    Columbo Fades into the Night

    By DannMichalski, Sep 04, 2013

    The Columbo murder mystery series comes to an end with the mediocre thriller Columbo Likes the Nightlife. When a freelance journalist is found murdered, the case leads Lt. Columbo back to a nightclub owner who's involved with an actress that the journalist was doing a story on. The acting is rather poor, and even Peter Falk seems to be phoning in his performance. The storytelling is also particularly weak, as the clues are extraordinarily obvious and the characters are underdeveloped. Additionally, the soundtrack is amateurish and uses generic club music that's extremely cheesy. Columbo Likes the Nightlife is an underwhelming crime thriller that tries to coast by on the old Columbo charm, but it's not all that compelling.moreless

    I wish the final episode was decent material

    One of those "new" episodes that is so not Columbo and can't be enjoyed really... Maybe they tried to modernize the show too much... and instead they just made lieutenant betray himself . But I'm pretty sure the case often lied in miscasting. Why invite some young, unknown and unconvincing actors? Lots of fashionable props & c**p, noise of a music... this is not how I would want the final episode to be. I'd rather they stopped on Ashes to Ashes, at least veteran actors never let it sink this muchmoreless
