  • Reflective, appropriate finale

    While there are moments in this one that could have been handled better… for instance, it could have been made with more of a sense of vengeance coming out in Hutch, all in all, this is one of the better episodes in this series. I mean, how many new ways can you think of to nearly kill off one of the lead characters? This series had a good short run, and was smartly stopped before it had a chance to become truly stale. But anyway, Paul Michael Glaser directed this one, and he did a fine job behind the camera. There were a lot of close-ups in this one that caught the nervousness, the insomnia, and the obvious affection the main characters felt for one another as they awaited Starsky‘s presumed fate. It was a very thoughtful, reflective episode and served as a fine ending to the series.
  • Starsky and Hutch is a classic TV show and Ran from 1975 to 1979.

    Sweet revenge is an OK episode that had the potential to be great. Paul directed it and I was always fond of his style, but it was wasted on this episode. The music was awful; much too happy for such a shocking episode.This should have been a shocking episode. I always wondered why Hutch never touched Starsky. His shirt is clean at the hospital( he should have been covered in blood)and that took away from the believability of this episode. Also, the ending never says how long Starsky's been in the hospital. I would have liked a more personal ending.
