Columbo is the type of investigator usually misjudged by both his co-workers and of course by those confident that they can get away with murder. Nevertheless, although Columbo does seem to be rather disorganized and appear to approach cases superficially, he succeeds in solving even the most well thought out murders. Columbo's success relies on the fact that he pays close attention to every detail and despite first impressions he is a scrupulous guy. The series is innovative due to its reversed cop format: almost every episode begins revealing how the crime was committed and unveiling also the identity of the perpetrator. The action focuses on the killer, whose guilt is known, and shows the evolution of the ensnare process of the culprit, until his final arrest.
Columbo began its history in 1971 when it appeared in the series that was broadcast on NBC's Sunday Mystery Movie program, occurring every three weeks. The show was the most popular series of three, the others mystery series being McCloud and McMillan and Wife.
Columbo never had a first name and was different from other detectives in the TV series. He looks like a 'flood victim', said Falk. You feel sorry for him. Apparently he does not see anything, but he actually sees everything. Behind his disheveled appearance there is a quick mind that works and works.
NBC canceled the series in 1977. In 1989 ABC offered it the possibility broadcast in two-hour format but only once or twice per season. The film continued until the 90s. Columbo appeared in a large number of countries.
The detective's trademark is an old raincoat that actor Peter Falk actually bought for himself. After using the raincoat for 25 consecutive years during the TV series, it became so old that a new one had to be used.
Detective Columbo is perhaps the most well know movie character that was never a classic. Instead, Columbo was always the spook with a glass eye, a cape, always a cigar, and lots funny or annoying questions, but with a quick mind ready to solve any mystery.
