Yes, and the episode "Identity Crisis" guest starring (and directed by) Patrick McGooghan has Intelligence agents involved in it as well as a few nods to The Prisoner. Hell., Columbo even meets The Director!
Yes, it's great. I used to post on the Fan Forum on that site as the member 'Son of A Gun'. I hope to return to posting duties there soon as I'm going through the Columbo series on DVD again. :)
Good one! Only you could come up with that one, TF! :))
I thought so, but new to me at least!
Interestingly, Peter Falk as Columbo actually refers to his glass eye in the late episode 'A Trace of Murder' (1997) by saying "Three eyes are better than one", as the killer (a CSI type) is coming along with him to "help out".
the rat pack.
Sinatra was old blue eyes
dean martin was old red eyes
and Sammy Davis jr was old one eye.
Or, a black Columbo or a gay Columbo or whatever.
Just as Sherlock Holmes is constantly being reinvented, there should always be a Columbo for the times.
Yes, just like Bond. That would be nice to see.
No, not even in 'Rest in Peace, Mrs Columbo' (1989). There was a really dire series called Mrs Columbo though that starred a young Kate Mulgrew.
There are two episodes as extras on some of the Columbo DVDs. I watched one of them - not too great. I believe that it only lasted one season.
And an episode with Robert Culp:
Indeed - it would be called "damage limitation" in today's parlance, and for good reason, too.
Yes, I noticed those similarities too in the Shatner episodes. I just recently watched 'Columbo Likes the Nightlife' too and thought it was good - a modern updating of the series.
Yes, that was a real shame. The 70th episode. It says more about today's TV executives than it does about Columbo though. It was originally titled 'Hear No Evil'; I missed out on the name change I'm afraid!
Agree, Likes the night life was a vast improvement on the poor Murder with too many Notes with Billy Connolly.
I agree with this assessment too. It was disappointingly a rather weak episode, the novelty of having Billy Connolly in it aside. Many viewers failed to understand the abrupt ending to the episode too. I believe that it was filmed in 1999 although it was not shown on TV until 2001, hence Falk's aging. I thought that 'Columbo Likes the Nightlife' was a return to form. I also really liked the third from last episode 'Ashes to Ashes' with Patrick McGooghan.
Yes, do you mean 'Ashes to Ashes'?
