Do you have a detective show you like you to watch. If so what's your fav detective show and why? Any particular episode?
I've been watching old shows on the likes of ITV4 through the years. During school breaks when I was younger I use to watch Quincy, where the gimmick was almost, always, an evil company doing some bad shit, and he's the only one who knows what they are up too. They make him a playboy character, even though he looks like a elderly person. It was average, but it had a memorable opening.
But generally, it seems Columbo when it's at it's peak truly is great Solid writing, and a great gimmick of seeing whodonit as the opening sequence, and Columbo pretending to be a clown when he's actually as sharp as a razor. It's a gimmick that never ceases to get old. Not all the episodes are on point, but by and large it's mix of humour, gimmicks and seriousness works in a lovely cocktail to fill a bored afternoon.
Make me a perfect murder is probably my favourite episode/tv-movie Watching Trish Van Devere squirm then desperately scramble to hide her murder weapon is more tense than the last 20 MCU movies. And then you learn Columbo knew all all along, Mah gawds.
