Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
The summer of 1977 found Starsky & Hutch’s producers biting their nails: Series star Paul Michael Glaser (Starsky) wanted out of his contract to pursue other opportunities but changed his mind at the last minute. Fortunately for fans, Glaser's return meant scrapping a backup plan the producers had to partner Roz Kelly (as Officer Linda Baylor) with David Soul's Hutch. Kelly's tough female cop does make a singular appearance in the series during the third episode, "Fatal Charm," which was produced during the 1977-78 season, just in case Glaser didn't return. Of course "Baylor & Hutch" doesn't have quite the same ring to it, and Glaser wound up staying with the series through its fourth and final season. The 23 episodes of Season 3 have some noticeable changes, including a new theme song and an episodic focus on '70s social issues that drew a mixed response from fans. In "Murder Ward," the duo go undercover at a mental institution; a close friend of Starsky's turns up dead in "Death in a Different Place," and the partners’ investigation reveals that he was a closeted homosexual; "The Crying Child" focuses on child abuse; and in the second of three episodes directed by Soul, "Manchild on the Streets," a drunk driving pursuit leads to the wrongful shooting death of a friend by a rookie cop. Season 3 also features a bevy of guest stars; keep an eye out for: Hunter's Stepfanie Kramer; Three's Company star Suzanne Somers; future E.T. star Dee Wallace Stone; Taxi's Danny DeVito; and proto-‘70s TV kid Kristy McNichol, who popped up at least once a season on S&H.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the first 3 seasons of this TV Series and have been waiting patiently for the fourth and final season to be released. Maybe if a bunch of people request it, it will be available soon!!
