Reactions and Review: Issue 1

[Love and Thou]: This is a story about secrets. Hutch takes off in the middle of questioning and Starsky's bound and determined to find out why. But will Hutch's revelation destroy their partnership?... When truths come to light, it complicates things, but it also brings to the surface a couple of truths that Starsky's left long-buried, too. Will they both come to terms with the fact that the partner they thought they knew was hiding things about themselves? It's about trust and figuring out if what they have is worth fighting for.[1]

[Like Chinese Whispers]: Hutch's nephew came for a visit and he let loose a little secret that Hutch was keeping under wraps. Starsky's not sure he even knows his partner anymore. Why would Hutch keep this secret from him? Why couldn't he be trusted?... A case of gay-bashing makes everything more complicated. Who are we, really? And who can we trust? It's a question they must ask themselves if they want to move forward.[2]
