In Columbo Cries Wolf, Ian Buchanan is one half of the inexplicably popular skin mag, Bachelor's World. When the other half, Diedre Hall, decides she's had enough of his philandering with the magazine's models and wants to sell out, he kills her. Or does he? Well, yes, eventually. But before that, the two of them spend almost the whole running time of this episode making Columbo look like a chump, as he chases after dead ends and clues that lead nowhere. Jon and guest Tim Turner (Bitter Bastard Nerdcast) disliked this one waaaaay less than RJ. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
