Storyline

This time Columbo has to deal with a passion crime by a sex therapist. As usual, this completely new environment to Columbo is an opportunity for him to show off more unusual talents, as well as pit his wit against an opponent who is well versed in the psychology that he himself uses so well.

Dr. Joan: Do you think less of me?
Lt. Columbo: Ma'am, I'm just a policeman. Judging people... that's all up to someone else, but I have to say that I've enjoyed our talks very much, and I think I do understand.

A Decent Columbo episode!
18 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Columbo's episodes are really quite a combination of serious, lightheartedness, good acting, an excellent cast, and drama mixed with comedy. Sex and the Married Detective casts Lindsay Crouse who is an excellent actress and does a superb job in this episode. She plays a sex therapist who discovers and learns of her lover's infidelity. She decides revenge. I found this episode to be much more entertaining than some others and still worth watching again and again. I found the interaction between Columbo and the Crouse to be the most interesting as well. Like most of Columbo episodes, one of the trademarks is to treat the audience and the suspect with intelligence rather than dumbing them down.
