In Which I Assume There Is a _Columbo_ Prequel Somebody’s Working On

I don’t envy the people working on the Columbo prequel, other than that I assume they’re getting money for work. But they have to be glad of one thing. Any time someone complains about how we don’t need to know Columbo’s origin story, we know how he turns out, they can just glare intently back and point to the name of the intellectual property. It’s something the poor folks doing the reboot of Cool Million can’t fall back on.

  1. There’s a reboot of “Snoop Sisters” in the works with neither of them played by Angela Lansberry. Both sisters will be played by Snoopy with Charlie Brown playing Bert Convy. Please watch out for “Snoopy Sisters”, won’t you?


  2. I have a Columbo query for you…outside of the usual a) It was important to the plot, Or b) Killers do stupid things under pressure, does “Any Old Port in the Storm” give any explanation of why Carseeni turns off the AC in his wine cellar? If anything I’d think he’d want it on so no-one smelled his brother’s corpse.


    1. I’m not sure but wasn’t the air conditioning turned off to make sure the air didn’t circulate, so his brother could suffocate? I admit this is one of those episodes where the scheming gets too complicated for me to follow.


    1. I find from looking up reviews that a lot of people aren’t sure what the point of the air conditioning was, so it’s not just us who are confused and making guesses. Also someone pointed out that the bit where Columbo finds the temperature in the paper for the day before the killing, and then the day it happened, implies something like a 60 degree Fahrenheit swing in 24 hours and while that’s not physically impossible, it’d be remarkable enough that people would mention it.
