Starsky & Hutch: The Complete Second Season, the five-disc extravaganza of the classic cop show is skimpy on the extras, and you have to adjust your settings to compensate for the clashing plaids, but the kicky guest stars more than make up for it: fading Hollywood queens like Joan Blondell, rising TV royalty like Suzanne Somers, even an impossibly young Jeff Goldblum. Leads David Soul and Paul Michael Glaser are less given to macho posturing than either memory or the new ”S&H” serves, and the plots are gritty, the sexuality frank, the Afros huge, and the dialogue surprisingly funny — with the exception of a cornball kidnapping episode written by a young Michael Mann.
