      Murder Is a Parlor Game is the second episode of Mrs. Columbo, a well intended but misguided attempt to capitalize on the Columbo crime drama. While Peter Falk was nowhere to be found, his car is in the opening credits and his basset hound is

      present in an episode here and there during the first season.

      Starring as Mrs. Columbo was Kate Mulgrew. Mulgrew is a very capable actress, and she is good as a investigative journalist. She just wasn’t believe as the wife of Lieutenant Columbo. They should have made this a completely separate series. It probably would have gone on for 5 or 6 years.

      This episode has some lighthearted moments, even during the murder and immediately afterwards. The music is a bright staccato and it makes you want to laugh.

      It’s no secret who the guilty party is, it’s just a matter of getting to the truth.

      Ian Abercrombie guest starred and was appropriately dastardly, but the best guest star was Donald Pleasance. Sometimes that man can bore me, but at other times, like this, he’s

      almost enchanting. I really enjoyed watching him deal with a variety of obstacles throughout the story. Pleasance made the character more complex than he really was. It was great.

      This was definitely one of the best, maybe even the best, episode of the Mrs. Columbo short-lived series.
