Kate Columbo, the elusive wife of the famous L.A. homicide detective, mother of their loving little daughter, hard-working reporter and master snoop in her own right, overhears the neighbor plotting ...
With his rumpled raincoat, ever-present cigar, bumbling demeanour and Sherlock Holmesian powers of deduction, disarmingly polite homicide detective Lieutenant Columbo took on some of the most cunning murderers in Los Angeles, most of whom made one fatal, irrevocable mistake: underestimating his investigative genius.

Inspired by true events, follows the hardships and professional challenges of female doctors who decided to open a new medical center, Women's Medical Arts, in response to health care system not addressing many problems of female patients.
While the show was aired under many alternative titles, only the second season of the show was officially renamed from "Mrs. Columbo" to "Kate Loves a Mystery" and all the references to "Columbo" were removed. The storyline explained this a bit by having Kate divorce Columbo. Therefore, it is somewhat unclear whether season two is just the second season of "Mrs. Columbo" or a separate sequel series.

Hi, I absolutely love watching Columbo it's been a family favourite for years. I love the character and the epsiodes are watchable again and again.
Now like everyone I always hoped to see Mrs Columbo, mainly out of curosity.
I have bought the Fith Season on DVD today and in that is a Mrs Columbo episode. I had no idea a series - spin-off from Columbo was ever made. I was at first glance a bit shocked as she is nothing like the Mrs Columbo I imagined. I didn't really think she would be old but older and more homely looking. The Mrs Columbo I have watched was average to below average. It is not on the same level as Columbo series. I actually found it really odd the way they make her come across like a female columbo as it doesn't really work. I know people pick-up each others characteristics of their husband/wife but this was just really odd.
She also gave no clue in that she was onto the person. It was really odd. At least you could see things ticking over in Columbo's face and going along with things. With this episode of Mrs Columbo it seemed really far-fetched.
It just didn't gel to me or come across as being realistic.
I actually think although people were curious, after so many episodes of Columbo it should have remained that Mrs C never appeared and everyone then kept their view of Mrs C or at least what feels like it's realistic enough to be.
Overall, I won't be going in search of the Mrs C series but as far as the Columbo series - they still rock!
