Columbo Alert

Here’s a real treat for all you Columbo fans (eg me).  On Saturday, at 2:35pm Channel 5 is showing Prescription: Murder, the very first ever Peter Falk Columbo.  So, you thought Peter Falk was the only ever Columbo?  Not quite

This 1968 pilot was only one of many steps in bringing Link and Levinson’s dream to the small screen.  In all it took three pilots and 10 years to see the emergence (in 1971) of one of the most popular detective series ever.

    I notice The Wrong Arm of the Law is on tomorrow afternoon. According to the user comments on imdb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0056704/usercomments) it was filmed around your neck o’ the woods.
