Season 2, Episode 22
An illegal alien, who witnesses a murder, refuses to cooperate with police for fear of deportation, as "The Velvet Jungle." A Mexican girl threatens to expose the illegal activities of the local chief of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, and she is soon murdered. Her roommate witnesses the killing, but can't go to police for fear of being deported. Starsky and Hutch corner one of the killers; but the government official arrives on the scene and shoots his cohort before their eyes -- claiming he actually saved their lives. In an attempt to catch the immigration official in a criminal act, Starsky and Hutch send a Latin policeman to his office in the guise of a crooked copy who wants a part of the illegal action. The time and place for the payoff is set in the city park where Starsky and Hutch are stationed in dis-guise - Hutch, in whiteface, as a mime, and Starsky, thrilling the kids, as Charlie Chaplin.

Viewers of the CBS hit Blue Bloods may feel like they've gone through a time warp when they see executive producer Leonard Goldberg's credit on the screen.

Jeers: A Starsky Isn't Reborn

Jeers to The Closer for wasting Paul Michael Glaser. I was psyched when I heard one of my childhood idols would make a rare TV appearance on another cop show, three decades after he policed the streets on Starsky & Hutch. Imagine my disappointment when Glaser was given only two brief scenes as a movie producer/murder suspect — and even those were dominated by Amy Aquino as his vengeful wife. They could've at least let him drive a Gran Torino or something.• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on or in TV Guide magazine! read more

Premise: A popular variation on Butch and Sundance, with two plainclothes cops on the prowl for bad guys with help from their streetwise informant, Huggy Bear. The stars' banter and chemistry were the show's chief appeal, backed by action-packed car-chase scenes that made red-and-white Ford Torinos all the rage. A 2004 big-screen version starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson got the music, fashion and sensibilities of the '70s just about right.
