I’ve just finished the first two seasons of Columbo on the Hits channel and it was such a joy. The show itself is wonderful—the writing’s clever and charmingly hilarious, and Peter Falk is so much fun to watch.
But I think I derived even greater pleasure from the regularity at which I watched it. Not religiously as it aired, but as much as possible, first thing in the morning, every morning. That routine brought an additional level of comfort to a series that I lovingly described to Nadia as “a crime show with an uncle as the detective”.
I’m gonna miss this somewhat regular habit. Here’s hoping that the channel airs the rest of the series soon.
