Starsky and Hutch should never be remade. It was so good. Huggie Bear was great.

Not that #StarskyAndHutch is too precious to be remade nor do i object to gender flipping it but why not original characters? What does the half century old show add? Can anyone name any character beside the titular characters, #HuggyBear or the red & white #GranTorino? pic.twitter.com/WRUGMDcZHM

The “reimagining” of the show will cast two female actors, Sasha Starsky and Nicole Hutchinson instead of the previously portrayed male actors and throughout the series, the duo’s hard-built friendship and their excellence will be shown as they go around their off-beat Desert City solving various crimes along with unraveling the mystery behind the imprisonment of their fathers illegally due to a crime they did not commit. Though this occurred 15 years ago, the last thing they would run out of will be their enthusiasm to seek the truth.
