Re: Which Episode Would You Watch?

Guess I missed that. All I remember from the shipyard was a bunch of yelling over background construction noise. Yet another oddity from Last Salute.

Re: Which Episode Would You Watch?

Oh, man, that's a tough question.

I think I'd have to go with TROUBLED WATERS. It's always seemed like such a "fun" episode - the cruise ship, the ocean, the nightclub, Rosanna Wells singing "Volare" for 9 minutes, Columbo throwing stuff overboard and running up and down the Crew's Stairway. Maybe the most "on location" film of the entire series (although BY DAWN'S EARLY LIGHT is probably right there, too) Loved the interplay between Columbo and Mr. Danzinger, as well.

9 mins of that blasted song was way too much. That subject has come up here on this forum many times.

Re: Which Episode Would You Watch?

Almost as bad as the endless, boring magic
act that opens NOW YOU SEE HIM.
The curse of the two hour shows

Re: Which Episode Would You Watch?

Watching some of the TV magic to create the magic act in Now You See Him, is hilarious especially the lady quite obviously holding the bunch of flowers below table height to then magically appear.

As for the one I'd most enjoy watching as described in the first post, it would have to be Make me a perfect murder. Yes it has a few faults but for some reason I really enjoy the relationship between Columbo and Kay.

MAKE ME...is one I never rewatch!
Weak script, but I know what you mean about that relationship

Re: Which Episode Would You Watch?

Yeah, I know what you mean about the script but for some reason I really enjoy it as a whole.

I could love with out the 5 minutes of filler watching the dancing oscilloscope screens and George C Scott but I'm always entertained by the episode
It's almost as if the murder is the less important aspect of the plot.
