bachelors who took on an unorthodox approach to solving San Francisco's most heinous crimes!! Drugs were a big part of this show, it depicted the drawbacks to using drugs and illustrated the delirium that they put many destitute walks of life into! Paul Michael Glaser was sensational as the totally guy's guy detective!! His personality went beyond likable, his role as Starsky was a big component in making this series extremely entertaining!! David Soul was excellent as well, as the all American detective Hutch, he definitely sparked an identifiability with the television viewer!! The rest of the cast was realistically portrayed in keeping with the time (the 1970's) that this show aired!! The '2005 movie was more of a satire of the original series, and was amusing more than anything else!! As a kid, I liked "Starsky and Hutch" a lot and I am glad that it was a big part of my childhood television viewing!! I give it a thumbs up!!
