Editorial Reviews

Legendary Peter Falk is a four-time Primetime Emmy Award-winner for his iconic role as the beloved, trenchcoat-wearing Police Lieutenant Columbo. Columbo is the landmark series that inspired a genre. And now, for the first time ever, all 69 episodes from its seven seasons and all 24 television movies are together in this 34-disc anthology. Every criminal, every innocent victim (and some not-so-innocent ones), and every wily deduction are here in one definitive collection. Seemingly befuddled but always brilliant, the cigar-chomping detective will have you following the clues and asking "just one more thing" until the last case is cracked.

Note: This set contains 34 discs which are contained in 8 cases.

And I bought it twice.

This is The Complete Columbo -- all 69 episodes, for roughly a buck twenty-five per, including tax. It's an amazing (Amazon?) deal on *the* signature police procedural of the 1970s. And given that a third of the episodes run from 1989 - 2003, well beyond that decade.

What I mean by buying it twice, is that I collected the individual DVD releases largely as they came out: I got the 1970s series for my wedding (yes, really) and then as new ones were sold, I bought them. Then, when the complete slipcased versions that are in this set released on my son's 20th birthday, I knew I'd be getting it to replace my aging versions. Now I have.

This set has every episode, including the original "Prescription: Murder" and the pilot "Ransom for a Dead Man." Then there are 43 episodes from the 1970 "regular" NBC series, and 24 of the later TV movies from ABC. You can get details from the usual sources -- some ran as 90 minutes with commercials, some were two hours -- and etc. etc. The only technical point: when the "first" or "old" DVDs came out, they ended up in 10 cases --

1. Season One
2. Season Two
3. Season Three
4. Season Four
5. Season Five
6. Seasons Six and Seven
7. 1989 TV Movies
8. 1990 TV Movies
9. 1991-1993 TV Movies
10. 1994-2003 TV Movies

-- with of course several discs in each DVD case.

But with the new release of the complete series, there are eight cases, achieved by grouping 7+8 and 9+10 of the "first" / "old" DVD cases. But the discs themselves, within the cases, are set-up the same. So you'll have eight DVD cases (six white from the 1970s, two black for the 1980s - 2000s) in one slipcase box.

O-K, so the evidence would NEVER hold up in a real court; and real cops aren't as nice; intelligent; or as conscientious as Columbo - things that would normally turn me off of any other show....but Columbo is much more than any other show! Despite my opening criticisms, this is a show that one can become totally engrossed in. It keeps you engrossed from beginning to end- not with gimmicks, like action or gore, but with intrigue. Yes, I said intrigue- even though we know at the start who committed the crime; the intrigue enters when we try and fathom how Columbo will solve it! Truly a brilliant concept for a show, and so well executed in this series. In addition, there is always amusement/humor at Columbo's mannerisms; attire; car; dog, etc.

But wait- there's MORE! This series is a treasure trove of past acting greats whose names most generation-Xers such as myself may have heard of, but we have never really had the chance to see perform. These were actors and actresses who took the craft seriously and had some real talent- unlike most of the ilk that inhabits Hollywood today. Sheesh! I'll give you 18 actors of today for one Jack Cassidy!(Who is in three episodes!)

There's even more! Something about this show that I can't even put into words. It's the kind of show that you just want to sit and watch endlessly on a rainy night. It's pure entertainment, as it is so engrossing, and transports you to another world- as only the most well-made shows can. Not to mention the nostalgic aspect- as we get to see the cars and appliances and decor and fashion of the upper-middle-c lass-and-above world of the period (Which, in my case, brings back so many memories of how much better the world was then).

This set of Columbo is wonderful I was really surprised at the Quality of the episodes we have viewed. Could not be happier and look forward to completing the entire series. We have seen all before but can never get enough of this outstanding program. I was going to order the individual seasons on DVD since the VHS we had was getting old and most had commercials. I was willing to wait for this truly complete package and am convinced I made the right decision.

If you are a Columbo Fan this is a Must Have. As I said the quality is outstanding!

We have been long time fans of Columbo and had most episodes on VHS from The Original Showing. We now have a complete set of this Great Show.

Thanks to Amazon for this Treasure.

This is a recent purchase. I've viewed two episodes so far.

PROS...The picture and sound quality are way beyond what I expected. Everything is crystal clear. No commercials either. There are no double-sided discs. Every disc is nicely secured in its case. Nothing falls out or flops around when I open the case.

MINOR CONS...I would have preferred more detailed information about each episode, such as which main actor starred that week. Some write-ups mention it, but others don't. I have to remove some discs first to read the synopsis covered by that disc. I was hoping to be able to locate and watch my favorite episodes first, but the synopsis really doesn't help me to remember which is which. A detailed pamphlet would have been appreciated. I've solved part of the problem by turning the paper jackets inside out, putting the synopsis facing the outside of the cases.

All-in-all I'm very pleased with this purchased. All Columbo fans will be thrilled to receive this set as a gift or to buy it for themselves. At $79.49 the price can't be beat.
