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.
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 ;-) ...
