Apple and Sony reviving the 1970s on iTunes

Apple has agreed to distribute episodes of several Sony Pictures Television shows--including Charlie's Angels and Starsky and Hutch--on iTunes.

Feathered hair and Gran Torinos are coming to iTunes.

A 1976 Gran Torino, just like Starsky's. Dig it.

Apple has cut a deal with Sony Pictures Television to sell episodes of classic TV shows like Starsky and Hutch and Charlie's Angels on the iTunes store. The shows will be available for the standard $1.99 alongside other Sony shows that haven't quite reached classic status just yet, including Til' Death and Rules of Engagement.

Neither of the modern film remakes of those two 1970s classics are available yet on the iTunes Store, depriving customers of making side-by-side comparisions of Cameron Diaz and Farrah Fawcett. While we won't go there, we would like to state for the record that Snoop Dogg was born to play Huggy Bear.
