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?
I recall reading somewhere that Kate said the show was written especially for her - I wonder what possessed her to own up to that!!
Could have been a good show, but Kate M isn't suited to that style of show - she's not Angela Lansbury.
Thinking about it, I think Kate got stuck in an awkward era of Hollywood - where her acting strengths and style were being superseded by a new generation of bottle blond barbies. Quite a few talented actresses of her era fell victim to this "plague".
