To me, the most important part of STARSKY AND HUTCH was watching the relationship evolve from the pilot movie through the fourth season. This zine is an attempt to show one way that evolvement might have come about.
The years have passed, but Starsky and Hutch's friendship is stronger than ever. Unfortunately, their enemies have also gained strength fueled by manic revenge.
He was nervous--stomach aquiver, hands shaking; and determined--smile in place... He stopped outside the squadroom, staring through the glass doors...
"You takin' tickets or somethin'?"
He whirled, coming face-to-face with a pair of impatient blue eyes. "Oh, no...I...I'm sorry." He stepped away from the doors, and the dark-haired man brushed past him, an exasperated look on his face.
"You'll have to excuse him. Had a bad night. Can I help you? I'm Sgt. Hutchinson."
He looked into another pair of blue eyes, lighter than the first and much friendlier. Hutchinson? He glanced through the glass again, finding the other man seated on the far end of one table... Starsky? Starsky and Hutch-- He beamed at the blond cop and extended his hand. "Richard Ashley, new man."
Hutchinson's handshake was firm and welcoming. "Glad to meet you. First day?"

A Sweet Revenge poem.
"It's funny how differently we look at things sometimes; a wrecked car wasn't even on my meter for disaster."
It was becoming harder and harder to find excuses to get away and Starsky was becoming more and more suspicious. No, that wasn't the word, because Starsky trusted him. More like worried. Starsky deserved an explanation, but Hutch still couldn't explain this.

Archivist's Note: The year 2004 afforded S&H fans some unexpected bonuses with the release of the Starsky & Hutch movie starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. The film caused a resurgence of interest in the TV show itself, and Paul and David were both in sudden demand for TV interviews and other guest appearances. They attended, with a good deal of fanfare, the LA and the London premieres of the film.
In LA, a long-time fan and friend to many of us in the SH community had a special opportunity to interact with Paul and David. She's written extensively of her experience and posted her story to most of the lists. But Internet life is brief, and her story is a delight. I wanted it to have a longer life. Since Carol was planning to attend SHareCon 2004, I published her wonderful retelling of what it was like to meet Paul and David on the red carpet in LA in the con zine. Many thanks to Carol for her willingness to share the joy.

Just a little fun in the squad room.
Diana's thoughts about Hutch. From the episode "Fatal Charm".
Starsky is looking with his emotions rather than the stark honesty of his camera lens.
After a minute Davey dried his tears and asked his uncle, "Do you think Dad is still alive?" Starsky knew deep inside that, yes, his partner was alive. He knew he would feel it if he was dead. Starsky said, "I don't know how I know, but I know he is. I can feel it. What do you feel?" Davey look up and replied, "I would know if he was gone like Mom. I know he is alive, Uncle Dave, I don't know why or how either but I know he is." Then he added, "I just thought that he'd be found before..." He didn't finish his sentence.

Yes, it's a poem, but relevant to most of us, so don't let that stop you. It's an old one, not anything new, but thought that there might be a few new authors asking themselves some of the same questions. I don't think it's archived anywhere else.
