    mustangclaire There's petrol runnin' through my veins.

    I love Columbo!! They show repeats here most Sunday mornings, early. Perfect way to start a Sunday.

    I really liked Banacek, too, with George Peppard (long before the A-Team). These were usually how-dunnits that seemed impossible until Banacek figured them out.

    I thank you from the bottom of my trench-coat.

    I could never figure out which eye was the false one..........;)

    Columbo was one of those Sunday night must see mysteries for our family. Much better than McMillan and Wife....... :p

    ...Like Bev and others-I'm long enough in the tooth to remember first run Columbo epsiodes, and he was a master of his craft...Peter Falk made that character...no-one else was fit to don the trenchcoat...

    I watched Negative Reaction, the episode with Dick Van Dyke as a photographer. You may be safe, but I'd keep an eye to the heavens to be sure.

    As I write this, I am watching Murder by the Book with Jack Cassidy. Hands down, Jack's Columbo episodes are my favorite.

    I loved watching this show with my parents, Peter Falk made the character such an icon. God, I haven't seen it in years, I should tune in again.

    FYI - I just checked and all the Columbo episodes are available for streaming on netflix.

    UPDATE - I'm not totally sure it is all the episodes but there are episodes from each season (not sure how many aired - there only seem to be 7 or 8 episodes a season)

    In the original series the Bassett hound did not have a name. Just referred to as dog. But in the spin off about his wife the dog was called Whitefang.

    I don't consider the Mrs. Columbo spinoff to be "canon." He'll always be just "dog" to me!
