The Columbo Case Files

The Columbo Case Files continue! Work movie by movie through these first five, from 1989, with analysis and comment, plus Quirks (the 1980s … Oy!), Recurring Elements (including some new ones found in the TV Movies), Loveable Columbo (lots of references to the Missus, and new twists on his work), as well as, of course, the Quotations that show the great writing of this seminal series. Like the movies themselves, it is a worthy continuation of The Columbo Case Files series, which already covers the first seven seasons of the original episodes. So NOTE: This is the first set of TV Movies, from 1989. The five in the book are keyed to the individual DVD. Three more ebooks will follow, to work through the remaining 19 TV Movies.
