      The second season of Columbo began with Étude in Black, featuring John Cassavetes as Alex Benedict. It also starred James Olsonas Paul Rifkin, Blythe Danner as Janice Benedict, Anjanette Comer as Jennifer Welles, Myrna Loy as Lizzy Fielding, and James McEachin as Billy. I list all of these because it’s an excellent cast. It’s another case of my not really being fond of any of these people as a fan, but I know that when I see them, I’m going to

      be watching a standout performance. This is especially true for the great Myrna Loy. That woman is simply marvelous to watch.

      However, what really makes this show superb is that it’s the first time we see Columbo’s basset hound. I just love that dog. He never was given a name, but what a perfect animal to pair with Columbo. It gives him an even stronger sense of family and shows there’s more going on than him wearing a trench coat ...


      • all of time. I love it when Columbo carries the dog. It’s so funny to me.

        Plus, I like that it was a rescue dog. How sweet is that for our everyday cop to save a dog whose time was up, as he told the vet. I suspect they went through more than one dog by the time Columbo was done, but it was always supposed to be this dog. What a joy for someone like me who just loves

        animals.

        The dog is in the show throughout, too. Poor Columbo quickly discovers there’s a lot of expense in being a dog owner. These are the best scenes of the show for me.

        As for the story, Cassavetes is a conductor whose been having an affair with a pianist named Jennifer Welles. When she wants more from the relationship, he kills her and tries to make it out to be a suicide. Of course, Columbo doesn’t buy it and hence, we have our story.
