I remember enjoying this series with the highlight on Starsky's and Hutch's friendship and some great chase scenes. I couldn't find out much about the DVD set from Columbia's website. (I am writing this prior to release.) They did say that the set is 1173 minutes long. Here is an episode guide which I hope will be helpful. I listed any guest stars whose names I recognized. However, they may have had a small part in the episode.
Here is an episode guide for Season 1, with a tiny description:
1.Pilot: Two teenagers in a car matching Starsky's are killed. A local crime lord awaiting trial is suspected.
2. Savage Sunday: An elderly couple's car is stolen. The thieves don't know that the car trunk is rigged with dymanite and a timer. Guest star: Suzanne Somers
3. Texas Longhorn: A wealthy man's young wife is raped and murdered. The bereaved man wants his own revenge.
4. Death Ride: The daughter of a crime boss who's ratting on his friends needs police protection. Starsky and Hutch don't know that they have been tricked. Guest star: Jeff Corey
5. Snowstorm: Starsky and Hutch are suspected of stealing a million dollars worth of cocaine after a drug raid.
6. The Fix: Hutch is kidnapped by a jealous mobster who gets him addicted to heroin.
7. Death Notice: Starsky and Hutch are bodyguards to a group of strippers who have received death threats.
8. Pariah: After a man arrested by Starsky dies in jail, the bereaved father begins killing police officers and demands that Starsky be punished.
9. Kill Huggy Bear: Huggy Bear, a police informant, ends up with some mob money and gets into trouble with the "owners".
10. The Bait: Starsky and Hutch pose as dealers to trap a drug supplier.

As someone who was ten when "Starsky & Hutch" premiered in September of '75, I was very excited to get my hands on this brand new DVD first season set in honor of one of my favorite shows of the 70's. (The other being "Emergency!"). Looking at these episodes so crisply re-mastered, brings back a lot of memories of sighing longingly while gazing at Paul Michael Glaser ("Starsky")..as my older sister pined for the dreamy David Soul ("Hutch"). I remember the excitement as a young child of waiting for "my" show to come on every Wednesday evening and discovering what "messes" my heroes were going to get into. Even back then, I appreciated the humor, loyal friendship and camaraderie of the two leads; two men who were never afraid to show or express their deep love and affection for each other. It is that element that has kept me a fan to this day.
As always, my favorite episodes involved angst or "hurt/comfort"..and I eagerly awaited fan favorites such as, "The Fix", "The Shootout", and "A Coffin for Starsky"; anything that expressed the heartfelt devotion and concern these two men had for each other. I know that in today's age, such overt displays of affection would be frowned upon amongst men..and certainly back then it was unique, unusual and different..but it is this very uniquely displayed vulnerability and CHEMISTRY amongst the gritty reality of their daily lives that made the show a winner for me, and still makes it so to this day. There has been, nor will there EVER be, a cop show to match the heart that this show had: two undercover cops whose priority to their jobs was surpassed only by their deep love and affection for each other.

Starsky and Hutch is perhaps one of the best cop shows of the '70s (there was a lot of competition then), and easily one of the best ever. It's about time that it's finally received the digital treatment it has so long deserved.
This was probably the first police drama that showed that cops could also be close friends and actually hang out together and have social lives. All cop shows previously were of the Quinn Martin/Jack Webb/Hawaii 5-0 variety, where everything was done by the book and the principals--although professional--were somewhat cold and very one-dimensional and superficial. This was also the first cop drama that showed that sometimes the rules have to be bent a little bit (and arms and god-knows-what-else broken!) in order to get the job done. Hey, it was rough out there on the mean streets of the 1970s.
This DVD set is a little piece of history. The first season is generally considered the best of the four, so this is the one to get. Lots of extras too, including an in-depth look at the Gran Torino that STILL has to be the coolest car ever telecast.

For true 'Starsky & Hutch' fans, this is an excellent box set. I give it 5 out of 5 stars simply because any fan of 'S&H' will no doubt love it.

'Starsky & Hutch' was a ground-breaking show when it debuted in 1975. Based loosely on the early-70s TV movie 'Super-Cops', itself a true-life inspired story, 'Starsky & Hutch' blended the buddy-formula that worked so well in 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid', as well as 'The Sting' with the conventions of TV cop show simplicities, throwing in a lot of personal touches along the way.

Critics initially lambasted the show for being little more than an ultra-violent shoot-em-up peppered with endless car chases, but the sincere sensitivity displyed by the main characters, fleshed out by the very-likable leads Paul Michael Glaser as 'Starsky' and David Soul as 'Hutch', as well as supporting cast Antonio Fargas as thier snitch-buddy 'Huggy Bear'(he was NOT a pimp!)and Bernard Hamilton as thier tough-as-nails 'Captain Dobey' was enough to take the hard 'edge' off of the violent action that would have quickly become boring and uninteresting.

The TV show 'S.W.A.T.', another Spelling-Goldberg production airing during 1975 was also initially a huge hit, packed with even more of the audience-grabbing uber-violence. Unfortunately, that show did not have the talents or likeability of a cast like Glaser, Soul, Fargas and Hamilton to give it any lasting appeal, and it was soon gone from the air-waves.

What gave this show it's lasting appeal was the near-perfect balance of action, friendship, humor and drama, all capped off with theme music, as well as incidental episode music that was far and away the best ever used on an hour long weekly cop series up until that time.
