Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 10

The last “season” wasn’t really a season, but a collection of specials that aired over 13 years, with the last few each having 3 years in between them. Due to the spread, this season ends up very varied and quite interesting, definitely a strong endpoint for the series. The first episode contrasts Columbo’s age with…

Thoughts on Avengers: Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War… where to start with such a rather big movie. The movie really has a lot of everything… characters, plot threads, run-time, jokes, action… and for me it managed to not feel overly long. Neither the action nor the character moments dragged on too much while watching the movie. Obviously someone new to…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 9

The season uses some new elements in the episodes that break up the usual formula a bit, but in contrast to some earlier episodes, it usually works in favor of the episode. The first episode has multiple visualized dream sequences where Columbo and the killer are shown as static background elements (in a blue tint,…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 8

Fans had to wait a long time for new episodes after season 7, as this one started airing almost 11 years later. Despite only being 4 episodes short, the season was a nice return to the series, with interesting cases/killers. Columbo’s dog makes a short appearance in one of the episodes, but it’s only for one…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 7

A very diverse season, very enjoyable. It starts out strong with an episode that on the one hand has a very sympathetic killer and on the other hand the final clues for the solution of the case were very fitting for the theme episode. With the second episode I very strongly recommend not watching it…

Anime Impressions – Overlord Season 1

Another “player is stuck in an MMO game” series, I hear you ask… well yes and no. Compared to other shows like that, the scenario of Overlord has something special that I really like. For one it takes the scenario and limits it to one person (so far) and it happens not just during the…

First Impressions – Huawei P20 Pro

So this weekend I got my new phone to replace my Nexus 6P due to its failing battery (started turning off at 20% charge a while ago and it was getting progressively worse). Initial setup was pretty straightforward, the only thing that didn’t work on first try was setting up the Huawei Account, as the…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 6

Well this was an extremely short season… only 3 episodes. All of them were rather good though, with the first one standing out due to the actor chosen for the bad guy: William Shatner, playing an actor that is famous for playing a TV detective… pretty meta, but used in a fun way. Walter Koenig…

Series Re-Watch: Columbo Season 5

Another 6-episode season, though still longer than the next ones. The season had several highlights, though a comparatively weak ending, but more on that later. The first episode was already something special since it ends without the arrest of the murderer.  Location-wise 2 episodes stand out: The second episode takes place in the suari embassy…
