Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess games.com who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life.

  saffuna: Never saw the TV series. Victoria Tennant was great in the little-known "All of Me" with Lily Tomlin and Steve Martin. A really great movie.

  diceman: <technical draw:

I was going to mention Rock Hudson but I thought better of it. No use bringing up unpleasant details of actors' past.>

I don't consider it "unpleasant"
just the truth.

Mickey Rooney had like 8 wives.
Unless you're his divorce lawyer, that's "unpleasant."

To wax philosophical a moment here, it is possible that only a truth can be unpleasant. A lie doesn't have a strong enough basis to be unpleasant. A lie can be undone, a truth cannot.

  saffuna: However a lie can travel halfway around the world before truth can get its boots on.

I just made that up.

  technical draw: <saffuna> I've heard some versions of the same saying.

I would like the talk here to remain on old TV series and not Rogoff into other areas.

I just noticed that in the Columbo episode I'm watching (the one with Mr. Spock) there's an actor who played a bad doctor in one of my favorite MI episodes called "The Town". In the Columbo episode he plays a good doctor. Maybe he's a real doctor?

No, according to the laws of metaphysics, "good" doctor and "bad" doctor cancel each other out, turning into "not a doctor at all"

Feb-18-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: <tga> You have a good point. However this being Hollywood a "bad doctor" and a "good doctor" makes an "always a doctor". They don't cancel, they add.

  optimal play: <technical draw: <optimal play> I'm watching the series in order. Right now I'm at season 2 episode 5. When I get to the college kids episode I'll post it.>

I tracked it down. It's the 1st episode of season 10

Columbo Goes to College

I checked the link you provided and it's on there.

I watched it again and it's great!

Enjoyed seeing it again so much!

In some of the episodes you have sympathy for the killer, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, but those two smarmy college punks are probably the least sympathetic murderers out of the whole series.

The way Columbo acts in a dull-witted manner and even gets a dressing down from the father of one of the punks makes the final scene, when he explains to the whole college class how the murder was committed, all the more satisfying.

He really wipes the smirks off their conceited faces!

Great stuff!

Thanks <td> for posting that link and bringing it to our attention.

  technical draw: <optimal play> You're welcome. I might just break my rule of watching the series in order and jump straight to that episode. Just like Bobby Fischer I love to watch them squirm.

Yes, that's why Jose Ferrer was arrested. Importing cigars from Cuba was illegal then.

  technical draw: Columbo Season 5 episode 3 starts making you laugh. That's because it starts with none other than Leslie Nielsen walking into a hotel room. Just thinking of all those crazy comedy he made I just couldn't stop myself from laughing.

  technical draw: I'm going south of the border in Columbo season 5 episode 4. It's about bull fighting and they have all the cliches. However it stars one of my favorite actors, Ricardo Montalban.

One thing that is used in almost all the American made bullfighting movies is calling the principal bullfighter "matador". I believe that is incorrect. At least in Spain the correct term is "torero".

Maybe <Nakosonorense> can tell me if "matador" is used in Mexico.

Feb-20-18  Boomie: It's hard enough fighting the bull around CG. You can call me a trollero.

  juan31: TD disculpa la intromisión, si, en México para los toreros se utiliza el termino "matador" generalmente cuando se habla directamente con el, y en general se les denomina "Toreros" o en singular "torero"
Feb-20-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  juan31: PD. Aunque en las notas periodisticas también utilizan, ejemplo: " el matador ( su nombre) hizo una gran faena en X lugar tal día...."

Y repito cuando algun aficionado o periodista habla con él, usan : " matador cómo vio X situación ? "
