  1. Here’s an interesting/amusing rundown on something I’ve sometimes contemplated about the Columbo episodes.

    What happens to the businesses that were owned, franchised, or managed by the killers after Columbo catches them? What happens to Brimmer’s otherwise top-tier private investigation firm? What happens to Milo Janis’s sleazy gym operations? And what happens to the first-rate Carsini’s Winery that Adrian ran?

    Columbo: 5 Unfortunate Aftermaths of “Any Old Port in a Storm”
    JUNE 5, 2016 |

    An exciting meal wasn’t the only thing ruined when Columbo solves the murder in “Any Old Port in a Storm”. Businesses will be closed, careers ended, and the line at the unemployment line grows longer. Here are 5 unfortunate aftermaths of “Any Old Port in a Storm.”

    #1: Adrian’s favorite restaurant will lose a star
    The unnamed French restaurant seen in the final act will be forever known as the place Adrian Carsini’s last supper before going to prison. His public rant will spread rumors the restaurant serves iodine and liquid filth. A place that doesn’t put prices on their menus can’t be known as a place the rich go to jail. The place should be thankful Yelp wasn’t invented yet.

    #2: The “Society” will have to find another Man of the Year
    The enigmatic wine organization, simply known as the “Society”, will be drowned in embarrassment and shame once everyone realizes they nominated a killer. Trying to recoup their credibility in the wine and cheese crowd, they’ll quickly rush to find another recipient of the will-be meaningless award.

    #3: Carsini Wineries will be making the Marino Brothers carbonated rosé
    Without the Carsini brothers, the winery is without ownership and management. It will quickly be shut down and all staff unemployed. Unfortunately, the courts will allow the Marino Brothers to purchase the business and their newest carbonated wines can go into production. Many of the original staff, including the quality control team, will not be asked to return.

    #4: The priceless, $5,000 bottle of wine will be lost to history
    The only bottle of wine in Adrian’s collection that did not turn into vinegar was perhaps his $5,000 bottle of wine corked in the year 1850. With all the confusion between his confession, arraignment, and the judicial system, the wine will disappear into obscurity. Remember, Adrian had no use of it and said he didn’t want anyone else to have it. Adrian will win this one.

    #5: Karen will be waiting for Adrian, forever!
    Stalker alert! Karen, the unindicted co-conspirator, has nothing else. This includes her position when they quickly close the winery. But she will wait for Adrian, including writing letters he’ll never open. Adrian will feel safest inside the prison where the closest thing to wine he will ever have is that’s made from juice, garbage bags, and dirty socks.

  2. Oh goodie, I’ve always wanted easy and fast access to this episode. I do own it on dvd, but with the internet it’s just all the more convenient. Maybe I’ll enjoy it with some cabernet later.

    That I bought from the Marino brothers.

    The sixty-nine cents a gallon Marino brothers.

    Who don’t make wine.

    They don’t even make good mouthwash.

    No amount of liquid filth can ruin this exciting episode however, despite its appearance in the episode.
