Recorded back in the winter or 2018, this episode of our drink-tasting side podcast examines six novelty sodas, which turned out to range from quite tasty to disgustingly awful! Wanna guess where peanut butter soda falls in that range? We also discuss what animals Starsky & Hutch’s patronus would be, and whether Hutch would put eggshells in his coffee grounds.
Cults! Kidnappings! We picked up a copy of the script for “Bloodbath” while at SHareCon, and boy did a lot of stuff get cut from the final episode! Gail gets a ripped-from-the-headlines backstory, and what’s this about Hutch’s mother getting poisoned??? Also, we discuss the rumor of a S&H reunion special, the return of Starsky’s blue Adidas shoes, and two other podcasts where S&H were mentioned recently.
We go over the script for the S&H episode Hutchinson for Murder One, pointing out details and changes that intrigue and delight us. But first, we talk about Antonio Fargas’s roles in Cherif and Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and then about Hutch’s star-and-moon necklace!
In our previous episode we talked about the panels, vids, and games at SHareCon 2019. But what was it like to just sit in the main convention room, listening to fans chat with each other about Starsky & Hutch? To capture that atmosphere, we did four small group interviews, covering everything from fandom friendship to the fascinating features of PMG’s face.
Group 1: Carmen, Asha, Maria Priest Group 2: Lorraine, Anachron, Suzan Lovett Group 3: Elaine, Dawnwind, Silver Chipmunk, Kat Group 4: Keri T, Hardboiledbaby, MatSir
Rachel and Monica return from their second SHareCon and tell Jen all about it! This year’s con brought some new experiences, such as narrating the Baaad SH Theater play and flipping through the SH Lending Library, as well as previous favorite activities like the games, vids, and panels. Oh, and if anyone wants Zebra Three #5, Monica now has an extra copy.
Little details, lines of dialogue, and whole scenes get lost in the journey from script to finished episode. We pour over the script for Gillian, discuss the changes, and act out the missing scenes. Listen and be shocked by how much worse some of the dialogue was in the script! And then be delighted by some suggestive screen direction!
You hear a song on the radio. Maybe it’s about a steadfast partnership, me-and-thee against the world. Or maybe it’s about losing faith in the system and questioning your place in the world. Does it make you think of Starsky & Hutch? It does for us! In this episode we pick eight songs and discuss what makes them perfect songs for this show.
For months, Rachel has had only one episode of Starsky & Hutch left unseen: Huggy Can’t Go Home. We watch and discuss this unusual episode. Also, we discover a Barenaked Ladies song that mentions S&H, and talk about why S&H came up in Rhod Gilbert’s radio show.
Talking points in this episode include David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser’s guest-roles in The Streets of San Francisco, Bernie Hamilton’s 1964 film One Potato, Two Potato, trying to make Starsky & Hutch minifigs at a LEGO store, and recent fanzine purchases.
We interview Pat, or D P Patricks this week, who was so enraptured by the partnership of Starsky & Hutch when it first aired that she moved out to Hollywood and got a job on the show doing legal and production research. Come listen to her memories of meeting the cast and crew, her experience of seeing the show get made, and her joy at discovering online fandom in 2014!
