Air date: Dec 9, 1990

Where Columbo (Peter Falk) goes, can murder be far behind? In Columbo Goes to College, the rumpled TV sleuth shows up on campus as a guest lecturer on criminology. His visit coincides with the machinations of two rich and arrogant frat boys (Justin Rowe and Cooper Redman) who utilize "remote control" to kill the professor who's threatened to expel them. In the tradition of Compulsion, the snide young killers flaunt their intellectual superiority before the seemingly ingenuous Columbo. No wonder these boys were on the verge of flunking out--they'd never bothered to check up on Columbo's previous track record for convictions. Outside of the novel setting, Columbo Goes to College is a by-rote rehash of an old formula; even Peter Falk seems bored.

Critic Reviews for Columbo Season 10

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Director Jeffrey Reiner and writer Michael Alaimo deftly weave together the show's traditional elements with a contemporary setting that points up how un-hip Columbo is.

Apr 22, 2020 | Full Review…

The student villains are tiresome brats, but [Peter] Falk is subtle and funny; Columbo Goes to College is a surprisingly solid comeback for this durable character.

Apr 21, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

This is what makes these stories so watchable: the detective's humility.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The stories may be similar... yet they remain engaging thanks to [Peter] Falk's charisma and some first class scripting.
