Starsky & Hutch Versus The Dragon: Part 1
In the first season episode "Terror On The Docks," a series of robberies, and the slaying of a fellow police officer, lead Starsky and Hutch to question Ezra, a former fence.
Inside this grand, Victorian mansion, the two detectives find themselves surrounded by a collection of occult objects and images.
Chief among these is a dragon, perched on his mighty pedestal, beside a flaming torch.
Watch out, Starsky! Behind you!
Suddenly a minotaur appears, clad in solemn black robes. Perhaps the famous Greek historian Plutarch got his facts wrong, and Theseus did not kill the dreaded Minotaur of Crete? Or perhaps it is Dario Agger, C.E.O. of the Roxxon Energy Corporation, who seals a nefarious pact with the dark elf Malekith of Svartalfheim in THOR Issue 6? Could it be the minotaur from Atlantis who guarded the Crystal of Kronos in the Doctor Who story "The Time Monster"?
All the two detectives know is that they'd rather be back in their red-and-white Gran Torino, than facing down a dragon and a minotaur! But then, wouldn't you?
