      The shows in the second season of Columbo have the teaser with clips from the show about to be seen. That wasn’t done with the first season.

      The Greenhouse Jungle is another show where even some cops don’t realize that Columbo is a lieutenant. They see the old car and the trench coat and make assumptions. It’s always fun to see their reactions when they


      discover Columbo’s identity and rank.

      Ray Milland is back. He was in a first season episode, too, only he wasn’t the villain there as he is in this show. His character is named Jarvis Goodland, and he has plans for his nephew, Tony. Tony’s played by Bradford Dillman who is one of Hollywood’s best bad guys. Oftentimes, he creeps me out with his villains.


      • Of course, he does play good guys as well, but not nearly as often as he is either neurotic or on the wrong side of the law.

        Spock’s Mrs. is in this show, too. Star Trek fans will recognize Arlene Martel, though she’s blonde with a ton of hair here versus the more polished and pointy eared Vulcan she played in one episode of the science

        fiction show. I attended a convention she was at one time, so she merits a ‘hey, it’s Arlene’ whenever I see her.

        Peter Falk’s portrayal of Columbo is perfection. As he fumbled through his notes and papers during a scene with Milland, I was chuckling. He acts so meek sometimes, when he’s anything but that.

        This is a strong story; I liked watching it a lot.
