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.

Sorry, but this show didn't work at all, and a '2' is a generous vote. If you watch enough "Columbo", any time he is on the phone with her, she is given as a homemaker, not a reporter, and on top of that, she's not very bright. On "An Exercise in Fatality", she calls him at the office of the killer, and they discuss what to cook for the family guests for dinner. He then tells her what to do, i.e. call the Chinese restaurant, make the order and he would get it after work on the way home. Does that honestly sound like she has the wherewithal to find the answer to some caper? Not in my opinion, and I'm sure a majority of the readers of this would have to agree. She's just not that intelligent!
