I was watching this show as a little kid and i must admit that i have learned much from it in a good way. This is the show that can show you and what is most important teach you how to use a brain in a good, smart and a positive way. We need more shows like this. I am sick and tired of those action packed cop movies and also dont like the way other shows are made. This show shows how most complicated crimes can be solved in a very simple and cheap way. The only problem is that you need to have someone who knows how to use brains to solve crime. And Columbo is just the right man for the job!
