With Columbo, you can't go wrong!
26 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am one of the biggest Columbo fans. I just love Peter Falk and his most famous character, Lieutenant Columbo. In this one, Dabney Coleman plays a wealthy corrupt attorney who kills his rock star girlfriend and sets her male lover with the crime. We don't actually see the crime since it's not Columbo's style to show a victim in a degrading matter. We are only given hints of what he does to her. It's fine by me. Columbo episodes are always tastefully done rather than carelessly graphic. What makes Columbo episodes so entertaining is the empathy for the victims regardless of judgment. Dabney Coleman as a popular LA criminal defense attorney tries to outsmart Columbo but fails. No criminal is smart enough to beat Columbo.
