  • Columbo loses pen, catches killer

    8.0
    "Lt Columbo has dropped his pen"...lol Starts out with an overbusy director hamming it up every which way. Once Columbo shows up though, things start to cook along as usual. There is one more painfully Marnie-esque moment later on (with goofy flashbacks and an imposed red stain). For the most part though it's pretty entertaining, although it's pretty hard to root for Margaret as the "good guy." By the end the Lee Grant character seems pretty sympathetic...which I suppose was the idea all along.
