ABOUT COLUMBO AND MYSELF.
*Lights cigar* Hello everybody! I am Lieutenant Columbo, Homicide detective for the LAPD. (No I am not a real LAPD detective). For those who don't know, Lieutenant Columbo was a homicide detective series that ran from the early 70s, to 2003. Played by legend Peter Falk, I fell in love with the show and the character, and I am only 17 which makes me quite an old soul, xD. I wanted to keep the franchise alive with this simulator, so I pose as him on the forums. Most of the topics and posts I make are in character, unless it is something serious.
So Lieutenant Columbo, I am Italian American, and have been working under the rank Lieutenant for a long time, I drive around in a lovely Peugeot 403. You take care of the car, it takes care of you! Same goes for my Spanish tailored jacket Other officers say to get a new one, but there's still plenty of wear in this fella! My life wouldn't be complete without "Dog", dull name, but I just couldn't think of anything else for him! He's my partner in investigation ;). And then there is my wife, people never see her, but why would she come on an investigation with me anyway? No! She is at home taking care of the flowers in our yard.. I am really looking forward to this simulator, and a great fan base of the people behind it. Oh and for those that are always curious, I do have a first name, but my wife is the only one who really addresses me by it, you can see it on my badge sometimes, but my full name is Frank Columbo ;)
Oh and just one more thing...Here are the people I have gotten to know really well here and consider good friends/people within 10-13 and on Steam

Frequently Asked Questions:
Why do you call yourself Lieutenant Columbo and pose as him on the forums? ---Like I have stated in my interests and above, I pose as Columbo because I am a huge fan of him and the show, especially his actor, Peter Falk, I still remember watching my first Columbo episode with my granddad, aged 10-11, and falling in love with the franchise, me and my granddad love a beer or 2 on a afternoon at my grandparents house to watch an episode. Which is why I wanted to just be his character on the forums and show my dedication to the great show it was. And YES, the name is Columbo, I know that my user name is Colombo, which was a spelling error that I can't change.
Why do you like old movies, music, and the old school of doing things?
Simple answer to that is, I don't know, god just made me a person who grew up to be a teenager who wasn't into the modern stuff, (accept gaming and ICT) But to like old music, and films, just like the Columbo TV series, I love old music, Elvis Presley being my favourite artist of all time, and I also love 70s and 80s music. I also love music going back to 50s and some even 40s, I also love old films, mainly war movie classics, "Bridge too far" "Battle of Britian" "The great escape" "Dam busters" I also like many other movies and stuff, which is in the next questions ;)
What modern stuff do you like, and is there any other films you like?
Of course! I do like some modern music, Uptown Funk, The Nights, Cheerleader, Happy, and others, I like the TV series "The Walking Dead" and I also like gaming, and ICT, my Steam name is "NightBeauty" for those that want to know. (If you want to friend me, message me saying your 10-13 forum name so I know its someone from here, I don't accept random FRs.
Who is the REAL you?
The real me, I am Doug, and I live in the United Kingdom and I am 17 years old, I love German shepherds and cats, along with spending time with family and friends, and enjoy travelling, I love seeing my family and friends in Nashville Tennessee, as well as going to other places. No I don't not have a wife, I only say I do when in character of Columbo.
I live with this motto, "Some people will shake your hand, some will try to break it"
