Yeah, you heard me. My boyfriend and I have been watching old school Columbo lately. The stuff from the early 70’s. I usually don’t get into that era of detective stuff very often, but I am loving Columbo. Glass eyed Peter Falk is incredibly charming as the “bumbling” Lieutenant, a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department.

In case you haven’t seen it, the show is basically backward, at the beginning you follow the Murderer through their whole plan and cover up. Then about a half hour in, Columbo shows up. Obviously the mystery isn’t who did it, but how is Columbo gonna figure it out and prove it.  The fun in that is that he really likes playing mind games with the suspects.  He is very good at it.

Anyways, if you are ever up at 3am and happen to see that Columbo is on, I highly suggest you watch.  Get ready for the amusement his classic line, “Oh, just one more thing,” will bring to your lives.
