I asked Mrs Tach at the end of the art dealer ep, (quite excitedly), if she recognised anyone in the credits. She said no, but I noticed one Steven Bochco as a Story Editor. Amazing where really hugely successful people in the entertainment biz have worked.

Well, I watched Blueprint for Murder yesterday, and it was pretty well done. It could have used a few "modern" adjustments however, like adding some suspenseful music (not classical ), also, there was a 30 second part that was complete silence. That was kinda awkward, they shoulda added some music there too. But, for a movie of the 70's, it was good. I liked how they didn't show the murder, so that you could think he was really hiding somewhere if you wanted, but I figure he was really dead the whole time. They kinda take the fun out of it by showing who killed him right at the beginning, but I still liked the process, like Columbo acting kinda silly the whole time, but yet he was able to make an analysis from small things like that the music was changed to classical in the victim's car, when he only liked country.

Overall, I give it a 7/10.

I have to admit I watched & enjoyed the show but the Mrs her all time hero.If you even thought about getting in between her & watching Columbo you better have made sure that your life insurance was paid up dead meat.

Yeah, probably. If you go to www.superbowl.com, the game prediction is that the Steelers will win

well i'm happy to see you're on the right side of the fence on this one drf. that one episode is kind of unique in that it doesn't actually show the murder. pretty much all the rest do. the classic music was needed to provide a clue. watch another one. you have one disc so there is another episode on there. it will be even better--no foolin

P.S. please don't hi-jack this thread with that superbowl crap--100% columbo talk that's it!

Actually, that was the last disc in the set, and only had 1 episode. And I had to return it to the library yesterday.

I mean, there were moments when there was complete silence... that's what I mean they should add suspenseful music to.

I wish all of them didn't show the murder, but oh well!
