In this episode of not-quite-Me and Thee and Three, Monica and MatSir interview Molo and talk about the inspiration behind stories, the things we see in the characters, and the way the fandom has changed.

Me & Thee & Thirsty 03: Novelty Soda

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.

In Your Mother’s Kitchen… In Duluth!

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.

Gentle Loving Psychiatrist

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!

Starsky is Driving. Hutch is Turned On.

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!

Episode Notes:

This was our favorite screen direction from the Gillian script.
