Episode Guide


  1. Starsky and Hutch
    A shooting in which two teenage lovers are killed indicates that the intended targets were actually Detectives Starsky and Hutch, when the car the victims were in turns out to match Starksy's. All indications point to a local crime-lord who is awaiting trial being behind the (intended) murders, but when he flatly denies the claims, the duo set out to hunt down the real culprits...

Series 1

  1. Savage Sunday
    An elderly couple plan to protest the conditions at their retirement home by blowing up city hall, but their car is stolen by two hapless street thugs with the bomb still ticking away in the trunk. Starsky and Hutch are called upon to save the day, although not the Chevy, with some fancy driving and an impressive last minute leap from the flaming vehicle.

Turns out to be the other cops who were in on the bust who are actually working both sides of the street and playing them against the department and the drug lord. This episode also features the incredible dissapearing dalmation who saves the boys lives just by sitting on the sidewalk.
  5. The Fix
    Mobsters seeking information about Hutch's latest squeeze, who just so happens to be the ex of a major underworld boss, kidnap him and inject him with heroin. He escapes, but not before he has become dependent on the drug and Starsky must nurse him through withdrawal while simultaneously catching the bad guys.
  6. Death Notice
    An immigrant, afraid of being caught by the "phone cops", tries to warn strippers at a nightclub of the threats he's heard against them over his illegal telephone.

After a few false leads, the reset buttons on the girls car radios lead them to Captain Jim of the Airwaves, a recently released paranoid whose wrapping himself in tinfoil doesn't quite keep out the voices telling him to do bad things.
