i've been lured crisp!
great post! you opened my eyes to some stuff!! yay!
there is a definite change of mood between each columbo episode. they each have their own emotion that they carry along with them. the different moods of each episode certainly puts columbo in a class of its own..(or of a very select few.
and the other thingy you said about columbo reaffirming that he is 'just doing his job', and how he humbly lowers his head...and how he has to do what he has to do....Well, that was really insightful....thanks..
