Starsky & Hutch Fans
The episode Jojo has such a powerful message I was surprised that there weren't more stories. Maybe the theme of resistance to rape and taking a stand is more (woke, as they say) now than it was in 1976?
Jojo is a nasty piece of work and no mistake. Starsky and Hutch are very sympathetic to the abused women but the whole culture then of having to prove why a woman provoked a rape rather than punishing the rapist for his violent acts was so pervasive.
One thing I always love about this ep: Starsky and Hutch sitting on the hillside in the long, dry grass. So evocative of California landscape and proof that it was a draught year since it was filmed in January when the hills would normally be green from winter rains. Brown grass is the color of summer around here.
