Editorial Reviews

Peter Falk is back in all his rumpled, trenchcoat-wearing glory as police lieutenant Columbo in six captivating two-hour TV movies that aired between 1991-1993. Join the four-time Primetime Emmy® winner for “just one more thing” as he goes after sure-footed suspects with his offbeat wit, wily charm, and dogged persistence. Featuring such amazing guest stars as Faye Dunaway (Bonnie and Clyde), Penny Johnson Jerald (24), Little Richard, George Hamilton (Dynasty), Louis Herthum (The Last Exorcism) and Rip Torn (Men In Black), it’s a must-see-three-disc collection that will keep you on the edge of your seat with one of the mystery genre’s most beloved icons.

5.0 out of 5 stars List of episodes November 10, 2010
The episodes mentioned by the previous reviewer aired from 1994 to 2003. The episodes which should be featured on this set are as follows:

1. "Caution: Murder Can Be Hazardous to Your Health" - Feb. 20, 1991 (with George Hamilton)
2. "Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star" - April 29, 1991 (Dabney Coleman, Little Richard cameo)
3. "Death Hits the Jackpot" - Dec. 15, 1991 (Rip Torn, Gary Kroeger)
4. "No Time to Die" - March 15, 1992 (Joanna Going, Thomas Calabro)
5. "A Bird in the Hand" - Nov. 22, 1992 (Greg Evigan, Tyne Daly)
6. "It's All in the Game" - Oct. 31, 1993 (Faye Dunaway)

The next episode, "Butterfly in Shades of Grey" with William Shatner, was shown in Finland in Nov. 1993, but not in the US until Jan. 1994. I'm guessing it will appear on the final set, 1994-2003.

Of the above six, my favorites are 1, 3 and 6. But all of them are entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even the "weak" episode has something going for it! March 20, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Getting straight to the point, "No Time to Die" is the lesser installment in this six-episode compilation. "Columbo" rarely strayed from its formula. In most episodes during Act I, the murder and the murderer is revealed. For the rest of the show, it becomes a cat-and-mouse game between the detective and the culprit as the show reaches a satisfying conclusion, usually with Columbo solving the crime in a most unorthodox manner.

"No Time to Die" doesn't follow the pattern, with a kidnapping as the central focus of the plot. While this is different, the installment is rather slow-moving, with several questions left unanswered. However, it's still "Columbo" and any time a viewer gets to see Falk in his trademark role, it's worth a look.

With that said, the remaining episodes feature great performances from guests Emmy-winner-for-the-show Faye Dunaway, Tyne Daly (deserving of one), Greg Evigan, Steve Forrest, George Hamilton (second time as a murderer), Dabney Coleman, and a deliciously-evil Rip Torn.

The one with Daly, Evigan, and Forrest, by the way, features more than the usual single death, making it a landmark one in the long-running series' history.

No extras on the disc but each episode is presented in widescreen format, something that no previous compilation had.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning about widescreen format! May 31, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was disappointed to find these DVDs are widescreen format. Why? Well they were shot 4:3. To make them widescreen they cropped the top and bottoms of the images! Now I've got to decide between the recordings I made off of the TV (low quality but the entire image) or these cropped but higher quality shows. I'm not happy. Doing this sort of trick is about as bad as the Colorization fad some years ago. You might think the DVDs are modern, but you are getting less than you paid for!

5.0 out of 5 stars Columbo Doesn't Disappoint February 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd been anticipating this latest installment of the Columbo series to add to my collection. I wasn't disappointed! "Murder Can Be Hazardous To Your Health" guest-starring George Hamilton, making his second appearance as a murderer in a Columbo episode, is very good. "Death Hits The Jackpot" is one of my favorites (a chimpanzee helps solve the case, what's not to like?) and Tyne Daly gives a great performance in "A Bird In The Hand".
I was a little disappointed with "It's All In The Game" (although I know many would disagree with me). The murderer's method and alibi are nearly identical to a season one episode "Suitable For Framing". Also, the flirtation between Faye Dunaway's character and Columbo is a little off-putting for those who consider Columbo's adoration and dedication to the mysterious Mrs. Columbo a core part of his character. All in all this is a great collection. Already looking forward to the last installment including "Butterfly In Shades Of Grey" with William Shatner and "Ashes to Ashes" with frequent Columbo guest star Patrick McGoohan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Columbo, but..... February 14, 2011
By Susan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Overall, this movie series is really good, I love the show and the character, and Peter Falk is one in a million. I was a little disappointed in these later movies - to keep up with modern morals in TV, there were racier sex scenes and more profanity, and Columbo allows the Faye Dunaway character to kiss him and he's excited about it... that wouldn't have happened in the early shows of Columbo, and I prefer the modest, almost prudish, character of the early days; they certainly don't make them like that anymore!

4.0 out of 5 stars Columbo: Mystery Movie Collection 1991-1993 August 1, 2011
I love the Columbo series. Product arrived ahead of time and was in great condition. I do not like the widescreen view. Takes away from the movie... everyone and everthing looks skinny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cropped to fit modern screen January 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The two later Columbo movie sets, 1991 through 2003, were cropped on the top and bottom so that the image will match the shape of a modern TV screen. (The two earlier sets, 1989 and 1990, were not cropped.) I really wish people would speak out against this reprehensible practice, which amounts to mutilating works of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Columbo keeps going February 23, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In this boxset, we can see Columbo being a master detective. In my personal view, killers in these episodes seem not as "educated" as 1990 boxset, instead they seem to get back to 70s tricks depending on newer technology. George Hamilton's character makes the same & old mistake, the broken watch trick, and the poisining through a bottle cork as you can see.

In my personal opinion, as most "Columbo Mania" would agree, the cork poisoning trick done by the famous attorney is way too stupid compared to the same trick done by a food critique back in 70s and you know who. Why didn't he abondon poisoning cork and bottle somewhere else?

All through these episodes, Columbo seems moving and acting quicker than before though he's getting older. We can estimate that must be based on his accumulated experience, which include all of his "tying up loose ends", "report to my boss", etc along with his signature dogged persistence and observation done by his own old style. All of these make new technology and gimicks no match at all to him.

"No Time to Die" is the very first episode that we are not told the criminal in the beginning instead Columbo and we chase who the criminal is. Also for the first time for us, we can see when Columbo really leads his fellow LAPDs and what he does in the headquater.

Only one my personal disappointment in these episodes is that I don't see Columbo eating chili!! Yet, I amm compromised because he still cracks hardboiled eggs and also he invented peanuts butter & raisin sandwiches!!

So it seems like really "just one more thing" in terms of DVD release. I will be one of many many many "Columbo mania" who will order it when released.
