Losing his battle against Alzheimer's disease. Amazing actor. He was nominated twice for Oscars. I guess most of the younger generations know him as the Grandfather/narrator in The Princess Bride but as 5 time Emmy winning Columbo was where he really shined.

I would also love him in Princess Bride and Murder by Death. RIP Mr. Columbo.

I was basically the only kid in school back in the day who loved Columbo reruns on A&E. I loved how he said "Oh, one more thing sir/ma'am", and then pointed out a flaw in the murder plot, which would usually set off a chain of events that would end in catching the crook. Nowadays, we get graphic CGI of bullets ripping lungs apart, and entire cop shows dedicated to sex crimes or kidnapping or whatever else...but as far as actual storytelling is concerned, we have nothing on TV today in the cop genre that rivals classic Columbo.

Godspeed, Lieutenant.

Falk was many things, I wasn't a big fan of Columbo, but I loved a few of his movies - The Cheap Detective is a big favorite and so is Murder by Death. Plus, of course, Robin and the Seven Hoods. His role as the opposite to Sinatra's Robbo as Guy is fantastic and he Hams it up with glee.

That's it... RIP, Detective...

Wait, just a minute... I just thought of one more thing....

"I was in the jungle - the bush we called it - for approximately nine months... Sheldon, it was unbelievable. I saw things... they have tsetse flies down there the size of eagles. Really. In the evening, I would stand in front of my hut and watch in horror as these giant flies would pick children off the ground and carry them away.

Oh, it was an incredible sight. Peasants screaming... chasing these flies down the road, waving brooms. You can imagine the pathetic quality of this. Waving these crudely fashioned brooms at these enormous flies... as they carried their children off to almost certain death."

I hope he's making his way safely up to St. Peter. Serpentine.

I was wondering when someone would mention the criminally underrated "The In-laws". That is such a fantastic movie (the original not the re-make of course). Rest in peace Colombo.

I keep thinking this show's about to turn the corner, but this episode didn't do it for me, either. And that says a lot for me, considering how much I've loved Cleveland and Cleveland Jr. so far.
