Episode 07: Make Mine AU

What would the alternate universe look like where Starsky and Hutch ran crime instead of fighting crime? What about the AU where they’re baristas? Mermen? Wizards at Hogwarts? Join us as we take the cast of S&H on a dizzying journey of universe-hopping! Also, learn about Antonio Fargas resuming his role as Huggy in the French show Cherif, and find out what S&H has to do with the video game Don’t Starve.

Episode 01

Welcome to Me & Thee & Three — a Starsky & Hutch fan podcast. In this very first episode, your hosts — Jen, Monica, and Rachel — look at whether they are Starsky girls or Hutch girls, discuss what the show gained when it was dubbed into French, what Playgirl has to say about the titular couple, and much more.

Episode notes: a correction: near the end of the episode, Monica states that “we know Starsky is a Vietnam War vet,” when in fact all we know is that Starsky was in the army.
