Trivia

Mrs. Columbo's name in the original series was rarely referred to, but it was Rose. Not Kate. Perhaps her full name was Katherine Rose Columbo and the Lieutenant merely preferred to call her Rose. See more »

Not Very Good representation
13 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Sorry, but this show didn't work at all, and a '2' is a generous vote. If you watch enough "Columbo", any time he is on the phone with her, she is given as a homemaker, not a reporter, and on top of that, she's not very bright. On "An Exercise in Fatality", she calls him at the office of the killer, and they discuss what to cook for the family guests for dinner. He then tells her what to do, i.e. call the Chinese restaurant, make the order and he would get it after work on the way home. Does that honestly sound like she has the wherewithal to find the answer to some caper? Not in my opinion, and I'm sure a majority of the readers of this would have to agree. She's just not that intelligent!
