Peter Falk, whose character Columbo was among the most memorable and beloved figures in television history, has died at age 83

Falk Columbo is my all-time favorite show, so it is with great sadness I pass along this report that Peter Falk has died after battling Alzheimer's disease for several years. What are your favorite memories of Columbo episodes, or other Falk work?

Perhaps he was at his sleuthy best in Double Exposure, an episode in which he solved a murder by uncovering subliminal suggestion in a film. Also, I absolutely loved his chemistry with his long-time friend, John Cassavetes, in Etude in Black.

And, of course, there were the many appearances of Columbo's beloved car, the 1959 Peugeot. Columbocar

I have fond memories of watching Columbo reruns with my mom. She was an insomniac, and she and I often stayed up late to watch mysteries. She also helped me collect Columbo episodes on VHS, and later DVD -- which I still frequently watch ... and sometimes force my wife and kids to watch with me ;-) ...

The meteor, because of being short and is beautiful, has delimited the black lonesome nighttime sky, releases ray which that one dodges passes, although is weak, but actually nobody can disregard its existence. The life is similar to a meteor, has filled splendidly with the legend, is similar to a beautiful fable, actually whether to look like the meteor to be such short, others could not decide, ascended the sky also cannot decide, only then grasped. If wants, the meteor may also turn eternal.
