A true story about Elizabeth Bayley Seton, the first American to ever be canonized as a saint by the Pope. She took up Catholicism after the death of her rich husband, fought bigotry and opened free catholic schools and orphanages.
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.

I love "Mrs. Columbo". I know mine is a minority opinion, but the real reason I love this show is because I adore Kate Mulgrew. And I adore her mainly because she played the first - and best - Mary Ryan, on "Ryan's Hope". I enjoyed these mysteries, light, fun, frivolous - seventies television was formulaic but the formulas were soothing and enjoyable! The writing is always fine, direction sturdy, and solid strong guest stars - I think the show would have been better off not saying she was "Mrs. Columbo", since it was not believable that Columbo's wife would be this much younger than he is (Kate Mulgrew was only in her mid-twenties).
So this show is a light way to pass some time and just as enjoyable as any other formulaic mystery show from the 1970's, if not has well known or loved. (:
