Tuesday S&H recs: Vendetta [Sep. 17th, 2019|08:07 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

Abby is back! Without any explanation about a separation nor discussion over Hutch's dalliance with Gillian. But all is not roses and sunsets between our lovebirds. Artie Solkin is lurking, and he's one of the more horrible characters in the series--a predator with a predilection for pedephilia. What is Hutch's backstory here? Why does he despise Solkin so much? (other than the obvious that Solkin is a snake?) Abby is attacked and now she's out of there, leaving Starsky to fill the void for Hutch.

Alone again….Naturally (m/m) by Hutchrules3
Picks up after Starsky's closing line in "Vendetta." Still feeling the aftermath of the attacks on him and Abby, Hutch heads for home after Abby leaves, only to find other ghosts waiting for him.

Tuesday S&H recs: Tap Dancing their Way Back into Your Hearts [Sep. 10th, 2019|09:06 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

The episode with possibly the most confusing title because A) no tap dancing and B) when were Starsky and Hutch out of our hearts? I adore Ramon with his lithe body clad all in black and his bizarre accent. I know there are many Charlie fans out there--tall and clumsy with his good ol'boy ways and those long striped trousers. Plus--it's Vanessa's long lost twin sister Marianne! And Hutch has sex on the job! The guys eat hot dogs in public...

Tuesday S&H recs: The Specialist [Sep. 3rd, 2019|08:21 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

The Specialist is an odd episode because we never actually are told who, what, where and why. We think we know some of that but who shot poor Mrs. Drew is never specified. Was her husband always loony or did her death send him over the edge? What about those employment records for Starsky and Hutch with photos of them wearing the clothes they have on in the episode? Do you go with tradition that written info doesn't count or do you like Hutch born in Salem, Oregon? (I do, for the record.) What did Starsky and Hutch do alone in that hotel room, and why is Hutch drinking a beer and reading the Bible? Questions, questions. Exactly why we have a plethora of fics today!

The Things you don't Want to Think About (gen) by Provencepuss Zandra Court wrote a great short about how Hutch reacted to the events in ‘The Specialist’ and these paragraphs set my Muse running to peek into Starsky’s mind again.

Tuesday S&H recs: Vampire [Aug. 27th, 2019|08:52 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

The first truly supernatural episode--is he a vampire or just psychotic due to the death of his wife? Does he fly, or just jump a reaaaallly long distance? Ballet dancer turned vampiric serial killer stalks Bay City on the next Starsky and Hutch. BTW--it has always bothered me that there is a scene where thunder rumbles dramatically in the distance, particularly that we don't see any rain. Very, very rare for Southern California which only has thunder and lightning a few times a year, generally in mid winter during a rain storm.

Tuesday S&H recs: Bust Amboy [Aug. 20th, 2019|09:21 am]

I like Bust Amboy for all sorts of reasons--it's got humor, Starsky and Hutch are largely together through the whole episode, and while they are investigating a crime boss, it is light-heated without being completely silly. (I do admit to cringing when they belittle the couple in the restuarant. Unkind, guys.) There's the first bicentennial bribe, eating of caviar, and Hutch gets stung by a bee. Your trivia fact for the day: Lisa Mordante, who plays Mickey, is Chita Rivera's daughter. She was a successful dancer on Broadway and got a Tony nomination.

Gillian--Season 2, episode 3. I will confess, not my favorite. Some lovely scenes, particularly the leather creaking desperate hug after Starsky and Hutch find Gillian dead. But how is it that Hutch is in love with Gillian, and they've been dating for a month? (not sure) when he was supposedly serious about Abby and goes back to her without a comment about G? There's a plot bunny for someone: Hutch discussing Gillian with Abby.

Tuesday S&H recs: Murder at Sea [Aug. 6th, 2019|08:44 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

In theory, this seems like a great episode: a cruise, the guys locked on a ship with a murderer (why does that seem vaguely like an Agatha Christie novel?), beautiful women, exotic locals, and--oh, wait--Lynne Marta, too? Not to mention that Starsky and Hutch look like they are having lots of fun as Hack and Zack, driving crazy fast in a dune buggy, and getting all sweaty carrying a bomb. Well, maybe that part wasn't fun but it's exciting to watch.

There's the problem for me, at least--the sum of the parts don't add up to a cohesive whole. This may be a two parter but there's something lacking. And why doesn't anyone want to write about it? Maybe my search parameters were off but I couldn't find any stories set on the ship (and I know there is at least one cause I read it in a zine, but of course, cannot remember title or author.) So here's mine--set after the cruise!

Love is Like Oxygen (m/m) by Dawnwind

Tuesday S&H recs: Las Vegas Strangler [Jul. 30th, 2019|11:03 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

Wow, we've made it to season two! The beginning of S&H's bloackbuster two parters, which always featured big name stars and rambling, not always plausible, plots. Starsky and Hutch get to dress up like extras from Guys and Dolls--did they really think people wear those clothes in Nevada? Hutch's old friend turns out to be the suspect in some murders in Las Vegas, but honestly, I never thought the LV police had that much of a case against him. And he's dying. Sadness. Starsky is jealous and makes a friend of one of the Vegas dancers who has a daughter with--I assume--spina bifida. Plus, gambling, Vegas glitz, and showgirls. Joan Blondell, the woman who works at the convenience store, played Lottie in Here Come the Brides with David Soul.

The last episode of season one! Bounty Hunter. I will confess, not an episode that sticks in my brain, and I want to watch again. (Hey, Flamingo--maybe we should try rarely watched episodes at SHarecon?) Also didn't find many stories for BH. C'mon, aren't there any more?

If you don't have any BH stories, how about reccing anything that sparks your interest?
