  • A "Columbo" killer tries to outsmart Jake and the Fatman.

    9.0
    Robert Culp was a three-time murderer on "Columbo" and his episodes are among the best in that classic series. Culp is a magnetic TV personality - whether he's a good guy ("I Spy") or in this case, a bad guy, he always delivers a great performance.



    This episode is cut from the "Columbo" cloth as we watch the killer commit his crime and the rest of the episode is spent figuring out how he did it. William Conrad and Robert Culp play off of each other very well...much like Culp and Peter Falk, you can see Culp's frustration growing as his slightly clueless interrogator continues peppering him with seemingly inane questions.moreless
