    Columbo is great because he's always the opponent of bougie murderers.

    Like, if Gwyneth Paltrow tried to commit the perfect murder at Goop headquarters, Columbo would take her down.

    See now I want Columbo to ask Gwyneth about her vagina rocks

    He dresses like a guy who knows how to be comfortable.
    Columbo's always taking those dad-gum whipper-snappers down a peg or two.

    That's Matlock, isn't it? Columbo isn't so much about catching young people as he is catching smug rich people.

    Looks kind of like a basset hound if you kinda squint, and that is adorable.

    Really though, I've only played the boardgame:
    http://www.geekyhobbies.com/columbo-detective-game-board-game-review-and-rules/

    Pretty sure you got away with murder and assassinated all the other players if you collected your character's own cards.

    Law and Order: Criminal Intent is a decent successor to Columbo. Follows the same basic ‘howsolveit’ plotline.

    And the two detectives actually mesh well, instead of the constant bickering that accompanies these type of shows.

    Now, after finishing Disco Elysium, I feel the strong need to watch Columbo, Mindhunter AND Hot Fuzz.

    Im sure it will all help me during second playthrough!

    Columbo is also the ultimate Wife Guy detective, a fact which is in no way impacted by the possibility that his wife might not be real

    According to the attempted spin-off series, Columbo's wife was Captain Kathryn Janeway.

    Joe Friday walks into an electronics store.

    He looks around for several minutes before the employee approaches him, asking if there's anything she can help him find.

    Better

    I never got on with Morse, and his informed flaw of alcoholism that never seemed to affect anything and the way that you could tell which woman dunnit by whether he fancied them or not

    Endeavour was good, though, mainly because Roger Allam is in it and he has a voice like sexy treacle
