Great introduction!, :D great dialogue :D
The crime thriller Prescription: Murder marks the debut of Peter Falk as Lieutenant Columbo. Adapted from a stage play, a philandering psychiatrist attempts to get out of his marriage by committing the perfect murder, but to get away with it he'll have to get by a sly, soft-spoken homicide lieutenant named Columbo. This is a very different portrayal of Columbo than what the character would become; he's much more menacing, cautious, and direct. The film is also overly focused on the details of committing the murder; which hurts the pacing and momentum. Prescription: Murder is an interesting entry in the Columbo series, it has the raw material but doesn't quite have the formula right.
Start of it all. A great concept and this was the first one out and while not as unique as some later episodes, I love the cinematography and timelessness of it all. Classic TV.
