  • The Set-Up Part 1:Not what it seems.

    This is the first two-part episode that I recall constantly from this Series.It has become my favorite eversince.I do like some of the other S&H episodes,but this episode stick out as a top favorite because of the storyline.Innocent people are being used(unknowingly) as assassins to carry out murders for an unknown organization of criminals that target individuals for assasination.The Crime Organization uses only those who have no family ties to anyone that would missed them.They would then brainwash them (using devious technechs)to convince them that targeted person was responsible for their loved ones death.Terry Nash is one of many brainwashed victims.His vision of his wifes death by two gunmen seemed real,but was all an illusion.He carries out the crime syndicates dirty work.Soon,afterward though he would contact the police,and would talk to Starsky and Hutch,and there begins the untangling of a confusing web of deceit.
