|Feb-21-18|| ||technical draw: OK, it had to happen sooner or later, a bad review of Columbo, Season 5 episode 6. Our favorite detective is nowhere to be found. None of the cliches that make him so different. Instead we're treated to some convoluted Agatha Christie type mystery with an ending so ridiculous that even I wouldn't press charges.|
Crazy characters, ridiculous sub plots, and Columbo hands the detective work over to a rookie. Bad acting and incomprehensible ending. I give it a D+.
I hope this will not be the theme of future episodes because if so I will switch to watching Kung Fu (For some reason Kung Fu is slow in down loading unlike Columbo)
|Feb-21-18|| ||WannaBe: Can't find Columbo?! Isn't Columbo in Sri Lanka?|
|Feb-21-18|| ||technical draw: Ok, <WannaBe> So I made a mistake. (and I almost made it again writing below!)|
Columbo season 6 episode 2 made up for that horrendous season 5 episode 6. In 6/2 we have the old Columbo back. With his old style, humor and astuteness. And guest starring Celeste Holm. Always great to see her.
|Feb-21-18|| ||chancho: <TD> <WannaBe> is more of a Monk guy...|
|Feb-21-18|| ||WannaBe: <chancho> Don't make me go OCD on you. =))|
|Feb-22-18|| ||falso contacto: Stunning stuff these days guys. You missed my latest joke, but I laughed anyways. The hindu guy broke the question mark record. Never seen td answering so many.|

If you don't say what it is,
and the star, like this:
<bull fighting and they have all the cliches. However it stars one of my favorite actors, Ricardo Montalban.>
I don't know which episode you're
I know what you're thinking.
Why not Google?
Problem is when I Google Columbo,
I keep getting links to crime families.
Keep getting links to crime families,
the NSA starts tracking your internet usage.
Before you know it, I'll be,
diceman "The Bull" Gravano.
|Feb-22-18|| ||technical draw: Ok here's a recap.
The horrible Columbo was the season 5 episode 6 "Salute to the Commodore", yuck.
Then season 6 starts ok with episode 1 but it turns rather silly when we discover that the action takes place on a TV set of an actor playing a Columbo type detective.
In season 6 episode 2 we get back the good Columbo and a double murder. Very good work and we get too see the fainting Celeste Holm.
Now I will watch season 6 episode 3 and hopefully we have the old raincoat Columbo and not some writers with new ideas.

Go into hiding right now. Don't go back to your house to retrieve anything. (by the way, what's your address?)
|Feb-22-18|| ||technical draw: <diceman> the Ricardo Montalban bull fight episode is season 5 episode 4 "A Matter of Honor", it was so-so.|
|Feb-22-18|| ||technical draw: <falso contacto> < You missed my latest joke>|
Didn't see it. Repost it. I don't like to miss jokes.
|Feb-22-18|| ||zborris8: Hi <technical draw> The invitation has been sent for the CG Tournament I on GameKnot.|
|Feb-22-18|| ||chancho: <WannaBe> It's a jungle out there...|
|Feb-22-18|| ||technical draw: Columbo season 6 episode 3 is pretty good. They have Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet suite playing. And see if you can spot a young Jamie Lee Curtis in a bit part.|
|Feb-22-18|| ||WannaBe: Did Ricardo Montalban kill the bull? And did he say it was fine Corithian Leather?|
|Feb-23-18|| ||falso contacto: Repetir un chiste es como recalentar el asado. No importa, ya estoy haciendo otro. ¿Ustedes saben qué partes del asado se hacen incomibles cuando se enfrían?|
|Feb-23-18|| ||technical draw: <¿Ustedes saben qué partes del asado se hacen incomibles cuando se enfrían?>|
|Feb-23-18|| ||falso contacto: ¿Poco asado y muchos frijoles? No, hablando en serio, ¿qué comen un día de fiesta? El sábado o el domnigo no entro en detalles de "planificación familiar".
El tema con la tapa de asado, o con el vacío es que el animal tiene una grasa natural que cuando se enfría se endurece. Cuando lo calentás al día siguiente la grasa se satura y le da trabajo a los cardiólogos. Me salteo un paso pero se imaginan. El tipo usa el hígado a full, envejece, se le tapan las arterias y termina en la Chacarita.|
|Feb-23-18|| ||falso contacto: El asado depende de la calidad de la carne. No es un plato de cocina, es una prática ritual.|

¡Oye! Estas hablando de mi!
(tengo 50 libras (USA) de sobrepeso y la glucosa en pre-diabetes. Bueno el Lunes cumplo 69 años así que es de esperarse. De algo uno tiene que morir.)
|Feb-23-18|| ||technical draw: Speaking of Peter Falk (who I just found out was Jewish):|
"Falk was a chess aficionado and a spectator at the American Open in Santa Monica, California, in November 1972, and at the U.S. Open in Pasadena, California, in August 1983."
It says spectator and not player. However there are quite a few episodes where chess is part of a theme or a chessboard is prominently displayed.

|Feb-23-18|| ||technical draw: <WannaBe> <How does he see the board with a crook'd eye?!!?>|
He doesn't have to look at the board, he knows who's going to win from some papers in his raincoat.
