Goofs

Columbo enters the murder house through the front door in a pouring rainstorm. His trousers are wet, and he's wearing a hat and using an umbrella. While he is inside, we hear thunder. Then, Columbo steps out the back door, and into bright sunshine. Perhaps it could be argued that the abrupt change is consistent with Los Angeles weather patterns, but this would not explain how there is no rainwater anywhere on the deck, on the garbage cans, or in the sand.

Great Episode!!!
4 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Columbo always has a reputation for being a very clever and witty murder mystery series. Columbo is not perfect, has instances where he is incredibly disorganized, then later his thoughts will be completely organized. This is the part of his great charisma and charm. I find him to be a very funny and likable guy. Episodes of Columbo where the Murderer seems to have all his or her bases covered seem to be the best episodes. Dabney Coleman's character seems to have committed the perfect murder in this episode "Columbo and the murder of a rock star". Dabney Coleman plays a very rich lawyer (who has NEVER lost a murder case) who is threatened by his rocker girlfriend. Of course This Rich lawyer guy kills his girlfriend, Columbo gets suspicious and of course his suspicions inevitably lead to the Lawyer! Ah but the Lawyer comes up with a last minute airtight alibi! Then Columbo proves the alibi to be false! How? Oh no you've gotta watch it to find out! I'll never tell!
