Columbo in “Murder Under Glass”

Is anybody else a food AND Columbo fan? I thought I knew every line if every episode by now, but I don’t recall noticing that Columbo Wasa chowhound! I’m watching it on Xfinity.

[](Murder Under Glass)

Y favorite is when Columbo stick his head into the car of the murderer about to get away, and says"I can’t let you get away with it!", and asks for a soubjse recipe. Or the one where he asks if the stuffed snails includes a bechamel, and the chef looks mighty impressed.

This was from 1978 folks, before it was such a “thing”.

Sorry. Took me a minute to fix it.


Yes, funny I am a Columbo fan and just started watching it after many years - I didn’t notice what channel but suddenly it is on again. There was one recently where there was a fancy spread left after a murder and Columbo shows up to examine the crime scene and says sorry I haven’t had lunch and scarfs down a bunch of caviar at the crime scene!


Yes! Too late to fix all my typos!


I just remembered! That’s the one with the subliminal message guy!

“Double Exposure”.

How about the one where Columbo helps out on the cooking show?

“,Columbo Really Loves Food!”


And let’s not forget he’s no snob—- he loves chili from a greasy spoon.
