Super short one this week but I’ve always subscribed to the “something is better than nothing” approach.

Episode 33: Columbo.

Columbo is an American television series starring Peter Falk as a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department.

Columbo is a friendly, verbose, disheveled police detective of Italian descent, whose trademarks include wearing a rumpled, beige raincoat over his suit, and smoking a cigar.

He is consistently underestimated by his suspects, who are initially reassured and distracted by his circumstantial speech, then increasingly irritated by his pestering behaviour.

Despite his unprepossessing appearance and apparent absent-mindedness, he shrewdly solves all of his cases and secures all evidence needed for a conviction.

His formidable eye for detail and relentlessly dedicated approach, though apparent to the viewer, often become clear to the killer only late in the story line.
