It's funny judging old shows/movies by today's standards. Murder, mayhem, crime scenes -- okay. But then
He's smoking at his desk!! (or the crime scene)
He pinched the secretary's butt!!
He told an ethnic joke!!
O the humanity!
I used to love Colombo, especially the way no one ever saw Mrs Colombo even on the special where they went on a cruise. It did get tiresome after awhile b/c it was so formulaic.
Btw, for comic genius check out the original The In-Laws w/ Peter Falk and Alan Arkin.
Remakes always suck. Proved that again last night watching the 1990s version of The Taking of Pelham 123.
I have to agree with you about Pelhem. The original was way better.
On the other hand, I really preferred the 2001 version of "Ocean's Eleven" - I saw the 1960 version afterwards, and I really didn't care for it. I don't think I would have sat all the way through it, if I hadn't seen the 2001 version - I kept waiting for the action to start. :shrug: And I thought the ending of the 1960 version was really stupid. :p
