      All good things must eventually end and such is the case for the much beloved, Lieutenant Columbo. After decades of solving murders, the very last movie was aired in 2003. Columbo Likes the Nightlife is the swan song for the rumpled raincoat-clad detective. It’s the last time we see that unassuming demeanor.

      Knowing that makes watching this show a bit sad.

      It remains sad when you consider the talent that has appeared on Columbo over the years and the production crews, including the directors. This last edition should have featured some awesome folks. Nothing against Matthew Rhys and Jennifer Sky, but they are hardly Robert ...


      • Culp and Janet Leigh. It just felt downcast to know this was a B-cast contributing to the end of an iconic treasure.

        A couple other random thoughts about this finale to the series:

        –Columbo climbs a tree, with the help of a ladder. It’s a moment, but it made me chuckle.

        –The disposal of the body

        was superb. I am at least glad that this story had something unique and special that wasn’t just a rehash of stories seen elsewhere. I thought this part of it was great.

        Columbo was a great series, and while the above tidbits were nice, this was a sub-par outing, especially for the final episode.
