The weekly, 60-minute adventure series Starsky and Hutch was expanded to two hours for this episode titled Murder at Sea. Detectives Dave Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser) and Ken "Hutch" Hutchinson (David Soul) are assigned to solve a double murder. This entails their boarding a luxury liner bound for Acapulco (it's a dirty job, but somebody's got to do it). While dallying with bikinied lovelies, S and H discover that there's a syndicated drug operation being carried out on board. Paul Picerni of Untouchables fame and his stuntman brother Charles play two of the mobsters. Murder at Sea aired as the second-season Starsky and Hutch opener on October 2, 1976.
