Product Description

Paul Michael Glaser, David Soul, Bernie Hamilton, Antonio Fargas. Full-speed car chases, original characters and hip humor made this cop drama a hit for all four seasons it was on the air and inspired a motion picture remake starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. This set includes all 22 episodes and more. 25 episodes on 5 DVDs. 1976-77/color/16 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Starsky & Hutch: The Complete Second Season proves the 1970s ABC series, in its sophomore year, both codified its earliest strengths while continuing to evolve into a sharper, wittier, and often darker show. Contributing to those improvements were the stars themselves: David Soul (who plays maverick police detective, intellectual, and health nut Ken Hutchinson) and Paul Michael Glaser (as Hutch's more impulsive, junk-food-junkie partner Dave Starsky), each of whom directed exemplary episodes in season 2. Series creators also struck a more entertaining balance between the comic and dramatic possibilities inherent in Starsky and Hutch's bluntly honest, fraternal relationship. A number of stories placed the guys in intentionally funny undercover situations: as garish gamblers in the two-part opener "The Las Vegas Strangler;" entertainment directors (named Hack and Zack) on a luxury cruise ship in "Murder at Sea;" gigolo-like dance aficionados in the playfully-titled "Tap Dancing Her Way Right Back into Your Hearts;" and, most amusingly, stunt men in "Murder on Stage 17."

Those are all good shows, and the duo often bicker within them, to great comic effect, like an old married couple. (Soul and Glaser's commitment to their schtick as well as their more emotionally raw collaborations is truly admirable.) But it's the relentlessly tougher episodes that prove each character's mettle and demonstrates the depth of Starsky and Hutch's mutual trust. Among these is the powerful "Gillian," in which Starsky discovers Hutch's classy new girlfriend is a prostitute and breaks the news to his shattered friend. Somewhat lighter but just as revealing is "Little Girl Lost," starring a young Kristy McNichol as an orphaned street urchin whom Hutch, lately in a misanthropic, anti-Christmas mood, takes into his home. Glaser's directorial debut, the harrowing "Bloodbath," gives Soul a lot of room for an intensely physical and psychological performance as Hutch scurries to find his kidnapped partner. Soul returns the favor with "Survival," in which Starsky desperately seeks his missing pal, trapped and slowly dying beneath a car wreck. All in all, a very good season, with (of course) Antonio Fargas still sharp as sidekick Huggy Bear. --Tom Keogh

As a die-hard fan of "Starsky & Hutch", I eagerly awaited the DVD release of the second Season.

This Season showed Paul and David in prime form (characteristically and otherwise) and acheived a nice balance between comedy and drama. The chemistry, still strong as ever, is what makes this show MAGIC, and there's plenty of it here.

A nice mix of episodes.."Las Vegas Strangler"..and one that I barely remember seeing till this release, "Little Girl Lost"..which is now among my definite favorites.

Comedic moments abound in "Murder at Sea", "Tap Dancing...", "Long Walk Down a Short Dirt Road" and (especially)"Murder on Stage 17", but that isn't to say that this Season was turned into fluff. Despite First Season complaints that the show was too violent, the series still managed to hang onto their edge with eps like, "Vendetta", "Gillian", "Nightmare" and "The Psychic", to name a few.

"Bloodbath", directed by Paul..and "Survival", directed by David, both were chock-full of angst and hurt/comfort, and showed that these two talented actors could do more than just look pretty for the cameras.

..and speaking of angst, "Gillian" is a definite tearjerker, as is "Starsky's Lady"; both of which nicely showcase both actors' ability to express raw, gut-wrentching emotion.

Through it all..I think it is the CHEMISTRY that makes this series fly. No other show (that I've seen) has ever had two leads so effortlessly feed off each other with the warmth, humor, compassion and genuine understanding that these two actors seemed to have. Their "dance" is a treasure to watch and a gift to us all.

Starsky and Hutch was the quintessential 70s action show. The editorial reviewer got it right that the second season improved on the first in terms of darker stories and character development. Of course there are the cliches' but they handled them in unique and honest ways. The tag at the end of the episode Starsky's girl is poignant and unusually detailed. I remember the second seasons episodes being attacked by the press as being too violent and graphic at the time. Nowadays, after shows like Miami Vice (which Glaser directed some episodes), and Hill Street Blues, the violence seems tame, but there were some attempts (unfortunatly successful) to tame the show down after season 2, and rely more on the comedic angle. Season 2 still has Huggy Bear without his bar, and that always bothered me why they took that away from his character. Season 2 also has the truly horrible spin off attempt, Turkey and the Bear, which thankfully never got picked up. Buy this DVD, you won't be dissapointed. It's great period piece drama, right before the advent of disco. I see that they are releasing this set in conjunction with the release of the movie version, so I hope they decide to release the 3rd and 4th seasons soon and not leave us hanging. Oh...and please PLEASE forget about putting out a CHiPs DVD!!!! That dreadful series was everything that S&H thankfully never became, bland, bloodless and deviod of any real emotion.

This is an excellently put together box set. The quality is superb. One can see how the show is evolving and one can also see how in the "early days" of television, some scenes were cut and looped from season to season and episode to episode. The original show runners never anticipated that viewers would be watching these one after another. The scene of the Torino turning the corner followed by a big old Ford dump truck is classic. One can see how sets, locations, etc. were "instantly replayed" through the Seasons. It is an interesting look at the workings of early television production. It is interesting to see how many young or future "stars" cycled through "Starsky and Hutch" as early parts on their resumes. Much the same happened on "Seinfeld" over its eight seasons. My Mom and Dad always watched "Starsky and Hutch" and I can see why. My Mom always especially enjoyed Huggy Bear's scenes. One can see how this show was a "break-out hit." At the same time one can see that it was produced in the era before political correctness and there are lines and scenes in the series that would never even be thought about to script now. So the series is a real education in the evolution of this genre in the history of our lives.

Starsky and Hutch is still my favorite cop show. I watch all four years and fall in love with these two guys all over again. In fact I'm going to order all four years to have an extra set. My friend got the first two years and wants all of them too. I will always love these guys. Thanks for getting the dvds to me and my friend so quickly.

I thoroughly enjoyed this season of Starsky and Hutch! Of course, I loved this sitcom as a teen and when I saw that they were on dvd, I jumped at the chance to rekindle my passion for these two great stars. I'm intrigued by the way they entreat each other on these episodes. Go Starsky and Hutch!
