It always amazes me that Paul Michael Glaser never became poz. His wife had to have been poz a good 5-10 years before she learned of her status. I guess it goes to show how difficult it is for a straight guy to get the virus from a poz woman.
Paul Michael Glaser was the stuff of many a wet dream/masturbatory session when I was younger. Still hot in my opinion.
David Soul had BDF, but that photo in r2's link shows that Glaser was a real meat man.
PMG in red long johns in this clip starting at the 1:34 mark from S&H really is the stuff of wet dreams. It's a wonder it got pass the censors. And then Starsky and Hutche's heavenly gay moment at 3:02 seals the deal.
R3 David Soul is 69, on his fifth marriage and now British. All things considered, he doesn't look too bad.
S&H fans take heed - if your cable provider carries the channel COZI, they're putting the show on their schedule in June.
I loved this show. I think this show started me on the road to enjoying slash; they were so handsy and their love was obvious.
Great clip, r7! Thanks for finding and posting that.
Lots of behind the scenes BJs
[quote]I guess it goes to show how difficult it is for a straight guy to get the virus from a poz woman.
For assorted mysterious reasons, HIV has rarely been transmitted from women to men in the Western Hemisphere. In Africa it's MUCH more common. Could be different strains of the virus, could be the high rate of uncircumcised men in Africa; nobody knows exactly why.
Who was writing for this show -- closeted gay men who wanted to "sneak" depictions of man-love on TV in a way that got past the censors? Well, they did it. These guys were pure homoerotic bro-love; it's mind boggling.
I know S&H is appreciated by flashers but I w
onder if gay men saw this show for the man love bonanza it was or as just another buddy cop show.
Fan favorite was shown today - "The Fix". It's a true gem; Hutch is shot up with heroin by the bad guy (Robert Loggia!). Starsky rescues him and lovingly nurses him thru cold turkey detox.
Much petting, stroking, hugging and loving looks are exchanged during this ordeal.
Paul Michael Glaser said that he carried some kind of gene where it was hard for him to get infected, or something to that effect. I'm sure there's more info if you google it.
Don't know if Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul were fucking, but Starsky and Hutch DEFINITELY were.
Goddamn auto correct; that should be slashers not flashers.
Where's the cold turkey scene in THE FIX? I just scrolled through the episode and didn't see the nursing back to health part.
Cody and Nick on Riptide sure were.
They made me gay.
Check again R20. Did you not see Starsky cradling Hutch on the bed in Huggy's spare room; see him holding him and wiping the sweat off of him? Helping him to drink some coffee?
Also, wait until the end of the episode. Hutch climbs down off the fence (where he jumped to escape a speeding car). As soon as his feet hit the ground, he throws himself into Starky's arm for a life affirming hug.
See the clip from Youtube...
R14, the 70s was a far more liberal time than now. I was a teenaged straight girl and I recognised Starsky and Hutch for what it was. Gay men would've rolled their eyes that you even had to ask.
In my country we had overtly gay characters, in relationships, in some of our TV dramas, and none of them were doing half of what S&H were.
I loved this movie, OP! Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson were actually funny. And Vince Vaughn too!
R23, here's the full episode of THE FIX. I don't see those scenes anywhere in this episode, but they are really emotional scenes nonetheless. If I missed them, then my bad.
Of COURSE there was homoerotic gay subtext. Intentional but in a time when you simply flew it all under the radar (barely) and that, somehow, made it all the more titillating. Clueless frau and straight morons saw it as just a buddy buddy show. People with brains saw the subtext.
I think Hutch was the top.
They were both hot. I loved the homoerotic blonde/brunette combos of the late '70s/early '80s (Bo and Luke Duke were another prime example).
Isn't it funny how it's almost 40 years later and they still won't allow subtext to transform into text?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
