  • Notes

    • This second pilot, along with the first pilot "Prescription: Murder" are considered separate TV movies, and had not been included in the syndicated and cable packages of Columbo reruns, and are therefore the rarest episodes to be broadcast. In the summer of 1994, ABC aired weekly reruns of the revived series on Thursday nights. When they ran out of episodes to show, ABC ran these two 20 year-old pilots, as well as the then 13 year-old two hour pilot for Mrs. Columbo, as "new" (or at least relatively new) movies.
