Wow... two greats gone in one day. I've just heard the news that Peter Falk, best known around the world as the legendary but lovable Lieutenant Columbo has passed away at the age of 83. Peter's role as Columbo established him as a firm favourite... and is certainly one of TV's most famous and legendary detectives. I can imagine that had they had him on their respective show... CSIs Gil Grissom, Mac Taylor and Horatio Caine's jobs would have been a lot easier.
Never mind the wife.... I am a big fan. Rest in peace, Lieutenant... and thank you for the wonderful memories and years of entertainment.
