True Detective Is Way Better Mashed Up With Starsky and Hutch

Boy, howdy, there really isn’t anything to smile about in this season of True Detective, eh? Its vision of Southern California is pretty much wall-to-wall darkness. But as the saying goes, it’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness — so we lit a candle by throwing a bunch of True Detective footage in a blender. This week’s installment of Vulture Remix reimagines the show as a cheesy, buoyant ‘70s cop show. Specifically, ABC’s iconic Starsky and Hutch. Consider it the world we deserve.
