Revived by ABC after eleven years' dormancy, the popular detective series Columbo proved so successful in its revitalized version during the 1988-1989 season that the network commissioned five more movie-length Columbo installments for the following year. Peter Falk of course was back in harness as Lt. Columbo, the LAPD's sloppiest and shrewdest homicide detective. The first episode for the property's ninth season on the air (including its seven years on NBC in the 1970s) is "Murder, a Self Portrait", starring Patrick Bauchau as a famous artist who turns murderer when his romantic misadventures (namely, three different women in three different cities) catch up with him. Next is "Columbo Cries Wolf", wherein the rumpled detective gambols in the rarefied world of "men's magazines" to solve the disappearance of a female editor and to trap a well-hidden killer. Patrick McGoohan, who showed up in several of the 1970s Columbo episodes, returns as a scheming politico who arranges a murder as the first step to the Vice Presidency in "Agenda for Murder." The best-known episode this season is "Rest in Peace, Mrs. Columbo," in which our detective hero embarks upon an apparent vendetta to solve the reported murder of his wife (whom we never saw back in the NBC days, and whom we don't see in this episode either!) This classic episode is followed by "Uneasy Lies the Crown," a puny title referring to the villain of the piece, a homicidal dentist (James Read). And in "Murder in Malibu," a best-selling author of romantic novels is murdered by her faithless lover (Andrew Stevens), whose well-known wandering eye proves to be his undoing.
Columbo solves another one.

Been loving watching the old tv movies without having to find them in TV Guide. Only detective show, that I can recall, where you know who done it and how and get to see the murderer sweat while he investigates.

This completes my Columbo collection for the entire years it was on TV.
Some of the best episodes with all star casts. All of them were two hour shows which is more to enjoy. Columbo was the best detective solving what seemed to be the perfect murder. There's no way you can get away with murder if Lt Columbo was on the case. Loved it when he said "just one more thing". That drove the criminal nuts by the end of solving the case. Thank Peter Falk for giving us Columbo. You are missed..

These are short movies made after the Columbo series went off television. They have several years of these available.
