In "Ransom for a Dead Man," Lee Grant is a high-powered attorney who shoots her husband, then constructs an elaborate kidnapping plot in order to point the feds in the wrong direction. Unfortunately for her, the local cop assigned to the case is none other than Lt. Columbo. Once the kidnapping crosses over into murder and it's under Columbo's jurisdiction- her chances? Not so good. Interestingly, this is the second of two pilots made for the show and you can definitely see the nice details that we all come to know as Columbo-esque. A really fun added feature to the podcast- attorney and writer Bob Ingersoll ("The Law Is a Ass" column, Comicmix.com) is here to analyze the legal details in this one, as well as shed some light on other episodes and how well they'd stand up in court. Also guesting is the mysterious "Jim from Detroit."
