  • Other than Hill's brief presence and Columbo's bout with the modern age, there is little that I like about this outing

      Patrick McGoohan both directed and starred in Columbo: Agenda for Murder, which aired during the 1990 year when six Columbo movies were made. In this outing, McGoohan is Oscar Finch, a political guru who hopes to become the country’s attorney general after the next election. His wife is played by Penny Fuller.


      also an appearance by Arthur Hill as the Governor about to take on a campaign for the presidency and, blurring fact and fiction, a real President’s son, Steven Ford, has a small role in the movie.

      I had to chuckle when Columbo arrives at the murder scene and centers in on a FAX machine.

      • Not even his trusty sergeant had ever been near one. That technology really did boom over night, so this reaction to a FAX was very amusing. Then he tries to understand a multi-function phone. Columbo and technology is a hoot.

        Other than Hill’s brief presence and Columbo’s bout with the modern age,

        there is little that I like about this outing. I’ve never been a fan of political intrigue and that’s really what this is. It’s a story often told, where the quest for power leads to murder. Big yawn.

        I’ve watched this show a few times over the years, but really once was more than enough.
