      Columbo: It’s All in the Game is rather memorable for a couple of reasons. Of course, there’s the great portrayal of the lead character by Peter Falk, but that’s constant throughout the entire history of the series. Rather, the wonder of this specific episode is Faye Dunaway appearance as Lauren Staton, who has herself a younger fellow named Nick Franco

      (Armando Pucci).

      However, all is not what it seems, and it’s not long before Nick is on death’s door. That sets Columbo on the trail of the murderer. His initial entrance isn’t one of my favorites. He’s just overly demanding and odd this time around. I love the character, but the middle of the night thing was carried too ...


      • far. I did think the pajama bit was cute.

        What drives this show is the back and forth between Columbo and the seductive Staton. It’s quite the game they play. What’s also very unusual about this show is how it ends. It’s probably the only time that Columbo doesn’t go a hundred percent with the truth of a case.

        The

        other part that I really enjoy about this show is that Doug Sheehan guest stars. He’s someone I enjoy watching a lot, and he adds some color to the parts of the show he’s in.

        This show is one of the better ones of the last few years of Columbo. It’s surprisingly unformulamatic and does what few episodes do — surprise.
