Viewing Notes

The original movie that kicked off the Columbo series. I’ve watched a few of the Columbo films recently (sadly not in TMDB) and wanted to see the original series. The set starts with this film.

I like this movie but man Columbo is a dick. Kinda fun to watch these old murder mystery stories that couldn’t work today with all the CCTV and devices that would be easily lead to the killer. Probably why I enjoy these; Columbo has to be a dick to get to the truth.
