Next on Just One More Thing: “Murder, a Self Portrait”

Back to the latter-day Columbo, with 1989’s “Murder, a Self Portrait.” When a famous artist kills one of the three women in his life, the “Leftenant” has to a lot of sitting in black-and-white dream sequences to nab him. Returning as guest is podcaster (Hold My Order Terrible Dresser) and writer (We Are the Mutants), Michael Grasso.

    Was doing the math. With this one in the can, there’s 5 left: Bedfellows, Conspirators, Crown, Playback, and I think Notes. Can’t wait for them all.

        I’m just glad to have a new podcast episode to look forward to.

    One thing I find interesting about the early “new” Columbo episodes is how many were written by well-established TV writers who’d never worked on Columbo before (e.g., William Read Woodfield, Jerry Ludwig, Sy Salkowitz). I seem to remember the hosts of The Columbo Podcast complaining that the writer of this episode didn’t know the format of Columbo, but, if I recall correctly, he’d written extensively for Barnaby Jones, and for at least the first season or two of that show (pre-Jedediah), viewers usually knew who the killer was and it was just a question of how Barnaby would uncover him.

      Huh, that is a fascinating take. I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen an episode of Barnaby Jones, but I’ll have to check out a few now…
