peter falk on metafilter

I think I’m finally going to pony up the five bucks and join Metafilter. There’s a discussion about Peter Falk and whether or not the next Columbo movie will ever be made. I’m sitting here, my cursor circling the Paypal button, thinking this (getting involved in Metafilter) might be the biggest mistake in my life. Shit. I don’t know what to do. I feel like I owe it to my friend Peter to chime in, but I’m afraid that once I cross over to being a Metafilter commenter that the little bit of sleep time that I’ve been able to save for myself will dry up will dry up to nothing… In fact, it just occurred to me that this could all be a setup. Someone could have posted this Peter Falk thing for the sole purpose of luring me in. Someone out there wants to see my sucked down the Metafilter hole.

    Do you ever follow Ask Metafilter? It’s brilliant.

    It’s a slippery slope

    Do you agree that there will never be another Columbo because of his age?

    Personally, I feel as though which ever company owns the rights to the “Columbo” character plans to wait until Falk (a big smoker) is dead, and then cast a new young actor in the part, in hopes of milking it for a few more dollars. My guess is that there will be a “Finding the New Columbo” reality series tie-in too. The thought of it makes me ill. It’s the nature of the business though. The studios don’t exist to churn out good work. They exist to create value for their shareholders.

    And, Roger Dodger, the prospect of meeting up with you has sealed the deal. I will be joining once my tax refund check is here.
