Storyline

Dr. Bart Keppel has a very high opinion of himself, but, notwithstanding his opinion, he is being fired by Vic Norris. So he decides to plan a murder, a perfect alibi for himself and evidence against Mrs. Norris. He kills Vic while running commentary on a promotional short film. But there are bound to be some failures, even in the most perfect planning. And you can be sure that Lt. Columbo will find out these failures. Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Double Exposed!
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Columbo has to match wits with Robert Culp again in this episode. I don't know offhand how many episodes that featured Robert Culp but I remember this one. He is a scientist who specializes in mental manipulation. I couldn't think of another way to explain it. Anyway, Columbo has met his match in this episode. Robert Culp's character kills somebody who wants to destroy his professional reputation as a top scientist who helps improves sales in grocery stores and other ways. Anyway, you have to watch how Columbo catches him. Like a typical episode, he becomes interested in his line of work but does not forget the victim or the crime. It's worth noting that it's pretty sophisticated in 1973 and I would watch it again if I have too but it's not my favorite episode of his or with Robert Culp.
