Trivia

The series was originally executed as following the exploits of the crime reporter wife of Lt. Columbo. But when the series couldn't capitalize on the popular earlier series, producers changed Mrs. Columbo's name to "Callahan" and soon, all references to the fictional cop were removed. See more »

Unrealistic
30 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the Columbo series, the lieutenant describes his wife's character and even physical attributes.

See Season 4: Ep. 1--An Exercise in Fatality--time index 32:10.

None of the characteristics are reflected in the Mrs Columbo series.

You might as well call her a different name, because its really not the same person.

Too bad it was branded "Mrs. Columbo". What were the directors and writers thinking??

There are just too man inconsistencies to call her the lieutenant's wife.
