One of my favorite shows on TV was “Starsky and Hutch” (1975-79). Each week, I'd grab a bottle of Faygo Fruit Punch and sit down to an action-packed hour of crime-solving. I even kept a diary of dialogue exchanges between characters (hence the title of this column).
The crime-fighting duo (played by David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser) received help from their snitch Huggy Bear, who was portrayed by Antonio Fargas. In celebration of Fargas' birthday today (born in 1944), what do you remember about this show?

3. David Soul's live-in love at the time co-starred in a few episodes. Can you name her?
4. What was the make and model of Starsky's car?
5. In the episode “Starsky's Lady,” what happened to Starsky's girlfriend?
