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.

Quotes

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.

Delicious irony and retribution
23 June 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

The crime itself is the show here, and Lindsay Crouse is a revelation as the betrayed and mocked sex therapist who exacts delicious revenge on faithless creep, Stephen Macht. Macht, for his part, is equally marvelous as the slimy lover. All the characters are fascinating in this exploration of how emotion distorts the ultimate game of the mind. This is one of my three favorite episodes of all time.
