The problem with “No Time To Die” and “Undercover” is that, because they are based on Ed McBain’s 87th Precinct novels, they change Columbo’s character. Perhaps as standalone TV movies they would be fine. But as Columbo episodes they don’t even remotely follow the established formula. The cat and mouse battle of wits is gone and instead, Columbo is kicking in doors and smacking goons around. It doesn’t fit.
