I want you to stop editing the Columbos. I watched Troubled Waters on DVD and there is a whole scene edited out! I know it's missing because I remember it on TV. The scene is the one where the magician explains to the police that a real gun has been subsituted with his fake gun for his performance. THe way it has been cut leaves the viewer confused as to why the magician scene is in there in the first place! I love Columbo as is. We're paying tons of money for these old pictures that would be sitting around earning no money so please give us what we want. SO QUIT EDITING will you!!! We're paying for this and I thought CDs hoave so much room, why edit? Also lose the Mrs. Columbo, that'll give you more room so you won't have to edit! I will of course purchase season 5 but if anyone ever comes out with a totally unedited version of all, I will probably purchase those!
Mrs. Columbo does not interest Columbo fans. With this mismatched formula in mind, the people at Universal might also include a live performance of Wayne Newton as an extra to their documentary on Isaac Newton.
FORGOTTEN LADY(An aging actress kills her husband because he refuses to pay for the production of her comeback show)
*Spoilerish* This was one of the most far-fetched episodes. The wealthy husband is shown, at first, to be heartless for refusing to finance his "famous" wife's dream of getting back into show biz. The reveal was, he knew she was losing her memory and ill(can't remember if she had alzheimer or another diagnosed illness). Her husband wanted to spend time with and take care of her. The far-fetched part was how the suspect/wife was able to commit this complex crime. The worst part was the fact she got away with it.
A CASE OF IMMUNITY(A foreign ambassador steals money and murder's two people. Columbo must solve the crime and find a way around his immunity)
IDENTITY CRISES(Espionage with a twist. A spy is killed by his contact)
A MATTER OF HONOR(Columbo, while on vacation in Mexico, helps the policia de Mexico solve a case where the murder weapon is a bull)
NOW YOU SEE HIM(A master magician kills his employer who attempts to blackmail him after discovering he was a German camp guard during WWII)*FIVE STAR EPISODE*
LAST SALUTE TO THE COMMODORE(Commodore Swanson attempts to sell his ship building business out from under his son-in-law)*A very interesting who-done-it episode*
I know, being the intelligent people that you are, you can read the comments here and elsewhere about the total lack of extras that have appeared in these Columbo sets up to now (repeat after me..."Mrs. Columbo" is not an extra), and if you haven't figured it out yet, you're really starting to irritate us fans. Now I know like all large impersonal corporations you really don't care about the bottom-line (cough) and only want to see your customer base happy and content. Therefore I would like to point out to you that Season 6 has only 3 episodes - half the number of Seasons 4 & 5, and that means 3 fewer episdoes you have to pay to clean-up and restore! Now wouldn't it be nice to fill up all that empty space on those disks with the extras we really want to see - interviews, outtakes, the original NBC Mystery Movie opening (hey, you and NBC are family now since Vivendi owns you both)...I'll even let you throw in a "Mrs. Columbo" episode if you provide the other items! Think how happy your customers will be. Think how happy you will be when you can get away with charging the same price for 1/2 the normal number of episodes. It sounds to me like a win-win for both of us!
