Loved the fnal moments
24 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While I agree that "Mrs. Columbo" invariably lumbered along on a very weak plot, this episode is one of my favorites. Considering that virtually nothing in the plot is believable, it's hard to imagine it being a favorite, right? Well it is for me, and for only one reason: The little tete-a-tete at the end. As unlikely as it is that such a confab would ever take place, both actresses, Claudette Nevins and Kate Mulgrew, are wonderful. They play off each other beautifully and take an unbelievable script and fly with it.

Unfortunately, I can't say the same about Sam Groom. I guess he did the most with the script he had to work with, but I was embarrassed for him for having to say most of those lines.

I will have to say that I noticed a couple of boo-boos. In the part where Sybil puts on her mink coat, the collar suddenly jumps up after one quick cut away. Also, I think it's when Mrs. Columbo gets up to pet the sleeve of the coat, you briefly see a microphone at the top of the screen.
