Available on DVD? All three seasons have been released on DVD by Warner. The first season has been reformatted to anamorphic 1.78:1 by cropping off the "TV Safe" areas at the top and bottom of the screen (the pilot was presented in this manner and the image looked symmetrical in most cases). Consumer reaction to this change was negative, so the other two seasons were presented in the original 1.33:1.
STARSKY & HUTCH (ABC, 1975-79)
Viewed the pilot - Originally aired April 30, 1975
Here is another series I watched religiously, but after all of these years, the only episode I can remember with any clarity at all is the infamous vampire one with John Saxon. Looking at the pilot, it is easy to see why the show went to series as it more than surpasses one's expectations for a TV police action adventure of the time.
The pilot hits the ground running with Starsky (Paul-Michael Glaser) and Hutchinson (David Soul) longtime partners with a reputation among both their superiors and the underworld for being unconventional and a major pain-in-the-ass. When a pair of hitmen (Richard Lynch and Michael Conrad) brutally kill an innocent young couple who happened to drive the same distinctive red and white Gran Torino as Hutch, evidence suggests that someone has a contract out on the two officers. A crime boss they are about to testify against in court seems like the obvious suspect, but the actions of a suspicious, low-level crook (Michael Lerner) make things a bit more complicated.
Watch Another Episode? Definitely.
Available on DVD? Sony has released all four seasons on DVD. This is presumably among the 50+ TV series that Sony recently licensed to Mill Creek, so it may be out again in the near future.
