Starsky & Hutch is a timeless classic that set the standard for the rest of the "buddy" cop shows that were to follow. David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser made the show and worked harder than most to achieve quality in what they did, and it showed. They were extremely dedicated and gave it their all for the show and the fans. Plus, the stunts and sometimes physical risk they took for the show probably wouldn't even be allowed today. David Soul injured himself in the pilot episode when he bounced on the roof of his car, a decision he made, just to improve the scene! They fought for better scripts and even got into directing some of the episodes. You gotta love those guys!
