This series was one of the light, youth-oriented police-action shows that totally populated TV in the 1970's.
Starsky and Hutch were two plainclothes cops who were both swinging bachelors and their personalities meshed perfectly - they almost seemed to operate as one.
Starsky was the streetwise cop and Hutch the better eductated, soft-spoken one. Together they tackled cases in the roughest neighborhoods in Los Angeles - full of pimps, drug dealers, big-time hoods and muggers. Sometimes they went undercover, but mostly they were highly visible, racing around town in Starsky's bright red and white striped 1974 Ford Torino. Captain Dobey was their quick-tempered but understanding boss and Huggy Bear their flamboyant informant.
