5.0 out of 5 stars I've waited almost 30 years for this, February 20, 2004
This review is from: Starsky & Hutch - The Complete First Season (DVD)
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.
