Another solid outing for Columbo. Here a woman murders her controlling brother and emerges with a new sense of freedom and confidence to take control. Always great to watch Leslie Neilson in serious roles, he could do it all.

The Columbo murder mystery Lady in Waiting is an entertaining and clever thriller. In order to break free of her overbearing brother Beth Chadwick kills him and attempts to make it look like an accident, but while tying up loose ends Lt. Columbo starts to suspect that the accident was actually a murder. Susan Clark and Leslie Nielsen lead the cast and deliver strong performances; Clark in particular has a lot of charisma and plays well off of Peter Falk. However, there are some odd directing choices that detract from the storytelling. Despite and few weaknesses, Lady in Waiting is an engaging crime drama.

Another entertaining Columbo. The sister of the victim who Columbo is trying to bust is a little unstable to begin with. This definitely adds to the fun as we watch Columbo question her time and again about those "loose ends". Her explanations get worse and worse. Good stuff!

Starts up as a "sympathy for the devil" piece, but ends up as a "Oh god, arrest her ass already" episode. Notice Leslie Nielsen who will reappear a couple of seasons later as a cia agent. Some career change eh?

On outoa nahda Leslie Nielsen vakavassa roolissa. oon nahny hanet kerran aikaisemminkin vakavassa roolissa, mutta silti tuntui oudolta. Eniten silti ihmetytti se, etta han naytti lahes tasmalleen samalta kuin nyt reilu 35 vuotta myohemmin. liekko syntynyt tuon nakoisena.

Season 1 Episode 5. Always having her life controlled by her family, Beth snaps and kills her brother after he threatens to fire a man she has fallen in love with at work. Making it look like an accident to Columbo, she seems to be getting away with it until her boyfriend (Leslie Nielsen) starts to get unsettled by her new changes now she's a 'free' woman.

Good entry to the Columbo-series with Susan Clark as one of its best villains. At first you sympathize with her, before her new arrogant behavior turns sympathy into hate. Eventually you can't wait for the ending when Columbo will finally give her what she's got coming for her.
