Not everything that is older is better...this one is DEFINITELY better. When the first episode of Columbo premiered, 'Prescription: Murder', it broke the mold on police shows. Not before or since has a show managed to give away so much, so early, at the beginning while still holding our attention for an hour and a half.

I just found out by chance that if you find a #toot online, somewhere on an instance that you don't know, but want to fav or boost , just copy the full url of it in your #mastodon search bar, and you have it. Totally amazed. :astonished:
