Are these real Columbo episodes or did we make them up?

Thank you very much for the time.

Columbo was TV's quirkiest detective, so it's no surprise he turned the whole genre of crime drama upside down. From 1971 to 2003, we watched Columbo solve murders in riveting episodes with names like "Murder By the Book," "Double Exposure," "Troubled Waters" and other titles that inspired intrigue.

Out of all these episodes, a handful had the detective's name right in the title. Here, we play a game to see if you can detect which of these Columbo titles are real from the ones we made up, in attempts to playfully mirror the show's special humor. Good luck!

All of the real titles were taken from the later episodes, which were of much inferior quality, although the ones chosen were generally the best of the bunch.

10 out of 10. Watching every episode of Columbo multiple times comes in handy.

8/10! Number 2 was the last episode, and the phony Number 3's full title would have been "Columbo Likes To Boogie On The Disco Rooound"...LOL to all '70's kids!

5/10 but all guesses. I really don't know episode names on any show.

7/10. Before I took this quiz, I predicted I would get 50% {5/10.} But I pleasantly surprised myself by getting two more right than I predicted! I've watched both the old and new episodes, {most not all of them from the beginning, but after they'd been running 30 minutes, or so.} I don't know why, exactly, but it used to bother me seeing his character be this way. But over time, I had a change of heart, {obviously.} I think the reason why, is because it bothered me to see him bothering other people. Until I realized that's his nature, he's supposed to be doing this! Getting under people's skin, is one of his {unique} ways of helping him to solve the mystery.

I was 10/10 but for me it was an easy quiz since i've watched every Columbo episode at least once.
