Steve and Sean beak down and discuss each episode of "Columbo", one by one, and in no particular order.
The Cabot Cove Confab Podcast
Episode 70: The End
So this is it. To cap the podcast off, Steve and Sean discuss their top five and bottom five episodes in both the 70's era of "Columbo" and the 90's. They also reveal the plans for their next project!
The Bye-Bye High Sky I.Q. Murder Case (1977)
Accountant Oliver Brandt (Theodore Bikel) is threatened with exposure by his business partner for embezzling funds from their clients. Brandt executes a Rube Goldberg-esque murder scheme to murder his colleague at the home of the Sigma Society, a club for individuals with remarkably high I.Q.'s. Brandt soon finds out he may not be the smartest man in the room when Columbo is assigned to the case. Is this episode as smart as a tack? Or is it as dumb as a post?
Murder Under Glass (1978)
When affluent restaurant critic Paul Gerard (Louis Jourdan) finds himself in a pickle of a disagreement with the owner of a successful Italian restaurant, he kills the main by poisoning a bottle of wine. Columbo is hot on the case, and he's pretty sure Gerard is his murderer, but he can't figure out how the poison got into the bottle. Is this one a Michelin three star? Or is it as palatable as a gas station burrito? Listen in and find out what Steve and Sean think!
Electronics engineer Harold van Wyke (Oskar Werner) murders his mother-in-law to retain his role in the family business and to cover up his extramarital affairs. When Columbo stumbles upon the crime scene, however, Van Wyke soon realizes that it's going to take more than just some fancy videotape equipment to outsmart the policeman. Is this one worthy of the top shelf at Blockbuster? Or will you find it in the bargain bin at Target? Listen in and find out what Steve and Sean think!
Swan Song (1974)
In "Swan Song" (1974) country music artist Tommy Brown (Johnny Cash) is tired of being blackmailed by his domineering evangelical wife. He arranges a complicated murder scheme involving an airplane crash, some spiked coffee, and a parachute. Tommy's a nice fellow, despite his vices, but he keeps his cool when pursued by Lieutenant Columbo. Is this one worthy of the Grand Ole Opry? Or does it belong in the discount bin at Wal-Mart? Listen in and find out what Steve and Sean have to say!
This is such a fun podcast to listen to. I’ve been listening immediately after each episode of Columbo and love to listen to Steve and Sean breakdown the show each time. They are always funny and engaging.
Love the Podcast! Great discussion and honest thoughts about a great show!!
Great podcast! Keep up the good work!
