Hello to everyone. I only visit here very rarely, but I’m so pleased to see that this forum is still active and buzzing with discussions about our favourite detective.
I’ll try and keep this as short as I can. I am a fan living in the UK, and I have been watching Columbo ever since my parents introduced me to it in 1997, when I was just a boy. Back then, I was partially sighted, and I watched quite a few of the episodes when they used to be repeated here on BBC, with the later episodes on ITV. I have been visually impaired all my life, and back then I still had some vision, to enjoy the episodes fully. Since then however, my remaining sight has gone and I am totally blind. Now the reason I am writing is because I am wondering if anyone knows of any sites or resources where the Columbo scripts are written out, but with stage directions included. I've noticed that sometimes when fans write transcripts of shows, extra information is also added, describing what is happening in the more visual parts. As all of you know, several Columbo episodes start off with very visual sections, with hardly any dialogue at all. Though I can remember a lot of the storylines, I often can’t remember what’s happening during these sections. I’ve seen some transcripts written up on some websites, but usually it’s just the dialogue, and no other information. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, so I can rewatch and properly enjoy the show. Thanks, Phil
