Mrs. Columbo Sucked!
What - you mean making a whole series that essentially ruined the whole running joke about Colombo's wife wasn't
an amazing idea?
She was... what? 20-something at the time? And she was supposed to be married to Peter Falk
Who greenlighted that thing, anyway?
Nah not really!
I'd say that it was possible but he was probably just a lowly writer then and had no power.
